I've been out for a while w/ dissertation and vet care.  2 Fridays ago, I took 2 cats (my obese ones) and Jess and Leo to the vet.  Everyone had follow ups for health issues except Phoebe the cat.  She had some bad looking teeth and a cut lip, so I had to bring her in to make sure it was fine.  I had the vet and tech to myself.  I had about 1.5 hours booked w/ the vet to see everyone.  Here's my updates:

Leo seems to be recoverying from his teeth surgery all right.  He ended up losing a whole pound in the process.  He still gets critical care every few days to ensure that he's putting his weight back on.  He's back to eating veggies & pellets.  He's also started eating his hay,  sometimes.  He's on a different antibiotic now and will be for a time.  He goes back in a few weeks for follow up re: his teeth.

Jessica still has red pee.  The vet is still concerned b/c it started so close to her spay.  She stated that dissolving sutures can take a few months to dissolve and that there is always the possibility of complications from that.  She is still on antiobiotics and we will follow up in a few weeks.

Max the cat does NOT have cancer!  He did not end up getting his toe amputated and instead had some biopsies taken from both toes and his ear.  Everything was benign and he will not need any future surgeries or amputations. 

Phoebe the cat had to have several teeth pulled out and get a complete dental.  She's lost both canines and a few molars.  She looks kind of funny w/o her canines.  She's on antibiotics and pain meds for a while.  She's also showing pre-diabetic blood sugar levels.  The docs worried that she may be developing diabetes.

The vet gave all my pets a little lecture on how they need to mind "mommy's pocketbook" and get all better.  I think that w/ all my summer vet care, that they will be able to build a major addition on the clinic.  I only hope they will name it after me!

We've missed you Skunklion. Sounds like you sure have been busy! You are wonderfully dedicated to your animal companions and they sure are lucky to have you as their human. I'm sorry to hear about the expense - I can only imagine!

Hello Skunklion! I am happy to hear that you were able to get all the furkids to the vet I am sorry for your pocketbook as well. I know that rabbits are not cheap considering they are exotic. I am hoping none of my buns catch anything contagious because then I'd have to take SEVEN to the vet *eep* Good job on being such an excellent furkid parent - they are lucky to have you!

OH my, that was a full house in that examining room. That's great you were able to get everything done all at once with all of your fur family with no hasseling many shuttle trips back & forth. That's great things are all OK with everyone and keeping an eye on everything, so glad that Max does not have cancer! That must be a relief and I too hope that your fur family is all getting better and going to be easier on your pocket book.

wow, sounds like all the pets are having health issues at once - boy when it rains it pours. i am really glad to hear Max doesn't have cancer, what a relief! Glad to hear Leo seems to be making a good recovery and hope the antibiotics will help Jessica too. Sending good wishes to everybody - especially Phoebe in hope she'll make a good recover and won't wind up diabetic.
