Miss Teia had rough days Monday and Tuesday, straining and straining to poop, but no output. She vomited from the effort Monday afternoon and lost her appetite. This has happened before, so we waited, but Wednesday morning nothing looked like it was improving, got her to the vet shortly after they opened for the day. They kept her for the day and treated her.
Miss Teia is a little bruised in the dignity department, but draped over my thigh as I type.
She was impacted, as it looks like her body is too efficient in removing moisture from her solid waste. Sub-Q fluids and a little other help got her unclogged. Will start up the Miralax again.
Overall Doc Ironmonger was pleased with her condition, weight is holding, hydration fine, BP is normal, temperament was serene, coat is healthy...
Doc called with blood work results this morning: overall, condition is stable from 6 months ago. Mild hyperthyroid (so we will restart the thyroid cream), 2 main liver numbers (1 a tick high, the other normal), 2 main kidney numbers (1 a tick high, the other normal) so no liver or kidney medicine right now and her blood counts looked good.
Doc agrees with giving Teia the help that she will accept.
Teia has had a good appetite today.
Only 32 days until her 21st birthday.
