Had to bring my baby Sasha to the animal ER clinic today. We had seen her vet on Fri cuz she was very lethargic and not her usual happy go luck self, her blood test showed some elevation in various areas and we were suppose to go back tomorrow for a review and tx plan, but she got worse yesterday and when I brought her into the ER her fever registered at 106.1! After hydration and Xrays (which showed nothing) we took her home, gave her ice rubs to break the fever, but after looking initially a bit better we ended up bringing her back to the ER where she is now spending the night hooked up to IV, they gave her antibiotics, took a blood sugar test (normal). I called a little while ago and her fever was down to 104, she had puked a bit, but was now resting. I am so scared of losing her...she is a Pom/Chi, 10 1/2 yrs old and she's my baby ever since she was 8 weeks old! Last year she was diagnosed with (borderline) Cushings Disease, but due to the fact that she really did not show any signs or symptoms she was not put on any meds for it. It is very hard to distinguish where the Cushings starts and other illnesses start, where do they overlap? Is her disease progressing? Is it something else...I don't know but I'm scared!
Sorry for my rambling but....
One doesn't have to be GREAT to start, but one has to START to be great!
