A couple of weeks ago I got stuffed in this thing again and hauled off to the v.e.t. Drats!
M was concerned cuz I was coughing and sneezing - again - even after a second round of yukki antibiotics. Now I was only caught coughing and sneezing a couple of days out of 4 days - not bad right!!
Well, the v.e.t. lady suggested an X-Ray of my lungs to see if they were clear. They were, but when she came back in, after consulting with her partner, she said I might have an enlarged heart. She wanted to send the X-ray to a specialist in another city.
Yesterday she called M and said the radiologist felt my heart was not enlarged, but it was fat that was showing up on the X-ray! CAN YOU IMAGINE - ME - FAT!!! Of all the nerve! I can't help it that I like to eat. M has had me on a diet, so I'm already restricted, have my food measured, and no more open buffet! What more do they want!
A friend suggested we do the electrocardiogram anyway. When M talked to the v.e.t. lady today, she said we could do that, but there is nothing there to warrant one. She said kitties with heart problems seldom cough like a doggie does. She told the peeps to watch me and call her if I start coughing and sneezing again. She thinking maybe Asthma.
Whew - fortunately I haven't been caught sneezing or coughing in almost a whole week now. I'm really going to have to hide in the closet when I feel one coming on.
