Finally, some good news about Ellie, my Siamese. She has been having all sorts of health problems, which include vomiting several times a week, blood in her urine, losing weight, and possible kidney problems.
The past two months, her BUN (blood urea nitrogen) values kept going higher and higher — this is not good. For a month now she has been on prescription food to help with her kidney function. This food has reduced protein, phosphorus, and sodium. And here’s the good part: her BUN number went from 90 to 52 ! Do I hear a woot woot!. It is still too high, but it is falling so there is positive progress.
Her weight is still too low; a petite 5 lbs. 9 ozs. We are still working on that. She has not been vomiting since we started on this new canned kidney health food. I just need to get her to eat more.
Here’s hoping for continued progress!!
