Zurik’s mid-week report

A few days ago, we increased Zurik’s Vetri DMG to 0.5ml twice a day. Previously, it was just once a day. The vet agreed there was no harm in doing so. Hopefully, this increase would help slow down the progress of the FIP disease.

Coincidentally with the increase in the Vetri DMG, I […]

Zurik’s check-up today (PCV up!)

Today was Zurik’s check-up.

There is good news and not-so-good news.

The good news is that Zurik’s blood PCV has gone up to 30% from the previous 23% last week! And, there is no more jaundice too though Zurik’s gums still appear to be a little pale. This means that decrease in the PCV, and […]

Bunny goes to the vet’s (eye problem)

Yesterday, I noticed that Bunny’s right eye was swollen on the upper and lower lids. Bunny has always had eye discharge for years now, but this was different. The left eye had the usual discharge but the right was visibly swollen.

Also, Bunny has been having his vomiting problem again and I needed to get […]

Zurik’s check-up

Today was Zurik’s check-up.

The small amounts of fluids in the right and lung cavity remains the same with no increase. But the abdominal fluids have a slight increase. However, these fluids are spread all over interspersed in the layers of fat, so it was not possible to have them drawn out. The vet thinks […]

Zurik’s news

It’s been almost a week since Zurik was discovered to have fever, jaundice and pockets of fluids in his left lung cavity and abdominal cavity (which has caused a noticeable bulge).

These came unexpectedly and it took me some time to take it all in. I had thought that Zurik’s condition had stabilised but I […]

Zurik’s check-up – a minor setback

We just came home from Zurik’s check-up today.

There is a minor setback.

Zurik’s weight was 5.0kg on the clinic scale, which is an increase of 300g from two weeks ago. However, since Monday, I’ve noticed a slight bulge in his abdomen and the vet felt this too and it felt like a bulge of […]

Zurik’s portraits

Tomorrow is Zurik’s check-up at the vet’s. It would be 77 days after diagnosis.

Two weeks ago, we took another bold step and tapered down his steroids to 2.5mg once in two days. Tomorrow, we shall see if there is any further fluid build-up or it is status quo (as it had been for the […]

Bunny and Indy to vet’s (SDMA down!)

Today, Bunny and Indy also tagged along to the vet’s with Zurik. For the two of them, it’s their 2-month’s review.

Both Bunny and Indy was discovered to have early kidney degeneration two months ago. Bunny’s SDMA was 18 (high) while Indy’s was 15 (borderline high). For the last two months, both were on their […]

Zurik’s check-up – too little fluids!

Today is Zurik’s check-up.

The vet did a very thorough ultrasound on both lung cavities and the abdomen.

As before, the left lung cavity has no fluids. The right has some tiny pockets of fluids, but it was even less than before! The abdomen has a small spot of fluids, but it was an insignificant […]
