BHU: Oh, hai! Guess what! Mai mom and poppy took me to the Mewniversity of Misery Vetz Klinik Thursday and they were very mean to me but there were some purrity girls there so it was okay. The only thing is, I gotta go back to get mai teeth cleaned. This quilt feels nice and snuggly so I'm gonna take a nap now. Mai mom will tell you the resta the story.
PATTY: I'm not sure about the "mean" part; that might be a little dramatic, Bhu. Anyhoo, Sab & I have been really worried for many years now that Bhu was not getting a complete exam when we took him to the vet every year for his shots. He is just so aggressively uncooperative that most vets have been afraid to touch him and, since he is a "senior" kitteh, no one wanted to sedate him for fear of dire results. So we took him to the University's vet clinic where they have worked on some of the most exotic animals in the world and where they have Board Certified anesthesiologists. A bit of an upgrade from the neighborhood vet.
Bhu was sedated and examined thoroughly! For a 15 year old, he is in very good shape except for his teeth. Even his kidney values have improved (despite the fact that he refuses to eat the special food and continues to eat Liver & Chicken Feast)!
He's going to have to have a cleaning "including radiographs" and probably several extractions. Have any of your kittehs had this done? Do you know any kittehs who have had this? He's taking antibiotics (which he actually LIKES, btw) and he is much happier already.
We would love to hear from you about what you know about these procedures! xxoo Patty
