Towards the end of last year, Tilly started to increase her drinking. As she showed no other signs of being unwell I decided to monitor her. Her drinking levelled off at an increased amount & once again she was well in herself. So I continued the monitoring. However, earlier this year I noticed she began to lose weight, it wasn’t a massive amount but still we have got to her lowest weight. Her weight has also levelled off at the lower weight.
This was enough to prompt me to start some investigations. So Tilly paid a visit to the vets earlier this week. Knowing they would ask for a urine sample I got one ready from Tilly the day before & popped it in the fridge overnight so it would keep. After the vet check, Tilly seemed fine, nothing untoward was found. So the urine sample would be tested & bloods would be taken to check Tilly’s kidneys, liver etc. Tilly got a gold star for good behaviour as they took the bloods from her & amazingly it was done with ease, it’s usually not that simple!
The results came back & at first glance nothing seems to stand out, however the results are going to be analysed further & I should know the findings next week. A promising start nothing is wrong although I do hope it’s not one of those situations where everything looks good but something is still not quite right. As for Tilly she is still well & happily eating & being naughty.
