I went back because my appetite is not good. I didn't eat much yesterday at all. Today, I got a check up and here is what the doctor believes:
1) My small intestine is inflamed. It looks thickend. It could be FIV+ related or IBD.
2) My stomach was filled with Gas. He can't explain why. It was also empty.
3) There was poop in my colon, which was good.
4) My liver is very large.
5) He doesn't know why I'm having trouble swallowing or eating, he doesnt' feel the inflammation in my mouth is that bad.
6) An x ray was done. I have an enlarged heart. (You always knew I was a big hearted guy)
7) Possible Fatty liver disease is what he's concenred about, though I am eating a bit, though not as much.
Whats being done:
I'm on Metronazole. 2x a day.
I am now getitng 100 ml of Subq every 35 hours. They have to be careful because of my heart.
I also have bupronex to take to help make me feel better-I get it squirted into my mouth.
He suggested a raw diet. Supplimenting it with other cat food is fine-he told mommy it's fine for her to chop up steak and chicken for me raw while looking for a raw I like.
He suggested a possible sonogram of my heart and liver/abdomen. That might happen Tuesday, we'll see how i do the next couple days.
Mommy is worried and tired. When I came home I did make mommy happy by eating some ff chunky chicken, and then some chicken baby food and then just a bit of plain grilled salmon that daddy bought home for me.
Purrs are very much needed.
If any girlcat wants to comfort me and hold my paw-you'd be very welcome about now.
My new little foster sister tried to steal my food and Smokie tried to steal my salmon though he had his own plate already.
love and light,

OH BOY!!! Ruffy...please listen carefully. when I had an inflamed liver, metronidazole gave me a seizure and sent me into jaundice. I don't know if that medication is a good idea right now. I know it's used a lot for kitties with IBD but the warning on this site clearly states it should not be used with kitties that have liver disease: "Animals with underlying liver disease are more prone to metronidazole toxicity."
