Who would have thought that your fur babies hold as much of our hearts as our own children do? Gizmo was so ill and kept collapsing that he was not able to stand on his own two hind legs. Not to mention, he was crying that he was in pain. We took him to the vet that decided that they needed to keep him for two days and an overnight stay. He received an IV that they could administer pain killers and saline that he was dehydrated.
That the vet closes at 7 pm, we had to take him to an animal clinic, which hours are 6 pm - 8 am, for the night. They ensured us to keep him safe and that they would slowly try to hand feed him. We had to pick him up before 8 am and bring him back to his regular vet, which put him back on his IV, meds, and did a sonogram.
We were called in, at about 6 pm that evening in regard to his exam and findings. Gizmo looked much better. Gizmo had severe pancreatitis, half-blind and they found a mass on his liver and the surrounding area. We were advised to keep him as comfortable as we could and just let him live, unless of course, it gets worse, etc. However, he has been home now for almost 3 weeks and he is slowly doing better. He does run in circles all day long and I might have to put my watch on him to get all those steps in. He can hear pretty well that he follows our voices or even a treat bag being opened.
Even Gizmo's sista Ms. Lilly is happy to have him back home. She has been loving on him and even trying to lay as close as she can. I do love the bond that they two have.
