Help with Coco’s Medical Bills

Update posted by Zandre Germishuys On Oct 23, 2019

Coco has been doing quite well since his vet visit on Friday. It does though seem that he stops pooping at around 10:00/11:00 in the morning till about 16:00/17:00 in the afternoon. He does get his pain medication with his gut motility medication at around 13:00/14:00 in the afternoon which also help to get the poops going again. He is extremely happy that he can eat veggies again. I will update again when I have new news.

So yesterday (Thursday) Coco was not doing too well. He stopped pooping and eating for about 7 hours. I gave him his pain medication and he eventually started to poop again and even started eating again. Today he had his follow-up visit at the vet. The doctor took more X-rays and it looks like his bloat has stabilised at the moment. He is still on his medication to help his gut move as well as his pain medication for when he stops pooping. He can also slowly start to eat his veggies again. Coco is very happy about this as he missed his veggies the last week. He has another follow-up vet appointment in 2 weeks time to further monitor his progress.

Coco went to the vet this morning for his follow-up consultation. They took some more X-rays and saw he is still a bit bloated. The vet said he may not have any veggies till Friday as he has another follow-up appointment on Friday. Last night he started eating again and making poops. He has been relatively good today except for about 6 hours of no poops. I will add another update when there is new info.

Coco was doing really well on Friday. He was eating and pooping like crazy. Yesterday morning he made a few poops and then stopped pooping, eating and drinking water. I spoke to the vet and she said I should just continue with his meds as he is currently on two different pain medications as well. Late yesterday afternoon he started eating a bit and made a few poops but stopped again last night. He has been eating his hay on and off this morning and drinking some water but he does not want his critical care. He also hasn’t made any poops since last night. At least he has his follow-up vet appointment early tomorrow morning.

So yesterday evening we had to take Coco back to the vet because he wasn't eating, drink water or pooping. They took some X-rays and saw that he was bloated again. They kept him under observation for the night. He will be coming home late this afternoon with his usual medication and some new medication. The vet has also advised that he not get any veggies until Monday (when his next follow-up appointment is) to see whether the veggies might be contributing to the bloat. Coco is not going to be happy going without his veggies for the entire weekend.
