Help King Recover!

Update posted by Jan Ferris On Mar 15, 2014

King is now taking only 5 mgs of prednisone and will stop it at the end of the month. He has pretty good days and some bad ones in between. Just need to wait and see how he does wothout the med.

Last night, poor King Tux was up all night. He kept jumping off the bed to gag/regurg a little. I got a Pepcid AC into him around 3:40 AM. Just when I think he is doing much better, this happens. I think I need a second opinion.

King is now struggling with the runs. Just when he seems to be doing better, something else happens. This is the third bout and I suspect there may be something else wrong with him.

King is over his bout of the trots. He still gags/regurgitates a little, mostly now after drinking water. Vet said keep him on 10 mgs of prednisone until the end of Feb., then reduce it to 5 mgs. I have my doubts about him being able to fully recover and be like he was before. Time will tell...

King is maintaining his condition. I still find it difficult to watch him gag/hack when he eats and drinks. At least he's not any worse. He's also just as ornery as ever. This morning he counter surfed and pulled an entire carton of eggs off of the counter! He ate a good sized breakfast, then walked over to me for some snuggles. I held his fuzzy snout in both hands and said, "Are you gonna burp a big one at me?" Guess what? As if on cue, he let out the loudest belch I've ever heard. Ohhhhh myyyyy, wish I had that on video...

King Tux continues to take meds. Today, he had a small episode of gulping and then hacking. He also did spit up a little bit. So, whatever he has, I don't know if it will ever go away for good. When he finally comes off of the meds, we may find out that he can't stay off of them.

King has been on the lower dose of Prednisone for only a short time, so it may be a while before we see any difference.

I weaned him back onto dry kibble and he still hacks and sometimes regurgitates. So, dry or pureed food didn't make a difference (neither did feeding him from elevated bowls). He still also gags/hacks when even drinking water.

Vet said he may never go back to being 100% the way he was before getting ill. I thought, but you still don't know what caused all of this...
