Update on THE CAT

We took Bella to the vet as she had been urinating inappropriately in the house. I suspected she might have had a UTI or crystals as that had been my experience. Upon examining her the vet suspected a hyper-thyroid. She noted that she had lost some muscle mass and she had a fast heartbeat with an extra gallop thrown in. We did blood and urine tests to check. The vet was right she did have a hyper-thyroid. Her urine came back fine, no infection and no crystals. All good things. This means that we don’t have to change her food.

To treat the hyper-thyroid we are going to go with medication twice a day and see how she does. She will go back for a re-check in 3 weeks. We have to watch for some side effects. Hopefully it all goes well.
