Tabs to the vet’s for her annual check-up

How told is Tabs, exactly? We don’t know.

She came to our old house in November 2011 wearing a red collar with a bell. When I took her to the vet’s to be neutered, the vet estimated her age to be “7 months”. This would mean Tabs is 12 plus this year.

So since I […]

Cow Mau’s echocardiogram at the vet’s

Cow Mau had his echocardiogram done today. It is basically a thorough ultrasound scan of the heart and it took more than 30 minutes. The left ventricle was checked more thoroughly than the right since it’s the left that pumps oxygen-rich blood to the rest of the body.

Cow was very cooperative, though. But he […]

Indy’s subcut for the day

It was way back in 2019, four years ago, when Indy needed subcut, but only for 8 months. He had kidney issues, but it resolved itself after 8 months and he didn’t need subcut anymore. Way back then, I was able to do it singlehandedly so I thought I’d try today.

Yes, I still […]

Cow Mau to the vet’s (congestive heart failure)

I know how scary congestive heart failure sounds. But that’s what Cow Mau has.

Congestive heart failure (also called heart failure) is a serious condition in which the heart doesn’t pump blood as efficiently as it should. Despite its name, heart failure doesn’t mean that the heart has literally failed or is about to stop […]

Indy’s to the vet’s (chronic kidney degeneration)

Luckily I decided to take Indy to the vet’s today even though he didn’t present with any particular symptoms.

Indy has chronic kidney degeneration and it is at Stage 3. Indy is 15 years old 4 months. He was rescued from the drain in May 2008.

His blood test last year, in October 2022, was […]

Cleo to the vet’s (kidney degeneration)

I took Cleo, Indy and Cow Mau to the vet’s today for their geriatric check-up. It’s all bad news, unfortunately.

Well, they are, after all, our super seniors.

Aging happens and we know there is no escape from geriatric illnesses.

Cleo is 16 years 7 months old.

She has been a kidney patient since September […]

A TVT dog colony outside Imm’s Shelter

There is a colony of dogs living outside Imm’s Shelter.

The first one to be caught for TVT treatment was Tara. It wasn’t easy catching her, but they managed to. Tara only needed three jabs and she has now fully recovered and his back in the colony, fed daily by Imm’s Shelter.

Then, there was […]

Updates on WinWin (from Survivor Shelter)

Ms Ong took WinWin for her bi-weekly check-up today and there’s good news! WinWin’s blood PCV has risen to 30%!

She is also very active now. Her Cyclosporine (Sandimmum Neoral) dosage is now reduced from 4 tablets to 3.

It’s all very good! […]

The Monsters get a brief crossover today

Minnie vomited her breakfast out this morning, so I had to let them crossover to eat some grass.

Under heavily-armed surveillance.

The moment I heard some growling, everyone got carted back to Ginger’s Catio.

Meanwhile, I forgot to mention that day when I took Cow Mau to our regular vet with […]
