We're still missing about 11 cats but will continue to get them done. All of the above received their physical from Dr. Darcy. We then gave them their distemper update vaccine, a wormer and applied Frontline to each. The findings: all in good health. A few ears had wax and were cleaned.
There's a few that needs a dental: Ceasar, Olaf, Mew, Oliver, Rowland and Rory. Ceasar's is more extensive but we think the others will be pretty mild dentals. Cliff has 1 incisor that we'd like to pull, here at FFRC. It is starting to ride up in where his cleft lip is.
I've been concerned that Vivienne wasn't up to par---running a fever, not eating. I did give her fluids yesterday morning early. We also started her on a "nausea cocktail"--it's a triple combo of an anti-nausea, stomach protector and an appetite stimulant. Seems to be working as she is now eating. Hoping we can get her back out tomorrow. It's important that she starts using that rear leg.
We do have hard news on Cleo. Dr. Darcy confirmed that she does have a tumor in her head. It's not operable. She is already at the stage where it's causing a head tilt for Cleo. We do have her on soreness meds---started those early last week. For now, we will love her and feed her and do whatever she wants of us. But, there will come a time soon that we will help her cross over to the Bridge. I have never believed in waiting to the last minute to help a pet pass. Thank you for loving her and caring about her.
We have many thanks to give. I'm so sorry I've gotten behind. Please know you are appreciated!
