Huston Update 9/9


Recommended Posts

9/9 Calcium normal. Recheck in a week. Here's hoping! He is just about back to normal :)

 

 

9/5 p.m. He had a seizure half an hour after I dropped him off :cry1 Bit his tongue, etc. Vet just took him for a walk and he is fine but he'll stay there the rest of the day.

 

I started the compounded calcitriol last week and I have not had a good feeling about it from the beginning. Back on the good stuff.

 

 

9/5

He's at the vet for a little bit. Scared the heck out of me at 2 a.m. Came in from the yard on 3 legs. The leg he was holding up was in muscle spasms. I gave him 2 Tums and some calcitriol and he went to sleep (I couldn't) and when he got up he was fine. I took him in for a blood test and vet wanted to keep him until he had the results.

 

Good news is that he has gained a little weight :)

 

 

 

8/30

Hund N Flocken a big hit (most likely until I buy a big bag). He even ate breakfast. Here's hoping his bowel likes it as much as his mouth :lol

 

 

8/29

Calcium level in normal range at 11.1. BUN and creatine coming down slightly. Here's hoping. Vet said recheck in two weeks I said one week :)

 

 

 

Some slight symptoms of low calcium this morning and I wanted to take no chances so he is there :(

What signs of possible low calcium was he showing

Apparently this is for high calcium also: when he got up he walked stiff legged in the back for a bit. Then he went to drink water and had what looked like a mini cervical event (lasted about a second). When he laid down after going outside (and he did trot in), his one shoulder muscle twitched. That was enough for me to take him.
