Tanner Tuesday

Tanner spent yesterday at the vet school having his monthly recheck.  This involved a physical exam, blood work and an abdominal ultrasound.
The results of the ultrasound were unchanged, so he remains in remission!

His blood work showed an improvement in the kidney values
BUN = 30 (was 71)
Creatinine = 1.7 (was 2.7)

His phosphorus was slightly elevated and will need to be rechecked in two weeks.  If this doesn't go back down on its own, then there is a supplement he can take to help him.

His potassium was within normal limits, so the supplements are working!

He is anemic again...nothing needs to be done at this time.

He has lost more weight.  Current weight is 5.45kg or 12 pounds.  The vet ran a T4 (thyroid) test and we are waiting on the results.  She said if he doesn't come back Hyper-T then next month we will run a GI panel to make sure he doesn't have an absorptive disorder.

At home, Tanner is eating well and playing hard.  He is taking his meds and fluids like a champ!  I will continue to cherish my moments with him and do what I can to keep him healthy and stable.
