panleukopenia recovery. still throwing up after 22 days

Pablo is a 5 months old british shorthair mail. he was diagnosed with severe pnleukopenia (distemper) the first 5 days he was throwing up about 20 times a day with severe diarheoa and fever. he also lost his sense of smell in that period. after 2 weeks of iv,injections, and medical veteranary care we got him home. pablo now occasionnaly plays, he started eating (not much but its something). 3 weeks have beens and he stopped vommiting and his metabolism was good again and the fever has gone. on the 4th weeks pablo started throwing up again once a day and cant eat properly as food falls from his mouth. he purrs sometimes but preferes to sit quitly most of the time. we are really worried and would like some advice/more info about panleukopenia recovery and whether this throwing up is normal in this time of recovery. thank you in advance.

Have you talked with the vet that cared for him when he was so ill before? Probably that's the best source of info for you. I don't think a relapse this far along is normal.

Sending along healing vibes and good wishes for Pablo!

Hi ray7667;

Welcome to the forum. Hopefully we can give you some ideas that might help Pablo.

I agree with hazelrunpack on it not being a relapse, because of the time that has passed since the illness.

Would you mind supplying us with some more information on the treatment and medication Pablo was administered when he was so ill. Something else that might be of use would be the type of food he is being fed, for instant dry, canned, or species specific.

This information might trigger some ideas of what the causes with some of the other members, and help to give you something to think about.
