Hi evfurry it’s me Forrest…
I would like to thank evfurry for the POTP and concern and love after my incident with the snake this weekend..
Mum and Dad would also like to say how much it meant to them too..it really made a difference..
On Sunday I was in the kitchen an I made a funny noise..mum thought I was going to throw up..she said.”You ok Boo? you going to be sick?”
And nothing..i was ok but she saw my back legs trembling..she watched me a while an noticed I was walking funny..and not really acting ‘with it’…her and Dad thought I had had a mini stroke and rang the vet ..it was a long weekend here..which is when all animalz get sick or hurt BOL…
After a talk on the phone with Dr Mark who was on call it was decided we had to come down and get it checked.
Dr Mark did all the checks…my eyes were not reacting to light..i was drooling..i was trembling more and my gag reflex was not good..i got my furs stolen from my neck…and I had my blood stolen..the test did not come backs positive but with snake bites this years fur some reason they aren’t all coming back positive..so we decided that time was the critical factor..and I got ready for the antivenene..see my reactions were from neurotoxins..so not stroke or anything else..
I got more furs stolen from my leg and a drip put in..with fluids and the antivenene..I got a shot to stop anaphalaxis and a anti inflame shot too..i was a pincushion…
Dr Mark said we would wait half an hour and see what happened..mum and dad went and got a coffee..so they could have a cry without stressing me out…then they came back..my heart rate was still up and my vitals had not changed.
Dr Mark said we should go home and rest..he would monitor me closely and ring with an update or if anything changed.
He rang at 6 to say I was no worse and about the same he would give me dinner and what did I like..he would ring again at about 8.30 after he had seen a cow.
At 8.30 he rang to say I had been out with him to leave a peemail..no blood..good sign and that I was responding a bit better..he would ring if anything changed otherwise he would call in the morning.
This morning Dr Rayya was on with Dr Mark..she said when she asked him who the surgical clients were and he said Forrest she said Nooo not Forrest! again BOL….
Dr Rayya said that she wanted me to stay in until 2pm because she wanted more fluids in me before I came home..she said mum and dad could visit and bring me my meds as I was very stressed..
So they came in…Mum and Dad could hear me when the walked in…oh boy..
Dr Rayya said they could let me wander in the ward as she and Dr Mark had a caesarean to do on a pretty kitty.
I had my tablet..a sook with Mum and Dad some yoghurt treats and then they left me!!
At 2 they collected me..Dr Rayya gave me a check and said I would be best at home as I was too stressed..she would leave the bung in in case I had to come back but it looked pretty good to her..she made me sit and be a good boy for some liver treats so she could take some picshures for her Facebark BOL….that was pretty yumm..so I gave her a kiss..she said lucky I was cute because I was such a sooky patient BOL….
Funny mum saw Dr Rayya on Saturday at the Applefest…she was judging the best dressed pets BOL..and here I was worst behaved patient BOL…maybe I should get a prize..
Mum will finish saying thankyou on the POTP bloggie tomorrow as she now has a flare up from the stress and is in a bit of pain ..so I am going to let her cuddle me..i think she deserves it..
Paw pats and many thanks to you all..your POTP really works Blogville 🙂
