Poor Ike

Poor Ike is crashed out on the futon, but he is acting a bit perkier. The vet thinks there is a possibility he is having a pancreatitis attack or that he came into contact with a bacteria at Clean Run. The vet is testing for both, plus checking his liver levels, ect. They should have the blood work back by tomorrow morning.

They gave him subcutaneous fluids and something called Cerenia to calm his stomach. No food tonight and more Cerenia tomorrow plus some bland food stuffs. Depending upon what the bloodwork shows, they might put him on an antibiotic.

Poor guy, I am sure the Serenia will do the trick though- it is supposed to work very well for sick tummies.

Ike says thank you, ladies. He is still out of sorts, but a wee bit better. Huge sigh of relief. The serenia stuff does appear to work wonders!
