I can't get to my vet until tomorrow ... I have a 10 year

Customer Question

I can't get to my vet until tomorrow ... I have a 10 year old blue roan spaniel, she has always been prone to pancreatitis she also is prone to Evans syndrome ..
We have always been able to catch this in early stages and put her on a course of steroids and frequent blood tests..
Since a pup she was predisposed to pancreatitis .. I know how to recognise the symptoms.. Which at the moment she is very lethargic and slightly hot ..
She cannot jump up on her bed as her back legs are weak ( I always know when that happens that it's pancreatitis ).. She was sick with bile this morning and doesn't want to eat..
However she is drinking water...
I gave her half a tramadol and she is sleeping.. My vet is not available until tomorrow morning..
Could you please tell me is there anything I can do tonight to make her more comfortable ?

Hello and thank you for your question. I am sorry that no one has reached out to you before now. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) How much does she weigh?
2) Is she on any medication aside from the tramadol?
