I've been in and out of our yucky vet's office for a couple of months now. I've had an abdominal ultrasound done, x-rays, bloodwork, and urine tests. Our vet also looked closely at my teeth and gums. The results so far are that I have one bladder stone the size of about half of a human pinky fingernail, and my calcium level is a bit high.
On Wednesday, December 27th, I'll be undergoing surgery to have the bladder stone removed. Mom jokingly asked our vet if she could bring the stone home as a souvenir but it's going to be sent out to a lab to have it's make-up examined. But, our vet promised to show the bladder stone to my Mom and take a picture of it before she sends it off. We just switched our dry food to Royal Canin Urinary SO and we all love it. No picky eaters here!
The good news is that through all of this I am eating and drinking normally and have been enjoying watered-down food and my new favorite--pumpkin, along with green bean juice. The bad news that horrifies my Mom is that I only weigh 8lbs, so we really need to monitor and fix this. But, I purr, purr, purr, and purr, and continue my grooming duties on myself and my siblings.
I'll post an update after my surgery.
