    Pickles is 2.5 years old and was brought into the vet yesterday for a suspected bowel obstruction. They did end up doing surgery but there was no obstruction. The bowels were very red and inflamed with petical hemorrhages. They also found some clear fluid in his abdomen. He was given an antibiotic and pain meds to continue at home. He was also given a shot of steroids while still at the vets. A biopsy was taken to be sent out for histology. We have no idea what is causing this. The fluid in the abdomen had a protein level of 6.1.

    I now have him home and he’s been here for a few hours. He is about 24 hours post op and is just laying there. Not moving around at all, not drinking or eating anything. What should I be expecting and when should I worry or take action if he doesn’t eat or drink?

    As for his blood work. All is in normal ranges except his ALKP is 13. and his GLU is 195. His NEU is 15.74 and his WBC is 18.62 so it’s just under the high range. He has been tested prior for Feline Leukemia and vaccinated for it. He is 10 lbs and has not lost weight so far. He is an indoor cat with 4 others. All have been healthy thus far.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you!

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
