Our Trip to the Vet

About a week and a half ago, I noticed that Carmine was itching his ears.  He does this sometimes when they get a little dirty, so I had our friend D look at them and clean them out.  He told me he found some gooey stuff in Carmine's ears.  I noted it to tell the vet when Carmine was due in for his quarterly appointment (which was last Wednesday).

Then I noticed Lita scratching her ears, and Milita never scratches at her ears unless something's wrong (like when she had a food allergy several years ago).  So, I had D look in her ears, and he saw the same brown gooey stuff in hers as well.



So last Wednesday, I put them both in carriers and took them to the vet.

Carmine weighed in at 9 pounds 3.5 ounces.  Milita weighed in at 12 pounds 4.5 ounces.  Milita has to go on a diet, and she is NOT pleased about it!


Milita: Can you believe the v-e-t wants me to go on a diet?!

The vet discovered that the kitties had some kind of ear infection, so she prescribed Endoderm for them.  The medicine worked really fast!  Their ears all look better, and we are working on finishing the course of treatment now.

I'm very thankful that my babies are feeling better!!

We hope you all have a wonderful day today!

  2. The vet visits - we hate seeing our carriers and if it's just one carrier out we play the "not me" game! We're pleased your vet stopped your ears from being yucky though so it must have been worth the visit.

  9. I'm glad everyone's better! Well, not so glad about the diet. Binga and Boodie got good reports from the vet - she even hinted that Boodie (the largest kitty of the three of us) could use a little MORE weight!

  13. Did the vet say how they got it so you can be sure that it doesn't happen again. Glad both babies are better now. Our very first cat Skooter had this. It's been so long ago, I don't remember what she told me. Sorry about the diet. I think that's going to happen to Giulietta the next time she goes to the vet. I can hardly lift her anymore. Hugs, Janet

  17. Isn't it amazing how quickly something can turn up? I'm always amazed but thankfully, even with all the fosters that we've had, transmitted stuff has stayed to a bare minimum.
