I took Frank to the vet last spring for a blood test to check his thyroid level. I thought then that we wouldn't have to do that for a whole year, because he was doing so well then. But, unfortunately, lately he seems to have been losing weight. I can feel his spine when I stroke him, and his shoulderblades feel really sharp, so I suspect that he needs to increase his hyperthyroidism medication. I also think his pulse is quicker than it should be. All the symptoms he had when he was diagnosed.

So, I have to take him in for a blood test again, which he hates. He used to be quite happy and confident when we visited the vet. One vet even said he was the nicest patient she had ever had. But since his hyperthyroidism was diagnosed, he's become scared of the vet, because they always prick him and draw lots of blood.
If he's in good enough shape, the vet will put him under and clean his teeth, and draw the blood while he is sedated, so that would be easier (though sedation is always a different worry, especially with and elder cat like Frank).
A few purrs would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, many more than a few!!! Multiple purrs from Hobo and Speckles, doggy woofs & wags from Sandy, and the best good thoughts and vibes from me. I know what you mean about the anesthetics, they scare me to death!! Sincerest hopes that all turns out well.

Many purrs and meatloafs coming from the Highland gang. We're all quite anxious for beautiful Frank's vet visit to go smoothly.

Lots of purrs from Hobbes, Selena and Lacey. Hobbes has issues with the vet as well so he sends his most sincere "I hate TED" purrs and Selena sends her best "dental" purrs. Lacey just sends get well soon Frank purrs. I will send human purrs for both Frank and his worried Meowmie. I can certainly relate to the worries you will experience.

Many purrs for Frank to have a very non-stressful trip to the vet.

Purrs to Frank for the least stressful vet visit possible, and to you as well, because we know how worried Meowmies get about their furbabies!

Hugs,
