Bujang is going for ultra sound next Tuesday 18 Oct, as part of his annual checkup. He has been feeling nauseous and was given Ranitidine 150mg/10ml x 2, which made him sick and he threw up several times within two days. After consulting with the very knowledgeable ladies from the FELINE CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE FB group for Bujang, it seems even this was too much for him. His Subq of 250 ml may have hurt him a little as well. Fern has been telling me for some weeks that she feels his chest being heavy.
He had a full blood test and his TP is better at 8.6 and his creat has increased from 2.1 to 2.5. It is one point over the high range. But the rest of his numbers are fine and his phosphorus is only 3.6, which is ok. However he is now 6.2 kg from 7.5 kg. And that is only in 10 months. The vet concurs that the weight loss may be too much for 10 months or it could be that I have succeeded in persuading grandma not to feed him every time he asks for it.
He is ok and jumping about, not dehydrated. The vet although had suggested 2x Sub Q because of his 2.5 creatinine. But since he is bout 13.75 pounds, he should get about 130 ml only and 250 ml, it seems is too much for a kitty's kidneys and heart to take from Tanya CRF site, which is the CRF site to go to for information and help.
Nevertheless, as he is not dehydrated, I will not be giving him the subq for now until all his ultra sound and xray are done. I need to know if there is another reason for his drastic weight loss.
