Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope your day was wonderful.
I have to apologize for being so lax in updating Gizmo's illness. We have been so busy with human dr. appointments and life in general.
So ..... we only have to take Gizmo to the vet every few months unless we see that he is going downhill. His bloodwork wasn't good when it was done last Friday, but the vet says there are other things that will affect it. As long as he is eating, drinking, peeing and his activity…Continue
Gizmo Update: Had bloodwork this morning. Not great, but not terrible. His BUN was 78.7 and his Creatinine was 6.2. On Sept. 18th (his first appointment) the BUN was 116.9 & Creatinine 5.9.
