Thank you to everybody for all the purrs and good thoughts you have been sending my way. It is hard to think that this time last week I was so ill that mum and dad didn't think I would make it.
The Clavaseptin pills I had been taking were making me feel very ill and weak with really bad diarrhoea and vomiting so I had to cut short the 10 day course.
I had an emergency appointment and saw another vet who gave me an antibiotic injection which lasts 14 days. Mum and dad didn't know at the time that it was Convenia and they didn't know about all the bad side effects it can cause. Within 24 hours I was very weak and kept lying down after every few footsteps. I laid on the bed stretched out looking almost comatose. They were going to take me in through the night but were afraid they might be told that nothing could be done for me. They decided to wait until the morning and kept telling me how much they loved me. In the morning I was slightly better and have continued to improve every day. After being so ill they have told the vet they don't want me to have any more antibiotics. I still have blood in my urine but it is not causing me any problems. It was only discovered by chance when my blood and urine was being rechecked after being on my thyroid pills.
My vet has sent my urine away to see if a culture can be grown. If nothing shows there, I will have an ultrasound scan.
I have been taking Mirtazapine tablets to help me want to eat. I was taking one every 24 hours, but when I ate 6 x 85g cans (approximately 16 ounces total) of food in 24 hours mum said it needed to be cut back to every 36 hours.
I have started to take short walks in the fields again. Mum and dad carry me there and back so I don't tire myself. Hopefully I will soon be able to lead the way again!
Okay, on to my easy Sunday.
I haven't felt like practising my selfies this week so this is the next best thing.
