Sym: A Turn For The Worse

I've just got back from the vet's.

Sym has spent a pretty uncomfortable 24 hours vomiting and feeling generally sorry for himself.

His last treatment seemed to go quite well but he has slowly deteriorated over the course of the week.  He hasn't had a meal since Tuesday (with the exception of grass) and continues to vomit even though he has taken Cerenia anti-sickness medication.  His weight has dropped to 21.8 kilo's and the vet seems to be quite concerned.

He is still with the vet and is facing a barrage of blood tests and will have all his major organs checked.  With luck, and after a Cerenia injection, he'll be back with us this afternoon, otherwise he'll be monitored overnight.

We have crossed everything that can be crossed and are hoping that he has a speedy recovery.


  1. Oh, I am so sorry. I know how brutal this time can be. Big hugs to you and Sym.

  2. Sorry to hear this news, hope Sym's better soon, and the vet has good news for you. Deirdre

  3. Sorry to hear this George and Julie - hoping that the tests show nothing more serious

  4. Everything is crossed here too !

  5. Hopefully his stay at the Vet's will put him on road to recovery - you must be missing having him around. x
