What’s in there?
I hadn’t taken Edward to the vet before, so I didn’t know what to expect–he didn’t even need to be held when he had his temperature taken, but he hissed when he got shots in his flanks. He got a cortizone shot for his tail, in his scruff, but that didn’t bother him. The techs liked him. He weighs 12lbs 8.5oz.
Sukey came in at 15lbs something but she was weighed in her carrier so she’s probably pretty close to Edward. The vet was awesome–he put a towel over her when she got her shots then he picked her up around the middle and spun around while he felt up her belleh–it confused her so much she didn’t have time to swat. He said she had a heart murmur, and even graded it a five out of six, though that was maybe shaded a bit by stress. It’s not good news, but she doesn’t have any fluid retention or coughing, and there’s not much that could be done for her–elective surgery is right out, and if she ever needs to be sedated it would have to be done in a way that doesn’t stress the heart, but otherwise…it’s just a thing.
We’re home. Sukey’s a bit skittish but Edward’s hanging out in the window like nothing bad happened.
