Hi everyone, this will be a super short diary. I just wanted to add to my last diary about the study that's being done at UC Davis for IBD/lymphoma kitties. Even if you are a perfectly healthy kitty or have a completely different health condition, PAWLEASE give your vet the information so they can see if they have other cases that could apply! This is so furry important! And unfortunately there are MANY MANY cases of these diseases around. So please look at this page on our site again and pass the link and info onto your vet! IBD Studies/Trials
My goodness, we can give share this with our vet...mom practically has her on speed dial and sees her every few days, it seems. We will pass it along.
Hurrayyy! Thank you so much Mrs. Murphy. MOL, that's funny cause that's how my mom was with Alex and her vet. We want so badly for this study to work and honestly, if it works for IBD/lymphoma, they would most likely start looking for other markers in the blood to test for other diseases so they don't have to do invasive surgeries. That would be so pawsome!
Thats so kewl that you are a part of this Lacey!!!
Thanks Harrison. It all happened pretty serendipitously! WOW that word tied up my tongue, MOL. It all started with my mom searching and searching and searching for any universities and vets doing research on feline breast cancer for Queen Tallulah's mommy. (we have some info on that coming up as well tomorrow or Friday).
Then mom got to talking with this docfur and he looked at mom's website and they talked and talked and talked. Then it snowballed from there. Of course we'd be thrilled to be mentioned in his medical paper when this study is done! I can't even tell you how much that would please us. But what would REALLY please us like we were saying is to stop having to open kitties up to find out what's going on in there! No more trauma for the kitty, the parent, the wallet, all of it! That's IF it works. But look at the news lately! Medical advances are happening so fast in everything!
Harrison we're so sorry your mommy is having a rough time. Tell her my mommy has had a horrible couple of days dealing with something else too. Health insurance stuff. She's fighting mad right now but at the same time feels so beaten down. Life is just so furry hard for everyone these days!
We shall take this to our vet...
And purrs & hugs to your own mom right now...do you need us to hiss fur you? That insurance junk is such a pain...
YES PLEASE!!! HISS FURRY FURRY LOUD AND HARD!
PURRRRRFECT! I may need to ask you to do that again tomorrow!
OK...But meowmy will be at work...so we will have to do it way early or way later than right now...
We passed it on to Dr. Lynne! Luv, Tink
Probably way later guys and we'll be sure and let you know but I guarantee we will need more hisses! YAAYYYY Tink! Thank you!
I'll pass it on. And I'll HISS at that insurance stuff for you!
