Well, Jade's stomach problems persisted for a few days too many, diarrhea constantly and she even threw up
the rice w/chicken we tried feeding her as per Metroid's recommendation earlier in the thread. So we took her to see Dr. Bill on Wednesday night and left her overnight for observation. Ended up staying until this morning (although she was ready to come home yesterday, we had to leave her another night because neither of us was free to go get her before they closed) and she came home with some meds she needs to take for the next two weeks. They gave her two shots of anti-biotics while she was in there too.
Between the 3 nights stay, tests (blood and urine), and the meds, the visit cost us $445
so I told her she better stay healthy from here out because at that rate it's cheaper to replace her! I'm sure you can all tell from the pic below how concerned she is with that threat:
Oh yeah - it was a kidney infection apparently. Blood test came back okay but pee test showed blood and some elevated other counts (can't remember now what it was) and the doc said she was sensitive to the touch (with some pressure) in the kidney area when we brought her in. The only thing that concerned me was they said she didn't poop once from Wed night when we dropped her but as soon as I got her home and put her out in the yard she took a nice healthy dump (and it looked pretty normal too, diarrhea gone YAY!) so I suspect it was just her shyness. She doesn't like to be watched while she poops, which I find very ironic since she loves to come in the can with me and sit and stare at me while I drop a deuce if I leave the door open
