And why is that such a big deal, you might ask? Well, because for the first 2 weeks meowmy had to give Bugsy his meds 2x/day, and he is an 18lb big and strong kitty!
Because of this meds routine he was getting so traumatized of meowmy ... He couldn't even see her, and he would just run under the bed... so sad! It felt as though she only got him to give him meds... It was becoming a very sad relationship; She is SO relieved that is over now! Now he will only take his meds once a day, and that sounds SO GREAT! We are all very excited!!!!!!!!
Aside from that, he is doing great! No longer on pain medication, eating normally, and we think his teeth are already much better. We am sure he is in some pain, as he still has to deal with his resorptive lesions (curretly treated/desensitized) and with his stomatitis, but he is handling well, and to avoid the side effects, meowmy made the executive decision to stop the pain meds.
Before the treatment, he had a hard time eating wet food - it would bother his gums getting stuck in it, and he would have these bruxism episodes, trying to clean his teeth, and then just give up after eating a couple of bites.
I am glad to report that he is eating his dry food normally, but he no longer shows this problem with the wet food (bruxism trying to clean his teeth), which makes us believe his teeth are not bothering him as much We are feeding him now more wet food, finally!
The medicine he is taking also addresses his IBD, so since he started, his poop has been wwwwaaaaaaaayyyyyyy better too! Yuppie!!! Yey!
The only thing he needs more is more energy - we are sure it has to do with the pain... We hope the better he feels, the more active he will be
We will go beck on the 16th for a follow up, then in another 2 months...
We hope we can have at least his resorptive lesions extracted on the 16th - we will see, it will depend on his progress...
For now he is doing amazingly well!
Vibes for my baby!!!
