BC the cat & Qula the dog
I decided to end the year on a couple of similar case studies that show how resilient dogs and cats can be if given a chance. My mum’s cat BC has just turned 21 years old and I have been treating her for renal issues and mega colon since she was diagnosed with Kidney Failure when she was 16 years old.
She is truly amazing and very active for a 21 year old but at the beginning of September she had a stroke and was very weak down her left side, staggering around and being unable to stand for any length of time. I was worried that this was going to be the end, but since she was not in pain I decided to get her onto some good heart supplements and see if she would eat.
She ate her food well and she could still urinate so I decided to see how she would go over the next few days. I have to say she is amazing, she managed to get up onto her couch the next day with a step in place and over the next 2 weeks she started to get stronger and now apart from a tilt to the left side when she walks you would not know she had had a stroke.
A month later Qulas mother called me to say Qula had just had a stroke and she was wondering if she needed to put her down. I discussed my cat and asked her if she was happy and eating, which she was so we decided to get her onto the heart supplements and see how she progressed over the next few days. The same thing happened with Qula, with her eating well, being interested in everything that is going on at home and the park, but she has had very weak back legs for a number of years so we have struggled to get her walking again. But Sonya is going to keep working with her as she loves swimming and can use her legs when in the water and she looks so well again you would not know she had suffered a stroke a couple of months ago. Animals never cease to amaze me with their resilience and determination to just get on with life. It is a true honour to be able to work with them.
