Last weekend, the long holiday weekend, was just no fun at all. The Mom was the first to notice that I was having a problem going to the litter box. Well, it became obvious pretty quickly that I had a problem as there was some blood in my pee. I kept going to the litter box about every 5-10 minutes. So, on Friday off to the Vet I went. I was very good during the car ride and I didn’t complain at all like some brother of mine does.
I was also good at the vet and got an antibiotic shot to help me with my UTI. On Saturday I seemed to be a little bit better during the day, but later that night things got a little bit worse. Then, Sunday morning, things were not good at all. So, Dad packed me up and off we went to the Animal Emergency Clinic of Greenville.
I know, unfortunately, that lots of you have had to go to an Emergency Clinic too, and we all know that they are no fun and are even scarier than the Vet place. When we first got there we thought it might be quick since there wasn’t anyone else there. They took me immediately to the back since I was panting and seemed to be having some respiratory issues too.
Then things changes, the waiting room filled up with several real woofie emergencies, which of course they had to handle quickly. The staff took good care of me and made sure I was comfortable. I got to see Dr. Elliott, whom I had seen before, and he took lots of time with me when it was finally my turn. I had some inflammation that was causing me some pain and it made me think I had to pee all the time. They took some x-rays which showed no blockages or stones, hooray! I came home after about four hours with some pain meds and instructions to take a small dose of prednisone to help me with my asthma flare up.
I do want to show you one of the main reasons I’m doing better, because I had great nursing help!
Nurse Sascha hardly every left my side. She was with me everywhere I went, even all the trips to the litter box. She laid by my side constantly and took the best care of me ever. Thanks Sister Sascha, I love you too!
It was a long Sunday morning, but since I’m feeling much better now, I think it was well worth it. I just don’t care to have any repeat performances anytime soon!
That’s it for me today, so I’m off to nap. Have a wonderful weekend everyone and I’ll see you in Blogville! Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
