2-14-13 Vet Day (Before Visit)

Mommi here. Hijacking the blog a bit.

Happy Valentines Day to everyone and their Honeys. For all the Kitties and other Furbabies: WE LOVE YOU TOO! Love to all, ((hugs)), ((pets)), and {{purrs}} to you too!

Today we take Brooch to the Vet. Doc will check her out. Run some tests. See what's up.  For those that did not see my and Mommy's response to Mommy Trish the other day on the the Bald Spot and Pro Zack post... here it is...

FEB 11, 2013: Brooch was on Prednisone. It seemed that she either got stabbed by part of the Xmas tree or she got overzealous with a bite which prompted the over-grooming. As we noticed it only AFTER we saw a bald spot - it was going on (seriously) for quite some time.

Doc just called and is uncomfortable going straight to Prozac. Especially since she is not a year old yet, she should not have such psychological issues this young and since she shows no other issues like urinating or anything, it is not likely she needs Prozac. Could have a deeper or more serious infection, we'll put her back on Prednisone until we see him on Thursday (he kept saying he was being lazy to say Prozac first (from her last visit when she was prescribed the Prednisone) - but he will go through all the possibilities first.) But she could also have a food allergy. It could also be ringworm. It is not likely, but if it comes to it - then it might come to Prozac.

He is a great Doc, who truly cares for the animals. He will not run us on wild goose chases, but he will be through. It may take a few months but we will figure it out.

Mommi and Brooch are not always good at posting all the info in the initial posts concerning vets - so it may sound wonky when we talk about vet visits. This comment was mostly composed by Mommy that filled in the details. Cause Mommy does all the vet visits and calls :-)

Sorry about any current/future confusion from Mommi / Brooch

I plan to have Mommy write the follow up on this Vet Visit. 

May the catnip always be plentiful and the string never fray,
