Hello All

Sorry for being absent for a while.

I've been asked how romi is doing so thought I'd give an update.

The week before easter Romi spent the night dribbeling, lots and lots of saliver coming from his mouth, leaving puddles where ever he would rest his head.
Took him to the vets, he was given pain killers and antibiotics.
The dribbling stopped, but he was still not his self.
They tested his bllod all fine but for the acid bile levels which were high.
He had a chicken brest only diet and was doing ok so we decided not to do any more invasive tests.
Retested his acid bile levels 2 weeks after the dribberling started, they were x2 as high as before.
He had an ultra sound done by Chris Lamb from the Royal Veterinary College, the liver looked normal and no shunt was found.
A week later he was really sick, like 8 times and then started vomiting blood. I paniced.
Trip to the vets, 2 injections, 1 for the sickness and 1 antibiotic
More blood tests.
More medicine for his tummy and 2 more anti biotics to take at home.
He is now eating (when he feels like it - always a fussy eater) Hills Prescription Diet i/d Canine Gastrointestinal Health
All the blood tests were clear (the vet contacted the vet collage and tested every thing they suggested)
He's been sick again quiet a few times and is on the antibiotics until friday when the vet will retest his acid bile levels.

Thats every thing so far.

Sarah & Little Romi

Romi has been sick again today - 9 times.
Went to vet and she checked him out.
He seams fine in himself, playing etc.
She's taken him off the antibiotics and is now going to do the acid bile test tomorrow rather than friday.
He's just eaten a little chicken

I only wrote down the post feeding results - wasn't quite with it!
the first time he was tested he was 46, second time 72, and today its 92.
So vet has referd him to the royal vet collage as she is out of ideas.

It's so awful to be so worried and not know what is going on. Hoping the Royal college can help you and get him back to himself. Prayers for your little man.

Worst thing is nort knowing.
I've got to work so can't take him myself - mum & dad are going to do it.
I'm already feeling bad about that!
