Wednesday 7th Feb. Morning everyone & thank you all for staying with us through this episode. Yes. The title is correct. Tyler can come home. I could collect him this morning but was offered to have a vet appt/consultation so took that . I will bring Ty home late this afternoon. The vet rotation is back to the original vet from Friday. As you all know the original issues for last Friday's vet appt was ongoing soft stools and diarrhea + the worsening mobility, the dragging really of his right leg which let him down. By that I mean that he was still up for walking but his gait was incredibly unstable. Instead on that Fri morning he actually refused to eat ( a first) and his BG was 3.1. I took him early . A test was positive for pancreatitis which may have been slowly building for some time. If you look at his SS his BG levels had been dropping for some days which is not uncommon in some cats if an issue is rumbling away. Had his BG suddenly rocketed that would have given much more of an alert. Ty has been very dosy the past two days which concerned us. This morning I learnt , via the telephone call, he has been on an opiod mediation for pain. They reduced the dose. He brightened up. He will come home with that I think. His BG for them, the vets, this morning had risen again to over 17.0/306. I was expecting a higher number TBH as I didn't believe a spontaneous remission could have occured. They wish to start him back onto 1 unit Lanctus twice daily. Because of the BG levels they have experienced , the vets do not think there is a real liver issue which is good news, so there will not be a bile-acid test. For some reason today's vet seemed to think that Tyler had just stopped walking over the end of last week. This is not the case at all however his mobility and ability to control his limbs had continued to worsen. He was still moving himself around up until I took him to the vet. I am not sure why they don't understand this. As of this morning and until we see the vet , their considered opinion again is that this is arthritis despite that no pain meds to date have improved the gait or mobility. The only thing I saw that helped a bit was the B12 tablets helped him away from the absolute planter gait. They wish to start him back on the metacam. Hence my thread into the main feline health forum re studies on this med. There was a mention of B12 injections. I think he has had this but I am not sure, nor if this is the case if that will continue or if this will mean vet visits . I do realise people on here adminster themselves but this is NZ & I didn't hear the suggestion that I continue and do this at home for Ty. So where do Ty and I currently stand or perhaps that should be sit? Right back where we were before the pancreatitis manifest itself ingloriously and Ty decided not to eat at all that Friday morning. He is eating ,weeing, pooping - soft or otherwise - and doing his wobbly walks and then flopping down against anything to prop him. That is where we were before all of this . This is far better though than what we thought we might be facing .
