Henry's Purrfect Second Opinion


Henry was reluctant to sit on the examining table for the second time last week so he distracted himself by looking out the window for birds and squirrels but since they didn't make an appearance he hopped to the

 
floor looking more irritated than he was five minutes before. Can you blame him?


 When his regular vet examined him she discovered he has a double ear infection and applied a BNT salve that would stay in his ears for two weeks. No wonder he was so lethargic for weeks!


After the salve was applied Henry thought the worst was over Henry until I snapped a picture of his ear. He looks so angry, doesn't he?


After the salve was applied Henry hopped to the floor and listened to the vet's advice in regards to whether he should have a Senior Screen, X-rays, or an echo cardiogram

Much to Henry amazement (as seen above) his vet said she would NOT recommend any of those tests until his thyroid levels were normal so she tweaked the dosage and scheduled a re-check in two weeks. 

Needless to say, I'm glad I got a second opinion and that the prognosis was much better than I expected.

Thank you so much for your concern and prayers! I will keep you posted in two weeks!

    1. I am too! If I had had my thinking cap on I wouldn't have made an appointment for Monday with a vet who never met Henry. Oh well. I can only be thankful I decided to get a 2nd opinion. Thanks for your concern.

    1. What's even better is that Henry started perking up the very next morning! I had no idea that part of the reason for his lethargic behavior was due to a double ear infection. Poor guy!
