Mom, am I not the fairest in the land (of Whiskeratti) ? Why can't I have this day?.... Fine, I'll let you and Toby have it. But I want special treatment next week!
Thank you, Leia, you are a generous soul.
So, back to the vet today, for Toby's arthritis shot. I tried the Medicam drops but since I can't actually see how many drops I'm putting in, and that is critical, it just wasn't working. And I think he was hurting a fair amount.
While there, we discovered that he's also... hyperthyroid. Of course. Why wasn't that included in the blood work from TWO WEEKS AGO??? I assumed it was, but no. And he's lost weight since that visit too. Anyway, I now have a diagnosis for the weight loss and pills for it.
Recheck in four weeks for this. Recheck in 6 more weeks for the heart.
These visits are turning my sweet orange into a monster. While there, he growls and hisses and pants.
He's tired of being poked and prodded and being forced into the PTU/car rides.
If you will, please purray for us - endurance, and strength to get through all that we must do.
Happy Caturday to all.
