|First of all let me say you have the best kitty name evah. I had this procedure done and it really was a snap. My mommy was worried, but my specialist had no problems from me. Mommy always said I was a good girl.
My results were positive for both problems, but they were not life threatening to me. I also had high blood pressure, but meds took care of that and made the other problems less risky. At the stage they found all of this, I had been on thryroid meds for five plus years and taking sub-q fluids once a week for early stage renal failure. Mommy found the renal problem really, really early and I never got much worse over the years.
It does cost some money to get the tests, but mommy always said she could earn more money but never get another me. From your post, it sounds like you are more worried about the outcome than costs. But please don't stress out too much over the tests. Stress can make them read a little worse than they really are, but a good vet specialist will take that into account. If your results turn out poorly, there are meds you can take and other treatments available. Try not to worry until you find out if it's bad or just mild. Easier said than done, but it may not be bad at all and just something that needs to be monitored and taken into consideration if you ever need surgery or medication for something else.
Good luck and please keep us updated,
