Cleo's Progress

One Cat's Struggle with Feline Hepatic Lipidosis

You can't keep this cat down!

I took Cleo in to the vet again this morning, and this time — finally — they were able to get enough of her urine. It turns out that the urinary tract infection is completely gone now; the vet told me to finish out her antibiotics — about a week's worth — just in case, but she’s fine.

The vet also said that a recurrence of hepatic lipidosis, or fatty liver, is rare, which I am relieved to hear. Seeing that the condition is more common in overweight cats, it's probably because once they've recovered they're not overweight anymore. Still, the vet recommended that I have blood work done on Cleo again in a few weeks, to make sure that her liver enzymes have returned to normal. I had already been thinking of it myself, so I readily agreed.

I should also mention that Cleo is now hopping the baby gate regularly. She still gives the dog a wide berth, but she seems to be fairly comfortable being in the same room as the dog.

Cleo says, "You can’t keep this cat down!"
