Lolove....VERY SICK

Hello Everyone...


Sorry for not blogging for some time, but Lautrec is very ill and I fear greatly for his life. He not only has yellow skin, but has a half-functioning liver and pancreas problems. He has not eaten for several days nor had any water. We spent the good part of the day at the vet yesterday undergoing several different tests, x-rays and ultrasounds. The FIV test was inconclusive as it came out neither positive nor negative. He also has inflammation around his lungs. He needs to do a poop, but won't consider visiting the litter box.


I 'injected' water in his mouth last night, but this morning he vomited back up. The vet gave him antibiotics and something to help the swelling go down. 


Lautrec is laying in his basket next to me and is purring...bless him. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!!! Please, please, please, please, please, please say a prayer for him that he gets better.  The vet (who speaks Czech and I only sort of speak it) says we can only wait and see what happens (but, of course, will do all he can in the interim)...though he did say prayers are also good. So, I am asking you to please say one (or more, if you can spare them) for my dear, sweet boy.


Thank you. Cat

We're sending purrs and purrayers to Lautrec, for his Highest Good. Have you Googled for any info on jaundice/liver problems as well as pancreatitis? Maybe there's something that the vet doesn't know that could help.

Paws crossed for Lolo and hugs to you.

So worrying for you!

Oh NO! We cannot bear the thought of our dearest Lolo being so ill.

Do you have a veterinary school hospital anywhere close? Sometimes they are the best places when an animal is very sick. It sounds to us (sorry to be meddling) as though your vet is perhaps not doing all he could be doing. Shouldn't Lolo be on a drip to try and keep him hydrated?

Anyway, we're not much for prayers but we are purring up a storm and sending lots of good vibes.

Lucy the Cat said...

I am so sad and terribly sorry hear this. I have to agree with Kim at fuzzy Tales to maybe do some of your own research. (It just seems concerning that the vet wants to wait and see when Lolo is so very sick.) One thing is if he's not drinking, I would think maybe the vet would give him fluids via IV or subcutaneously but of course I don't know about liver problems. I will definitely be praying for him.

ABBY said...

I am purring big time for sweet Lautrec and we are all sending healing energy. But our human agrees with the kitties and humans who have suggested doing some research and seeking out another vet. Do you have access to an acupuncturist/ TCM practitioner who treats animals? Our acupuncturist works with our vet to help us treat our kitties. Bets wishes for Lautrec's healing.

CCL Wendy said...

Hang in there, Lolo! We all love you and we're purring very hard that you will recover.

Perhaps you need to go to another vet who would be more helpful. There are always things that can be done.

I will pray for your sweet kitty and Scout will send his purrs.

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

Oh noes...we just read on the CB that Lolo is so sick! We are very worried, as the Pouponettes are, that a kitty that is yellow, with liver and pancreas function problems, needs to be on IV fluids at the minimum. The amount of water you can orally feed a kitty as sick as Lolo to make a difference would be about 60cc 4 x a day (that's about 2 ounces) and most cats just won't tolerate that force feeding, or like Lolo...vomit it all back up.

The liver and pancreas can flare up when a cat doesn't eat at all for as little as 48 hours or if they are eating 50% less than normal for many days.

Here are some links that will help you learn more and ask your vet to jump in and be more proactive and be able to pull Lolo through this...as Teri says "An educated pet owner is the best client a vet can have!"
