Thursday Trip to the Vet

Hello friends.  Dragonheart here.  I am at the specialist vet today for a consult about my gum hyperplasia.  We are lucky to have one of the top veterinary colleges in the world here, which we are definitely going to miss when we move. But hopefully we won't need to see any more specialists after this!


My mom and I met with the specialist this morning, and the initial news is sadly not very good.  The location in my mouth where I have the gum hyperplasia is typically problematic in cats.  That is, when they do aggressive surgery in that area in cats, we typically don't return to eating afterwards and need to be on feeding tubes.  That obviously isn't great for quality of life.



That said, the specialist wants to take a look in my mouth with a surgeon present, so right now we are just waiting for the surgeon to be available.  We will update you when we have more news.

Thank you again for your purrs, prayers, and positive thoughts.

We will keep purring and purraying for you Dragonheart. Remember to put the bitey on if the specialist vet hurts you and bite hard so he remembers it.

We are crossing all our paws and hooves, Dragonheart, that the vet and surgeon together will be able to come up with a good solution.

So, you guys are not moving east, then? There is also an excellent vet college in PEI!

Purrs,
The Chans
