Today, Luna was put to sleep. She had aggressive cancer and her lungs were 70% full of fluid. The vet took some fluid out but her breathing started to get rapid again. The cells in her fluid were mutated. She was in a lot of distress and there were not much options for her, it would only helped her for a few months if lucky but other than that..there was no cure and she would have only gotten worse.
She will have a private cremation..
R.I.P, Luna. I love you..

Haven't been here for the longest time.
Remember Luna's metacam scare? Well, Luna's kidneys are perfectly fine.
Luna did become very ill back in January, she stopped eating and just slept. She kept acting like her stomach hurt and would make odd mewing sounds. The vet wanted to do an ultrasound but knew it would be very expensive. He suspected IBS or pancreatitis. He said it didn't matter which one she had, it would still be treated the same. He put her on some pain meds and gave her steroids (medrol).
Since then, she is perfectly back to normal..if not better. The vet wanted to change her food (she has been on the Nutro brand food). He wanted to go with Nature's Variety or any natural food that was duck or rabbit. She hated those foods and would not eat it. Nutro just came out with a duck version and she loves it. I dunno why she loves Nutro so much. He wanted a better protein source for her.
The vet is weening her off the meds slowly and we hope she won't need anymore later down the road.

Luna has been doing a lot better to the point where she did not need tramadol and she was still eating well. She gets more and more playful each day and has lots of energy.
Next week she will be going in for her dental work. Hopefully she will feel 1000 times better once her teeth are taken care of.
