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
