The doctor said she felt the one kidney was enlarged and firm. She got so
stressed from the bloodwork that she was given oxygen for 5 minutes. They also
gave her fluids and I brought a bag home to give her more every 3 days. By the
time I got home, she had perked up and ate a small can of food. She seemed
normal until the moment of death when she howled in pain and collapsed in my
lap. Apparently the kidney problem had been going on longer than we knew and
of coure, she did not act diffrent until the day she stopped eating and that is
the day I took her to the vet. She had been loosing weight over the last year
and we started her on kitten food to increase weight. I am afraid I missed
something. The next time there is any weight loss, we will do a full workup
and a more detailed blood work. And check the kidneys. With th beginning of
seeing Annie, the vet began to do research on FELV and has learned that any
abnormality in kidney size, shape and firmness and blood results is a sure sign
of FELV at work. She said any thing that says kidney malfunction will be a
sign that we concentrate on testing to find out what is going on. She had
ordered the Doxy and is willing to do Winstrol and has a pharamist nearby who
will compound anything we need. That is one step in the right direction.
Annie died at 8:00 pm the night we went to the vet but at least she was at
home, in my lap and had a few hours of feeling better.
