Default Good Ultra-sound for Kitzi

Because Kitzi has had a few "bad" nights we were able to get him into the University clinic here for an ER ultra-sound---which surprisingly turned out great. So now we don't know why he is having restless, seemingly painful episodes after he eats. He also does not like being held at this time. He prefers to lie on the floor in a sprawled out position. For now I will just observe & feed smaller meals. Last night we did just that & he did not have an "episode" like he has been having after he eats. The distended gall bladder seems to have disappeared so we won't do the ursodiol but will get & give the denamarin when Pops returns from the US (ordered on line). We will repeat the urinalysis mid month or so.
We were able, while @ the clinic (have to be referred by one's vet to get in) to make an appointment for an ultra-sound for Lisi for the 16th---so we will see how her kidneys & liver are at that point---she has not yet had one.
Onward & upward as they say!

I sure hope everything is ok with the furkids. They have both gone through so much already. Lots of wet kisses from their buddies Bogie and Cassie. Sending lots of healing thoughts.

It's great that the ultra sound was good but it would have been nice to have some answers. Hoping Lisi's turns out good too.

Sounds like you are off to a good start and I'm so glad the ultrasound was negative of issues. Hoping the little guy feels better very soon!

That is good news. Has K had a fecal sample tested lately? I wonder if there was an intestinal parasite that he may have picked up in the US to which his system had no resistance.

Thank you Reva, Kathy, Bridget, Walter, Sandy & Addison! I am doing the happy dance. It is true that I want more closure on the "why this pain routine" but I am glad he has had a good night's sleep (me too!) & so far tonight no episode. I am giving him small meals & no fat at the moment.
Walter, we have not done a fecal---I did give him a Milbamax wormer after we returned from the US ---which he hasn't had for 4 years! I think it was time for one---although I give hardly any chemicals (essentially none) but this seemed a small thing to do one time to make sure.
Addison, thank you for the prayers! I know they help me even if Kitzi doesn't know that!
I just want things to finally settle down. We have been testing & trying things since the 4th of Nov. It gets old.
I told DH tonight that we will do another urine test in late March & I won't stop holding my breath until it comes back clean. Lisi will do her ultra sound March 16th & I am praying we will finally be out of the "concerned" area. For now I will just keep Kitzi on a somewhat smaller diet w/little fat & no dairy.
One super up-side to living in Vienna---I paid only 60 euros today for an ultra-sound for Kitzi! So far I have spent almost 3000 $ for this crazy dental!
