First Tubby got another cornea scratch:
Thankfully we caught it early, with puggie eyes you need to be on the alert, and the only treatment necessary is antibiotic ointment. Tubby seems to be feeling pretty good actually, and he isn't itching or rubbing his eye.
Then Bob got a cornea scratch, his first one, and out of nowhere his poor eye looked like this
The eye issues weren't the end though during Ernie's senior wellness exam we found out he had crystals in his urine and an X Ray confirmed small stones in his bladder. Luckily no surgery is needed but he is on a new food.
Then during Ping's 6 month senior wellness bloodwork we found out her liver values have risen again.
Thankfully they are still on the low end of high so we are continuing the the Denamarin supplement she takes and switching her to a lower protein low fat food, wellness super five mix and some home cooked, though in general I am a fan of high protein foods they can be tough on the liver. (The good news is Tubby's senior blood work is excellent).
I am so thankful that we caught Ping's and Ernie's problems early and can begin diet and supplement changes that can help manage their issues. If we had not done routine blood work and urine testing we likely would not have found the problems until they were very advanced and difficult to treat. If you have young pets please invest in pet insurance and if you have older pets consider getting wellness exams every 6 months, remember early detection is the key to successfully treating and managing many illnesses.
