|Jakie with her feeding tube|
Back in 2006 Jakie developed hepatic lipidemia. Lipidosis. Something like that. She stopped eating and drinking and we finally had to resort to a feeding tube to get her to eat again. Not too long after the feeding tube was removed, she went right back to her full figured self again and all was well.
|Yesterday after being|
manhandled by the vet.
Took her to the vet yesterday, Jakie weighed 11 lbs last time she was there, now she is only 6 lbs. I am such a BAD fur-mommy!!! Got the results of her blood tests today, turns out she too has a thyroid disorder. Actually pretty common in older cats. Sheesh. And actually, that's the good news because I was worried it was diabetes which is much more complicated to treat in a cat.
The doc is calling in a prescription for Jake, I gave her one of Riley's pills tonight and will pick up her script tomorrow. Hopefully she will gain some weight and be her old Jakie self again, and just maybe I will start paying closer attention to my kitties. BAD FUR-MOMMY!!!
