Whee I am a Diary of the Day Pick!
Thanks to my good furend Buddie for letting me know. I was just getting up and I heard his Angel Wings fly by with the news. He is one cool Angel Kitty.
Now on to the latest with FIV:
We regret that Big Bob went over the Bridge on Monday. Bob had FIV and was 14 years old. Please stop by to support his family. We really loved Bob.
Now my FIV news. Many know that I have been battling an eye infection since I was a kit. Pops had given me medication and eye drops many times but it never cleared up.
Pops would wait a month or so between trips to the vet and this was, oh, let's see, I think it was the 6th. I sang the whole way there. Mi-Mi-Mi, oops, sorry, I get sidetracked sometimes, anyhow, we saw the new vet Dr Jack. He was the guy who did the family a few months ago. A very nice guy. Efficient and knew his stuff when Pops gave him the dope on our families peccadillo's.
He checked my eye. Looked at my gums and noted the gingivitis. Something else I have had since a kit. Well he sat down with a special book on medications. He went out and brought in some ointment. I had that before. Pops held me while Dr Jack put it in my eye and, and it was fine.
This new ointment just kind of melted into my eye and did not have that goopy action. Nice.
We got home and Pops right away put me on his lap and gave my liquid Clindamycin. Again, not bad. A bit more than usual and I finished it up last week. It was a big dose. 1ml twice a day and the bottle was empty in about 6 days. We are finishing up my ointment tonight. My eye looks very good. My gums look better. Much better.
Now do not feel bad for me as Pops gives me CHICKEN! Every dose I run up, Pops puts me on his lap, medicine in, the CHICKEN! Yes!
Now Pops will give a little to any other cat who may stop by to watch but I get the most.
So I will keep you informed of my medical progress.
Love you all
Mr B with FIV
