Vet results

I wasn't happy to be at the vet today but the results weren't as dire as I was fearing. She does think that in the early stages of kidney disease but my numbers weren't so bad that it caused a lot of concern. My white blood cell count was high so I'm on an antibiotic. They suspect that I may have a dental infection but they can't confirm it because of some of my gingivitis. So they are starting with the antibiotic and if that doesn't do it then I'll have to see a dental specialist. 

I was given a special Urgent Care food from Hills that I actually ate some of. We'll see how I feel about it tomorrow though. I also have an appetite stimulant that I'm supposed to take every 72 hours. It is a tiny pill but still offensive to have to take. 

Thanks for the purrs and well wishes. Keep em coming!

What a relief. And about that pill? It sure beats that pink bubblegum swill that vets sometimes force on us, right? In any case, we hope it helps get your intake up to speed and that you start feeling like your old self again soon!
