Hi, everyone. I wanted to give you a quick update on Cooper. Cooper is doing great! He spent 13 days at the vet to get him stabilized. Fortunately, only one of those days required him to go the emergency clinic to receive overnight intravenous fluids. All of the other days, he spent his days at his vet with some of the best professionals that continued his IV fluids, subcutaneous fluids, medications, blood pressure checks and lab tests. Cooper would come home each night and sleep (hence the picture above), and the next day we would do it all over again. Cooper is a tough cat, but he is stable and in good condition now because he has one of best doctors along with the most professional and dedicated groups of techs and staff. They worked on Cooper day in and day out, and the efforts really came through for Cooper! If it were not for Cooper’s veterinarian and the entire staff, Cooper’s update may not have been so hopeful.
Cooper and I are no strangers to the vet. We still make some regular visits for check-ups, lab work, food, and recently training me on how to give subcutaneous fluids to Cooper once a day at home. Every evening before dinner, Cooper is getting subcutaneous fluids to help maintain his kidneys. The treatment plan for Cooper has slightly changed since his kidneys and blood pressure have to be monitored more closely these days. However, I have a happy Cooper at home and his health has been stabilized to a good place!
Now that Cooper is back home and we are getting back to some sort of normal, I am back in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes. So, next week, we will get back to food and new pictures of Cooper!
Thanks again for everyone’s patience while I took time away tending to Cooper!
