I have been sick for the last 3-4 days, throwing up a lot. I have not been my Spunky Munkey self. Mom had been very worried, so she took me to a new vet today, that specializes in cats only, since I have had a lot of health issues over the years.
Mom was hoping when we got there that there would be a good report on me. There was a nice colorful mural on the wall, so mom tried to think happy thoughts.
Armani came with me as mom wanted to have his teeth checked out since on his last check up to the other vet, mom was told he needed a tooth extraction.
Armani did not seem to realize he was in a vet's office so he started snoopervising!
Then he even did an elevator butt and even gave head butts to the vet! Armani, get a grip!!
The verdict on Armani was he did not have to have a tooth extraction yet, so mom was very pleased about that. So was Armani.
Me, on the other hand, not so good news. The vet listened to my heart and found I have a heart murmur, which is not good and this means likely cardiomyopathy. The vet put me in a towel and took me to the back room to steal my bloods. I have a furless spot on my neck now! The full blood test results won't come back till about 72 hours, for the special cardio blood test.
Mom is very worried, so please purr for her not to worry. We will update you all more when we have the test results.
2/9/12: JB's mom here with an update. The vet just called with JB's cardio panel results. They came back with a "red flag" indicating likely heart disease. I am so worried about my little girl. I have scheduled an ultrasound for Monday morning for her. The vet said the heart murmur scale is subjective but she put it at a 3 on a scale of 1-6. Please purr and pray for JB. Thanks everyone.
Please visit me and my animal friends at JB's BIG WORLD here too!
