We moved Snuggles to a larger vet hospital facility. They are keeping him overnight and observing. They are stopping the pain meds that had opiuts in it that the 1st vet gave him. They will continue with general antibiotic and IV fluids and will try to feed him later today. They said that Snuggles does not have a temp and all blood work is normal. The barium x ray shows that the barium is moving thru his digestive tract as it should but some is still in his stomach which could mean the pain meds slowed down the digestive tract. They don't feel there is any need to do explatory surgery at this time. Snuggles did show signs when I picked him under his belly that it hurt but only when I picked him up in a certain spot. I am just not sure what it is , help! and the this vet said that it could be as simple as gastritis. what do you think?
