Guest Peanut Posted August 10, 2008 Share Posted August 10, 2008 For those of you wondering how she was doing after her on going sporadic vomiting issues that resulted in a vet visit. The vet visit resulted into learning that she is going blind in one eye and her lymph nodes were enlarged -- in addition to a guessing game of what was going on. The vet began treatment for a possible ulcer -- 7 days of meds and on a bland diet. When I began to put her back on her regular diet as recommended by the vet, she started to refuse to eat again. That seemed to be the start of the vomiting cycle. So, i gave her what she would eat -- pasta and meat -- to avoid the cycle. Last weekend, she refused to eat breakfast of any kind -- even all her favorites. Did take a noodle and little meat from my hand but that was it. The same day, she struggled with going poo. Not getting the poo out, but holding the squat to do a normal poo. She was shaking really bad and i had to help steady her so she could go. Saturday evening, dbf daughter (6) finally got her to eat and she ate her regular meal of pasta and meat. Since then she's been eating fine and has balance to poo. As of today, her eyes are still getting blurrier and her lymph nodes seem larger -- but those are the only symptoms. Her coat is still dull/shedding and her weight is still down even though she is eating more than she should for her size. DBF thinks she might be loosing again, but she looks the same to me. Her meals consist of a handful of cooked egg noodles (she loves these), 2-4 oz green tripe, and 8-10 ground raw (turkery/chicken/beef) with bone and ground veggies. I've been giving her extra treats and she cleaned out the peanut butter jar last night. She's silly and playful and enjoying our short walk around the block. For 9 1/2 -- that's as long as she can handle for a walk or I have to carry her back. That's are update.... still holding strong and we've been puke free for 4 wks! she's currently snoozing on her bed in front of the slider enjoying the breeze.
