Mr Buttons had been anorexic and throwing up anything, even water, for 2 days prior to New Years Eve and Dad decided to take him to the vet. He sang but calmed down when Dad gave him a finger to rub while they waited. Dad was really worried that he had a blockage of some kind. The nice vet did labs and sent him home with a bag of fluids that Dad will give him SQ. Dad has done this before and is very comfortable caring for all of us.
The vet called an hour later and it seems our little brother has Kidney Disease. His Bun and Creat are very high and so is his Phosphate level. Dad will be picking up a binder for that on Tuesday as the vet is closed today. They also started him on Mirtazapine for his appetite.
Mr Buttons has been eating a little of dry but only with treats mixed in. Dad does not mind holding him on his lap to nom while Buddy is having his dry noms. Now there are two kitties he has to monitor intake on but Buddy has been eating like a champ since he started his Thyroid medication.
We are all stressed over this. Mr Buttons has been sitting in the bathtub. Dad says a vent goes right underneath and it warms the bottom up.
|I am not feeling well but hopefully Dad will set me right.|
I would love some Purrs and Prayers from my Friends!
Thanks and Happy Mew Year
We hope the Mew Year will give us a break.
