Rusty is sick!

Everyone, say a prayer or send some good vibes towards Rusty. He hasn't eaten since early last week, has been vomiting, and has only drank a tiny bit of water. We have taken him to the vet to get blood work done, and to make sure this isn't a problem with his kidneys- it isn't. His WBC count was soaring, however. The vets aren't sure what is wrong with him, but suspect either some sort of germ or maybe even poison They put him on appetite stimulators and antibiotics, so hopefully he'll start feeling better.

Poor little guy. I hope he gets well soon and you get some answers.

Re: Rusty is sick!

Good news! I have heard word from my sisters back at home, and they say that Rusty seems to be in higher spirits. He's had some water, and a few bites of food. And they even convinced him to have some sliced turkey, just so he could get some food in his tummy. He hasn't vomited today, and he's walking around just a little. He's still tired and sickly however.

Re: Rusty is sick!

Yes, baby steps!

I am happy to report that Rusty is doing much better. I think it is now safe to say that he is on the road to recovery. I am glad- I was not ready to lose him (not that I'll ever be).

Thank you guys for your kind words.
