Firstly thank you to everyone for all your good wishes, emails and suggestions on how to help Flynn.
The vet rang me again this morning to check on how he is doing.
I was able to tell him that he started eating about 3pm yesterday and had a reasonable amount, not as much as I would like, but a huge improvement on nothing!
As he has eaten, that means he doesn't have to be hospitalised at this point.
He is peeing and pooping. He still has diarrhoea but not as liquid, more of a cow pat.
I told him my biggest worry is that I had given him a Mirtazapine on Christmas Eve and also the night before that, neither of which had any effect. I was afraid that if he felt a bit better from the Zantac injections it would be those pills that were encouraging him to eat. It seems that this is what is happening as he only ate a very small amount this morning and nothing since.
The vet said he doesn't want him to have anything at all apart from the Zantac which we are injecting him with twice a day, not even the fortiflora as he doesn't want anything to mask how he is doing.
He is drinking on his own and we are also giving him additional water via syringe.
I have cooked him some fish which is cooling and hope that will tempt his appetite.
He is very thin and frail but looks much brighter today. He is sleeping at the moment and looks much more comfortable and relaxed.
Several of you have suggested Cyproheptadine as an appetite stimulant. I have some Periactin left from Eric and #1 from the Poupounette told me that is the other name for it. I won't give him any before I ring the vet on Monday morning, but I will ask if it is okay to give it then.
Thank you again for all your good thoughts and purrs for our boy. Ivor and I appreciate it very much.
