Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta , a licensed veterinarian and am happy to answer your question.
I have a few questions to help me better assist you.
Is Buttons still wanting to eat?
Did this come on all of a sudden? Is he still vomiting?
Did this staggering just start?
Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
He does not seem to be eating very much, I have only seen him approach his bowl once and take a few small nibbles. He is no longer vomitting. It came on very all of a sudden. He is not really staggering he is more like taking extra (different) effort walking and climbing stairs
Does that make sense to you, Taylor?
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
If he is in kidney failure, is there any effective treatment for this type of thing. He does not seem in pain right now, just acting strange and secluding himself. He enjoyed a treat of some greek yogurt today and was excited for it. He is resting comfortably in one of his favorite spots right now (not secluding). He is very much enjoying attention and does not make any noise or crying when I palpate in areas. I don't want to cause him the stress of going to the vet (it is SUPER stressful for him) if it is not 100% necessary. My action plan right now is to see how he is doing in the morning. If no improvement then go to vet. Does that sound reasonable?
Buttons seems to be back to his old self. He is eating, drinking, and going potty fine. He even jumped onto the bed to snuggle today and is back into his normal habits (well sleeping locations). This is so very strange. Thank you so much for your help. I am so grateful and relieved that he is back to himself today.
Thank you so much, Taylor for your kind rating and generous bonus. It is very much appreciated! Even though you have rated, we can still communicate. If you have other questions, please Reply. I am always happy to help.
Have a great day, Taylor...Buttons too!
