The topic: Back from the vet’s


Bobby and Sagwa both are in the beginning stages of renal failure (kidneys). Not to a point where they need fluids, though.

Sagwa also has thyroid problems. He had lost three pounds since his last visit. That thing on his butt? Not anal sac, vet said it was in the wrong place. They took Sagwa into the back and shaved the area and cleaned it off. The vet called me back to look at the wound. It's frikking huge. Easily an inch and a half in diameter. So, Sagwa got a covenia shot (heavy duty antibiotic) and we're supposed to clean it off every day with a warm saline bath.

He's also on methimazole for the thyroid problems. He'll need a recheck next month. Since his kidneys aren't shot, he also got pain meds for the butt problem.

Bobby was a little anemic and has some sort of infection going on, so he's on antibiotics for a week and he'll get a recheck. If his values are better, we'll schedule him for a dental.

We were there for over an hour. All of those tests they ran took time.

The only scary thing is the Sagwa wound. If what we do now doesn't help, the vet advised a biopsy to make sure it's not cancer.

So, Opie is still on his liver med for a few more days, Pancho gets prednisolone every other day (in the weaning stages), Rocky gets his meds (five days now! he's taken them for five days without a fight!), Bobby and Sagwa.

Who said you can't have a full life without children?
