Unhappy Zilla

Zilla hasn't eaten anything since Tuesday morning. He vomited an hour after his chemo treatment and again five hours later. His stomach was empty so it was all bile. At 3am he regurgitated bile again. Today he drank water and seemed more alert. His lipase enzyme is slightly elevated. This combined with the non-appetite and vomiting.

After work I visited with him for about 45 minutes. I was supposed to entice him into eating something. Instead, I made him vomit more bile stuff. The second time it really didn't look right; it looked like blood to me. Adverse reactions to the chemo drugs usually take place 24 - 48 hours after treatment. Because of his lipase level the vet thinks he may be developing pancreatitis. He's slowly losing a few pounds. He's just above 47 now. I hope he feels better tomorrow morning.
