Vet Day Too


I brought Thompson and Diego-san into the vet for their annual checkups. Thompson has lost over a pound and a half over the past year and now weighs only 7 and a half pounds. At his heaviest he weighed over twelve pounds. I had his kidneys tested again and they turned out normal. His thyroid tested at the upper limit of normal though so he may have more tests.

Diego-san also lost half a pound (he weighs around 11 pounds). The vet asked if there might be any reason for the loss. The only thing I could think of is Diego-san is the most frequent upchucker of the boys.  I'm supposed to monitor that and bring him back in six months...

Thompson was not a happy boy with the adventure. He growled at me nearly the entire time.  Diego-san took a calmer and cooler approach sprawling out on the table when it was his turn and enjoying the attention of the vet tech.

I hope there's nothing serious going on with the boys - that's quite a weight loss for Thompson.

Like Summer said, we hope there's nothing serious going on with them, though it's good you will do some further thyroid testing with Thompson.

The boyz are such lightweights compared to my 15 & 18 pounders!
