Poor Mac isn't feeling well...

He vomited a few times yesterday and was a "bit flat" last night.

I tried to get some water into him (on Jules' advise thank you :wink: ) without much luck.

He slept well but is very quiet this morning - not looking for his breakfast or anything :(

I think he is a little dehydrated - He won't entertain the spooning method and I don't have a syringe... his skin is a tiny bit slow to return on a pinch test. I'lll keep trying this morning and maybe give him a tiny bit of food at lunchtime - if no improvement then I'll wizz hi of to the vets.

Can I have some get well soon vibe please?

Thanks :wink:

Oh Poor lad :( . Lots of get well soon vibes for him and yes if he is still feeling bad then I think you're wise to give the vets a ring.

he is not interested in food at all 8O (first time for everything!)

so TBH not gonna wait and will call vets this morning...

Can I ask a question - we moved recently and registered with a local vet. I do not like her and was thinking of changing - do i have to go there this time as I haven't had a chance to register somewhere else (I have since found another lovely practice that was recommended) or can I go to new one? though they won't have his notes etc...

I would just ring the vet you liked and ask to register Mac with them. Hope he's feeling better soon.

I'd go to the vet you liked too. It isn't as if he is being treated for an on going problem and they need his notes, so I think it's just a case of "you pays your money and you takes your choice". :wink:

Well we're back...

New vet just lovely - I am so happy I went there...

He isn't actually sure though what is up with Mac - He hopes it is just a tummy bug, but he is concerned he may hve a blockage as isnn't going to the loo :(

He is treating it conservatively, with a shot of anti-biotics, a shot of anti-sickness and some pro-biotic powders...

I have to try feeding him tonight - with sensitive food - and call vets in the morning.

Vet expects there to be some diarrhea today - if there isn't then it might be that he has something stuck in there...

Mac is very quiet - he was flat out in surgery the whole time - though didn't stop wagging his tail :wink: . He also has a slight fever. :(

He sleeping next to me on the sofa - I have syringed the powder down his neck (much to his digust) I am actually quite worried about my boy :(

oh no... poor Mac :( Its awful when they're unwell, if only they could speak :(

I hope he starts picking up once the antibiotic jab takes effect!!! Has he had anything to drink?

{{{{{get well soon}}}}} vibes for Mac xxx
