I went to the rehab vet for my normal stuff. Since I was tense because my man wasn't with me, he was wounded, and I had to protect him, I got CHEESE instead of the normal treats. A whole stick of cheese! I was extra good. She gave me some pills to help me relax too. They aren't drugs but are something you can get at a store. They worked too. I stopped feeling like I had to be my man's protector and could actually go play with my friends again.
I went to my vet last week and had a bunch of indignant stuff done. My temperature was taken (things come out of there, they aren't supposed to go IN!), they stole my pee, they poked my head and hip with needles, and stole blood.
My people said they were checking lumps to see what they were. The one on my head is called a sebaceous cyst and the one on the hip they couldn't figure out because nothing really came out. I have 2 others like it that I've had for years.
The vet said something calle "ALT" was a little high. My people said its a liver enzyme. I'm getting milk thistle to see what that does to the ALT. The vet said there are 2 things they can give me but I'm already eating so many powders that I some nights I get too full before I can finish them all so we are just doing the milk thistle for now because it doesn't add too much.
I've been going for 2 to 2-1/2 hour walks every morning with my man. I like to go see if the muskrats are at the wetlands. They aren't always there. The muskrats are much more interesting than the nutria or beavers that I sometimes see in there. I've even seen an otter.
