|BiBi at the Vets on Saturday|
Nana's Bibi went to the Emergency Vet Saturday... Anal gland had ruptured. She got a Convenia shot and is taking pain meds while the gland heals... $252.00. Thank goodness hubby sent birthday money (Birthday is tomorrow) - helped about half of cost. No money to take her for followup to Vets... Thank goodness convenia shot and pain meds seem to be working!
|A Happy Ellie Selfie|
Getting some calls about adopting Ellie May, but Molly and Ellie would be better together.
And to make matters more complex, Happy Ellie is showing signs of a sensitive stomach: she bristles after eating and tightens her abdomen. She even had a mild reaction to having Revolution drops back in December... she almost threw up. Will start her and Molly on a Corn-free food, but I don't know of a dry kitten corn free food... so will have to use an adult food mixed with corn free canned kitten food, like Iams.
Hope a change of diet is all she needs, but she will also needs a cbc - blood work to check for signs of inflammation before she gets spayed. Will be calling our vet in the morning to find out the price for that... He does offer discounts. His spay prices are very high because he uses same monitoring equipment used for humans.
Yet Ellie May needs to be monitored more closely due to her odd reactions to chemicals. The cheapest place I would consider (Cat Hospital of Wichita) costs 80.00, not counting her shots, office visit, etc.
Ellie is one of five cats I am caring for right now that need spayed. The other four are Ellie's mom Molly, Angel (a cat pulled from same home as Molly and her kittens), Annie May and Lulu. Annie May and Lulu had upper respiratories as kittens and should be more monitored during the spay process... which leaves out using the low cost clinics who do not use monitoring equipment... I keep trying to save up money for spaying... and then another emergency, either kitty or human related has occured and uses up the funds saved....( and I'm still waiting to get new glasses after my retinal reattachment surgery on my left eye from two years ago.) All my boys are neutered....
If you haven't checked this furry mewz yet....Trucker is a furry miracle!
Wonderful Trucker survived being thrown from a car... His story just keeps me inspurred....He knows he's a miracle too! Just look in those eyes. More Mewz Later, Katie.
