Another trip to the vet...

Hello again. Today we had to take our inside cat Zoe, to the vet. It's never very pleasant when you think one of your animals are getting sick. Well, yesterday we had noticed that she was kind of mopey and stuff. She had just been laying around and acting like she didn't feel very good. So at the time, we just thought she was tired or hot, cause it was like 500 degrees yesterday, so we didn't think much of it. Well we passed out around 3:30 in the morning and woke up about 7:45. We sat and watched TV for a bit, but we both noticed that she was still kind of tired looking. So I was like, "Do you wanna take her to the vet?" And LaVaughn was like, "Yea." And then I said "Even if she isn't sick, we could get her vaccinations." So, I called Fredericktown animal hospital and asked if they could get her in. Well, after being on hold for like 5 minutes, the lady finally said that they could get her in around 2:45. So, we were both happy about that. Then around 9:40 this morning we were both still so tired and decided to take a nap. Well we got up at 12:20, took showers and proceeded to the vet. Well we got there and thankfully, we got our favorite vet, Scott Mier. Well, he looked at her and felt of her everywhere and said that he couldn't find anything that was really wrong with her. So he gave us the option of having a urinalysis done. Cause he said that when he can't find any physical symptoms, that a lot of the time it's a UTI (urinary tract infection). So, he ran the test and figured out that that's exactially what was wrong with her. So he put her on Clavamox. One dropper full, twice a day until gone. Well we were both relieved that that's all it was. He also said that they couldn't do her vaccinations while she had an infection. So we'll have to put that off a couple weeks. Well I guess that's about it. - Megan
