Had been doing decently after rescued (med seizure for abuse, disc herniation, told to euth but o persued). Then vaccinated 2018 and allergies started - hives, facial swelling, U/S - sliding hiatal hernia, performed gastropexy. Then put on z/d, MTZ prn, and Losec SID. He became very skinny with Pica, ate a toy Dec 2018 - not actually scoped and removed until Mar 2019, then biopsied and diagnosed with lymphocytic-plasmacytic and eosinophilic enteritis and put on the above long list of meds. Only started Lukeran 2 moth prior to initial visit and lost ^^ muscle tone and ligaments starting to go acc to o. Presently can only eat scrambled eggs or emu with green beans, Honest Kitchen. After 2 months on any particular diet he starts to have a weird cough/gags, chews feet, regurgitates all night.
Finnegan tends to be an anxious boy, history of dog reactivity but has improved with training, likes to sleep on heating pads, less cuddly on chemo, poops out quickly (seems SOB to o) on a short walk, appetite voracious. In April he was SO skinny/emaciated with MCS 3/5. His tongue was light pink/lavendar, dry and pulses toned to taut (seemed to calm with SP4). His eyes were bright and vital however which I found amazing considering! I did dome AQ ( GV20, GV14, BL19, BL23, BL40, ST36, SP4, Rx'd Liu Jun Zi Tang and BZYQT. The LJZY seemed to make him itchy soon after starting so o stopped, but he had really good energy for 3 days after AQ. I added XYS instead thinking the LJZT was too tonifying but felt he still needed more SP and LIV support for Qi Stagnation??
By May he was gaining weight and seemed to be doing much better, calmer, less reactive and grumpy. O stopped chemo and dec Dex. Flash forward to June 16, good weight but belly skin turning black/licking at belly and feet again and gagging at night with white foam at nostrils, every night from ~8:30pm-3am. Seems like he's choking, trying to clear. Only getting Dex periodically. Thought ShaoYang disharmony so stopped BZYQT , cont;d XYS, and stated Open the Liver Canals. Yest back for AQ and still gagging! O tried more Losec, propping head up. Seems really tired on OTLC.
I', thinking this gagging is regurg?? PLEASE HELP!!!!!
