Just spoke to C, he came through the GA fine and has pooed etc already.

His teeth were really bad so definately needed doing, she is certain the weight loss is because of this.

The skull x ray showed nothing, no tooth root abcesses or anything.

The chest x ray has showed abnormalities on his lungs this time :cry: C is not 100% sure what it is or what to do, she is going to get another vet to look over the xrays this afternoon and suggested we might try some bisloven or we may try something else she will let me know when i pick him up later.

joey&bugys 2007
09-12-2009, 04:06 PM
I'm glad he has come through the GA OK :)

I hope that C can find something to help him now.

I am relieved to hear that he got through the GA.
Although the Xray is not good news at least you have some idea as to what is going on for him.
I hope that C will come up with some treatment to help Lionel breathe with less effort

Thanks everyone x

He is home now and you would not believe he had just had a GA, dental etc! He has been running around like a loon :shock: He has eaten hay, treats, veg dinner, pellets and more hay and done loads of poos! Can't believe it he has never come round this well before :D

I didn't get to speak to C as she was so busy surgery was over running, she said she will speak to Gill (other vet) and call me for the mo i am to carry on with the depocilin as agreed.

I'm so sorry Lionel isn't doing so well :(

Timmy showed abnormalities on his lungs too but we have no idea what they are. The only sugestion our vet could come up with was blood clots from all his accidents but I don't think that could be a possibility with Lionel :?

I think it was someone new on reception she didn't know who i was or anything, everyone else knows me, I am going to call again at lunchtime and try to catch Donna as i know she will be in then.

Trouble is i don't think the other vet (L) will want to do anything as last time she wanted to speak to C first before anything was done for him. I am so upset right now :cry: :cry: :cry:

theres a chance they may phone her hun, vets dont just turn off because they are on hols.. my vet was phoned on her hols when she was back in her home town just to get the mix for Pearl's heart drugs :oops:... animals are more important to vets than we realise i think.

get him an appointment hun for today, try not to panic too much, she doesnt sound like the type of vet who will leave him suffering if they have a way to help him xxxxx

Hi Katie - spotted this while I was on coffee making duties.
Sorry you are having a worrying time. As far as I knew Christabel was going to ring you when she heard back from Gill. I have checked Lionel's records and the work email and we haven't had anything back as yet - so sadly nothing to say.
Wendy is in today if you need to talk to another very experienced vet and I know Christabel wouldn't mind you phoning her on her mobile if you are really worried - but as I say, there isn't anything to say as yet.
Stay strong Katie, Lionel is a very special little fella and needs you x

angeleyes
14-12-2009, 08:39 PM
Thanks Donna x

C actually called me today and advised that she is waiting for Gill to take a look at the x-rays still, she tried calling her but she is out today.

She has said to wait until tomorrow and see if we hear from Gill, if not i will pick up a shot of steroid when i go in with Tiff tomorrow as the steroid may have helped him when he had it last weekend (or it may have been the milder weather :roll: )

He actually sounds mucussy and rattly today, i did mention bisolven and really hope i can try that, but i don't know what the x-rays showed so i really probably don't know what i am talking about :?

I can see that sparkle in his eye fading by the day.....

angeleyes
14-12-2009, 09:52 PM
Just had a call from C, She has spoken to Gill this evening and has confirmed diagnosis; he has pneumonia :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

I asked her if he will overcome this and she said he will eventually get worse, we can try to manage it with antibiotics and steroids.

I am now to do 2 weeks of depocilin every day, then every other day indefinately, i am also going to pick up a short lasting steroid tomorrow to give him.

She did say having watched him at the surgery and how quickly he bounced back from the GA last week that we are thinking its more serious than it actually is at the moment. Although he looks uncomfortable to me sitting with his head back, he probably just finds it easiest to breath like that. As long as he is still eating and maintaining his weight we will fight this.

I fell some relief that we know what it is but also am very upset for my poor boy he has been throguh so much in his short life, its so unfair :cry:

Katie do you remember my Sarah ?
She had a similar problem to Lionel and although we could not 'cure' her we were able to buy her almost a full year of good quality life. So although the news for Lionel is not the best, at least he is unaware of the situation and he is obviously still very happy within himself.
He is a real star :love:
