Dealing With Pet Illness

One of the things about having pets is that eventually, they will become ill and grow old. Just like people.

Today, Amber and I took our cat Siren, age 18, to the vet as she has been losing weight and getting weak. She's been eating like a horse, yet she has become very thin.

Fortunately, Amber works at a veterinary clinic and knows the main doctor and has a lot of confidence in him.

After listening to our descriptions of Siren's symptoms, he drew blood and gave her fluids (as she was a little dehydrated) and took x-rays. The blood test results should be ready later today.

His initial thought are that it is either feline diabetes or a hyper-thyroid condition that older cats develop. Luckily, if it is either one of these, they are treatable.

I just hope we are able to nip this in time and Siren will be hale and hearty again.
