Mancat Monday

The Glads are blooming, they always make us GLAD.

The Coral Bean looks GREAT, so glad Mommy gotted one for us.

Me, well the vet stole my bloods and did some test and I has been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. The only symptom I had was increased appetite without weight gain. I has been eating my food, Scylla's food, Tuiren's food, Fenris' food and stealing the humans food off the table. I even started eating Mommy's Candy Corn Cuphea. Turns out some species of Cuphea are used to produce cuphea oil, of interest as sources of medium-chain triglycerides. For most purposes, cuphea oil is identical to coconut oil and palm oil. Mommy thinks it is kinda interesting that it was the only one of her plants I was devouring and it actually is a food source. 

I passed my physical with flying colors my thyroid isn't noticeably enlarged, my coat looks great, my teeth are in good shape. I was just eating a lot and not gaining weight. So Mommy took the veterinarian's advice and had them do blood work. The blood work came back with my T stuffs off the charts and one of my liver things was out of whack. We are hoping once my thyroid gets under control the liver thing will go back to it's normal range. For now I am taking a pill twice a day. I will go back for them to steal my bloods again in a few weeks to see how the medication is working. We will keep you updated on my prognosis. For now it is all good. Thanks to the blood work screening this was caught before I started showing any physical symptoms.  ~Socks, reporting for Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs

  10. You look like my gray boy Gris Gris who is borderline hyperthyroid. Caught early it's an easy disease to treat but needs monitoring. Sending purrs for quick balancing of T-levels.

  11. Ciara has just recently been diagnosed with border line low thyroid, just like her big bro TD. Her only symptoms are lots and lots and lots of shedding and weight gain. She joins TD on soloxine now forever. Hope your meds do the trick for you too, Socks.
