Weigh In Day
Clooney - before his injury he weighed 1004 grams (2.2 lbs). At his follow up appointment to clear him to get back to a full routine he weighed 955 grams (2.1 lbs). Then - after he experienced side effects from his meds he dropped way down to 748 grams (1.6 lbs) - UGH. It's been 10 days since we changed his meds and he is now up to 804 grams as of today (1.7 lbs). 60 grams of weight gain - I will take it. We have a ways to go but at least we are going the right direction!
Theo is my beefy, tall boy - 1120 grams (2.4 pounds) - so thankful he is hearty and healthy or else he wouldn't have been a good candidate for the transfusion.
Finn is my fraidy ferret and somewhat anxious - this causes him to have occasional boughts of colitis. This doesn't seem to be affecting his weight though - today he weighed 968 grams (2.1 lbs).
Violet - TBD - she and Maddie played so much earlier today that they missed out on weigh in day because they are sacked out...
Madison - TBD - see above...
And the kitties - I need to keep an eye on their weight as well - particularly my 3 hyperthyroid kids:
Oliver is my skinny mini - 7.85 pounds today. This is good - up a bit - he was close to 7 pounds flat when we found out he had the thyroid issues.
Phoebe was 12.8 pounds today - if the vet is happy about Ollie gaining weight then he should be throwing a party when Phoebe shows up!
Zoey - 10.55 pounds today - I believe that's up from her last vet visit as well.
Aggie - is has a bit of a round belly but surprisingly she only weighs in at 10.12 lbs.
I did not weigh Emma - she pretty much always tips the scales between 46 - 48 pounds. I did not weigh SteveIrwin - number one - because weighing a fish is hard and number two - what would one do if he was over or under?? The zookeeper did not weigh herself either... :)
