Happy St. Patrick’s Day! And good news!





The vet emailed me last night with Abbey’s endoscopy biopsy results. Her stomach is normal and though there was slight inflammation in her small intestine, the lab said it could be called insignificant. So good news!

We still don’t know what is causing Abbey’s vomiting, but the vet thinks it’s a food allergy or sensitivity. She is going to come up with a strategy and be back in touch on Monday.

Meanwhile, Abbey has not had any vomiting episodes this week. But since the endoscopy on Monday, she has not been eating very much. We took her back to the vet yesterday to make sure she was all right. An ultrasound showed no problems, she didn’t appear to have abdominal pain, and her vitals were normal. Sometimes the endoscopy can irritate the throat. So they gave her an injection of pain medicine. The vet also said sometimes anesthesia can affect cats for longer than expected. She is eating more normally now and getting back to her normal self. 

Thank you for your prayers and good thoughts for Abbey!

  5. Happy Catrick's Day! And we are very glad that the lab news is good. This is one of Mom's great frustrations - it can be almost impossible sometimes to diagnose a feline. Especially with stomach ailments. Toby is an uber sensitive tummy too, it comes and goes.

  8. put your paws together for abbey. whoo-hoo, clapclapclap. i have the same problem from time to time in my house. most of the time, it seems to be furball-related or from eating too fast. i have multiple cats, but everyone has his/her own dish and space, so there's no reason to speed-eat. but they're all rescues, so maybe it's a habit they picked up long before i got them. --suz in ohio
