Gracie took ill over the weekend and had to see the vet on Sunday. She was really not herself, had a high temperature and on examination it was her abdominal area that was causing her pain. They tested for pancreatitis but it came back inconclusive, so she had an antibiotic and a painkiller injection - methadone - and was booked in for the next morning, potentially to have scans depending on how she had reacted to treatment. Anyway she was miles better the next day so we've held off on scanning for now and she's on oral antibiotics, Omeprazole and we've changed her pain relief regime - she has been on daily Metacam for a while now alongside Tramadol for her hip and elbow dysplasia and naturally the Metacam could be what's caused the problem so she's off that for now, probably indefinitely. Since pancreatitis hasn't been ruled out we've been advised to stick to a low fat diet, have stocked up on Chappie tins but am wondering about dry food - I don't mind giving Chappie dry if necessary but would be interested in alternatives; I gather for dry food under 8% fat is advised so most things under that would be ok, some of the Burns varieties for example? All in all we've been very worried, for a moment I thought she might be on her way out so I'm so happy she's currently on the mend even if we don't know exactly what's wrong. The vet does still want to scan her at some point to rule out anything like a tumour however because of her age and condition and her slow heart rate (this has been noted before, just something else to keep an eye on...) there is a risk having to sedate her for this so we're playing it by ear. Anyway thanks for reading, any advice would be appreciated.
