099/366: Medicine

When we had our vetinary adventure back on Saturday, they drew blood for some tests. These showed that Emmy's kidney function is somewhat impaired, leading to yet more tests, and as of last night an extensive regimen of new stuff:

Emmy's new medication. Emmy's new medication.

That's some new kidney-friendly food (in both dry and canned varieties), a drug for her kidneys, an antibiotic in case she has a bladder infection (something she's been prone to; those test results are yet to come back), and a bunch of different vitamins. This on top of the antacid pills we were told to start giving her a couple days ago.

What a drag it is getting old...

Unfortunately, one of these things doesn't agree with her, as her stomach is upset this morning. So it looks like we have yet another trip over to Sunnyside in our future...

My sympathies. I have an older cat with multiple issues, but he's hanging in well thanks to a vet who's on it. Getting old's certainly not for the faint hearted.

Poor Emmy! Sending best wishes for a quick recovery for the queen. Hope that she finds renewed health and happiness (and a few complaisant squirrels) very soon.
