|The only meds that Dad needs to take.|
I also went to the Cat Clinic to pay for Xander's meds; while I was on the Big Island they let Curtis pick up the meds without paying for them. (Curtis told me that it was harder to take care of Xander than it was to take care of Dad. Xander spit out most of the pills and also bit him once.) Today was the last day for the antibiotic Zeniquin 25mg but now Xander will be on another medication, Denamarin 90mg. He also has a new diet, Royal Canin Hydrolyzed Protein. For 4 weeks he will be on these plus 2 prednisolone a day, then the next 4 weeks its 1&1/2 tablets of prednisolone, then 4 weeks at 1 prednisolone a day, then 4 weeks at 1/2 prednisolone every other day, and finally 1/4 prednisolone every other day for 4 weeks. As I taper off the prednisolone, if Xander starts to throw up again, I go back to the last higher dose before he threw up.
When I got back I went to check the mail. While I was there in the front yard I also took some close up photos of the 'olena and mountain apple so you could see them more clearly, they were kinda lost in the background in yesterday's photo. Curt & Lori's neighbor Debbie will be taking the other mountain apple seedling.
The rest of the afternoon was spent going through the rest of the mail; sorting, reading, & paying bills. Although I was gone more days this time than the last trip in early July, getting through the mail was a lot faster.
Happy Birthday to Heavy, Suzi, & Heather!
