Good morning everybody! Happy Saturday! Happy Easter! Chag Sameach!
Bubba went back to the vet Tuesday, and after looking at all the results of prior tests, the vet suggested the next step would be pain management to see if meds would help. Jen was given a week’s worth of medication to see how Bubba responded.
The good news is he’s responded well! He’s not acting as afraid. He’s more comfortable. He’s eating more. And there have been no pottying outside the litter box since then.
The bad news is we now know Bubba has been experiencing pain and we’re not sure why. The vet suggested it could be arthritis. We’ll explore that further when Bubba goes back Monday for a re-check.
Jen is also relieved. She has been upset that he could be headed toward the Rainbow Bridge and his final days would be spent in fear. That is no way for any creature to live. At least now, no matter what the prognosis, she feels better knowing Bubba won’t face it while terrified.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some important napping to do.
Enjoy your holiday weekend!
