Keeping Our Atlantis Healthy

Our Atlantis

Our cat Atlantis has been doing quite well these days. He’s an older cat that we adopted from our neighbor who passed away and over the past year and a half, he’s brought so much love to our household. He did come with a host of health issues including a thyroid and kidney condition. We’ve discovered that he also has digestive issues which causes many incidents of vomiting and diarrhea. After many attempts to stabilize his diet, I was struggling just to get him to eat. Some days he would eat well while others, he hardly ate at all. Several weeks ago I noticed that his vomit contained some blood. I immediately took him back to the vet and he was given some medicine to help settle his stomach. The vet also adjusted his thyroid medication. His kidney function is now in the normal range. The dose for his thyroid has been increased a bit and he’s now taking it in liquid form as opposed to a trans dermal method. I’m feeding him wet and dry food that helps with digestion. He’s also given Astro’s oil, a high dose of omega oil along with one drop of CBD oil each day.

Over the past several weeks he’s been doing quite well. He hasn’t been vomiting as much and he’s had no diarrhea. We will be having his thyroid checked again in a few weeks to make sure that it has returned to normal levels.

Our sweet boy is talkative and content and loves being with us and we want to keep him around as look as possible. Take care of your pets, they certainly deserve it!

Remember, your pets count!
