TGIF and other things

    Fank Goodness my kidneys are better

Tanaka's values for his kidneys had gone down a lot in the last 3 months that he had acupuncture and TCM. His CRE is 2.2 from 2.6. I am greatly relieved. He has some gingivitis still on his back teeth but the vet said it was  not yet a cause for concern. 

    Popps at acupuncture yesterday 
Popps was surprisingly calm at acupuncture yesterday. She took to the needles like a trooper and after the initial curiosity and flight reaction, she settled down very well. Her liver values have gone down considerably from 364 to 142 but her kidney  values have gone up 1 from 2.4 to 2.5. I decided that it was time to send her to acupuncture as well. 

So Dr Oh is giving her 2 separate meds so she will not taste the nastiness of a combined formula since I have to put it in her raw minced chicken breast. She ate both easily.

So my hope is by the end of the year all of them would have better kidneys and liver functions. YAAY!!!

Wonderful news, handsome Tanaka! Look at those big, bright, beautiful eyes. You must be feeling very well.
Good job, Popps. Acupuncture will help you and we believe you know it.
God has blessed all of you by sending you to San.
You couldn't ask for a more loving and caring mum.
