Trying to stay warm. The poor unsuspecting sap had no idea he was going to the vet later.
The new vet was very nice and very thorough. She estimates his age between 12 and 14, but for the life of me, I can't remember what she based that on except for his eyes. She said that the amount of fluids I was giving him was akin to sprinkling water on him. He'll still be on the fluids every other day, but he'll be receving a lot more per session. He will also have potassium and B vitamins in his fluid bag. The vet sells the fluids at a even cheaper price than what I found online. He's now on a prescription diet.
Waiting at the vet for his blood test results
His blood test results are the same (well, a shade worse actually). He has a heart murmur, but that's not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself. His blood pressure is perfect.
He's such a good boy. He puts up with the fluids and behaves so well at the vet. He's a big sweetheart, so it's really no wonder we've taken him in and spent heaps of cash on him.
