Customer Question

Requesting Dr B. Confirmed Pancreatitis with ultrasound. Kitty home but not eating or drinking. Force fed a little this am with pain meds and anti nausea. He was much better in hospital with IV and also after subcutaneous fluids. I wasn't sent home with instructions for fluids but think that's only thing missing for home health care?

Hello again,

First, I am glad to hear that they were able to get a diagnosis for Stripes.

Can you tell me which anti-nausea medication and pain medications he is on? And how often?

Was he eating for them in the hospital?

Do you have fluids on hand to use?
