Update on Molly

Doing pretty well with hyperthyroidism and kidney disease of course I spoil her!

As you know, my 17 year old cat, Molly was diagnosed with kidney disease and hyperthyroidism in late December. Here’s an update on the old girl. I’ve been giving her low protein and low phosphorous cat food and mixing with a high potency omega oil, called Astro’s Oil. She take 5 milligrams of Methamazole for her thyroid twice a day. I cut the tiny pill in half for each dose. I check her and adjust the amount as necessary. Sometimes, I give her a little less so she doesn’t get so sluggish. Her last test results showed that her Thyroid is back to normal levels and her Kidney disease has not advanced. This is a very delicate situation. I have to make sure she eats, drinks and pees regularly.Right now, she’s being a little finicky. I don’t know if it’s because of the disease or she’s just spoiled. I am sort of going crazy trying to mix a combination of cat food that she likes. I’m spending a small fortune! It’s all worth it for Molly. She is a wonderful companion and I hope to have her munching on cat treats, sleeping in her cat bed and driving me nuts for a long time to come!
