Thoughtful Thursday


Tommy: Woofs Everyone. Tommy reporting after yesterday's vet visit. It took all morning. This is because our vet has all the equipment in-house and we decided to wait for the results of the blood tests.

Let's start with me shall we? Over all, I am in great shape, apparently. But, I do have slightly elevate cholesterol levels and so #1 needs to adjust my diet a little. It's not going to be a drastic adjustment and I should continue  to be a happy boy.



Things are a little more complicated where our little Genji is concerned. His amylase levels remain elevated, although not as bad as they were before. He was so stressed when he arrived that his heart was going BOOM BOOM, so Dr. C waited until later, when he had relaxed quite a bit to listen to it again, and it was OK, except that there is a suggestion of a tiny murmur. His urea levels, which had been perfect, have risen a bit, probably because he has been eating such a high protein diet. So, the little guy remains fragile and needs to be closely watched. Dr. C is having a think about what the best options would be for him, food-wise, to balance the various issues.

But, in case, you were thinking that Da Genj is sickly or anything, we want to share with you a little video that #1 took after we got home form the vet's yesterday:

Genji is a happy boy and we will all make sure he stays a happy boy!

I'm glad you guys have a vet who works so hard with #1 at figuring out what is best for you! Yep, Genji looks like quite a lively guy - I hope he and you find a good balance with your diets, Tommy!

Gengi looks like he's having fun! Hope you both do well with your new diets/routines and your next tests come back great!

We can see that Genji is a pretty happy and active kitty.
Hopefully, diet can help both him and Tommy :)

Glad to hear you're doing well , darling Tommy.
Little Genji is the dearest, happiest boy! We hope that backing off on a bit of the protein will put things right for him.
Just like our beans, a little diet modification can work wonders. Kisses and hugs from us to you.

Overall not a bad report. That video was fun!

We're glad to hear the vet reports were good. We will keep our paws crossed for little Genji that his "numbers" get more back to normal. It sure looks like he isn't suffering at all with all that play in his action video.

Genji was having such fun with his toy on the string. We bet he was much happier when he got home from the v-e-t place!

Coucou mon cousin,
Tu as l'air en pleine forme.
Ce n'est pas facile de sortir d'une pancréatite. Il faut du temps. Et toi d'ailleurs tu ne t'en sors pas mal du tout. Iounnou après elle était insuffisante rénale et diabétique. Ca fait beaucoup.
Mes vetos aussi elles font les analyses sur place, et ça prend très peu de temps. D'ailleurs la mienne préférée elle est endocrino. C'était bien pour Iounnou.
Ca ne doit pas être simple chez toi avec des menus différents pour chacun.
Prends bien soin de toi.

Overall, the tests came out fairly good. The part that is hard is... how do you put more weight on Genji and not over do it with protein? He looks great and full of energy! That is awesome! Don't worry, Tommy. High cholesterol runs in the family! My diet is perfectly engineered and my cholesterol still runs on the high side. No worries, guys. Have fun and enjoy the day!

We're glad you have such a good vet. Your tests are pretty good ! Does it mean that you're not allowed to eat pizza anymore, Tommy ? Purrs

It must be wonderful to have a vet who takes such good care of all of you. We hope he can find a way to help Genji battle those little issues so he can have a better report. We bet #1 will have Tommy's cholesterol levels in perfect order too.

Go Genji! Derby was active all the way up to the end. Mum was super surprized when they gave her his kidney test results. Super sky high! Mum found out the vets who took over the practice now can to tests in the office and don't send them out. So faster results!
