We were able to pick Gizmo up from the vet this afternoon. He is not out of the woods yet, but good enough to come home for now. We have to bring him back on Tuesday for another blood draw.
He's eating K/d (Hills brand) canned and dry food combined. He loves it! And he's drinking water out of his bowl. He did pull his IV out last night, but it's been in since Monday p.m., so he must be feeling better. No treats or anything else can be injested ... only his food.
When we arrived at the vet's office, he heard our voices (Megan, my granddaughter, was with us and he LOVES her) and immediately let us know where he was and that he wanted OUT! LOL He went out to potty before we left and when we got home.
When we arrived home, he went straight to get a drink of water. I had washed his bowl, so it had to be filled. We have to keep track of how much water and food he takes in. So, I used a 2 liter bottle for the water - which filled the bowl. He drank for a full 4 minutes ... and then drank some more.
He ate a cup of dry food and 1/2 can of soft food combined. Then he went outside made a yard deposit and peed again. When he came in he went straight to ouir bed and layed down to go to sleep.
It's good to have him home. We just need to make sure he's drinking and eating the good food. His creatinine started at 10, then went to 7.5, then to 3.9. The goal is to get it to 3.0, so were not out of the woods yet.
