We at It's a Wonderpurr Life are joining Brian's Home Thankful Thursday Blog Hop by being very Thankful that our lovely supurr senior, ChauncieMarie, is doing well at the age of seventeen, despite having kidney disease.
Last Octopurr she was diagnosed, but the vet I took her to wasn't the right fit for us. So I chose another vet a little farther outside our neighborhood and hit the jackpot. ChauncieMarie got another exam and an update on her bloodwork. A little low on potassium, but still at low risk.
She's having potassium powder added to her prescription food, and I am also adding a drop of Kidney Vitalizer in salmon flavor made by Scruffy Paws.
It's amazing how the Good Lord works. Scruffy Paws approached Rabbit on his Instagram with an Affiliate offer. Well, Rab is four years old and in excellent health -- except for behaving like an assrabbit for which there are no pills or drops to cure that disease -- so I chose the kidney drops for ChauncieMarie.
To be honest, she can be a picky little pussycat. So hiding the drops isn't always successful. I swear she was a bloodhound in a past life. She can detect anything out of the ordinary in her noms, and putting anything directly into her mouth is Mission: IMPAWSIBLE. She was born feral, and at seventeen I don't want to stress her. So I smear a bit of Fancy Feast pate over her prescription food to get her to eat and hopefully eat it all.
One drop mixed into ChauncieMarie's food will hopefully keep her perky and incredibly spry despite her advanced years.
