Back from the vet's

That wasn't much fun. My titer from last year showed that my antibodies for distemper were low, so I had to get a booster. The vet vampires took some new blood this time. Don't know the results yet. The vet will call with those on Monday.

The good news is that I hadn't lost as much weight as Mom thought -- only an ounce (our digital scale must be off). So maybe the thyroid is OK. The vet also said my heart sounded good -- he couldn't hear the murmur the other vet heard last year -- but he ordered the cardiomyopathy test anyway, because the lab was giving it away free if other bloodwork was being done. (Usually it's $100.)

And if the blood tests come back OK, I need to get my teeth cleaned. Darn. that will mean another trip to the vet.

Yeah, like Ruffy said, the vampires just won't give up, will they?

That's cool that your pawrents do titers - Mom has been learning more about those and will probably titer my sisfur, although I think I'm done with vacs anyway. Purrs for good results from the blood test.

Holy moly!!! That's a bargain to get that heart test buddy so I think it's good to have it. I agree, the titer is great! Everyone should have that done. Glad you didn't lose a lot of weight!

Mom says she would love to antibody test done too. Especially sense Gris has such bad reactions to the vaccines in the first place.

It sounds like your doing good. Which is a good thing. And Finn is right, the free heart test is one heck of a deal!
