Update on Katharine Hepburn
Last week I posted that Katharine wasn't eating and had gone to the vet. She had a fever. They gave her sub q fluids and antibiotics and an appetite stimulant. She ate well as soon as we got home and for the next few days. But since Saturday, her eating has decreased. Unlike last week, she is at least eating something for each meal. I have been giving her water by mouth twice a day. I'm going to wait to see how well she eats overall before giving her another appetite stimulant. She really isn't a big eater. She always eats a few bites and the leaves. So, maybe she is back to her normal.
Her blood work and urine came back the next day and everything is great. She did show some dehydration so the sub q fluids and the water by mouth will hopefully take care of it.
