gunther got sick again yesterday. worse than he ever has. it was sudden. my little man went from ravenous eater to glassy-eyed and wobbly. small seizures. he's losing control of his hind legs.
once again, we took him to the emergency vet. (why must this always happen on weekends?) he stayed the night under observation and was rehydrated. blood tests came back with shrugged shoulders. the vets really don't know what's wrong with him. only that he eats a can of food a day, and is still 3 lbs, and anemic.
his organs are obviously not functioning properly, but the tests don't show it.
dr internist took a look at him this morning, and decided to let him go home with us, since his vitals were stable.
in the few hours since he has been home, gunnie has deteriorated further. we think we have come to the sickening, heartwrenching decision: if he does not pass in the next 24 hours, we will take him back to the vet to be euthanized. we just don't think he can bounce back this time.
may saint francis come near. i am going to snuggle him now.Posted by bananie at July 15, 2007 3:34 PM |
