VISIT TO THE VETS


For a few days now Polly's bowels have been a bit loose.  I attributed this to the hot weather or something she had eaten.
She was a stray that we took in and so she still seems to have the habit of scavenging.
But this morning she wasn't interested in eating and so we thought it best to get her looked at.


So we craftily got the basket out while she was sitting in the garden and Tom carried her in and locked her up.
Meanwhile everyone else had heard the basket and scooted. lol


After having her heart checked, mouth looked at and tummy prodded the verdict was that there didn't seem to be anything wrong.
An injection was administered and some granules bought to put on the food and we are to keep a watch on her.
Meanwhile we came home £58.00 lighter in our funds.

Lets hope that things improve or it will be back for blood tests etc.

  1. Our cats do this on occasion. My general mode of action is to watch and wait... give it a few days, at the same time restricting food to small amounts only (preferably chicken) and lots of access to water. There are appetite stimulant meds and injections, but sometimes it's just a bug or something they ate... and will right itself in 3 - 5 days. Of course if it continues a visit to the Vet is a good thing. Our cats (especially Ghost) don't recuperate from the trauma of a Vet visit too well... so we watch and wait to avoid further upset. Hopefully Polly will bounce back quickly. I had to laugh about the pet carrier. Yes, the cats disappear quickly when that thing shows up.

  2. Yes, I hope she improves. After two days of no eating and drinking it is wise to have a vet check them out. Audrey was at the clinic today, too, for fluid on the ear. Now she is on antibiotics for 10 days. :( She hates the carrier, too. A box is only fun to get into if it is their idea.

  4. sorry to read Polly is under the weather but the vet has put your mind at ease though your purse is a lot lighter and good that she did not have a bug that the other cats could have caught. Fingers crossed she will be back to her old self soon

  11. Yes, vets' bills are always so high, but better to spend for 'nothing' (good news), than to have to spend out for 'something' that costs far, far more than just money. xx

  12. I hope she's better. I hate it when one of the fur kids is sick. My momma said that we always work for our animals.
