Tired Thursday


"Your cat Megat vomitted about 10 times today!" grandma said. Although I seriously doubt that it would be 10 times, I brought Megat to the vet anyway as he did vomit yesterday as well. (5 times was grandma's magic number).

The vet took a blood test as he said it could be kidney problems and checked Megat's gums as well. "Pale" was the verdict but his test came up ok. No problems there except for a little dehydration as he had been vomitting for 2 days in a row. So now he has twice a week sub q until things go back to normal.

Dr T advised that I stop the Cyproheptadine - an anti-histamine that is sued to treat cat with no appetite as well as feline asthma. Dr T felt that the 2 mg may be too much. So we got instead Appelin, a sweet syrup, to stimulate his appetite. Dr T also gave us Cimetidine and Metoclopramide to suppress his vomitting. But we need only to give him these 2 pills if he vomits again. For now he has to take, like Toro, 1/4 Alutab twice a day for about 10 days. He also gets CANIGEST to help his tummy feel better.

Dr T injected him with some Metomide for his nausea as well. I hope he feels better soon.
