So today is Thai's 9th birthday. I had planned to take him to [email protected] to choose a new toy, make him a cake and take him on a nice walk at Dunwich heath... Instead we spent the day at the vets He had a lot of blood in his urine so got him in straight away, by the time we got to the vets his urine was much clearer but according to the dipstick test there was still blood present. No obvious infection and he isn't straining so urine and bloods are being tested for UTI, liver/kidney function, diabetes and calcium levels. If nothing shows up or he gets worse then it's x-rays and scans to try to work out where the blood is coming from. The vet also noticed that his prostate is enlarged but she isn't too worried about that because it's not asymmetrical or painful, but it's something to keep an eye on. The poor boy has two bald patches now because they tried to take blood from his neck but they struggled so took it from his leg instead Afterwards I took him to Starbucks to get a Puppichino And then he chose a cows ear and a turkey foot from the petshop Tomorrow we will have cake and a nice walk. ETA: Vet has just phoned and his bloods are clear so just have to wait on the urine cultures now.
