2 ladies at the vet

Akira went to the vet on Monday for her end-of-year checkup. My concern was her high  calcium values from June this year. She also had an ultra sound but the vet could not find anything abnormal with her organs. Since she has been eating more and drinking more, I also had the vet do a test for herT4 for hyperthyroidism. The test showed that she is as healthy as can be and she  has  no problems with hyperthyroid or kidneys or even liver. She did have very high values  for AMYL but the vet said this was not a problem in cats. Dr Oh however wanted to remain cautious and had given her some additional herbs for that. She is also 5.7 kg from 5.6. 
Poppy did very well and did not make a fuss at the vet although she yelled in the lift going to the vet. Her kidney showed improvement at 2.4 from June's 2.6. So she is within the normal  although a little high range. She has put on only 50g and is now 4.65kg. We were all estactic as she is doing reallly well. She didn't need any steroids for her face although Dr Oh had recommended us something for herpes just for us to see if she actually has feline herpes or not. So I will get that by the end of the week.

Well Done, Ms. Akira! You are quite an impressive lady at 5.6kg. Tama is "only" 5.1kg! So glad you're doing well too, Popps!

Such good end of the year news. We are very happy to hear the ladies are healthy and the vet visit went well. I will have to arrange for Holly to have her yearly exam in the new year.
