Sigmund and the Inflamatory Bowel Syndromes

Turns out, Sigmund got so bad he had to stay at the vet's office for two days. He had an ultra sound one day and an endoscopy the next day . Good news! He does not have lymphosarcoma - he has inflammatory bowel syndrome, which Dr. Murphy suspected all along. He gets prednisone in his ears twice a day (for 8 weeks) and he eats only hypo-allergenic dry food (for the rest of his life).

There were early signs - he was only able to eat Royal Canin's gastro intestinal canned food for quite some time. Everything else made him vomit.

Whew on that one!

Oh my, so glad you've figured out Sigmund's mysterious ailment and he will be fine. People who don't have cats or dogs just don't understand!

As for your earlier wild Trader Joe's tale - wow, that sounds so strange! Thank you for visiting my blog. ;)
