The Morning Routine

My cat Atlantis has a morning routine that he really doesn’t care for very much. He has Hyperthyroidism and other conditions so he needs some special attention. I place him on the counter and give him some Laxitone. He licks a little off of my finger and this helps with digestion. I then have to give him 1.5 ml of Astros oil, a high potency omega oil for well being and kidney conditions. I use a small pipette and squirt it down his throat. Needless to say, he doesn’t care for this.  I then clean his ears out so I can give him his transdermal thyroid medicine and a medicine to stimulate his appetite. I use a baby wipe and gently wipe the inside of his ears. He really doesn’t like this and usually lets out a loud “meow.”  After this is completed, I place a little of the medication in both ears. This is a daily process and usually takes less than five minutes but Atlantis leaves the room and goes to his “comfort” corner to  chill out for a little while.

Even though this is a little inconvenient for Atlantis, I”m pleased to say that he is doing so much better! We will do anything to keep our pets happy and healthy!
