Fleurp went back to the vet on Monday. Her blood work showed marked improvement but she still has a way to go. One of the results was out of the "normal" range and Dr. R didn't mention it when going over it so I asked and he said that it meant that her blood was 'fluffy' which was quite funny since Fleurp has always been "fluffy" herself and being on pred she became extra fluffy gaining a pound and a half
I'm not a huge fan of that idea* as being on steroids can cause diabetes in cats. He mentioned that maybe not as it was a year and a half since the last time we went through this. I tried to do some reading on whole health support for anemia, and there was talk of injectible B12 being helpful. I so need to do more reading to see what else might help. I have another appointment on the 7th for another recheck. *but since anemia can actually be fatal, if it is give pred or face life threatening anemia, I'll give it and deal with diabetes when or if it comes.
I still think Fleurp isn't feeling like her old self. She has her moments when she is feeling better and comes into the bedroom seeking attention. It just kills me to see her laying on the floor in the kitchen after coming out of the bedroom having the entire bed covered with kitties except her.
|I may be fluffy, but it is all part of my charm|
