thank you very much. You have helped me make the decision to seek veterinary advice locally now.
Honey has spent the night at emergency vet on a drip for fluid and pain relief. Transferred to my own vet this morning. All blood tests and x ray so far have come back negative. Kidney & liver functions ok. No twisted gut. Latest from my vet is she has a heart murmur, raised temp, and the weakness in her legs is worse. She is on pain relief, anti inflammatories, fluids and anti-biotics and being monitored. They are doing all they can for her and monitoring her closely.
Thank you for your care, interest and advice.
Later update: Honey was put to sleep at lunch time that day. The vet was unable to accurately diagnose the problem but test results and examination pointed to pancreas problems. Honey was still in pain and distress despite being on morphine and rapidly weakening so we took the decision to end her suffering.
Thank you for your help and caring.
