Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

I am so sorry to hear about Zena's condition....it sounds like she was suffering from a Gastric Torsion. The surgery does not always solve this problem and, since she has not yet gotten over this, it is time to take her to a Veterinary Surgeon, if this has not yet been done. This procedure may have to be redone to solve this problem or there has been so much damage to her intestinal tract that nothing will help. This condition carries a very poor prognosis, even with the surgery and most do not survive, I am so sorry to say. Get a second opinion with a specialist to be sure. Just giving all of these medications with no results will not solve thios problem for your sweet Zena.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.

Sincerely, ***** *****
