The All Clear

Cagney had a follow-up visit with the vet on Tuesday 1st September.  I nearly cancelled the appointment as he seemed so well but thought it best to take him in case the Ms Exotic Hospital Vet (EHV) spotted something that I had missed.

We arrived on time but there was a delay so we were waiting for about half an hour.  In that time, Cagney was getting more & more stressed.  It was difficult to calm him down with all the different noises at the surgery.  He was even panting at one point.  I thought this would affect his heart rate.

When it was our time, Ms EHV was visibly cheered to hear that Cagney had improved.  She said that just looking at him he looked much brighter.  She asked if he had been vomiting or if he had had trouble flying, which he has not.  His heart rate was checked & she declared it completely normal!  This was a relief, particularly as she said that on the Saturday (22nd August) his heart rate was “through the roof”.  I noticed she had not used that phrase at the time, probably so as not to make my heart rate go through the roof with worry…

As Cagney appeared so well, she said all medicine (antibiotics at this point) could cease.

It is thought he had an infection.

So, right now, we are very happy that Cagney is back to normal, with pink feet, a normal heart rate, normal temperature & the energy to eat, fly & flirt!
