Older PetsHi! Licorice has been acting a bit strangely lately, so we took her to the vet for a check up. She is 16 so changes are bound to happen.
The doctor gave her the once over and suggested an x-ray and blood work to help with a diagnosis. Apparently, Licorice's liver values are off and she had fluid in her belly. The doctor has prescribed some medication to see if it helps to bring her levels back to or close to normal. If not, there maybe something bigger happening with her liver.
So if you have a moment please lift a prayer for her health or send out some healing vibes. We'd greatly appreciate it.
Art Imitates Real Life
Unfortunately, this situation actually happened today in our non-vinyl fur family with 11-year old Dusty.
She is our first "quarry cat" and a super sweet kitty. She's one of our "greeters" and the third oldest of the felines. I know some people do not embrace the idea of furry family members and feel they are "just animals." We do not fall into that category. If you are similar in thinking to us, please say a prayer for or send healing vibes to Dusty. As Melody said, we'd greatly appreciate all the healing thoughts we can get.
