since Angel was at the vet office, his de-sexing was last June and I wasn't expecting to take him again until his booster vaccinations, sometime in April or May.
But we've had a little problem. Well, Angel has, not me. For three mornings in a row, Angel has had sloppy bowels, urk!, my share of the problem is cleaning the mess out of the litter tray. Thank goodness he only goes once a day! (*~*)
So this morning I stopped in at the vet on my way to do the shopping and asked if Angel could be seen later today.
10.40am was the appointed time, so at 10.30 I tossed a few kitty treats into the newly-cleaned carrier and when Angel went in after them, I shoved his backside all the way in and slammed the door.
Then I picked it up to walk to the vet, he's just around the corner and down the street. My gosh this cat is heavy! just about ripped my arm from the socket!
The checkup revealed nothing wrong, temperature is fine, heart and lungs are fine, the palpated stomach appears fine, so I have some tablets to give Angel which should sort out the sloppy bowel problem. 1/4 of a tablet twice a day. I'll crush it into something and he will lick it off a spoon.
I also asked the vet to please shave off a hairball under Angel's armpit, then asked if Angel is too fat.
He doesn't eat much, but he is heavy. The vet said no, he's fine, well within range for his age and size.
Apparently he has heavy solid bones and of course there's all that fur too.
So I'm relieved that Angel is fine and should show improvement by tomorrow night or Monday morning, depending on when he uses the tray. Angel goes around 4.30am so if he is still not pooing normally by Monday morning, I'll be back at the vet, but I think he'll be fine.
