More Izzy

We took Izzy back to the Vet on Tuesday, she needed to have a blood test to check that the Phenobarb isn't causing problems.  She's had a few fits recently, so we were also wondering if she needed to up the dose.

She's also been losing weight. Fortunately, she had plenty of spare to lose,but it's still not a good thing.  The Vet took some urine to check for diabetes.  The blood was sent off to est for the Pheno and also for hyper thyroidism.

They tested the urine at the lab at the Vet.  The good news is that she doesn't have diabetes.  The other news is that she has a rampant urinary infection!  Poor girl!   The infection may also be interfering with the Pheno, which might partially explain the increase in the frequency of the fits.

She had an injection for the infection, we'll go back again for a follow up in 2 weeks.

We'll get the results from the blood tests on Friday.
