2008-05-05 Coco

I spoke with the Veterinary Neurologist at the University.  He figures 4 days to 40.  Not four months.  He feels it’s too late for an ultrasound.  He promised she will experience little pain.  Just weakness, confusion and disorientation.  Hopefully we can continue to keep her seizure free.  Tonight she’s having trouble keeping food down.  I’m feeding her one spoonful of Solid Gold’s Turkey, Ocean Fish, Carrots & Sweet Potatoes Canned Dog Food every half hour.  I don’t know what I’ll do overnight.  Or all day tomorrow.  She seems a bit restless/confused/nervous.  I’m glad I never got around to changing the Dogs’ bedding this weekend, as I would have ended up doing it again today.  Coco is vomiting more and more.  I called the University’s Veterinary ER.  There’s no treatment.  Just wait and see what happens.  I’m giving up on food.  Instead I’m putting Wholefood Farmacy’s Stardust 2 Hydr8 which is a blend of Baking Soda, Startudst Pure Salt & Sweet Leaf in her water.  I put this stuff in my water when I go to the gym or feel otherwise compromised from a hydration standpoint.  I will give her controlled access to this water for a bit and see what happens.  Google tells me Stevia is an herb that tastes sweet but is not sugar, so I’ve added a teaspoon of sugar to the water bowl.  Hanna won’t drink it.  It could be a long night.  I gave Coco her prednisone in sausage, half a turkey dog and a few slurps of water.
