Wellness update! . .
🐱Luella is doing great. Eating, drinking, and pottying perfectly! No more liquid 💩 for this princess.
Appetite is great. She is no longer on metronidazole, cerenia, or mirtazapine!
She is not lethargic, and back to playing and snuggling.
Lulu is due for another blood panel and cbc in the next few weeks. We need to confirm that her T4 and liver values have normalized. Her UTI looks to be resolved. I think she still needs to put on a pound or two. 🍗🍔
I'm so happy my little shadow is back! . .
🐱Went to the vet Saturday.
Murdoc gain .5lbs! He is no longer lethargic. His appetite is good, but he is still on Mirtazipine. No longer vomiting, but he is still on Cerenia. (Tried no cerenia for two days - that was a mistake. 🤮)
His thyroid level (T4) has doubled since his last panel. This is not good news. He is already on a high dose of methimazole, but seems to not be digesting it well enough. We are trying a transdermal version now. (Unfortunately more expensive than the liquid.)
Liver values are elevated. This is likely because of his thyroid.
His 💩 is still not solid, but much better than it was a month ago!
He is continuing with his prescription food. Eats mostly on his own. Supplemental feeding via the neck tube.
- slowly try to wean him off mirtazapine and cerenia. Hopefully his appetite stays great and he doesn't vomit.
- another full panel will be run in 10 days. We'll know then if he needs more agressive treatment for his thyroid.
- reassess continued need for esophogostomy tube
- reassess continued need for a few of the other medicines he is on.
I think that's all. If I forgot anything I'll update in thd comments. 🙃. .
