A Sunday evening trip to the emergency vet. Windy’s HGE returned, but we caught it early. Black poop, loud tummy sounds and frightening gas were the warning signs.
The ER vet was impressed to see HGE in such an early stage. We wanted to avoid Windy having any major discomfort and an overnight vet hospital stay. We elected to have some subcutaneous fluids and medication. And more special vet food.
Here is her regime: ¼ tablet famotidine daily, ½ tab amoxicillin every 12 hours, ¼ tab metronidazole every 12 hours, 15 cc Pro Pectalin Gel (for the good bacteria) every 8 hours (She licks this off my finger.), ¼ tab sucralfate dissolved in water every 8 hours (Squirt it in her mouth, and do it one hour before meals).
I think I will keep her on the canned Iams intestinal low residue. She seems to like it. If she can eat it all in her crate while Jake and Hope feast on their Nutro Lamb and Rice I will be happy.
Now what time is it and what med do I need to get…
