After the vet: update on Zowie
We are back from the vet. The good: Zowie doesn't have a fever, and she has good reflexes, and also has a very good yowl (which the vet found out when she had to get one of the techs to help take Zowie's temperature and stuff).
The not as good: Zowie will get to be on metronidazole for five days (2x day). We have asked for the liquid version because she hates pills, so she won't get to start it until the vet's office can get it in. Hopefully she won't mind the liquid version too much.
The also not as good: Zowie has lost some weight. When I last weighed her (April) she was 3.79kg. Right now according to the vet, she is 3.41kg. I am going to weigh her on my scale to double-check, but that still means she has lost almost .4kg (14oz/0.9lbs). That's quite a lot for a kitty as small as Zowie is.
Does anyone know of any good foods to help kitties gain (healthy) weight? They would have to be grain-free as Pandora would get them too. But we would really love some suggestions. :)
Also thank you so much to everyone for your purrs and prayers!
