I love our vet. He is quirky and interesting.
I made David take Stanley to the vet because I did not want to be the one to truthfully answer the questions of just how long this cat has been gagging on his own fur. Since Rebecca, AKA The Informer was going along, I knew that she would spare no details of Stanley's pathetic retching and tell Dr. K that I have been ignoring his hairball distress for weeks.
So David and Rebecca brought Stan to the vet where the following things happened.
Stan was weighed. Verdict: Morbidly obese.
Stan was diagnosed with a hairball. Verdict: Add bran to his diet
Dr. K gave Stan an anti-inflammatory to soothe his inflammations.
Dr. K gave Stan acupuncture to realign his kitty energy.
Dr. K gave David acupuncture because Dr. K and David are kindred kooky spirits.
Results: Stan continues to retch, I am trying to figure out how to get my cat to eat more bran and David wants to make weekly visits to the vet for acupuncture.
