Sorry to hear about Tesia's upset tummy. Our vets said to pull all food for 12-24 hours to give it a chance to settle down. Then rice and chicken .. bland diet. I sure hope they can get to the bottom of everything. Is it possible the antibiotics have caused her stomach to get inflamed?

On the anti-nausea meds: We tried Reglan. Dr. Wang (Andy's internist) said it's an old drug. Cerenia worked very very well. He wasn't on antibiotics at the time, so I don't know you need to have something in her stomach. Quite a conundrum. Hopefully they'll give you some answers on how to get her GI tract to settle down. It's so disturbing to see them sick. Fingers crossed and prayers said.

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.
When I first started reading this post, my heart skipped a beat, and I hoped it turned out Tesia did not have cancer. I can imagine how frustrating all this is to you.

Those peanut butter balls have never failed to hide a pill. I am not sure if it because my girls are not to bright or they are just pigs in golden clothing. And they are a lot cheaper than pill pockets

I suspect the stomach coating medicine they are looking at is sulcrate (human brand name) sulcrafate is the generic. I have used it an it works really well. You can possibly get it cheaper if you have the vet write a prescription and take it to a human pharmacy.

Thinking about you and Tesia

Can you give her a digest enzymes plus probiotic. Just a thought I use this to keep my stomach in check with milk.
