Furriends, I am just not happy today. My morning was very traumatic. I can't even talk about it, so I'm turning this over to my Mom.
The Mom: Toby went in for a check up today. Last year he went to a different vet who said he had pancreatitis, which of course was very upsetting. This year's vet is a much better diagnostician; she compared this morning's bloodwork to last year's. Toby does not and has never had pancreatitis. He does have a very sensitive stomach, which he's always had. The previous elevated levels were due to his stress over the stray kittens we were fostering.
However, he gained almost four pounds from last year. I was shocked to hear that. I thought we were doing so well on the Evo, and both cats did lose weight. Which he obviously gained back, and then some. He's now 22.5 pounds. The vet is researching the best option for both weight loss and sensitive tummies.
But, I'm just so very grateful that he doesn't have a terrible illness!!! Toby did have a tough visit; he was so scared. He's just a cat who is sensitive all over.
