What A Wordy Wordless Wednesday...
Well, this is supposed to be Wordless/Mewless Wednesday...but there is lots of mews and words to miaow about.
Today, I, Minko went to the Vet. A new one. But I was still scared and made the towel in my carrier all wet...good thing meowmy had a spare with her, MOL!
OMC, what a tall dude he was...but friendly and amicable. I didn't hiss him, and he didn't say if I tried to give him a bitey...cause he poked and prodded me and then he had his vampire helpers stael some drops of my purrecious life fluid.
He even checked my blood pressure! OMC. It was normal he said. Good fur me!
A few hours later , meowmy got the labwork results. All normal, OMC! Vet-man said I scored an A!
But he still could see that I was not being a regular silly meezer like I am supposed to be, and my furs are not shiny, nor do I weigh furry much...though...its a wee bit more than when I saw the lady vet back in November.
His thoughts about Me, Minko are that its not pancreatitis as my main trouble, (though that could be secondary), but Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Oh-oh. (Based on age, fur condition, weight loss, lethargy, anorexia, vomiting, and diarrhea.)
So I got a shot of steroids, some B12, and pills of predisolone to take starting in a few days.
And call them in a week to let them know how I am doing...or sooner if necessary.
Meowmy seemed happier with this vet-man, he listened and chatted and did not try to make meowmy feel like she didn't know anything, even if she is not a vet. He did not tell her it was bad to feed me by spoon, like the other lady-vet had don...sheesh. If meowmy didn't purrsist at making sure I eat, I would not be here to tell you my mews on this Wordless Wednesday.
Its a huge practice with 9 DVM's and seemingly a gazillion ancillary staff of techs and other helpers.
And while I had sung lots of arias (meezer ballads are quite soulful...),and other songs of sad purrsuasions, I was silent all the way home. MOL!
I so far have not upchucked, and no stinky tootsies either, which is what happens when I have the runs...
Vet-man didn't make any purrticular suggestion for a purrscription noms, but he said, just to feed me a good quality noms.
Does anyone have any suggestions about canned noms (pate only is what I will eat), that would have limited ingredients and no junk?
Any other suggestions like fur supplements, etc?
Well, Pipo did not hiss me when I returned, we had a mutual grooming session instead, to get the fureign stinks off of me, MOL!!
