Title: My vet visit was mostly u...My vet visit was mostly uneventful yesterday. David has been worried because of my weight gain and some other things. My doctor explained that the Phenobarbital I take has the side effect of gaining weight. He said we should just cut back on my food some, so David lowered my dinner by 10%. He also said I was in good shape over all. My test results show my Phenobarbital level in the blood as subtherapeutic, but what does the clinic that analyzed my blood know? They do not know me at all or how I manage on this level of drugs. They base that phrase on averages based on all cats and dogs. Well my doctor agrees, for me the level I am on works great! I get far less than most epileptic cats and I have not had a grand-mal in over a year. Sounds pretty good to me, David and the doctor. I do have petite-mal seizures from time to time though, but the doctor said they are not a concern. So that was it.
The discussion over me was short, then they started to discuss Itchy and his problems, treatment, side effects and other things. That lasted about 35 minutes. From what I heard Itchy will be getting a standard COP treatment, which seems to be a combination of drugs. He will be starting on December 2nd and will have to go to the vet office once a week for a whole day to get drugs intravenously and orally, plus oral medication every day. The doctor said that we have to keep a sharp eye on Itchy for unwanted effects from the drugs, and the white blood count since he suffers from IDB and toxo as well. He also said that the medications Itchy will be on will make him gain weight. David is pretty worried about this whole thing.
Oh, the couch came back yesterday! So I was able to sleep on it for a while, then David took me into his bedroom for the night and Itchy came out.
