14Oct22: Andy’s new medication…

It isn’t easy being Andy.

This has to be smeared inside the flap of his ears twice a day…for life. Alternating ears, for some reason, is necessary. The applicator is ingenuous, and you turn a knob on the end of the tube to extrude a single dose. The medication is absorbed through the skin, so it is imperative it does not get it on one’s skin if you aren’t Andy!

The condition is hyperthyroidism. Andy will have a follow-up visit in three weeks to measure how well the medication is controlling the problem, one that apparently isn’t that uncommon in older cats.


Happily, Andy has been very good while I apply the medications.
