Monida's musings

Hey everyone - just a quick update. I had to take Mo to the emergency vet this afternoon. I'll write more when I get a chance.

Mo is not constipated - she had almost no poo in her colon. Her intestines are inflamed, so it could be colitis, and switching foods might have set it off.

More worrisome is that the vet saw some bunching in her intestines in the xray. That means she may have eaten a string, and it's causing problems. However, it wasn't as bad in the other xray with a different view. The vet said it's very possible it's a foreign body, but if it were she would expect some vomiting, of which mo has had none, or a fever, which she also doesn't have.

She sent me home with some medicine - metronidazole - to see if that will help calm her intestines. If it doesn't work within 48 hours, I need to take her back in.

So that's what I know right now. I really hope it's just the colitis.

We're purring for you Monida, the metronidazole (flagyl) has fantastic anti-inflammatory properties in regards to colitis (as well as being useful for treating giardia)
Hoping at the 48 hour mark you're feeling better!
Purrs PURRS Purrs !
