Osteopathy? If you say so, it's ok.

Megat went to see the osteopath Dr A.L yesterday for his asthma and arthritis and he got that and more. After the very intense session, Dr L said he would either run about like a one-year old or sleep like a log. He did this. 
He did not even get to his mat and he fell asleep ... well at least he got close to it. 
He finally got to his own space later and  had a long rest. 
                        ...zzz...
This morning, Megat looked well after a long rest. 

After his vincristine shot last Thursday, he had about 2 days of fever on and off. He vomited the dinner he ate on that Thursday night and I had to feed him with a syringe the next morning. But later he could eat on his own which is always a good thing. Now he eats on his own although not as much as before and even his kibble, which he loves, does not attract him all that much. But he still eats them at least.

He was very curious about this new experience and behaved very well the whole time Dr L was with him. 

Dr L had assessed him and we discussed his meds, his diet and his history with lymphoma. He found that Megat was low in Vit C and calcium and that his left kidney was smaller than his right. The kidney bit was usual for a senior cat. Dr L had also told me that.

 He had 3 intense bouts of therapy with a 5 minute break in between and took it all very well. Dr L also helped him with his chest so he could take in more oxygen with less effort for which I am very glad. Generally we are trying to work towards improving his immune system so he could fight the lymphoma better. An ultra sound would be helpful with this and so I had made an appointment for ultra sound at a***. 
Dr L said that he felt that Megat was a fighter with an indomitable spirit. I think this is true of Megat as eventhough he is the smallest of the 4 kitties, he does not take bullying lying down and his growl is really as bad as his boxing.
                    WATCH OUT!!
