Poor Coco Kitty!!

Came home today and someone had vomited up all their breakfast, so cleaned that up and poor Coco's trying to go poop and then a few minutes later threw up some clear fluid and DIDN'T want any Temptations!! Ok..vet time!! He's such a good boy, right in the carrier, he complained a bit on the way over. So his anal glands are giving him trouble again, the vet couldn't feel anything backed up and his bladder is normal sized. Poor kitty does not appreciate having his anal glands expressed! At least this time the vet took him into another room to do them and I still heard the howl So his heart is a little funky so he's going back on Tuesday for a geriatric blood and thyroid test. He's got some bland food for a few days for his system.

I like this vet, the other one I went to here, if you wanted an appointment the same day, they treated it like an emergency and charged an extra 75.00! This vet, she said can you be here by 2:30..yup and I only waited minutes once we got there. So right now he's sleeping in a sunbeam, hoping the food agrees with his tummy and he's feeling better.

He seems to be feeling better today. Someone threw up a bit last night. He wanted goodies this morning and was in bright and early to wake me up. He ate breakfast, the vet gave me some cans of the intestinal diet for a few days and now he's sleeping on my bed with Nino...no signs of throwing up. He looks happier today too.

Aww, poor boy. We had a couple of rounds of that with Sadie this past year. At one point we were doing sub-Q fluid injections to get her over it but thankfully it worked and we could stop that. Sounds like you won't have to go that far, good.

Sorry to hear about Coco but glad he is feeling better today. Maybe he`s developed an intolerance to the food you`ve been feeding him and needs to be on the sensitive all the time. good luck pattymac
