Corbin's momma here again... Corbin refuses to drink, so we've been back to the vet yesterday afternoon and this morning to get some fluids, he won't even let them take him in the back to do it, so he sits in my lap and the tech comes into the exam room for him. He's still in a lot of pain, so we have some pain killers to try. He's eating very well, and I've been adding tons of water to his food, but it just doesn't seem to be enough. His gums are very pale.
He's a sure hit at the vets, everyone loves him and he's actually being a really good patient - as long as I'm with him. He won't let me out of his site, even at home.
Very strange... the typical symptoms for this are vomiting, diarrhea and fever. He doesn't have any of those symptoms. Hopefully today is the day he turns around and starts feeling better. I'd be much more relieved if he'd drink on his own. I'm going to pick up some meat baby food and try to add that to the water to see if it will interest him. I keep telling his dad we need to move closer to the vet... it's a 40 minute drive, but well worth it for great vets.
We're so very thankful for everyones love and support. Sorry we haven't gotten around to visit... hopefully tomorrow will bring some good news!
Corbin's momma, Jenn
PS. I'd also like to thank Emily from Our Waldo Bungie for Corbin's sweater. Corbin has been wearing it to help him keep warm in the house and on his trips to the vet... when he's so dehydrated, he shivers and shakes, and the sweater helps to calm and warm him. Everyone at our vet office loved it too, we're very thankful for it!
