Cailean's In Hospital
Prayers and positive thoughts please :( :(
My baby took ill this afternoon, after we had been to visit a friend and their doggies.
On the way back he became very breathless and wheezing/coughing. We got him out of the car and he just lay on the ground and couldn't get up. His tongue had gone grey.
We got the number of an emergency vets and took him straight there. The vet gave him oxygen and a respiratory injection. His heart rate is about 200 beats per minute :(.
We were about 50 miles from home, over an hour's drive. As he was so agitated, the vet thought it best to keep him in hospital under sedation.
We thought this was also the best option, as our own vets don't work weekends anyway, so if there'd be a problem on the way back or this evening, he'd have a long journey into Newcastle to the emergency vet. I didn't want to risk this, as Declan died on the way to the emergency vet.
He is very very ill. I can barely type because I can't see through the tears. I don't know how I'll cope if he doesn't make it and I'm not there, but I do think we're giving him the very best chance.
Need some hugs, guys.
aw im so sorry to hear ur little 1 is sick... hugs all round from leah bailey and holly :flwr: xxx
I'm so sorry to hear that Cailean is having these troubles and also that you are going through this. I know how heavy a burden this must be, with you having gone through an illness and death so recently. I truly hope they can stabilise him and get him on to a treatment regime that will give him much more time with you. How difficult for you that this is all happening away from home -- I think you have taken the right decision but it must add an extra level of strain for you. My thoughts and good wishes are with you and Cailean. :hug:
Tbh, I've lost any sense of logic.
My head knows he's in the right place. My heart is aching for him to be here with me.
Thinking of you. Hope he's well soon. :flwr:
Prayers and positive thoughts coming your way :(

Poor darling Cailean, he is in the best place Fran. It's you who I am worrying about too. You just don't need or deserve this now. Neither does Cailean & especially as he's just gotten a new friend too :(
Big hugs to you all xxxxx
Vet just phoned.
He's calmed down a lot and is resting. She took him outside for a wee and he got himself all over-excited again. He's now settled back down and vet says he's better than earlier. Now got to wait til they ring again tomorrow.
Thanks for everyone thinking of him.
Donna - I'm in bits. I'm useless without my baby. :(
Fran, good news that he is a bit better. Praying for his recovery and sending you big warm hugs!
We're thinking of you and Cailean, I'm glad to hear he's doing a bit better. :flwr: Try to stay positive and strong for him. :hug:
