Intestinal Woes Take Another Of Our Greys


Recommended Posts

Second pup in less than 5 months left for heaven today...Bess joined Charlotte who paved the way in July. Ultrasound showed a mass which was the cause of the severe anemia and most likely, the weight loss that just wouldn't stop. She was on pred and Vitamin B for about a month and we knew it was a stalling move but still appreciated the extra time it bought us while we got used to the idea our 12 1/2 year old sweetie was going to be leaving us. Cooper, with us since early September when Charlotte died, is looking a bit bereft.

I'm really sorry for your loss. Where was the mass? What symptoms, other than weight loss, did you see? Did you have any bloodwork done? We're still trying to figure out what's wrong with James' gut. He's lost 6 pounds in the last month. :(

My Kowalla left me of anemic, weight loss, and some kind of intestinal mass/tumor.. Most likely cancer (presumably)

 

My baby was just 7. It hurts so bad to let them go :(

We took her to the vet for the weight loss and fussiness eating...bloodwork showed very low red blood count. Next day, took her to specialist for ultrasound which revealed a mass in her intestines (in the middle, I think) that was inoperable because of the anemia (need protein in the blood to heal.) They put her on prednisone and Vitamin B shots as well as cerenia for nausea. She kept losing weight and when we lost her yesterday she was 48 lbs, from her all time high of 71 (several years ago.) I tried everything to keep her interested in food but whatever was growing inside her was sapping all the nutrients. I implore you to get some bloodwork done for starters.

That's so sad! I'm sorry!!!

 

We had bloodwork done. CBC was normal, but the mal-absorption came back with some abnormalities. I don't want to steal your thread, but the rest of our story is here, if you're interested: http://forum.greytalk.com/index.php/topic/301427-orange-muscous-y-poop/page-3

 

Again, I'm very sorry for your losses.

Wish I didn't have a thread to steal, Rachel. Please, feel free to ask any questions. If I can offer any help, I do so gladly.

Jean
