Re: [FH] Pepper - Good news again!
I am watching her closely. Her routine is coming back to normal so whatever episode she had seems to have passed. At least I know a few things that were potential concerns are really ok.
I asked my vet about a cysto and she said that Pepper was too upset and we could do it another time if it seemed like it was needed. Since her bloodwork is all normal then I can't see why they would have to do it.
Poor Pepper peed on the towels while she was there and I offered to let them wring it out for a test (lol). They declined.
Pepper is always beautiful to me in body & soul!

Hi Sue and Pepper,
Yay for Pepper showing them all!! It's great that all her tests results were excellent. As Leah said not everything shows up in the blood work so continue to keep a close eye on her. Besides watching Pepper's water intake also watch her urine output - how much and how often she goes so you can see if there is anything out of the ordinary. My vet always does a urine cystocentesis right there in the exam room.
So sorry that Pepper had such a rough day. I'm sure Pepper is still a beauty even with her shaved legs!!

- Hurray for Pepper and Sue!! What a great result, and a nice relief, I
am sure. There must be some reason for the change in routine, but
maybe we'll just never know the answer to the question. I know I get
uneasy when Monkey's appetite drops, cause last time it did it was
indication of the fluid building up, but now I have to remind myself
that some days I, too, just don't eat as much! Not that I'm not paying
attention, but I do need to remind myself to allow for some variation,
since she's a kitty, not a machine!
I am very proud of you and Pepper....

The cardiologist said that if she seems "off" and I feel there's still
a concern, then we should do an ultrasound of her abdomen. But her
