Thanks for your question regarding your 3 year old girl Coco who has been acting strangely the last few days, as well as having some bloody vomit
There are a few things that could be going on here and good on you for having her up to date with her deworming medication
This could still be due to a large gastrointestinal worm burden
However she could have something else going on here such as a GI obstruction or even an infectious issue.
Whether you need to get her seen right now depends on her current behavior
For now, please keep an eye on her mucus membranes, capillary refill time and respiratory rate tonight as follows (do be careful she doesn't try to bite you):Mucus membranes - flip her lip and look at the color of her gums. They should maintain a nice salmon pink color. Get her to the emergency Vet if they appear white or very pale pink, or if they are a dark deep red color.Capillary Refill time - this measures blood perfusion and test this by putting your thumb on her gum to apply pressure. After you release your thumb you will see the gum blanch. Capillary refill time is the amount of time it takes (in seconds) for the gum to return to a healthy pink color from the blanched white color. If 2 seconds or less don't worry - if it is taking significantly more time, again - off to the emergency Vet.Respiratory Rate - if she is continuously panting throughout the night this is a sign of shock and or pain and a signal for a trip to the emergency Vet.
hi there do you think i should give her more panacur?
If she is lethargic, or continues to vomit, then you will need to get her seen tonight
If you gave her a full dose just recently (according to her weight), then no, you shouldn't need to give her anymore for another 3 months
If she seems otherwise ok right now, then starting her on a bland diet would be a good diea
Cooked bonless skinless chicken breast and boiled rice is ideal for this
But as above - if she seems lethargic now, or continues to vomit, you should get her seen tonight
ok thank you she is lethargic and she is breast feeding im so worried
Ok - that is a concern
It could even be something like a low calcium level causing some of these symptoms
For her and the kittens' sake, I do think you are safest getting her checked tonight if you can
It is better to be safe than sorry when little ones are involved!
Let me know how you get on if you get a chance
thank so much
Best of luck and keep in touch
