@Nettles Just wondering how Phoebe is doing?
Awk thank you for thinking of her @MontyMaude xo
Poor puppers still isn't well She'd sort of picked up for a day or two, then vomiting yesterday, peed herself again while she was just lying on the floor with a chew and today, more diarrhoea Got another vet appt for her tomorrow evening *sigh*
aw bless her, sorry she's still not right
Oh no, poor Pheebs, have the vets got her test results back yet? I hope she gets better soon the poor poppet.
Thank you. Poor girl never gets a break
Thank you. Yep, all her results came back last week. Everything completely clear. Trust Pheebs to be so complicated
Sorry to hear Pheebs still isn't right. These episodes don't coincide with her having the metacam for her hips do they?
Aww no poor Pheebs. Sending lots of love her way from me, Holly and Herbie.
I'm sorry to hear things still aren't right with Pheebs I guess it's just a process of elimination to find out what's going on with her, I hope you get to the bottom of it soon.
Hope she picks up soon. The leaking does seem odd, is she on propalin to try and control it.
Poor Pheebs hope they can find out what's causing it all
Thank you. No, she hasn't had any metacam since a week before the first peeing episode. I've been driving myself crazy analysing everything she's eaten or drank, places we've been, even toys she's played with and can't find anything that coincides with all 3 episodes.
Awww thank you so much, that pic has really made my day xo
Thank you. All this faffing about and eliminating things is really getting me down. I was expecting the emergency vet to say "it's XYZ, here's some medicine" and she'd be feeling better. It's worrying us sick not knowing what's causing it
Thank you. No she's not on any medication for it because they've no idea what's causing it. Our own vet said a sphincter issue would usually start off slowly with an occasional drip and gradually become worse over time, whereas Pheebs started with huge floods, then nothing for a few weeks, then huge floods again.
Thank you. Our appointment tomorrow is with the vet I really like. She knows Phoebes history and I trust her more than the others, so hopefully she can get to the bottom of it.
So sorry to hear of phoebes ongoing issues. Xx
I hope you get some answers today.
Thank you both. Fingers crossed
Fingers crossed for some answers today!
Hope everything went well at the vets. Any news?
Still no definite answers, but I'm feeling a bit more relaxed about it all this evening.
The results from her last urine sample came back today and still definitely no infection. We had to leave another sample in this morning to be dipped and it was also clear. Both samples were of normal concentration too. The vet gave her spine another really good check over and checked her reflexes. She turned her back paws outwards and Pheebs flicked them straight back over again which would indicate she has no nerve issues which I'm really relieved about. She also checked her tail and her bum and Phoebe reacted to both.
She said although the incontinence isn't happening the way it classically would with oestrogen spay incontinence, she wants to rule it out before doing any more tests. She's prescribed Urilin which we've to give her for a month. If she doesn't have another incontinence episode, great, we know what the cause is. If not, and it happens again, then we'll have to see where we go from there.
She thinks the upset tummy and lethargy is still due to colitis caused by the stress of everything she's had going on lately. We've got a stronger and longer course of metronidazole for the colitis and she's given us Pardale for her sore hips to use in the meantime instead of the Metacam which could upset her tummy further.
So again, we wait...
Hope the latest treatment regime does the trick and Pheebs feels better soon.
Thank you. I feel a lot better knowing we're at least trying something. Even if the Urilin doesn't solve the problem, it's at least another thing ruled out.
Fingers crossed for you all
