Just a quick post to record the results of Tasha’s exam and blood test from last Friday. The test was the final post-procedure followup for Tasha regarding her Iodine-131 treatment for hyperthyroidism. Our cat weighed in at a healthy 8.4 pounds, her longstanding tummy troubles (once diagnosed as inflammatory bowel disease) seem to have ended, her oral health appears better, and her coat is full and thick as it once was. Her thyroid hormone level tested at 2.7 with the normal range being 1.9 to 4.8 — excellent! Dr. B., phoning us with the blood results, said “Tasha’s hunky-dory!” We agree.
She does not look very impressed – I’m glad she is doing well though.
I had to rush to get a shot of Tasha before I left for work and didn’t take care to make sure the shots were clear! This one caught her just as she was squinting her eyes, relaxing and comfortable but she certainly does look the opposite! Thanks for your good wishes. — JG
