This is the end...and then it's not...and then it is... and then?

Our beloved 18 year old kitty Skye was diagnosed with CRF 3&1/2 years ago. We were told at the time it was pretty bad and that he could have months or years left. We opted not to go with the sub q because he is so skittish already, I wasn't about to make his final time with us miserable. We changed his diet and it helped tremendously. He has his downs where we think it is the end, and then her perks up in a week and is back to normal. This last down was the worst and the shortest. [more inside]

My cat may have been misdiagnosed. Time to find a new vet?

Back in July, my 11 year old cat was tentatively diagnosed with possible early renal failure. This past Saturday, however, she had another round of bloodwork and urinalysis...the results of which indicated her kidneys are probably fine! Needless to say, I'm very happy about this. But the more I think about it, the more it seems like the clinic folks jumped to conclusions way too quickly based on too little information. Am I off-base here, or is it perhaps really time to explore other local veterinary options? [more inside]
