I did some updating to a couple of sections on the site this weekend.
This week’s Ask the Vet:
My seven-year old wirehair ate a deer carcass and got very sick. Her
blood tests showed she had elevated pancreatic levels. They put her on
amoxicillin for two weeks and a bland diet. She is a week into this and
is good one day and then has no appetite the next. She drank a lot of
water this morning before vomiting it up. I noticed she has a slight
yellow color to the whites of her eyes, her ears and on her belly. Is
the amoxicillin causing this or does she have a liver problem also?
It’s the weekend and I’ll be taking her into my vet Monday morning.
I would strongly suggest that the blood work be repeated, and that
further diagnostics will also need to be performed, such as x-rays and
an ultrasound. With the yellow change to the eyes I would be very
worried that the liver is now significantly involved in the process.
The amoxicillin should not have anything to do with these new changes. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.
As a teaser I actually have started an actual editorial calendar which will kick off in February with some exciting new podcasts, articles and more.
