We just got home from another exciting vet day. Samantha was very jaundiced this morning, her eyes and ears were yellow so they immediately did another blood panel. Her White Cell count was much better than last week BUT her Liver levels were THROUGH THE ROOF. There wasn't any room on the chart to go any higher. Sooo...X-rays ensued to check for anything odd but nothing showed up. She's now on six weeks of Prednisolone, Pancrezyme Tablets and an antibiotic still. Since she refused to eat the Low-Residue food she now has a different Low Fat/Residue/Miracle food. I assume it's a miracle food since it was $40 for 16 pounds. ;)
SO - the plan is that if she continues vomitting she will be admitted to the hospital for IV fluids, etc. Her food/water intake will have to be monitored closely over the next week as well. (poor Colton) I hate leaving town but I'm hoping between Colton and all of the family she'll have enough support in case something happens. (please no) Ugh. If she gets sick I'll just come home early.
She's in good spirits but refused to eat again tonight, otherwise very social. I hope this passes soon. Thanks for all the good advice - I had no idea there were so many Pancreas-Dogs out there! -Maryann
