    Default Please help! Ella still not well.

    On the way to vet. Ella still vomitting and was hiding in closet. Could not find her. She is crying and I had a very hard time even giving medicine this morning. Talked to vet and he said to bring her in (would have anyway). Said he will tell partner to maybe take xrays and bloodwork. She has been vomitting since Monday morning. Any suggestions on what this could be besides stomach bug?

    Should I ask for them to look at anything specific in bloodwork. I hate to see her crying. I'm really scared.

    Default Hey sweetie!!! I am here

    I am wondering about poisonous stuff in her or pancreatitis. I wish I was near you to be there with you. I know you are terrified for Ella right now. Main thing is to try to be calm for her and get fluids in her. Call me if you need me.

    Poor Ella, I'm sure the vet will do whatever tests are needed to find out what's wrong and get her back on the road to recovery quickly. Will be thinking of you both this evening.

    Did the Vet rule out pancreatitis?

    Vet said bloodwork did not show something that would suggest that but said they could still have it w/o this coming up in bloodwork. Since she is not drinking and still not well, vet said to go to hospital. They are keeping her on fluids and said it could be 3 days. May do ultrasound tomorrow which would give a better picture. Seeing if reacts to whatever they give her first. I hope its nothing and I can't believe I'm saying this but this has cost me over $1000.

    She has to be on fluids but lord knows why its that much w/o ultrasound.

    Things really hit when a woman came in panicked b/c her dog (britney spaniel) was not breathing and when the dog came in with help holding her, it was the hardest thing to see. I heard something like a heartattack but this seems like nothing when a dog comes in looking like nothing I've seen before.

    Oh wow. I have no advice, but just wanted to say that I was thinking of you and sending all my healing thoughts your way. Good luck and give Ella a big pet from Brooklyn. We hope she gets better fast!!!

    Default Ella update. I think SM has to make things complicated

    Ella is in the ICU still. One thing that concerns me and I talked (emailed) neurologist yesterday but he is out of town on a triathalon, is her not being on her medication for SM. She spit up again last night at the ICU, but I would think being at the same hospital as neurologist, they would know a little more about her medication etc. I asked because I was concerned especially about her not taking prednisone. They have been able to give her pain medication but they are saying she has not perked up and that concerns them for this long being like this.

    I talked to the ICU doctor this morning because she mentioned maybe doing an ultrasound but was not pushing it. I know this sounds terrible but I have spent over $1000 on this and an ultrasound would be almost $500. I asked if she thought it was neccesary I would of course add to the care credit card I got last night, but I really think it is something combined with SM. They said she is still real lethargic and has not perked up. I told them that I thought she is in pain anyway (it is managed on medication) so being off of lyrica, prednisone (got a little tramadol), and prilosec has to contribute to her behavior. She told me they would give her prednisone and I am going to go tonight to see if I can feed her.

    They can't compare her behavior with others because being of treatment for SM is going to make her seem uncomfortable. She isnt scratching, shaking her head, yelping, etc. but she is definately showing pain.

    Gastrointitis (spelling) is what they believe but since this has been going on since monday at 4am it should be somewhat managed. I think the ringworm combined with not taking SM medication compound the issue. When I gave her the medication she vomited so I wonder if there are withdrawals also. I know on some medication for humans there are.
