Since Obi has been on the increased prednisolone and antibiotics and Prozac, he got an eye ulcer. So, Maw had to put a drop in his eye 3 times a day. Obi does not appreciate this AT ALL. And then some other drops came in that have to be refrigerated, and Obi definitely doesn't like those drops either. But his eye is looking better, and he goes back for a check-up on Friday. Maw REALLY hopes that she doesn't have to give Obi anymore eye drops after Friday! Obi runs from Maw when he sees her even approach his area. Poor ol' Obi. The eye ulcer is likely due to his feline herpes problem, and perhaps the increased prednisolone for his going outside the litter box and bladder infection issues.
And Reno somehow came down with a limp on his front leg over the weekend. So he went to see the v-e-t on Monday, along with Jenny who was getting her stitches removed. And there didn't appear to be anything wrong with his leg(s), since Maw really couldn't tell which leg it was that was hurting him. But now she thinks it is the right leg since he seems to favor it more. Originally, Maw thought it was his left leg that was bothering him. And then Maw asked how his teeth looked because she didn't think they looked real great with all the redness on the gums and such. The v-e-t said they were ok, but needed to be cleaned at some point, and Maw said it is hard to catch Reno since he was in a cage for 11 months after he was born at that horrible foster mom's house. So, the v-e-t kept Reno and did his dental the next day and said that his upper left molar looked pretty nasty and to keep an eye on it to see if it gets nasty looking again. So, Reno still has a limp, and is getting some meds for it, and we'll see how that goes.
So, as you can see, Maw makes a ton of trips to the v-e-t with various poodins from our place. Yep. Never a dull moment in our life!
And yes, it is still WAY TOO HOT. We will be tying the previous record of 42 consecutive days of over 100F perhaps on Saturday of this week? Anyway, it's WAY TOO HOT.
That's our news for today, and we're sticking to it.
