Thank you to Ann of Zoolatry for this lovely badge.
POST-VET VISIT -
In a way it turned out ok as I would not have been surprised if there had been a cancer diagnosis - this didn't happen today. Shiloh does have an enlarged liver that has somehow made the stomach rotate. He also has developed some fluid around his lungs, jaundice and still has a bacterial infection. Sometime later this next week, we are headed to Kansas State University Vet Hospital so Shiloh can get an ultrasound of his liver and maybe we can find out why his liver is enlarged - that appointment will not be set until Monday. Because of the fluid around his lungs, his breathing had become somewhat rapid.
Yesterday the vet gave him an antibiotic shot, pain med, narcotic shot and a shot to fight nausea - and also 3 cans of Prescription l/d diet for his liver problems. All of the meds have helped him relax a bit and calm down his breathing - he was pretty much out of it all afternoon and most of the evening yesterday after we got back from the dogtor..
Lady Shasta knows something is wrong with her brother and is sticking by him. I will keep you updated as I find out more.
By the way, if there are any other pupsters/pet parents living with liver disease/problems and had to change diets - this is new to me, don't know if it will be a life long thing but also may change Lady Shasta's diet since her and Lord Shiloh are truly related (uncle/niece).
