So very sorry to read about Daisy, as if she did`nt have enough problems, thinking of you and Daisy and sending you both hugs.

She had a very restless night.My husband went to collect her new meds and noone seemed to know about my conversation with the vet.
So a different vet reviewd her notes and suggested we do a cPLI test for pancreatitis.So that's been done and results should be back after the holidays.
The food she got was Royal canin gastro intestinal low fat diet as opposed to the royal canin liver support diet.
So I have no idea what's right or wrong...one vet says stop the new NSAID,another says it's ok.
Anyway,she ate the food and kept it down..so that's a positive.

Sins I am so sorry to read the updates, I was hoping that things were on the up. Poor little lass, her problems are not helped by a lack of continuity at the vets. I hope things continue in a positive way until after the holidays when you can get some results. Reading back through the thread there are a couple of pointers that you noticed yourself, (the tenderness in the abdomen area). I couldn't find the name of the new NSAID, just out of curiousity I was wondering what it was and when she started it?
Gentle hugs for Daisy, bless her...

So sorry to read about Daisy and it must be very worrisome particularly at this time of year. Hopefully the food will make a difference to her and combined with her meds that she will be picking up soon. Trapper had v mild pancreatitis a couple of weeks ago - nothing as bad symptomwise as Daisy- but he recovered very quickly on a combination of special gastro food and antibiotics. We will be keeping our fingers crossed

I'm sorry to hear that Daisy is so poorly. It's good that she is keeping her food down and hopefully the test results will help give a clearer picture of what meds she needs and she can start on the road to recovery. Sending gentle hugs and positive thoughts to you.

I'm so sorry to ready about Daisy! I hope you get things sorted. I just kinda skimmed through the thread because I have to leave soon but it did bring something to mind.
My Holly had an episode where she had extreme vomiting. She spent a week at the vet on IV fluids. Aside from being severely dehydrated my vet couldn't find anything wrong. She was extremely tender in the abdomen. She had no interests in foods. After a week my vet assumed pancreatitis and sent her home. Even though the tests said no. Well after only being home for 1 1/2 days she was keeping food down again and things seemed to be looking up. Then out of no where she vomited, staggered, stumbled, wobbled around and dropped to the ground. She had rapid & strange eye movement. One eye stayed in place and the other eye sort of bulged out and off to the side. She was limp and unresponsive. Her gums went white. By the time we got the the ER vet (about 30 minutes later) she was fine. (She slowly recovered over the 30 minutes. It was not an instant improvement). Her stomach continued to be very sensitive. You could actually see her having stomach cramps (stretching out) and she would yelp if you pushed on it. All of her tests came back normal. We went to a specialist the next day where they did an ultrasound of her heart & belly. They also did some other heart tests. Turned out she had a 2nd degree heart block. (Her heart was beating too slow and very irregular. She also had a 1-2 murmur and high blood pressure) All of this was basically causing fainting spells. Her excessive vomiting was caused by being nauseous and dizzy. So after starting medication everything went away and she is fine now. I know it's not exactly the same but maybe something to consider? I don't know if this would cause liver issues but could be a combined problem?
