Sam Update

I heard back from the vet on Thursday about Sam’s urine culture. She said everything was negative. So there would be no antibiotic for that. She was still concerned about the thyroid because the test results are still in the high normal range. But a high thyroid can help kidney function. Treating it could cause the kidney levels to go way up. So for now at least no medicine for that either.

Sam is still on his hydration therapy and the supplements in his food. He continues to be his same old self. There are no signs of what I would call being a sick cat. That usually entails hiding out, not wanting to be touched or held (that is more than normal) and not eating or drinking. Sam has none of those symptoms.

The upshot being that I take him back to the vet the first full weekend of August.
