I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you stlll need help. In general, if my patient can't hold down either food or medications, he should be hospitalized and treated parenterally - in any manner other than orally. I understand your financial constraints, however. Can you upload a copy of his test results to our conversation? I understand that you might not have a copy of the results at home but his vet should be able to give you one which you could scan into your computer and give me the link or you can photograph the page(s) and upload the images by using the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see such an icon) or by using an external app such as dropbox.com. I not only review the test results but note which tests should have been performed but weren't. Which medications were sent home with him? Please give me an update on him.
