He didn't seem to bright yesterday but I put it down to the weather. It still might be the hot weather :?

Today he has only had nibble of carrot and passed a couple of small poos. He is drinking loads yet his eyes are sunken and dull. His breathing is really rapid and all he wants to do is sleep :(

I managed to ring the vets before they closed and he has an appointment first thing.

Revel will be 10 in October, I have had him longer than any animal here, and much longer than I have known Steve. I am really hoping it is just the heat but I guess he can't live forever :cry:

Oh Liz, I'll be sending lots of positive vibes for you both and hoping he is just wilting like the rest of us and will perk up when the weather eases.

Good luck tomorrow.

Thank you.

Steve just went in to see him and came back out saying where have his eyes gone :shock::(

I don't understand how he could suddenly get so dehydrated, if thats what it is. He is drinking OK and there have been no symptoms at all of kidney problems :?

Bless him :cry:

I hope he has a comfortable night xx

He seems comfortable in himself despite the lack of interest in food, just sleepy rather than ill :?

He ate a few pellets and has had a little potter about :)

But his eyes still look the same and he is still breathing like he is really hot :?

Poor Revel, he's one of my faves too. I hope it's just the heat getting to him a little and that he's feeling better soon. :love:

He's been admitted :( He is very dehydrated but they have no idea why. His breathing and heart rate are rapid but otherwise normal. Temperature normal.

the vet was actually impressed with his overall condition given his age :)


He will be pumped full of fluids today and then take it from there

Sounds like heat or GI stasis with that level of dehydration. Poor boy, hope he feels much better after his little spell in intensive care :(
Am sure he'll feel much better and can come home again soon x

His guts sound fine, he is eating small amounts and there was a few piles of poos this morning just very small ones.:) Its more like he is too tired to eat.

Hopefully it is just the heat and old age not making a good combination. Problem is I think the weather is getting hotter before it gets cooler :? :(

I hope he'll feel much better once he's been rehydrated.

I'm afraid so. Mr PL looked at the Met Office long range forecast for next week and it looks like we might be in for a heat wave after Sunday which is worrying for all you caring for elderly and poorly buns :cry: Hope you can all keep cool.
I'm finding lunchtime/afternoon wet leaves and grass picked, soaked in water and fed soaking wet is helping keep my two hydrated in the afternoon when sleepy time makes everything slow down.

Got the fan on today and all windows closed and what are my two doing? Racing around the house binkying everywhere! :roll:

Hope Revel feels better soon xx

Awww bless him, the heat is awful for everybody - even worse when you have old age to cope with too. I hope the fluids help him feel better. :love:

Revel is feeling much brighter :) Looks like the fluids have done the trick.

We aren't doing further tests just now as we are hoping it is a one off, but if the severe dehydration hits again we will be asking for bloods etc
