Ellie, my petite Siamese, still has blood in her urine. Thus, she had an a appointment with Dr. Sherry today. She pleaded with me to not let Dr. Sherry do those bad things to her.
Dr. Sherry does not really do bad things, but Ellie does not like having a urine sample taken. She (Ellie) let out a typical Siamese yowl while her bladder was being prodded and poked.
Ellie was taken away for a few minutes for a quick blood test. When she came back, she decided to practice her ostrich pose. You know the one–if I can’t see you, then you aren’t there.
Not the best news. Ellie’s BUN (blood urea nitrogen) has gone up again. So Ellie got an antibiotic shot, some sub-cutaneous fluids, and a prescription for special food for kitties with kidney problems.
When we got back home, Ellie got right back into her standard routine. Yup, snuggling on my lap.
We’ll see if she will eat this new food. Trying to have separate food for three cats is an exercise in creative management. Since Ellie is usually on my lap, I decided to feed her on my lap.
Although this is the first feeding, she is gobbling the food down. Hope this helps.
