Winnie's blood work and urine was analyzed on the 30th of September, that is when we found the renal disease and the UTI. At first, it appeared that she didn't like the food (Hills k/d) but now I'm thinking it is the Trimethoprim/sulfa that might be causing Winnie's issues. I gave it to her last night and around 2am she was having dry heaves. After receiving your email this morning, I decided that I would stop giving it and see how she feels. She had a Pepcid and Prostora along with 20mg of Prednisolone but threw up about 30 minutes later.
So a couple more questions.
Since we are mixing so many meds, other than the trimethoprim/sulfa (she had it 9 days), could any of the others be causing her to feel so crappy? Should I back off any others to see if I can notice a change?
This morning I noticed she isn't crunching her tummy and it doesn't appear to be as tight as it was. Any chance of something we are missing, like a blockage?
With renal disease, she is supposed to be on low sodium, low protein diet, can I boil a chicken breast and see if she will eat that this evening?
Her blood work showed just slight BUN numbers above the normal and my vet said she is not in kidney failure, but, do you think all these issues are related to kidney failure and not all the meds?
She already has autoimmune issues and your comment on the antibiotic causing issues with this, could that be more common of a reaction? She was diagnosed with Lupus a few years ago.
Thanks for providing me a second oppinion and helping me with my questions.
P.S. About 2:30, I got her to eat a boilded chicken breast and at 4pm she's still not shown any signs of wanting to throw it up.
