I took Bob to the vet yesterday, and they are running all his bloodwork again.  
I go back next week to see results and check blood pressure.  He is already on 
the norvasc and has blood in his urine.  This second doctor I saw didn't think 
his bloodwork showed signs of crf, but wanted to run bloodwork to look for 
changes since november when it was last run.  I will get copies when I go in.
  He put Bob on amoxy for the blood in his urine and put him on cosequin, which 
he said can help somehow with either the kidneys or the bladder.  I don't 
recall which.  He suggested keeping him on amoxy for a while, because Bob got 
so sick last time I put him on Baytril.  He also suggested probiotics, but 
wants to wait for all test results first.  I will get a copy of the bloodwork 
from november and from yesterday.
  Popeye, the last cat I lost was on Norvasc and lost his eyesight.  He also 
had a heart murmur.

  What are his numbers, specifically his Creatinine, BUN, 
Phosphorus, Potassium, and his HCT, these are the important ones that 
tell you how well or not well he is doing? Get them from your vet, they 
can fax or give you a copy of his last blood work results, you paid for 
them they are yours. Tell me what they are and I can tell you what my 
vet would be doing if Fred had those numbers. Also has his blood 
pressure been checked, CRF cats are notorious for getting high blood 
pressure, this can be very dangerous and cause blindness if not caught 
and treated. Several cats on the CRF list have gone blind been put on 
amlodipine and regained some if not all of their sight. The retinas 
detach when the blood pressure gets too high, too high can vary for each 
individual cat but you really don't want the blood pressure higher than 
170 or 180 at the vets.

Fred's has been as high as 200 to 240 when he was having the episode 
that I took him in for right away, thankfully his retinas never detached 
but I got him in right away when his legs were twitching and he kind of 
looked spacey and fell over.

Get the numbers and send them ... does he still get fluids?


happiness is being owned by cats ...
