Akira at the osteopath

This morning we nearly missed our appt with Dr Lalani as we got trapped in a jam at the ECP. Dr L advised us make another appt as he did not wish to cut short Akira's session but we made it by a whisker.

I told Dr L that she may have some trouble with her back legs. Dr L felt them and enquired if she seemed clumsy. He touched her ears as well and asked me when I had cleaned her ears last. I had never cleaned her ears! He advised that I clean her ears gently as there was some inflammation in her left ear and her right ear also needed cleaning. He also cleared up her sinus.

In more good news Dr L said she is coming into her own once again and he can see that she is becoming a more assertive kitty. Akira of cos was very quiet with the doctor which was good. She had complained the whole one hour to The Biopolis! Her next appt is on 27 April as he wanted to see if she was less clumsy and her ears are free of the inflammation.He said the ear inflammation could also cause her to lose balance as well. She was quiet and restful after the session and Dr L said she should be sleeping for a few hours :)

Anyway Dr L said I should try to clean her ears gently myself so she would not get stressed at the vet. He also recommended some fish oil on her diet. Oh-oh!

Akira at home became quite relaxed.

Tanaka of cos was ever vigilant.
