Really stinks to have to wait until Monday!

Did the vet have comments on Max's blood? You would think with the supplements he's on that his blood would easily flow.

I'm sorry he's having such a tough time. hugging

Lisa you and Max can't catch a break. I quit donating blood because it took forever for the draw, one time three people came and left and I was still there slowly filling the bag.

Thanks LJsMom and Val.

Joanne, I had decreased his vitamin E earlier, so I increased that back up when I fed him when we got home. I don't know what else to do right now. Apple juice with manuka honey for hydration and electrolyte support. I gave him the pred, he's resting now. I hope that the bloodwork holds a clue.

I didn't see the vet today, just a couple of the techs, they just squeezed me in so that I could get the bloodwork done. I did leave a note for the vet, explaining what was going on. She does his acupuncture, so isn't in the loop, so to speak.

Val, it sounds like you have slow blood too, what a pain! Somewhere out there, someone has your slow blood smile

Lisa I know Max has lots of allergies but some blood thining foods:

How long are you expecting to wait to see if the pred will do anything?

hugging for you and a gentle pat for Max.

Thank you bianca, I will look those over and see what I can do with his diet.

I am obsessively thinking in circles here on what to do as a next step. Even IF pred is the answer, I need to know how to help the hypovolemia and get more blood flow through his heart and to his tissues. No wonder he was having so many issues with his feet, and maybe even lack of blood flow impeded the fistula healing.

Answers, looking for answers!

Oh, Max - more hugs to you and Mom.

You must be so worried. I hope Monday at least brings more answers than questions this time.

Max says thank you smile

I am so worried, and prone to unpredictable fits of tears frown

I may have a plan for my next steps, wish it weren't the weekend, I have to make a few calls during business hours. I'd feel better if I thought our current vet was making this a priority frown
