Busta is getting better!

Had a voicemail on my mobile from the vets as i left work today.

His exact words were : 'Things are looking better & better':banana: :banana: :banana:

Busta's last urine test showed an improvement in his protein / creatine levels. They had been very high on the last few tests, which is a worry as this can eventually damage the kidneys, but the sample from last week showed a big improvement which is most likely down to the decrease in dosage of the steroids.

They did however pick up a bacteria issue in the urine which could cause cystitis, but Busta seems okay in himself, no blood in his urine, so the vet said if he seems okay we can wait until our appointment next week and they will take another sample via a catheter 'as Busta is such a good patient' as the original sample could possibly have been contaminated and there may not be any issues at all.

Busta is almost back to his old self, he was playing with his toys today, carrying his massive chewy bar around with him and telling Pepsi off when she got a bit much for him!

He still looks very bony, especially around his head and his hips, but he is continuing to put on weight and the reduction in protein loss through his urine should also help this.

Just fed him his supper of tripe & pedigree chum - smells disgusting :sick:, but he likes it and it really is helping to get the weight back on.

:luck: Fingers crossed for a nice peaceful week until we are back at the vets next Friday. . . . . . and i have all of next week off work - lots of relaxation for me which is long overdue!!!
