Andy’s blood pressure is high-ish still, but more than 50 points lower than last time. Whew! His hyperthyroidism is in check.
I don’t get it since the eye drops knocked the pressure down the first time, yet his eye pressure this time was high. Rebound?
My unofficial “measure” of Andy’s state is he is generally feeling better because he is more playful. He also shows more interest in his surroundings. I feel more comfortable with how he is!!
Glad to hear that things seem to be going in the right direction
Good news on the blood pressure. As for the glaucoma, Rick’s mother had some sort of blocked duct which helps drain the fluid. In her case I think it was scarring from previous eye surgery, but I suppose it could happen in a cat for other reasons. Latanoprost was the glaucoma drops she was on.
Andy has the usual Persian kitty issues with tearing eyes, though he does work at keeping them clean.
Glad to hear Andy is doing better.
Continued purrayers for Andy to get good news – both his BP and his eye pressure in a good range !
Thanks! I hope for best news next time, too.
Playful is good.
Absolutely! Andy never has been exceptionally playful, unlike his late brother, so any playfulness, to me, is a happy sign for Andy!
Mr Andy looks great! I am glad to hear that his hypothyroid is under control.
Me, too. Now, for the other two!
I am glad Andy is feeling better. Which bp med is he on? The AMplodapine twice a day seems to work for my Emmy.
He currently isn’t on any blood pressure medicine and I’m a bit surprised his veterinarian didn’t add that to his care. I guess it must be because three weeks earlier, it was above 200 Systolic!
Very glad he’s better, nut pilling a cat is hard enough, I can’t imagine how hard the eye drops must be.
The trick with the eyes is gentle positioning with one hand while squeezing the eye drop container with the other. Having Persians, I can vouch for eye drops over eye infection goop, which I had to put in the late Dougy’s eyes several times during his life. That was a major hassle for cat and man!
This is great news for you guys! 😻
I’m happy about it!
I’m glad Andy’s BP is better, and he’s in a playful mood. That’s a good indicator!
I agree, Lwah!
Glad to read Andy’s condition is better! Wishing you both all the best, my friends!
At least I wasn’t given a new prescription to give Andy! LOL!
I’m grateful for that!
if your feeling gives you the good news they are there… hugs and power of the paw to you two boys…
Thanks! I am happy Andy’s responding to it all…most of the time.
So glad he’s better!
Me, too. One hates to have the little fuzzy guy not doing well.
Glad to hear he’s enjoying life!
I’m glad he is enjoying life, too!
Yes, its encouraging!
