Corbin's momma here again. I really hate to keep updating with crappy news and I don't want to not update and keep everyone in the dark... but Corbin is no better. He's still not drinking well - we've tried chicken broth, beef broth and chicken and beef baby food mixed in. The broth worked well Sunday, but then he was sick of that. And the baby food worked great last night, so I was pretty excited, but he turned his nose up at it this morning, no matter how I doctored it up. He has been eating fine and I fill his food bowl with water, which he'll drink to get to the food, but it just doesn't seem to be enough water. We'll probably have to go in again tonight for more fluids if he doesn't start drinking. I've thought about doing the fluids at home, but I keep hoping that every trip will be our last... plus, I'm not sure how well he'd sit still for it at home. And, we still have Lexie, who has been an angel with all the attention Corbin has been getting.
He was in pain all night... moaning, groaning and yelping when he'd move. I called my vet this morning at his home, not the vet we have been seeing, but our friend that owns the vet hospital. I told him I was very concerned that this was possibly something else and that Corbin's pain seems to be getting worse. He went into the vets office and took a look at Corbin's file. He thinks it might be in his back - although the pancreatitis did come back positive, he's not vomiting or showing any other signs. He upped his pain meds and Adam is on his way to get an anti inflammatory to start him on. We have an appointment with Dr. Mike tomorrow at 7. He wanted him on the anti inflammatory and pain meds before we went in for an appointment.
I've been up all night with him since Saturday... I'm worried sick about my poor boy. It's so hard to see him in pain like this. Hopefully, we can get him comfortable and figure out what is going on.
There is still the possibility that it's the pancreatitis... but since his pain is when he stretches his abdomen... that's typically something they do to relieve the pressure on the pancreas, so it shouldn't be causing pain :-(
I'll be back with another update tomorrow... hard to find the words for Corbin when he's hurting...
