Poor Shadow started having diarrhea last Sat. afternoon. So, I took her food away, made sure she had water, waited overnight and started her on boiled chicken and white rice on Sun. morning. She seemed to be doing better by noon. However, by Sun. night she refused to eat anything and was drinking very little. She was also having dry heaves by this time. We went to the vet Mon. morning, he said she had good color and wasn't dehydrated at all. His recommendation was to give her Gerber's meat baby food and a prescription for Metronidazole. He thought she probably just had a tummy ache and that it would be fine in a day.
Well, I think it's more than a "tummy ache". As of last night she is refusing to eat almost anything I try to give her, and the list is long: baby food, chicken breast, chicken broth, yogurt, rice, chicken jerky (her favorite treat), jack cheese, and cottage cheese. She did eat a small piece of cheddar cheese this morning and took small amounts of Nutri-Cal last night and this morning. She is hardly drinking, either.
The vet comes in at 9:00 AM and the tech said she would talk to him to see if he could see Shadow between the surgeries he's doing today. So, I'm waiting to hear what time I can take her in....
In the meantime, anybody have any ideas what could be wrong and what I should tell the vet? Thanks.
