Sponsor Animal Update:
Scarlett: 3rd Quarter 2011
This quarter’s update features Sponsor Program cat Bonnie. We are happy to report Bonnie’s thyroid profile and results were within the normal limits. Her resent blood work was also normal. Unfortunately, she had a seizure in the cat carrier on the way to the medical center to have her routine echocardiogram. Luckily, the volunteer who was transporting Bonnie knew her history and immediately got her in to see a veterinarian. She recovered quickly, but this proves what we already know – our Bonnie does not do well with any change. Right now she is still being monitored in the medical center, and she has not had another seizure. Her Phenobarbital level is within normal range, which means the dose of medicine is accurate to control the seizures. Her echocardiogram has been rescheduled to be done before she is returned to the Cat Room so as not to upset her again. Once the veterinarian reads the test results she will be released back to the Cat Room.
