Suri? Let’s go see a vet. Let’s go! [No!] Let’s gooo You need a medical checkup. Come out~ Getting ready? Ready to go? [Is someone barking?] Let’s go to the hospital. [Butler setting up a trap again] Suri~ Let’s have a snack. Suri. Where are you going? Don’t like it ey? [Going to see a vet?] [Good luck~] [Mom. Why are you in there?] Suri. Let’s go. Suri~ Are you scared? Suri~ Suri? Suri! [Meow!] Hello. How have you been? Hello. Suri is… 6 years and 10 months old She’s a female, could you get her out? Prevously in 2017 October, she had Malassezia infections in her ears, and then, some minor problems in her bronchial tubes. and rest was fine. Ah. Sorry. Staying there frightened? She can stay there. It’s okay. Let’s see you face for a second. I am sorry~ Let’s take a look. Please hold her. For her teeth, minor stomatitis and gingivitis, but not too serious. We can even say they are non-existent. But you should brush her teeth more thoroughly and I couldn’t find any edema or conjunctiva disease Now I’ll take a look at her ears. Such a calm kitty! As you see, her ears are much cleaner, compared to her last visit. Looks good. She even shows her eardrum. Very rare to see from cats. Now these are from more outer parts of her ears, you can see some earwax. If you leave them like this, they can lead to infections so you should clean them often and there will be no problems. Ok. and.. the other ear is clean too. Some earwax, but no huge deal. She used to have Malassezia but now it is clean. Sorry~ Heartbeat sounds okay. Could you turn her around please? She looks scared. Sorry. Scary isn’t it? When you pet or bath her, have you seen any infections or redness from her skin? We have never bathe her since the last visit. We have found something that looks like edema.
Ah. Was it recent? I hope you can check. Ok. It’s generally hard to check cats’ skin thoroughly, since they get scared easily. At home, frequently checking her skin briefly would be a good habit. Ok. Her skin color looks normal. It’s hard to see because of her furs. Those parts are skin. As you see, there is some dandruff but I don’t think they are inflammatory dead skins. Cause for her skin can be like when she grooms herself less or when she is not sufficiently combed. If dead skin cells are more than this, they can lead to dermatitis. Symptoms can be, redness, swollen skin, blood vessel expansion and some pain. So please look for these symptoms when you check her up. Is this because she is over-weight? Cannot groom herself properly because of her size, that can be one reason. She gets oily expecially her back area. Right.
and also, over-weight can lead to tail gland proliferation Sorry. But you know, cats with good personality usually get fat. haha. Sorry! This is the worst part isn’t it? You hate it. Sorry. It will be quick. She is so calm. She is kind. even she has a good reason to be mad. You should look for abnormal things from when you pet her or find some redness-skin when you bath her when doing the checkup. In addition, overweight can cause temporary diabetes. Also, it can cause hormone problems Compared to dogs or humans, being overweight can usually lead to more problems to cats. So check her conditions, check if she intakes enough water and food, check for vomiting and diarrhea check for her appetite, check for limping Let’s measure her weight. 4.98kg. Less than 5kg She gained weight. After quick checkup, some earwax in the ear, minor, non-problematic teeth problems, Little bit of tartar seen, so please brush her teeth more carefully. Her heartbeat and sound from her belly and lung are all good. Although she has some dead skin, her skin condition was okay. and it is recommended she loses some weight. I will take her for x-ray and blood test Please wait for a moment, I will come back when the tests are ready. Such a calm kitty. What an sweetheart. Let’s go. Please hold her. X-ray and blood tests are done. Results will come out in 15 minutes. Suri. You okay? For antibody test, the results look good. Her results in 2017 October, we checked for Panleukopenia virus, Herpesvirus, Calicivirus level 5,4,5 respectively. level 3 or higher is a normal state. The results today are level 4, 3, 3 They are all level 3 or higher so there is no need for vaccination. For her blood test, her total protein is slightly high, her liver and kidney index look fine. She is also little bit high in cholesterol but it’s not problematic. and her electrolytes are ok. For blood cell tests, the results are similar to the last test. White blood index is 4.1 Clinical manifestation is yet to be seen and if you find any in future, please come to us. and x-ray picture is taken, these parts look little bit expanded but I do not see any critical problems or any cause that can make the cat cough. All in all other than white blood index being little bit low, rest of the results look okay. and her body actively producing antibody so no vaccination is required. Thank you for visiting today. Thank you.
She is so gentle. Thank you again. Take care. Good bye. I think she knows we are home. Noticed we are home? Smells home is near? I think she knows. Mom is back~ [Looks like mom..] [You must be exhausted, honey.] [Butler? Let her out!] [Mommy?] Suri~ Come out.
