I was a great patient today for the vet. Although my gums were pink, temp was normal, and there was no signs of dehydration, my red blood cell count was high. They gave me Sub Q fluids, an antacid, and an antibiotic (in case diarrhea occurs).
This is the second time this has happened. Last time I had to be hospitalized but this time it seems to have been caught early enough that they hope the fluids under the skin will work just as well. Fine by me, I'm happier at home.
I refused dinner though and feel bad because I know mom made is especially for me. It was ground turkey with brown rice. It smelled great but I am still not feeling well enough to eat. I did eat a very small piece of cheese with my medicine in it but that was all this evening. Mom said she will try to see if I want to eat again later this evening. For now, I'm just laying on the bed and resting. Hopefully by morning, I'll be better and on the road to recovery.
