Another Scare for Atlantis

Sunday, February 28, 2021

In addition to thyroid disease our Atlantis came to us with a bunch of digestive issues. He vomits and has diarrhea frequently. We’ve changed his food and make sure that his diet is high quality and intended for sensitive stomachs. Over the past few weeks, it seemed that his digestive issues were getting better,up until Friday night. Atlantis began to vomit and I noticed blood mixed in. Of course, I once again began to panic. I immediately called the vet and got him in for an appointment yesterday. The vet gave him a thorough examination and determined that overall except for his stomach, he was in good health. We talked for a long time. Some IV fluids and medicine were administered and the vet determined that it could be gastroenteritis given that he had this condition since I adopted him. Gastroenteritis can cause bleeding from both ends.

He’s home now and doing OK. I have him on prescription wet food but he does eat the dry food that I must leave out for my other cat Millie. He’s also on a medication that helps coat his stomach. If he doesn’t improve the next step would be an endoscopy to see if he has ulcers or the worst,  cancer.

Our Atlantis is very special to us. He brings us so much love and we want him with us as long as possible.  Our fingers are crossed and we are praying that his digestive issues improve.

Today he is eating normally and seems just fine!
