Carmine's Vet Visit

Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

Mes wanted to post last week, but then the Mom gotted, "busy," so mes had to wait.  

Did yous know that today is National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day?  Since today has to do with the vet, mes thought it would be a good day to tell yous about my recent trip to the vet last week.

Since mes ams a senior kitty, the Mom makes sure mes gets a routine wellness exam by the vet every six months.  So mes went in for my routine wellness exam.  

Theys found out that me losted a pound these past three months.  The Mom wasn't very surprised by that because mes had a pancreatitis flare when hers was packing us up to come to our new home, but hers had hoped mes hadn't lost so much weight.  Mes weighed in at 9 pounds and 5 ounces.

But yous know what?!  Now mes gets to eat more prescription a/d to put the weight back on, and mes really likes those noms!  




Theys told the Mom that mes has a little gingivitis on my teeths, but theys said that mes doesn't need a dental done yet.  

Mes ams due for my annual blood stealing (blood work) in November.  

As much as us kitties don't like going to the vet place, mes ams here to tell yous that it be important to help keep us healthy and happy.  So please remind your humans to take yous to the vet once a year for a routine wellness exam if yous is a young kitty and twice a year for a wellness exam if yous is a wise senior kitty like mes.
