I’m relieved to tell you that even though there were no red flags in the blood work, a different vet in the same practice called to give me the results. Unlike the one I talked to yesterday, she seems to think that Zane might have Esophagitis which is an irritation of the esophagus treated with a form of Pepcid (lovingly called Pupcid) and the anti-nausea medication called something like Serenin. I thought I may have heard Zane bring up food, but I can’t find any piles. He worked all afternoon with no incident. It was so stinking hot that after picking up the medications from the vet, we babied ourselves with a cab ride home. So he has several days of the anti-nausea medication and even more Pupcid. Then we wait and see. The vet today seems to think that with how quickly this started, it’s not necessarily this mega Esophagus thing. Only time will tell, but I am going to assume that Zane and I will be together for a while. If he starts regurgitating again after this treatment, then we go for the Barium test which is the one tracking food with dye in it. That test is the one which will tell us more definitively about whether he has Mega Esophagus. I am hopeful we will not have to go down that path.
