I feel my chances are pretty slim, but you don't know if you don't ask. Any help anyone could offer in this department would be amazing
Butter just had a sneeze so I ran over and it was opaque with a streak of blood. It's very dry in this house (Chicago winter and central heating) but with a room humidity of roughly 28-30%. He does have a sensitivity to orchard and blue grass hay dust (way more intense to Timothy dust). I read up on a thread from 2006 about a pig with a URI and a bit of blood. Everyone seemed to not think much of it (that they weren't related). Really hoping that's the case here. He's due for a recheck next Wednesday. I wonder if we need to go sooner.
So all the vet can suspect is that he's crashing.
Any advice in making his passing more comfortable is welcome. It's quiet, he's limply laying in his bed and is covered a bit to stay warm. I don't know whether it's worth forcing him to eat and drink fluids anymore.
His eyes have sunken very deep, into their pockets. And he hasn't urinated for 8 hours despite having had 30 ml.
They say his wbc is low. So they don't think it's the URI relapsing. I feel differently about that. The culture won't be back for a week.
- And got the T-shirt
You're doing the right thing by keeping him warm. You may need to cover him with something a little heavier, as body temperature also drops during the dying process.
I'm so sorry, for him and for you.
