Otto, rushed to ER with vomiting and diarrhea. He’s so sad…

See important information below about probiotics and broad spectrum antibiotics

PRAY FOR: Otto, 13 yo. Liver and Kidney disease. Lord Jesus You know what this dear boy has endured over the past few weeks with vomiting and diarrhea. We ask that You would halt this inflammatory process in his body and heal it with a Word of Your Power. Bring his liver and kidney numbers into balance. Help him fight the suspected Gallbladder infection which could be causing this. Comfort this dear boy and his wonderful Mom Heather and Dad Tom. They have suffered so many losses this year. We ask for a healing miracle for Otto. In the Name of Adonai M’falti God my Deliverer. Amen. <3 Caren

Heather Rammer
Even a private P[r]ayer with you is all we need
Prayers for Pets
Ok sweetie, that’s fine too. Tell me what’s going on. Maybe send me a clip of video so I can see his behavior. I’m done with what I was in the middle of.
Heather Rammer
This is him Wednesday When I had him at vet for vomiting an diarrhea. We thought he was little better yesterday and this am started with diarrhea so off to get this am. Labs kidney involved and liver worse, ultrasound shows kidney disease and worsening inflammation of bowels

Psalm 68: 20 Our God is a God of salvation, and to GOD, the Lord, belong deliverances from death.

Psalm 107:6 ESV Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.


Prayers for Pets
Oh my so sad what a beautiful sad but sweet looking boy. Are you sure you don’t want me to share? Just looking at his picture puts a lump in my throat… I’m sorry Heather… not again… do you know what precipitated this?
Heather Rammer
You can if you have time I know you get a lot of requests

Prayers for Pets
I’m seriously having a hard time not shedding tears right now I’m look at that picture of Oscar and it just breaks my heart for you. 😣
Heather Rammer
I wish we were neighbors
Prayers for Pets
Me too!
Heather Rammer
It’s Otto but I like the name Oscar
Prayers for Pets
I thought of you as I listened to this today some mind-bending stuff in here https://castbox.fm/vb/303890552
Presidential polls: hard to believe

Heather Rammer
We can’t loose another this year
Prayers for Pets
Oops! I had an Oscar just recently😅 I’ve been through so many in the past few weeks it’s hard to keep everybody straight😜
I know that’s what I I am concerned about
Heather Rammer
He is our youngest and nixie baby
Prayers for Pets
It’s sure not looking good at this moment. I definitely think we need the support of the community. Lord our Father please stop the vomiting and diarrhea right now by the blood of Jesus Christ!
How old is he?
Heather Rammer
13
Prayers for Pets
Did he have a recent birthday I was thinking he was 12 last time I saw him

I know why I called him [Oscar] because I just posted Oscar’s video on Rumble yesterday https://rumble.com/vabg1x-oscar-post-bladder-surgery-survived-a-year-of-urinary-blockages.html
Oscar, post bladder surgery; survived a year of urinary blockages
Thank you all for your prayers!!!!!!! Oscar went through a harrowing year; nearly died. Now mom Phyllis is spoiling him😁💝 https://prayersforpets1.org/oscar-post-bladder-surgery-survived-a-year-of-urin

Oscar
Heather Rammer
Cute guy
Prayers for Pets
Ok, see? I did know who he was I just got confusdigated (my daughter’s toddler term😂)
Yeah Oscar went through a lot but he’s a young ‘un he’s going to be just fine after a harrowing couple of months with bladder surgery.

Otto had an accident in his kennel on the way to the Vet… Photo: Heather Rammer

He looks sad
Prayers for Pets
Oh my yes… The ears…
Heather Rammer
They always stick up
Prayers for Pets
Really? How unusual. Those big puppy dog eyes are amazing. But he looks deflated somehow
Heather Rammer
We had to wait in the car he had an accident in his kennel he was upset
Prayers for Pets
Ohhhhh, yes, very upsetting I imagine. From the front or the back or both?
Heather Rammer
Back
Prayers for Pets
Ughhh, no wonder he was upset. No fun for either of you!
What is the vet saying?
Heather Rammer
Worsening liver disease, now kidney issues. Inflammatory bowel worse. Probably needs scope
Prayers for Pets
What did they say they foresee by way of prognosis?


Heather Rammer
Hopefully we caught kidney early and we can stabilize it , liver will be waiting game we have couple foods to try
Prayers for Pets
I looked back to the picture I posted of him in March I don’t know if it was just that particular picture but he looks very optimistic I don’t see that in his face today.
Heather Rammer
I just need him to eat, the diet they want him to. His protein is really low
He gets like that when his tummy eats
Prayers for Pets
Is he not tolerating protein? Do they think he has protein loss?
We had a Yorkie that suffered with that condition.
Have you tried giving him digestive enzymes?
Heather Rammer
He is on liver meds x 2 Pepcid
He isn’t processes the proteins not sure if it’s the intestines or his liver waiting on bile acid test results
Prayers for Pets
Pepcid – not a favorite. Better than ppi’s. Ok re: bile acids
I will be waiting to hear what the result of that is. If you losing weight? I’m sure you’re keeping him hydrated. Have you got a bag of saline and syringes etc in case you need to do SUB Q’s? Flavorless Pedialyte?
Heather Rammer
We have fluids at home had iv here at vet
Prayers for Pets
Ok. Just had to say it even though I know you know it! Sometimes when you’re in the middle of it yourself, well… I know how it is. We don’t always follow the advice for ourselves that we know to give😕
I got to do some stuff I’ll be back. You know I’m praying for that boy and for you my friend🤗
Heather Rammer
Thank you

Prayers for Pets
Any further diarrhea or vomiting?
Heather Rammer
Nope no further diarrhea and he did eat a little bit of a ZD so I’m hoping it gets a little bit better
Prayers for Pets
ZD?
Heather Rammer
Yes
It’s the prescription dog food from the vet
Prayers for Pets
Ok good! Vomit at all?
Heather Rammer
No
Heather Rammer
He is on new antibiotic for possible infection on gallbladder, waiting for results on bile acid results to see if his liver is functioning at what level and further urine to assess kidney function.he will most likely need liver biopsy and upper gi scope to assess level of bowel disease
Prayers for Pets
Yes! Thank you Lord, may this continue! Please let me know if that changes before 8 am PST tomorrow. I will be praying for you and Otto through the night, and Victor and I will be praying for you guys before bed. 🤗💗🙏Caren
Heather Rammer
Thank you so much 🤗
Have a good and safe holiday weekend
Prayers for Pets
You too! Hold it in there Otto!
Heather Rammer

I’m working on the post and just noticed that the 1st thing you sent me was incomplete: Otto could use some prayers he is in * e ***with worsening liver and know kidney issues.

Did that “e” mean ER?????
Heather Rammer
Yes was in with liver and kidney [Issues]
Prayers for Pets
Wow, I knew he was in bad shape, but missed the meaning of “e”, I just skipped right past it, sorry.
Is he home now or hospital?

Important information

This probiotic is essential when a pet is taking broad spectrum antibiotics. It can be sprinkled on food, or open the capsule and pour the contents into your pet’s mouth. The taste is neutral. This probiotic (or one like it) is essential because it survives stomach acids.

Home trying to get him to eat waiting on test results to see if he needs liver biopsy and upper gi scope to assess his bowel disease
Prayers for Pets
I had also missed the part about abx for GB infection. That could go a long way to putting the brakes on. Is he on a good probiotic? One with dog probiotic with bacillus subtilis and bacillus coagulans? https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5645859/
Understanding the canine intestinal microbiota and its modification by pro‐, pre‐ and synbiotics – what is the evidence?
Interest in the composition of the intestinal microbiota and possibilities of its therapeutic modifications has soared over the last decade and more detailed knowledge specific to the canine microbiota at different mucosal sites including the gut is available. …
ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

Heather Rammer
No probiotics yet they are just doing antibiotics as a possible cause of some of the issues
Prayers for Pets
You have to have one of these bacteria or saccharomyces boulardii to remain in gut w/abx
If the abx are broad spectrum they’ll be working against his healthy microbiota
Heather Rammer
He is on flagly that helps to protect to stomach and help with the diarrhea
Prayers for Pets
Sorry to sound strident, but I only learned this late in life, and it’s huge!
Heather Rammer
Prayers for Pets
Oy, metronidazole is a killer. Please talk to the Vet about adding one or more of the probiotics above. I’m only trying to help, not cause consternation.
Heather Rammer
He has been on metro for quite a while every other day it’s the one thing that had definitely helped the IBD
Prayers for Pets
OK, good to know. Sometimes it really helps gut stuff, sometimes makes it worse.

Heather Rammer
Lulu was on it for probably 8 years so she did not have to have all the steroids for IBD
