Hello Forum Friends--some of you may remember me. I was once very active, but haven't posted in years. Busy life with family and 2 happy Havs--Biscuit, 8, & Heath, 6. And 2 grandchildren.
Our darling Heath , a vivacious, athletic, affectionate, energetic dog, has been very sick for 2 wks with a mystery ailment.
This began with mild occasional vomiting for a week, but otherwise normal behavior.
But progressed the 2nd wk rapidly to weakness, not keeping anything down, weight loss,
and overnite Heath's becoming a shadow of himself.
. Shocking and heart- breaking.
Saw an excellent vet who gave every possible test. All normal ! I was surprised because Heath has had 3 past bouts of pancreatitis.
Heath went in for several infusions of fluids, and was put on antibiotics, anti-
nausea drug, appetite stimulant, etc. He has kept food and water down for a
for almost a week, yet isn't really improving. In fact, our gut is he's
dying. We are seeing a second excellent vet tomorrow for another opinion, at the first vet's insistence. She is baffled and upset.
If you have any idea what this might be, we'd so appreciate your input.
We are demoralized and depressed. Thanks---amy
