Good Report From The Vet For Molly

She should better test results today!

Recently, my 16 1/2 year old cat was diagnosed with Kidney disease and hyperthyroidism. This is a very dangerous combination for cats since Kidney disease is usually not curable. Over the past month, I’ve been on a mission to sustain the quality of Molly’s life for as long as possible. She’s been taking Methimozole ¬†twice a day. I cut the tablet in half because I don’t want it to slow the thyroid down too much. I’m also giving her a combination of a prescription cat food diet and my own concoction of Purina Pro Plan urinary tract lower protein cat food and Pet Fresh chicken morsels. These are higher in protein (which is not good for kidney disease) but she likes them and she has to eat. I’m also giving her a high quality omega three oil.

Molly’s last blood test was not good. It showed an over active thyroid, high creatinine levels which indicate kidney disease and weight loss. Today’s exam showed the thyroid T4 cells back to a normal level, lower creatinine levels and slight weight gain. Both myself and her vet are¬†very pleased. We are doing everything we could to keep Molly with us as long as possible. Don’t give up on your pet, always do the best you can to keep her healthy for as long as possible.
