A bit better today, but not by much. Still not eating and he's a bit dehydrated. The only food he has any interest in eating is his treats, his supplements, and my cereal so that's what we've been doing, but even eating a little piece at a time is causing him to teeth grind and then he stops. Giving him his meds is still a chore, but he took his pred better today. He's still super lethargic, but maybe a smidge more alert althouh his coordination is off and he holds himself oddly. He did have a cow patty poop last night instead of liquid poop, but that has been the only bowel movement he's made since yesterday.

So its still a wait and see. I'm hoping by the end of the weekend I'll have seen an improvement or I don't know what my next step will be.

Not doing so hot tonight. Much more dehydrated, much more painful, and I don't think he's urinated or defecated all day. He's lost more weight as he's still not eating. Forced some meds and water down his throat and got him to eat a bit, but he was super painful the entire time.

Asked the vets when I should start seeing an improvement if there is going to be one and she said that, at least with cats and dogs, there should be one in 48 hours with the meds he's on. I'm not seeing it.

So I'm going to see how he is tomorrow and go from there, and will probably try to push through the weekend just encase. Maybe do some sub-q fluids. But right now its not looking too good.

Keep us in your thoughts, please.

I will be having Dameon put down tomorrow. He's continued to decline, even with the medication and it is time. He is in so much pain and has lost his spark.

Still can't quite believe this is happening.

I'm so sorry to hear, and the fact that you love him enough to make that choice for him, speaks volumes. From the sounds of it, he had an awesome life and that's more than a lot of pets could even dream of.. knowing what it's like to be loved so much.
