Just caught up with Tesia's thread. So glad that you have her back home with you but sorry to hear of her upset tummy

Hope that you get on okay at the vets having the stitches out, but it sounds like she is healing up nicely

If you decide it's the antibiotic causing the diarrhea, you might try giving her some yogurt with active yeast cultures in it. You just have to do it several hours apart from the antibiotics because milk products make them ineffective. But the yeast would help her gut.

Thinking of you and T.

On the Pepto-Bismol: Andy's regular vet is about 65 and an 'old school' vet who doesn't always reach for a med when something as simple as Pepto will help.

He also recommend it when Andy was having Diarrhea. At times the diarrhea was really bad Dr. Wang added Metronidazole. I know Pepto has always made my stomach feel better when I've been on antibiotics or not feeling well.

She'll be feeling better soon. It's so tough when they aren't, but this too shall pass

Just getting caught up on the last couple of days. Sorry to hear about her tummy. I totally agree with feeding her whatever she'll eat - and doing it by hand. Make her chicken if she'll eat that - lots of protein there!

Will keep my fingers crossed for a good visit at the vets tomorrow and a more calm tummy.

I hope Tesia feels better today!
About the Tramadol, yes, I agree, it can cause nausea. Diarrhea can be caused by the antibiotics. As long as there is no possibility of a GI bleed, Pepto is fine for upset stomachs.
Toby gehts Tramadol on bad days in addition to Rimadyl. He was also on Tramadol for several months post-op late last year and early this year. Tramadol does make him very sleepy and not want to play. One vet said, give it with food because it can cause nausea, the other vet said it does not matter. So far, it has never caused nausea for Toby, knock on wood.
Advise, if you or anybody reading this, wants to stop with Tramadol, please start slowly weaning off of the medication, because it can cause withdrawal symptoms. Start cutting the dose in half, than that in half, etc till weaned off.

I wish Tesia all the best and no more nausea and diarrhea.

Okay. This case just gets more and more complicated and frustrating.

The histochemistry came back today - the stains. They ruled about T-cell lymphoma, B-cell lymphoma, AND Amelanotic Melanoma.

It is completely baffling. My own vet is baffled. Even the lab scientist (pathologist?) who did the tests is surprised. He is doing additional tests at no cost.

I will be interested to hear what the surgeon at the VEC says. I hope to speak to him later today. I asked my own vet if this could mean it is NOT cancer. She said, sadly, no. It's just not any of those three. I have been wondering if it is soft tissue sarcoma. She said she had wondered that, too.

It's all confusing and frustrating because it delays any treatment.

Meantime... poor girl is still not eating well. She seemed interesting in her kibble this morning, but actually regurgitated while she was eating. Right back into the bowl. Poor thing. (And yes, I did go through it all to make sure the meds didn't come back up. They didn't - it was straight kibble). She hasn't asked for any more since. I am going to try the chicken and rice route tonight.

The back and side stitches are out. The big wound is healing well, and those stiches come out in another 10 days.

Millie's Mom, those cereal and peanut butter treats sound amazing!! I would eat those!

Danny - I checked with my vet about the Pepto. She said because it contains ASA (aspirin) I shouldn't give it to Tee since she is usually on an NSAID. But she is going to look into another anti-nausea drug and if it doesn't conflict with the antibiotic she is on, she will give us some of that. There is also another Pepto-like liquid that would coat her throat and stomach. She's checking counter-indications on that oen, too. There is caution because of this antibiotic - it's more rare, so they just want to make sure it's okay to mix.

I hope I can talk to the surgeon and/or oncologist today about those stains. Just baffling.

I don't know what to say, except that I continue to send prayers and hugs to you and sweet Tesia.

I'm so sorry that you don't have the answers yet! Praying that you have them today or very soon and that there is a good treatment plan for your beautiful Tesia! I know this is so hard! Sending thoughts for strength for both of you.

H,i so sad to hear about Tesia's poor tummy, you are doing an amazing job, she is so lucky to have such a wonderful caring mum. I can only suggest to carry on what your doing, feeding her little and often. After Barnaby had his surgery I just fed him pieces of chicken, hot dog sausage and anything else he would take. I know this is ten times harder for you at the moment, all of us across the miles in scotland are praying for you and our thoughts are with you at this time, try to keep your spirits up, your doing an amazing job. Golden Hugs to you all x
