Some thoughts from a kitty's perspective

Vet says I am good. She cannot even hear any heart murmur or anything sounding funny! She says the atenolol is working very well for me. I am a nice slim 12 pounds. She noticed that I am still showing a tender spot on my spine, (I did 6 months ago too) that she says is prob arthritis, but I am on Cosequin, and I certainly bounce around with no problems, so she said unless I seem to be having issues, I don't need any other medicine. I am not showing any crystals in my urine, but the PH is creeping up again- it is at 7.2 already, which proves that just eating grain free wet food is not enough in my case. Some kitties just have the problem with PH - soooo I gotta go back to the rx food. Momma asked her about meds for it, and vet does not like to use anything because it can cause more issues with other organs & kidney issues. Mom is not thrilled with that food, but for now I will have to eat some of that food, cause momma does not want to see me go through all that pain again (not to mention the $1000+ bill that came with it). I got my rabies shot, and mom put the distemper shot on hold, as she want to wait 3 years in between them. So it is all good!

PS still loving the Litter Genie!

Excellent news! I hope you continue to get better. But some cats just aren't as healthy as others. My life with Dad had a lot of health problems (cyst, hyperthyroidism, diabetes, cancer) but I was worth it. My heart was strong and I had lots of love that made life worth living. You have the same thing so don't let it get you down!

That sounds like a great checkup! Sorry about the rx food, but if you like it, it's better to eat that than get the crystals.

Can you mix in the rx food with your other food? That way you would still be getting some. Glad to hear that your check-up went well.

Yay!!! A good checkup is always great news. Tiny has arthritis and is taking Dasuquan but probably needs another medicine. It might help you more now since yours isn't bad. Tiny didn't have sptoms until he started taking thyroid mess. Before that, he ran around like crazy and I think he just didn't notice something was wrong.
