|She really didn't want to smile!|
They checked his weight and the vet did his exam. He started talking about how they see Thyroid problems in older cats, and then he started talking about doing blood tests to check his levels and to test for other possibilities. I don't think I heard a thing after he said blood tests. My mind just started racing...blood tests, blood tests, BLOOD TESTS!!!!! Tears just started streaming out of my eyes- I felt a little sorry for my vet. He had no idea about Ella or the myriad of blood tests we have gone through in the past 2 months. I apologized and explained quickly that even though I love my cat, that wasn't the only reason behind my tears. Poor guy. He just handed me a box of Kleenex.
They ran the blood tests and Cole does have Hyperthyroidism. So now he needs medication 2 x a day. So, I am putting them on the same schedule. Maybe it will be good for Ella to see that she isn't the only one that has to take medicine- or maybe she will learn some good maneuvers on how to escape when its med time.
|Cole, he didn't want to smile either.|
