Yesterday I went to the vet for a wellness exam and today we got back the blood work results. The good news is the blood work came back great and doesn't show any indication of any problems. The bad news is you can clearly see there is an issue so now we still need to figure it out. The biggest problem right now is weight loss. I lost 2 pounds and am down to only 13 pounds now. Mom says I am very skinny. With the blood work coming back normal it is most likely one or two things. First is that I am not getting the nutrients from my new dog food and will have to go back to my old kibble. Mom switched me 6 months ago to dehydrated food. First was The Honest Kitchen but I wasn't fond of it so she got Grandma Lucy's last time. I like it a little more but the weight still comes off. If the problem is the food, I am in OK shape and going back to kibble will help me to gain weight back. If it isn't the food, the vet worries there is a possibility of cancer since blood work wouldn't show it. We don't want to think about that possibility just yet and hope it is just the food.
Secondly, I have a UTI. I am now on antibiotics so that should take care of that problem. I go back in to see the vet two weeks from now to see how it worked. It will also be a great time to see if I picked up a little weight with the diet change.
Lastly my mobility issues are getting worse and probably a spinal issue. I can still get around but have aches and pains. It is not an issue that can be corrected so it is a problem we have to deal with and one I have been.
So as long as I can pick up some weight, I will be in fair shape and that is our goal.
That is very good news my friend. Not the cancer or losing weight or the UTI,but is that your blood work was all normal. I'm getting up there in years too, in fact momma thinks I'm losing my hearing. Anyway we hope everything comes back good and that you eat enough to gain weight.
Happy Easter to your whole family.
Sending you POTP!
Sending you lots a POP and hugs. You're in my prayers precious.
Glad to hear the bloodwork results were all good! Now you just need to put on some weight & we hope going back to the old kibble will do just that. The meds will clear up your UTI and we will be waiting to hear how much you gain when you go back, so eat up cutie!
Wishing you & your family a wonderful & Happy Easter!
