Ninja's Vet has called to tell me that Ninja does not have kidney disease.
He does have one enlarged kidney and one shrunken kidney but apparently the enlarged kidney is functioning.
I wonder if other kitties out there have the same??
Ninja does not have diabetes and does not have thyroid disease.
All that is good news, and we are all happy about that. But, we still don't know what has caused his vomiting and huge amount of weight loss.
We have decided to feed extra food to Ninja separately, in the kitchen. He has full access to his regular dry food, Blue Buffalo. But now he has a couple spoonsfull of specialty wet food, too.
I asked the Vet what else the problem could be. He said that cats have tummy problems just like people do, stomach ulcers, for example.
Since he weighs so little, he cannot take Zantac for people and has to have a specialty compound pharmacist to create his medicine.
Fortunately, Ninja likes the flavor and allows me to give it to him without a struggle.
I have been giving Ninja his medicine for almost a week.
He is having less episodes of vomiting. So, I am hoping it is working and he will get better.
