My precious Douche is sick Two days ago we came home to 4 small piles of bile vomit. I found diahrea when I cleaned the litters and then we saw Douche vomitting. He has vomitted 12 or so times in two days, and still has the runny poop. He is lethargic and is crying when the other cats step on his stomach, when usually they make happy cat piles. We brought him to the vet yesterday, we had xrays taken of his entire body, and then a full blood work done. His poor hind legs are sooooo bruised form the blood tests. I craddled the little champ when they were drawing his blood (didnt want the vet to put him in the typical death grip) and he purred the entire time and nuzzled my neck. Blood work came back completely normal other then low potasium levels from all the vomitting. He had an inflamed bowel. The vet doesnt know whats wrong with him and he hasnt eaten in two days, he might eat a few treats unenthusiastically, but he will bring them right back up. The vet prescribed cerenia, and he got a shot of it at the vet, along with metronidazole for the runs. If he doesnt perk up in a day or two, we are going to the specialist for an ultrasound. Its so tricky with Douche because of his HCM and severe murmur, he cannot be stressed out too much or sedated in any way. Its so frustrating not knowing whats wrong with my baby. He hasnt had any food change for his whole 6 yrs of life, other then sneaking 3 or so bites of Berlins kitten food. They all get table scraps of fish or chicken but thats been happening for years and has never upset him. Im keeping a close eye on him, good thing I threw out my back since Im home all day. I hope the medication works, so far no vomitting.
