My sweet girl is sick and we have no clue what is wrong with her. Blood tests have ruled out problems with her liver and kidneys but show that there are abnormal things happening. We are off to the vets in a minute. They are going to give Jackie intravenous antibiotics, a painkiller, and try to get fluids in to her as she shows signs of being dehydrated. They will probably do more tests to look for feline AIDS and pancreatic damage. She has not eaten in days. Except when I force feed her..
So please keep your fingers crossed for us. Jackie is only eight so there is still a lot of years left in her I hope. She almost took the vet and two vet nurses down yesterday when they tried to take her blood from her jugular vein.
We went back to the vets this morning where they gave Jackie antibiotics, a painkiller/anti-inflammatory and 20 mls of hydration under her skin. She still won’t eat voluntarily. I have had to force feed her a couple of times today – special food that they give the animals when they are in the hospital. She is very unimpressed with me doing that. She isn’t drinking either. If she is still like this tomorrow they will start doing more tests I think. It is very worrying as my sweet girl loves her food. It doesn’t appear she is in pain at the moment. So for now we just don’t know what it is that is going on with her.
I can’t tell you all how much I appreciate all your well wishes and prayers for my girl. I will keep you updated when I know more.
