A Bad Night

This morning we got up after the usual restless night to find Tali covered in diarrhea. Neither of us had slept well but heard no alarm call from her or Asha (she sometimes lets us know) She hasn't been in a mess like this for months and I could have cried for her and for me. I'm gutted, until the last 10 days or so she's been doing so well but now it looks like it''s back with a huge bang! I've bathed her and have made a vet appointment for this morning. What concerns me is the diarrhea is very dark, almost black and that's not a good sign. I do hope the vet will consider putting her on metronidazole on a semi permanent basis now as I feel I have done all I can to manage this with diet and supplements. Who cares if it has long term side affects .. Tali is old and I'm looking at now, today and tomorrow, quality of life is paramount!
