Something is wrong with my boy, I woke up in the middle of the night to a dog screaming, he attacked Gracie I had to pull him off her. Not to worry Gracie is fine, unharmed maybe a little sore. I gave him a mega dose of bupherine, it took two hours to help him relax. Walter is in pain, but not sure from what.
It's been 15 months since he attacked me, he has been on a regime of meds to help him poop, Keep pancreatitis at bay and he is already on a lot of pain meds.
I just was at the vet, I left Walter where he had blood tests those results will be back in the morning, he has lost some weight since June so thyroid will be checked, he has a couple of bad teeth, I requested that they do an xray of his back because Walt is trouble jumping up. Walter has also licked himself along his spine, his fur is sparce there now.
My vet is not sure what made Walter snap, he might have had a seizure.
Walter does have a past of coming unhinged when in pain, Walt also has a new heart murmur so if everything else is okay Walt will have a dental.

Walter is almost 11 and is a train wreck health wise, has megacolon, boughts of pancreatitis, he is in chronic pain but I thought that was all under control things have been so nice, Walter was happy even joining me in bed with the dogs.
Please think good thoughts for my big ole boo Walter, please let be a bad tooth.

Oh poor guy. Licking his back sounds not good. I wonder if he has a pinched nerve or something, and it's making his back feel weird and tingly.

I am so sorry - he has been well for so long I'd hoped these troubles were behind you. I hope it is something easily sorted and he can get back to his happy, relaxed life.

Got off the vet just now, they pulled 5 teeth, and x rated his whole spine, the xrays will be sent off to a radiologist to be read but there is one spot in his neck that looks suspicious. So we wait and see.

I just finished with my vet, he went over the x-rays with me, he thinks Walter might have compressed discs in his neck hard to tell without an MRI, radiologist still needs to review them so another day or so. Walter also has some arthritis in his hips.
So here's hoping that my boy will feel better, Walter has been given pain meds and is coming home with more in pill form.
Poor Walter

Well hey now I have Walter home, I gave him a choice of soaked kibble or just plain dry
he ate the dry
So Walt now has antibiotics and pain meds, and is wandering around surveying his kingdom

Glad he's home. What's the treatment plan for compressed discs?

Well, most likely pain management, laser therapy maybe even acupuncture.
Walt is 11 this year so an elder statesman, I know there will be no magic cures, he has a lot of health issues. I just want him comfortable.
Though his biting days are over according to my vet, my vet removed Walters upper canines and premolars, I laughed I know determined cat in pain will draw blood even I'd they only have two teeth.
Right now, Wslter is bright, and so like his happier self as for the future we will see.
