Lucy Update

Looking much better!
Hey, not so close, mom! You're making my nose look huge!
Little Lucy went to the vet yesterday. Thankfully, her kidneys seem to be about the same - so whatever is ailing her is more likely a virus than related to her renal disease.

The vet gave Lucy a shot of Cerenia for her nausea, and started her on famotidine, metronidazole, and IV fluids to get her back on her feet. She ate a little last night, which practically had me dancing around the house! This morning she's much more awake and aware - she was very dehydrated yesterday and the fluids really made a difference. I'll give her more fluids this morning and touch base with the vet later today.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers for my Lulu! We truly appreciate it and treasure having friends like you!

  1. That is great news. Whatever is doing the rounds is quite nasty. We had to finger feed Pippin with Aloe Vera juice to try and hydrate her with this ghastly bout and it worked. As it is a little sweet it also helped stimulate her appetite. More chicken n rice dinners here. Lets hope Lucy will be back to normal soon. Paws crossed.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Hope Lucy is feeling all better by now. Been down that road of not eating, not drinking and dehydration. It's no fun and very worrisome for the humans.
