Whiskers surgery – Peg tube problem 5-15-07

This morning I could not get solids through the PEG tube.  I tied at least six times over two hours.  Out of frustration, I called the Critical Care facility and they suggested that I bring the cat in.   Once I arrived they took all the vital signs and found that the cat had lost one pound. They were concerned and gave me 8 cans of Eukanuba Veterinary Diet Maximum – Calorie food.  I was instructed to give 1 and 1/2 cans a day (before it was 2 and 1/2 cans).   I was told to mix about 1/2 cup of water to this new food as it had a runny consistency already.   They did find the PEG tube to be defective.   Whiskers respiration rate was just over 30 per minute.
