Happy Tuesday everyone! Today is medical day and I want to let you know something I just learned last week that is actually very fitting for Christmas.
I brought Polar Bear to the low cost clinic last week. He is always a little snuffy and I was told it was Feline Herpes and would always be in his system. He seemed more congested than usual and his eyes very runny too so I figured he needed a antibiotic which he did get ( shot form, I could never pill this wild guy). During the exam, he got very scared and fought the vet and tech off from trying to restrain him. We had to give up trying to get blood work until after the holidays. He got himself so upset that he could barely breath and had to keep his mouth wide open trying to get air.
The vet put a drop of myrrh on his nose and that really seemed to help. I like that this vet integrates things like that with regular medicine. As many of you know, the 3 Kings brought the baby Jesus gold, frankincense and myrrh. I decided to look up the uses for pets and this is the best info. that I found: http://www.vetinheights.com/essential-oils-for-dog-and-cat-owners-part-2/. Apparently, it is a good anti-inflammatory and according to this, some frankincense would have been good to help him breath too. Of couse, some gold would have come in handy to pay the bill 🙂
He seems much better as the antibiotic has kicked in. He is also eating better now that he can probably smell the food. Have a great day everyone! I need to start cleaning for guests tomorrow. I really need to get a sign that says not resonsible forblack clothes worn in this house.
