Speechless Sunday - This Girl is Resilient!

During a quick thyroid check, sweet Charlotte's vet also checked her blood pressure and renal (kidney) levels during the visit. The transdermal thyroid medication dosage is still spot-on but, they have determined that she has high blood pressure and early stages of renal failure. She had a little of her tail shaved for the recurring blood pressure checks (yes, that's where the blood pressure cuff goes!) and is starting a whole new diet. 

 

This girl is resilient

 

At almost 17 and the most laid back cat you'll ever meet, she's poo-pooing the idea of having hypertension and has committed to giving her new diet a chance so as to protect her kidneys! I'm telling you, this girl is resilient!

Wow, sounds like she is handling quite a lot at her progressed age, I hope that her new diet will bode well for her.

Aw, I'm so happy to hear they can do something to help this sweet cat. She is very lucky to have you as a pet mama.  Here's to Charlotte's good health - today and in the years ahead.  D

I had no idea that they used the tail to check feline blood pressure.  I learned something new today.  I hope Charlotte gets to feeling a little better!

Can you take blood pressure with the finger of a person? I’ve heard this before. Myrl Jeffcoat

Wayne Martin, you clearly have an understanding of the feline persuasion's persnickety ways! LOL Seriously, she is an unusual cat and I have never seen one so easily adaptable. Perhaps that's why she's lived so long!

Every time I take her in, the first thing I want to know is how much she weighs! Funny but, she is the only instance that I can recall praying for weight gain! LOL

Happy Thursday, Lise Howe

We had a little Shih tzu that had renal failure and his last years were tough. Some respond to the meds and the specialty foods, others don't. It's heartbreaking when they don't, for sure! And, thank you - we think we're the lucky ones, Amanda S. Davidson!

I surely do hope you're right about the longevity, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP. She is such an unusual cat and I can't imagine ever being lucky enough to ever find another one that steals my heart the way she does!

I had never seen them check her blood pressure before either - it was definitely different than I thought it would be. The cute little cuff is only about an inch wide!

I can't imagine giving cats injections - that would HAVE to be tough! I used to be a nurse and don't know if I could do that! How lucky were all of your friends who had ailing pets, having you to care for them when they were traveling. You are definitely a rare find - most people shy away from helping with pets when there is anything out of the norm for them to do. Many kudos to you!

Thank you, Michael Jacobs! I learned a new bit of trivia when I took her in - 80% of felines will have some level of kidney failure. After I left, I began to wonder if you should start your new kitten/cat out on a renal diet to avoid that down the road. I'm definitely going to ask the vet that the next time I'm there - inquiring minds want to know!

Sadly, you're right, George Souto - I'm just hoping this is a 'mid-life' issue for Charlotte!

I didn't either, Myrl Jeffcoat! I thought I was the only one but, now so many people have told me that same thing, I'm wondering if this is something new?!
