Visiting the Vet

19 Sep

Last week Herbie went to visit the vet.  He completed his series of kitten shots, and he also got fixed.

I thought they amputated a leg!

There it is!

I am a responsible pet owner.  I now have five neutered male cats.  How do I keep ending up with kittens on the farm?

Bob also went to the vet.  He’s been gaining weight back since I’ve been feeding him the canned food.  But I thought it would be a good idea to see if he had a bad tooth or something.

Everything looked good, so I will just keep feeding him the wet food.  I will say, he’s absolutely embraced being able to demand that I give him wet food.  Hopefully, he continues to do well.  This summer Bob has certainly developed a limp on the front right leg. You can see he’s not standing evenly on his legs.

While we were at the vet’s, they did tell me that there is a new arthritis treatment coming out for cats.  We are on their list to let us know when it is available. Hopefully, that will help him be more comfortable.
