I'm going to start off by making this as short (yet detailed) as possible. I few weeks ago, my 1 1/2 year old female cat Monkey started throwing up foam (Just about once a day) We figured since it's shedding season here, she had a hairball. She was eating, but not a lot, more like picking or grazing.. we tried tempting her with tuna and ham pieces, she would eat only a little of that. She was drinking water regularly, but we also noticed she was lethargic and not interested in playing. We took her to the vet. Jaundice was the first thing they noticed. She spent 5 days there. She was given a broad spectrum antibiotic and put on fluid therapy, 100cc sub-q twice peer day. They ran 2 blood tests, bot indicating high liver levels, they also sent off a GI panel. By saturday we were able to take her home, providing we gave sub-q fluids ourselves, once daily antibiotic (Orbex) and a dose of 10mg pepcid ac. On Monday, we took her to a specialist that our vet recommended who did an ultrasound. Her liver was slightly enlarged, but nothing else was noticeable. We were given a call today regarding her GI panel which finally came back. They said her pancreatic levels were high: 14.6. They want to put her on prednisone. As of today, she is acting normal, outside of having a bit less energy (Probably from feeling so sick this last 2 weeks) eating, drinking, playing a little here and there, and loving up on her 'boyfriend' Romy, my 12 year old tuxedo cat. I guess what I'm asking is, has anyone else experienced this with their cat and for how long did you use the prednisone? What diet restrictions etc should we consider? I have a list of questions for my boyfriend to ask our vet tomorrow when he picks up the prescription (As I work very full time) But sometimes they kind of rush you out and don't fully address all of your concerns fully. (Let me clarify, I LOVE my vet and everything they have done to get our little girl healthy, and I UNDERSTAND they are a busy clinic, but I want to do the very best to make her feel the best she can) Also, in a little over 2 weeks, we are going away for 5 days, under normal circumstances we would have a friend look in, top off food and water, and scoop the boxes and go, I'm concerned we will have no one to give the pill(s) to the girl cat as she is extremely hard to work with, especially if you are a stranger. Thanks in advance for any help!
