You know the phrase “Sh!t Happens”. Well, we had a “Blood Happens!” mishap.
I went to the vet last Friday (February 9). I’ve been feeling poorly occasionally, and I’ve lost 1 pound over the last 6 months. Sometimes I have super gurgly guts that you can hear from across the room. I lose my appetite or vomit a little, and just feel poorly for a day. Since I’m 13+ years old, Mom suspects I’m developing some health issues and wanted to get me checked out.
The vet gave me a thorough exam and agrees that I’m probably starting to have some type of intestinal health issues. He took some of my blood and suggested medications we can use to keep my digestive system calm.
When Mom called for my test results, the vet apologized and said they lost my blood! They didn’t lose the results, they lost my blood!
I’ll go back to the vampire on Monday so he can steal my blood again.
The worst part about having to give blood is that it’s a 40 minute drive each way, so it cuts into my morning sunpuddle time!
I do have some good new to share. Mom found another allergy-friendly food that I enjoy. It’s made by the same company that makes the food I currently eat, but it has more of the rabbit meatiness that I like. Mom’s hoping my interest in this food will make it easier for me to maintain my weight.
