    I took a photo of her x-ray shot at the vet's today and marked the disc that doesn't look too well:



    I also got the Renes Viscum today and tomorrow, we'll start the treatment. It's supposed to support her kidneys.

    Cystatin C was 3,3 mg/l (should be below 1,0), but urea, creatinine, sodium, phosphate, calcium and pottasium are all fine, so I hope a chronic renal failure is still far away.

    Thank you! She's fine right now and doesn't seem to be in pain. And Lily is back to her old, happy self. Such a relief!

    Poor Luna was having a bad set-back the day before yesterday. She was doing relatively well over the past weeks, but on Monday, I heard strange sounds from the hallway and when I looked, I saw Luna crawling from the living room. It's been a heartbreaking sight! She came crawling towards me and let me comfort her; after a while, she was able to walk again, but it's still a little stiff-legged, and her hind legs are weak. She's stretching a lot, and often she'd sit down after a few steps, so she's definitely in pain and discomfort! If this doesn't improve over the next days, it's time for her first cortisone shot. I have already spoken to my vet.

    Aww-- so sorry about the trouble poor Luna is having. The cortisone shots should help her a lot, at least I certainly hope so, it's so hard seeing out fur friends suffering...it just does me in if mine so much as feels a bit off the wall.

    Poor Luna!!! I really feel for you both. My knees were so bad last month I could hardly stand let alone walk. I got a cortasone shot and it helped a lot. I hope hers helps her too.
    No matter what anyone does, someone some where will be offended some how!!!!
