I have not been feeling good at all the past few days. I have been having some problems with my gums being inflamed. Meowmy got some medicine for me at the vet last week. I started picking at my food but was still eating until Friday. I stopped eating completely on Friday and stopped drinking too.The medicine gave me diarrhea. Meowmy tried to give me fluids through a syringe to keep me from being dehydrated. She tried to force feed me some food but I wouldn't have anything to do with it. I barely let her give me water. I started going down hill on Sunday (Yesterday) and was having trouble walking and standing up. I kept stumbling and falling over. Meowmy called my doctor Sunday night and he told her to give me some Gatorade to help bring my sugar level up since he thought it might be hypoglycemia from me not eating. She managed to get several syringes full down me. About 1:30 this morning, meowmy checked on me and gave me some more Gatorade. She noticed that my eyes weren't tracking like they should and after she gave me the liquid. I fell over on my side and never even tried to get up. I stayed there for a few minutes. It was then meowmy decided that I needed to see a doctor. So we headed out to the emergency vet. I was extremely lethargic and my breathing was very shallow.
While at the emergency vet, they took blood, a urine sample, took my blood pressure and gave me fluids.My blood work was normal other than signs of dehydration. My urinalysis was normal. My blood pressure was normal. The vet checked my eyes out and my pupils would not respond to light and the had been dilated all day.My body temperature was very low and they gave me hot water bottles to keep me warm. I was shivering from being so cold. My heart rate is also elevated. They gave me medicine to help stop the diarrhea but it didn't work. I might just have a serious infection and hopefully that can be treated with antibiotics if that is what is going on. The fluids seemed to help me a little and I meowed all the way to my regular vets office.
I got there and he looked over the blood test results. He hospitalized me. As of this evening after the vet's office closed, I hadn't improved at all and was still very lethargic. The vets aren't sure what is going on with me and I'm a very sick kitty. They are trying to force feed me some highly nutritious food in hopes that I will start eating again. Keep your paws crossed!
My meowmy is very worried about me and hopes I feel better soon. I hope I feel better soon too. I'm just so sick. Please purr and say purrayers for me to get better and for the doctors to figure out what is going on with me too.
Love & purrz,
