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.
