Tabby - Tuesday Health Update

First off, I would like to say THANKS to Martha & Bailey, Mango and Droopy & Callie for offering their well wishes and prayers and lots of slobber to Tabby. I believe she is getting it all in and she feels the LOVE you are sending her.

This morning (Tuesday) when I got my update on Tabby from Dr. T he said, She is holding her own and seems to be in good spirits.

He said there are two liver counts (enzymes) he is looking at and normal range is 120-130, one of Tabby’s is at 1400 down 200 from last week, but the other one is up to 4000 from 1600. Is said that is not good, but she doesn’t seem to be ready to give up yet so he wasn’t either. He says she is not in pain, which is important to me. So we decided to go ahead with another 24 hours of IV fluids (more PEE, Mango ) So, Tabby will be spending another night at the Vet hospital. I plan on going to see her tonight and take some chicken/rice for Dr. T to try to feed her tomorrow, but it may take me going in to try to get her to eat. She is not fond of all the time she has had to spend at the Vet office, even though they love her and treat her good. And when we get her home and eating we definitely are going to the sweet potato idea that Droopy & Callie suggested. We know she doesn’t like cottage cheese, yogurt at all, so we are open for suggestion.

We hope that she will be feeling well enough to come home at least by the Weekend. Cleo, Winston and Amiee are definitely wondering where she has gone. Last night when I ran to the store, I think they thought I was going to get her and bring her home. Winston I believe misses his Big Girl the most, he wondered, paced and whined all night long. And if you have ever heard Winston Whine, it is terrible. His nickname is Whinny Winston because he does it so much.  He sits and stares out the window hoping to see Tabby come up the drive. Amiee just missing picking on her and being in her face all the time, I am sure Tabby doesn’t miss that.  Cleo, she doesn’t seem to notice much different in house.

I know there is no good outcome, but we will at least get some more time to spend with her. No matter if it is just a few more days, week or months. At this point, I am happy with any additional time I can have with her (without being selfish). We do know that if she has another set pack after this we probably will have to allow her to be with Precious and Elliott. It will be hard but, know we only have them for a short amount of time. BUT with that said, WE ARE NOT GIVING UP HOPE on Tabby.

HoundDogMom, Cleo, Amiee and Winston


  1. We're not giving up on Tabby either!!!! We are still saying lots and lots of prayers for her! Callie's been having trouble with her liver enzymes being way too high so we understand how stress-y that can be. Let us know how Tabby does with the sweet potato! Callie likes momma to smush it up and mix it up with the rice and chicken.

    Lots of slobber,
    Droopy and Callie

  2. Thanks for the update on Tabby. We know how hard it is tempting a sick dog to eat - not us as yet fortunately!
    Chicken, fish, rice, pasta kept Harry going but it is hard! He especially liked scrambled eggs if Tabby can have that.
    We never tried sweet potato.
    Take care, we are thinking of you all.
    love and kisses
    Martha and Bailey xxx
