Tanner had a nice birthday yesterday...he got many new toys. He even scored a new X Scratcher, but he didn't sit on it, so I don't have a photo yet.
Auntie made him cupcakes because this boy has a sweet tooth like nothing I have ever seen. Auntie knew this would make him feel better!
Tanner enjoyed a quick lick of icing and a couple of small bites of cake...he was a happy boy!
Today at the vet, she checked noted that he didn't look quite right either, and decided to do a few things to check...
Blood pressure - normal
Tempurate - normal
Eyes- she thought he looked "stoned"
CBC - still only 28% red blood cells, but has an increase in the reticulocyte value, which means he is making red cells!
She gave us an iron supplement to help his body along, and instructions to watch him. If he still seems "off" in a couple of weeks to a month, then she will ultrasound his abdomen and do chest x-rays to see if there is something more. She felt comfortable waiting, since he appears to be improving ever so slowly on his own.
Tanner was happy to be back home...he got a dose of iron and went to bed :)
Ollie's FeLV/FIV test came back Negative/Negative!
