First off, my brother and I want to thank everyone for the kind words and prayers for Fiona. I firmly believe in the power of prays, and it touches me deeply at how many on the CB care.
Now, for the report on Fiona's blood work. Our regular vet said that Fiona's liver enzyme was slightly elevated and her calcium level was slightly low. That's all she could tell me. Fiona is a difficult patient and she was unable to draw enough blood to run a full test. She suggested that I take Fiona to Jefferson Animal Hospital where they have better facilities to treat animals. It's a 24/7 facility used for emergencies and regular vet care. I was able to get a noon appointment.
Fiona had more blood drawn and tests run on it. Her white blood count is elevated and she does have a respiratory infection. She also had an x-ray taken. The x-ray did not show anything out of the ordinary.
She was given some sub-q fluids again, and she will require that for the next four or five days. I've already contacted my regular vet and they will do that in the office. I am not up to doing it myself. I know it is not difficult to do, but Fiona gets so upset I know I can't handle her. She was also given an injection to help with the nausea and an antibiotic injection.
Dr. Dickey has some concerns about Fiona's eye, and she wants me to continue the treatment of Terramycin ophthalmic ointment several times daily. Fiona is also to have 0.65cc Baytril oral solution daily for two weeks. Lastly, she is to get 1/2 tablet of Cyproheptadine HCL twice daily for the next 10 days.
If Fiona shows little or no improvement after three or four days, she is to go back for hospitalization and more tests. I'm praying that we won't have to go that route.
I will keep everyone posted on her progress. She is currently sleeping on her blanket on top of the floor vent.
Thank you all again for your thoughts and prayers concerning her well-being. *Hugs*
