back to vet with Lancelot

Monday, July 22, 2013

I took him to the vet yesterday as he was supposed to get a shot for pain. but he was so dehydrated as he isn't drinking water now so they put him on IV for a while. I held him while he had his IV and they gave him vitamins also pain med. When they tried to drawl blood they couldn't get any as he was so dehydrated. He is so very weak. I think he is trying to go to kitty heaven. I just have never had an animal where they haven't been able to diagnose what is wrong with him. It is breaking my heart as when I hold him he is so weak but still tries to purr a bit.
so we will go to the vet today and see what he says. So sad.

I am thankful that during this difficult time that at least my health is good and I feel strong just so sad.

I hope all my sparks buddies have a great day.

    Stay strong and just think that he shouldn't
have to suffer for no reason. I am glad you are well
and able to at least give him lots of cuddles.
Sending prayers for you both. emoticon

    I'm so sorry for the feelings of helplessness and sadness you're experiencing. Lancelot is blessed that you are caring for him, and he's still showing he knows it with his attempts at purring for you.

    I'm sorry to hear about Lancelot !! It is so frustrating when the Vet can't find out what is wrong. It took 2 years before we got Ebony under control from his constant diarrhea under control. He is on chemo-type medicine (very expensive). Ebony I about 14.

I pray Lancelot improves soon. It is so difficult for us to see them sick.

    Sallie, I'm so sorry about your boy. Lancelot sounds like a gem. It's never easy, but you'll know what is right for him. He'll let you know, too.

Thank goodness you are feeling well so that you can be there for him. I hope your good health continues and I'll pray for dear Lancelot. emoticon

    It is so hard to watch our pets decline and not be able to do anything for them. I hope the vet can help Lancelot and you have much more quality time with him; he looks like a real sweetheart.

    Cats are so stoic, many times we don't know they're ill until it's too late. I hope the vet can do something to help him.
