Millie continues to take his thyroid pills ( mostly, I found a couple on the floor). I took Polar Bear back to the low cost vet for the 4th time in 3 months. The first few times they wouldn’t do blood work because the vet I dealt with claimed his upper respiratory infection could lead to incorrect results. He continues to lose weight so I insisted on the blood work and this vet was more than happy to cooperate. Good thing he did because Polar Bear also has an over active thyroid. I find it an odd coincidence that my 2 white males around 10 years old both have the same problem and they are not related. He still has some sneezing so this vet gave me something to help suppress herpes virus instead of another antibiotic.
I also had Stinky get some bloodwork so she can get her teeth cleaned. I am happy to report that her blood work was perfect. I need to schedule her dantal now- we go to a VCA vet and they are having a special until the end of March for 20 % off dentals.
Prancie had her dental a couple weeks ago. I was nervous because she has a heart murmur and we opted not to do tthe ultra sound. Well, hubby opted not to, he figured we had one 2 years ago and it is probably the same problem. I am happy to say that went really well too and she didn’t even need an extraction.
In an ideal world I would get everyone dentals yearly or at least every other year. Currently, I do a few a year based on who needs it most. I hope everyone’s kitties are doing well.
