After the massive vomiting (which resulted in me washing the cushion covers and mats), she just sat and watched me sew the next blanket. I think she could not agree with the Laxatone.
The plan for this morning is to give her one teaspoon of ID. Just one teaspoon and no more, the vet said, as the most important thing is to stop the vomiting. The vet didn't want to give her any anti-vomiting medicine as that has a possibility of leading to more complications for Tabs' case (as serious of a rupture in the intestines, if it goes wrong, so we don't want to take any risks at all).
This is a safer way. Diet control and hopefully, the medicine works and that nasty blockage HAS to come out, somehow.
I gave her a litter box in the downstairs bathroom, but there is no poo yet. Meanwhile, she is separated from all the other cats (she gets the whole house to herself). She did want to nibble on wheatgrass last night. I guess that would be their natural way of getting rid of the blockage.
Tabs had no appetite at all this morning. I force fed that one tiny teaspoon of ID so that I could give her the Metro and Gentle Digest. I didn't dare push my luck with the Laxatone again as it might induce vomiting and all efforts with that one teaspoon of food and medicine would go to waste.
I'm watching her now to see if she can retain that one teaspoon of ID and the medicine. It's been half an hour. So far, so good.
Tabs has lost some weight already...this is one weight loss I don't welcome!
Indy is concerned for his friend.
When your pet falls sick, nothing else matters anymore - you just want to do everything to make her well again. But some things cannot be hurried; it has to be allowed to take its course. Hence, Anne Sewell's "Do your best and leave the rest; 'Twill all come right, some day or night" rings true.
