My big boy, Renn, is at the hospital right now, having a tooth removed. I informed the doctor that I would like to have removed any of Renn’s teeth that look like they may give trouble in the future. At fifteen, and with second-stage kidney failure, I don’t want him undergoing any more medical procedures. He was started on fluids as soon as he was admitted, and will be on them for a couple of hours before his operation, and then all afternoon, until I pick him up about 4.30.
I felt very bad for Renn this morning. He doesn’t wish for breakfast every day, but he was ready and eager for it today - and I had to deny him the food that he wanted. The picture above depicts him waiting for service (which he gets before I make my bed); today he had to do without.
But the mornings when he has little appetite are also mornings in which he feels off, and sometimes throws up. Kidney issues often produce a morning illness. His alert attitude today boded well for his surgery; I wouldn’t want him going under anaesthetic while feeling poorly.
I am worried about my big boy, but he is in capable hands. The doctor with whom I am most familiar at the veterinary hospital - and, more importantly, who is most familiar with my cats - is performing the surgery. I will be called when all is done, and will bring my friend home soon afterward.
Big big purrs for you Renn. We know you will feel better in a few days!ReplyDelete
Purring for Renn, that when he's home again, he'll be as hungry as a bear! We noticed increased appetities for our kitties after their icky teeth were gone.ReplyDelete
Paws crossed that the same thing happens for Renny.
It would make sense that the days where he lacks appetite are times when his tooth was paining him. Be very well very soon, Renn!Delete
Sending lots of good thoughts for Renn. If I could purr I would do so!ReplyDelete
Purrs from us too, we hope all goes well and that he keeps his food down once he's home and able to eat. ♥ReplyDelete
Purrayers and Power of the Paw for Renn.ReplyDelete
Paws folded in prayer for good and quick recovery for Renn. And in a day or 2, he'll want a good breakfast. And he can be accommodated in the fashion he is acustomed.ReplyDelete
Good luck to Renn! I'm sure once that bad tooth is no longer a problem and he is no longer in pain, his appetite will return to normal. Please let us know how he is doing.ReplyDelete
Praying all went well. Please email your address to email@example.com and The Tooth Fairy will send a gift.ReplyDelete
