I received a telephone call from the veterinarian about fifteen minutes ago, and was told that Tucker’s surgery went well. A great deal of tartar was removed and two teeth extracted. I thought more would have to be taken out. His blood sugar numbers were low before the operation but still within normalcy; they were raised a little for the procedure. I asked the doctor if the low amount could be due to Tucker receiving insulin (even half his usual morning dose) without having eaten food. This was the probable cause. Even so, he was in no danger from that regard.
The roly poly one is recovering and I will pick him up after four o’clock today. I requested that any anti-biotic and pain-killing medicine be in liquid form, for easy application, and will talk about how those substances will mix with his insulin. But soon Tucker will be safe at home; sore and hungry, but relieved and happy.
Thank you to everyone who expressed an interest and best wishes for this sausage of a cat. I will keep readers apprised of his improving condition.
