Jade comes home


Jade had another trip to the vets for a follow-up visit. This time she had to stay overnight for observation and then go for x-rays in the morning. She wasn’t very happy going in the first place and staying overnight was probably the last thing she wanted.

We found out that she has a stone in each of here kidneys. She’ll have them for the rest of her life unless we remove them with surgery. The surgery cost a small fortune so the vet has recommended we slowly introduce her to a wet food diet to help her breakdown the stones or at least keep them from getting any bigger.

We may have to start a fund for Jade if surgery becomes her only option. We’re hoping she does well with her new diet and we have no more worries.

Poor Jade. She was happy to be home, needless to say, but she’s been yelling at us for the past few days for putting her through all that. She’s been getting some extra attention to help her feel better and yesterday she stepped outside to enjoy some beautiful sunny weather. Oh, and she love her new food!

Jade acts out of character and boldly steps outside to enjoy the day.

Jade could sure get used to this.

This is way better than being stuck at the vets
