There has been no bloody stools after the one I reported in the afternoon.
It wasn’t efficient feeding Cleo the crushed Metrogyl tablet and mixing the Tranexamine Acid (TXA) powder (from the capsule) with pasty food. Perhaps only half of it got in. So tomorrow, I’m going to try to plonk the Metrogyl tablet and the TXA capsule down her throat.
But at least Cleo didn’t try to bite me when I fed her the medicines. Maybe she knows I need to do it for good intentions, or she is not strong enough to resist like she used to.
Please wish me luck.
Cleo did not eat on her own too. She I had to syringe feed her which she didn’t like at all.
But she did show some interest in Cubgrub’s CKD Chicken this evening. I think she licked a bit, but it was an insignificant amount.
I also spent a lot of time researching on the interactions between the medicines since Cleo has to take so many of them. Thanks to Ming-Yi’s help (she is a pharmacist), I managed to work up a schedule to avoid interactions between medicines, as much as possible.
The ones in blue aren’t for the long term, so once those are finished, it should be less stressful. I really wish I didn’t have to give her so much medicines, but each one is needed to address the issues that she has.
Clopidogrel is out of the schedule for now until there are no more signs of any bleeding. Anyway, her heart condition is not that bad too.
The hardest to feed is actually the Metrogyl because that even though it is just a portion of the tablet, it’s still very big. I will figure something out tomorrow.
For now, I have finished all her evening medicines. Phew…
I gave her transdermal Mirtazapine because she did not eat today. Hopefully, it will help give her an appetite. How I wish one day (soon!), all pet medicines can be given transdermally. Then we won’t have to pill them anymore.
Samantha was keeping Cleo company this evening, sleeping next in front of the door of Cleo’s cage. Now, it’s the Blondies and Riley’s turn. It’s good to be home with family, isn’t it? It is comforting.
Ming-Yi brought her Kalimba (a Zimbabwean musical instrument which has gentle harp-like sounds) and played some songs for Cleo too. Cleo responded positively so Ming-Yi has left the instrument her for me to play for Cleo!
