Noos from the vet...

Hello everyone... Well what a day I have had.. They bundled me in the box early this morning and I have only just got back.. Mum will tell you all about my visit.

We took Jasper early this morning and were told that it should not be too long but if  we hadn't heard by 2:00 to call in. Well we were hoping that like last time we would get a call in a couple hours to say come get jasper. We waited and waited and as the clock crept round our hearts got heavy with worry...What was taking so long... At 2:00 I called and was told that Mr Brown our vet would call us back asap. We got a call back to say we could collect Jasper at 3:00 but we had to pick up extra medication and Jasper must go back next week. Well we were now worried.. At 3:00 on the dot we were there and were told the outcome of today's tests. The kidney levels  were OK which was one good thing but Jasper's blood pressure was very high at 280. They did it early and then waited and did it again but still very high. Mr Brown was worried about this and has prescribed yet more medication to try and bring this down. Then next Wednesday they will take it again. I asked could stress have caused this but they think it is far too high for it to be stress caused. Mr Brown has been called away to an emergency so he will ring and talk us through later when he is able.
  So just when we thought all was well we are back to worrying and going back and forth to the vet.. Hope the  tablets help and Jasper gets back on track..

    Thank you everyone for all your purrs good wishes and comments because they help a lot.. Carol xx
        Purrs and hugs to all   GJ xxx

I didn't even know we kitties could get high blood pressure. I thought that was just a thing for peeps and whatnot. Hope you're feeling better, buddy. Make sure you take you meds when your peeps want you to so that you get all healthy and stuff. Okay? purrs

Old Kitty said...

Oh GJ!!! :-( Me and Charlie have everything - every paw and finger and limb - crossed that the meds get your blood pressure down! Awww poor sweetie!! We are so glad you are home now too - rest and be brave and please please get better beautiful GJ!!! Take care

Oh purrs GJ--I hope you get to feeling better. I would think that this would raise your person's BP though.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Oh dear, that is not so good, GJ, but we think meds can do a pretty good job of regulating bp. Our Dad has bp issues and he takes meds every day for it. Paws crossed for you to be OK.

We are glad your kidney levels are okay Jasper. We hope the new pills bring your BP back down. Could it be connected with you feeling a bit under the weather on Monday? We are sending you lots of purrs, and (((hugs))) to your mum and dad.

Marg said...

Well darn it all. Well it is a little setback but nothing terrible. WE feel sure the medicine will work. Wonder if they take in consideration that he is at the vets but you said that it isn't from stress. i always thought it was hard to get a cat's blood pressure but I could be very wrong.GJ, we are sending so many purrs, we know your blood pressure will go down. Wonder if the appetite pill makes the pressure go up?? Anyway, guess you will get more answers when you talk to Mr. Brown. Thinking about you.

Oh, you poor brave boy. Just know that we are keeping you and your folks in our prayers.

GJ, along with your Mum and Dad, we will hope and purr for success with the bp pills. Mom' gets white coat syndrome when she goes to HER doctor!! But take your meds, as it is important for lots of reasons not to have high bp. So glad your kidney levels were good!!

The Island Cats said...

GJ, we're sorry that your BP is too high! We hope that medicine helps bring it down. Like the Chans said, we've heard kitties with kidney issues can develop high BP, but it can be treated. We're purring for you!!

Fuzzy Tales said...

GJ! Ugh, we're sorry your BP is up and that you have to go back. Mega-loud purrs to you, that the pills lower it to an acceptable range and that your results are much, much better next week.

Kitty kisses to you and hugs to your mum and dad!

Lou Belcher said...

I suppose it's logical that they take kitty blood pressure, but I hadn't heard of it before. The boys are sending you purrrs all day.... Hope Jasper recovers his stability quickly.

Cats, just like humans, can have a multitude of problems from high blood pressure including blindess. My 18 year old, Angel, lost her sight and did not regain it due to her blood pressure.
One way you can tell if his pressure is high, is if his eyes are dialated and don't go down. It might give you a way to keep an eye on it at home. Ask your vet about it first and make sure none of his meds can cause dialation.
God Bless and Good Luck!
I will be sending Jasper extra prayers!

Poor baby, poor everybody, especially when you have to wait for word from the vet. All that can do is have everyone worried sick.

Anyway, good furriend, we're here for you should you need a kind word on your behalf to the Man upstairs..

We are purring very hard that your blood pressure will come way down, GJ! I hope the new medication the vet gave you will help lower it.

It's very good news about your kidneys though.

I'll bet it's the vet himself who causes your BP to rise. Wouldn't be surprised at all.

We love you GJ!

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

We are sorry to hear of your hypertension, but we thinks the medicine will help you, so be a good kitty and open wide, hahameow. The Cornell vet school has a wonderful video that explains kidney disease and why it often makes the BP go up. Here's a link to it:

Bellen said...

What a blow after things were going so well. But it seems like something that can be controlled, so hopefully with new medication Ginger Jasper will be feeling good again. We all want to see pictures of him on roofs and eating heartily. Good luck, Ginger Jasper!

Random Felines said...

oh noes......we are sending extra special purrs (wonder if there is way you could check it at home??)

Kari said...

We're so sorry to hear about your blood pressure. But we are glad that the vet found it and will be able to treat it. It seems we Persians seem to have HBP. Our kitty brother, Austin, a Persian, lost his vision due to HBP. They always hoped his retinal detachment would resolve after his pressure was controlled but that was not the case. This all happened before we adopted him. But the point is, on his blood pressure medication, he lived
many happy, comfortable years with us. We know you
don't like pills, but these will really help you. You are in our prayers, darling. We send our hugs and support to you and your wonderful mum and dad.

Oh handsome boy, I am so sorry to hear about your blood pressure. I have been there myself. The pills took it down for me and they will for you!!! Good to hear your kidneys were OK!!!
