well, patsy still hasn't pooed, so i called my reg vet at home just now to see what she thought. she said i shouldn't bother to continue giving her the metoclopromide as it didn't seem to be doing anything. she is going to see patsy in the morning (she is in at 10 am). she said everything else sounds okay, and that the lack of vomiting, the continued eating, etc., are all very good signs, so she doesn't think it is disastrous. she said she'll likely try a laxative first to see if that does the trick.
will keep you all updated as things progress. thanks again for your support and help. you are all pet angels!!!!!!
tracy : )
(and patsy - meow!)
