    I'll bet he settles down when he gets home tonight. I'm sure its the stress of not being home with you is why he won't eat. And also the reason for the panting and high BP.

They are letting us to a trial tonight and bring him home if he eats great if NOT I have to take him back in am and they will sedate him so he can rest. The vet agrees. he said he barrels over him to get out of the cage and he thinks he just doesn't want to be there..

    I am so upset and worried .. :crying:

    I agree with larip..he misses his family. He is stressed and that leads to his elevated heart rate and blood pressure! Criminy..every time I go to the Doctor my Blood Pressure goes up to! Imagine him..away fom you for the first time ever.


    Come On Dukester......eat!

    ok we are home.. he is very tired.. so not my Duke.. I just tried to get him to eat. ZERO interest.. any thoughts on how to get him to eat?

    I am a wreck if he doesn't eat by tomorrow we have to take him back.. his bloodwork is good but he just looks exhausted.

    Phew .. so glad he ate. I think he will just need to rest now. Im sure he didn't sleep properly as well as not eat when he was away from you. Bless his little heart .. he's such a Mummy's boy!!!

    Let's tag @cowsmom and @Twice here too to get their input on the diet changes

    He might be totally off ..after spending all that time at vets and not eating. It will take him time to get his legs back. I'm so glad he ate Karen. I will keep him close in my heart.

    @BabyDuke...

    Yea for Duke! You know he MISSED you and just couldn't stand being
    there w/out you, Hun...who could blame him!! My GF said it was okay
    if he missed some meals (because of the inflammation) it gave his tummy
    time to calm a bit before he started eating again (as long as he was getting
    IV at vets). Her dog when gets pancreatis is kept from eating for 48 hrs, IV
    only, then fed small, boneless, skinless chicken breast (or turkey if allergic)
    for a day then a little rice w/that (small amts only) as long as keeping it down.
    You could start adding in unsalted green beans in about a week. I think she
    feeds this a couple wks. She adds a digestive enzyme, a good quality probiotic
    and a good quality mutiVit...after pancreatis is clearly over, to the daily meals.

    Hope this helps, if you have questions, I left my ph # on your PM.
    Love you guys...keeping prayers ongoing! Carol


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Aw, poor Baby Duke.

    I'm sorry I'm late to this but I would also seek a possible second opinion on Duke's condition rather than return him to the same vet, if he condition doesn't improve. This sounds serious and a second set of eyes probably isn't a bad thing.

    I hope he's back to himself soon.
