Of course she had a waiting-room-cure. By the time we arrived at the vet, Cannoli was symptom-free. She even obliged in giving a clean urine sample. Honestly, I'm relieved - no infection, no sludge, no blood. The thought of having another bladder stone prone pig made me sad. Cannoli did produce a bit of loose stool, so we were sent home with some flagyl for a few days.
I may be less than happy with Cannoli's thyroid progress, but Dr Holmes was thrilled. She noticed Noli's coat was softer than before - a sign that the medication is working. I pick Noli up at least twice a day, but the change must have been gradual enough that I missed it. So the meds are working, bit by bit. I was told to increase the dosage again.
In the last week there's been no more whimpering, no more blood and I think... maybe? there has been a little weight gain. Cannoli had dropped into the 790s for the last week or two, but she's been creeping up to 820s all week on the higher dose of methimazole. If she manages to stay like this a few more days, I may have to break into a happy dance.
