Dear Dr. Carol, I wanted to give you an update on my cat, Samantha. She’s almost back to herself. She’s eating, drinking and all that comes with that, along with playing a little as well as being her same ole’ demanding self! LOL!! I spoke with Dr. Summerlin, DVM here, the Vet that had seen Samantha, his diagnosis was that she had gotten some sort of infection, perhaps from that cat food and agreed that the way she responded to your vitamin supplements and home-made diet that there was indeed no cause for alarm considering her kidney’s at this time, and again, that due in fact to her creatine level being “dead on.”
He agrees that the abnormalities in Samantha’s bloodwork are all explained by her vomiting and diarrhea for four days accompanied with having eaten that recalled cat food for two weeks. Dr. Summerlin is not concerned with Samantha’s thyroid since her Thyroid test was 23 on a 10-50 scale, nor is he concerned at this time about her kidney’s. He approves of your VitaLife supplements and does agree with you that another full battery of blood and urine might be a good idea in about 6 weeks just to follow up with her health.
Forgive me for not getting back with you sooner than this, however, I haven’t been able to get a consult with Dr. Summerlin until just this week and wanted to do that first. I will look forward to your thoughts as usual and your wonderful input, Dr. Carol.
