Thanked 2 Times in 1 Post
Sorry for the delay in replying - had a busy day yesterday and also some internet issues!
So, good news is Marley is MUCH better, the scan showed up nothing in his stomach. The vet came round, with an English speating vet nurse so we could discuss what had happened.
The vet say the problem was that Marley picked up a bacteria from the lake (apparently quite common with this lake) which made him vomit, he has quite a sensitive stomach so I guess all the vomiting inflammed his stomach lining etc and made it worse. Also he was not eating and I was giving him strong anti biotics which was causing more vomit as his stomach was empty.
Now the vomiting has stopped and he seems to be doing great, his appetite is back, although I am only feeding him a little at a time. He is the same Marley he was before! I am so happy!!
Thank you for all the help and thoughts, it means so much. My fiance couldn't believe it when I told him of all the messages and support we were recieving!
The bad news for Marley is that his days of swimming in the lake are now over!!!
