My 12 year old grey woke last night retching. H did this several times. No output at all. No vomit. I got worried after he had done this a dozen times or so. Around 4:30 I decided a vet visit was called for.
Off we went.
They took blood. Took an image and vet said she did not think it is bloat. Said he has gas. He's seems reasonably himself. They gave him a shot for nausea. I fed him breakfast, as vet advised, when we got home about 7am.
Around 11:30 he had some heaving sounds, he got up and stood to do this. Again no vomit. Not super energetic heaving/retching. Normal stool and pee. Normal behavior recently.
Vet says his white blood cells are a little high, but could mean several things.
We already had vet visit scheduled for next week. Vet said don't return today unless he vomits. He's resting again and falling asleep.
