My Vet Visit

I went to the V.E.T. again yesterday. I'm really getting sick of that place! Even though I didn't tell you I was there last Saturday too. That is 3 Saturdays in a row.

The HORROR!

Last week, they were thinking about doing an xray because I still had blood in my urine after being on the antibiotic for a week. Mom and the doc decided to put me on the medication for another week. Well, that worked! When I went yesterday, my urine had no blood in it and no other signs of infection! The doc did say that it was a bit diluted and that could still be a sign of Cushings.
They also retested my liver enzymes and they were better than 2 weeks ago but still too high. So, it was decided to wait a couple weeks and test again since it has improved. I have another appointment in 2 weeks and they will check my thyroid at that time.

Do I have to go?

A few of you asked if I had gotten dark spots on my skin and yes, I have. Mom thought it was just age spots and didn't know that was a sign of low thyroid. You guys are so much smarter than I knew!
Unfortunately, we don't really have any answers yet but Mom and Dad are confident that we will get there.


 We will be away from blogging for a couple of weeks but might be able to check in occasionally. We have family coming to town and will be spending time with them.
Try not to miss me too much!

My poor girl... having to endure such frequent trips to the VET. You're a brave girl and I'm glad to hear the medication is working. Be well, my Twix and you're in our thoughts always... hope to hear from you on your coming birthday ;)

Licks, hero

Lola said...

Well, we will miss you a lot, but as long as your away from the blog for a happy reason, I guess we'll have to stand it. Please, please, please keep us informed of any impawtant health updates, though. If we know you'll do that we'll manage, Well, except Hero. He'll be distraught until you're back, I bet.

Feel good, be all healthy.

Licks, Lola

We will miss you, Twix; but sometimes you just have to do other things like be a hostess.

That VET thing does sound horrid. Paws crossed that it'll clear up. Maybe you should just put more of your nose under the blanket, so they can't find you.

Twix, you are much braver than I am to be going to the V.E.T.S. that many times!!

Are you taking any medication to bring down your liver enzymes? When mine were high, I had to take a pill every day for 4 weeks and that helped out a lot! Butt, I can't remember the name of the medication right now :(

We will keep our paws crossed that everything turns out okie dokie for you! We hope you have lots of fun with your visiting guests and we will be thinking of you, especially on your birthday which is right after mine!!

I know just how you feel, I had an infection too, mine was a stone, so I had some surgery to make it better. Tonight I go see the vet again to check my blood and see if I need to keep taking my liver pills. I feel great now, I hope your vet makes you feel great too.
