A vet visit for Kodak.....
Kodak has been pulling his fur out for about a week and a half.....mom has been finding clumps of grey fur on the kitty beds, so today she took him to the vet. He's always had a few poop issues ie constipated, But he's never pulled fur out so mom thought he might be impacted.
Dr Evans is our vet and she's wonderful! She always takes good care of us kitties! She checked Kodak out. He was due for his diabetic blood /urine panel today as well. So Dr Evans took some of his blood, some of his urine and took a picture of his intestinal area.
Well...he has alot of poop in his intestines that needs to come out! it's not impacted but if it doesn't come out soon....so kodak got some nasty tasting lactulose, if that doesn't work in the next day or two he has to have an enema...that sounds scary!
The x-ray was a different thing, besides showing Kodak's poop, it also showed that he has LS disease,Lumbosacaral Disc Disease. Mom was sad when she heard this. But she and Dr Evans are already planning there attack. Kodak will start getting accupuncture next week. Dr Evans took a special course to be certified in accupuncture! mom is super excited about that!!!
Of course, Mom's busy 70 hour work week schedule is going to make getting Kodak to the vet a bit harder, but we have our super Pet Sitter...we know she'll help out!!
