Hi every one
We are currently in the process of buying our first home/ moving and in these stressful times Gucci is now ill too which is scaring me to death!
Last night I cam home from work and found some spots of diarrhoea (very dark in color) on the floor. I wasn't sure which one of my 3 had the problem, they were all acting normal, running around etc.
When I cleaned the poop from the floor I realised it had blood in it (bright red on the tissue)
This morning I found out it was Gucci, he had diarrhoea again and he vomited (clear fluids)
He kept his tail low and has been cuddling with me and sleeping all morning.
His belly has been rumbling quite a lot too.
I was sooooo scared after googling what it could be, everything looked awful!
I took him to the vets, she was new ( our usual vet was off for new years)
She touched his stomach, checked his gums and took his temperature (the thermometer got bloody too
She just gave me Pro-Kolin for indigestion and a short course of Stomorgyl an antibiotic.
She wasn't quite clear what could have caused this and just mumbled something about a problem with his lower gastrointestinal tract. I guess she wasn't sure herself?!
She told me to go back after 5 days if the symptoms don't go away.
But I am still worried, I mean what could have been the cause?
What if there is something lodged inside him and he ate something he should have? Or cancer?
Doesn't the vet need to run some other tests?
I feel so helpless!
Is there anything I should look out for or any advice you have for me?
Please keep him in your prayers
