Tired

I don't know what's wrong with me these 2 days, but I just feel very tired. I don't feel like getting up in the morning, I don't really feel like getting up to beg. I just wanna lie there and rest. I'm so tired that my legs seems weak as well.

Yesterday while walking over a drain cover, one of my back legs slipped into the hole of the cover. It was a pretty large hole, it was dark, I didn't notice and my leg just went through, although I have walked past the same place countless times. And I don't feel like struggling to get up. I just stayed there and waited for my M to prop me up.

My M's starting to get a little worried so she's bringing forward my vet appointment. I was supposed to remove my stitches on Thursday, but we're going this evening instead.

I hope they find out what's wrong with me and give me the correct treatment.

Herbie
can u ask your M to check with the vet if your unwillingness to move is due to arthritis?

Oh no Herbie,

So sorry to hear go aren't feeling well. Our Mommy agrees with Joey...you might have arthritis. Mommy's Samantha had arthritis and she had to have cortisone shots that would make a feel much better.

When Mommy says the rosary tonight, we will get her to add your name to her prayer list.

hang in there.....Just us

I suspect hypothyroidism. Have u done a T4 test to check for hypothyroidism? The thyroid glands are at the neck area.

Fatigue can also be due to low adrenal hormone or addison disease. Check the Sodium/Potassium ratio, normal between 27 and 40. If below 27 then is Addison disease, if at low normal then it is adrenal fatigue (insufficient adrenal hormone).

You make me worried Herbie.

Herbie said...

thanks guys... my M decided not to change my appt coz tonight it's the vet that she doesn't like on duty. The one who operated on me is not around in the evening.

Joey, mona, jacks & toby: she'll check with the vet abt arthritis

lynx: I'm not sure if I've done a T4 test. But I have done a comprehensive blood test and everything was normal. She'll check with the vet on what you said as well.

Lynx said...

Reading the bloodwork is an 'art'. Sometimes u need to combine a few parameters to tell a 'story'.

Can u ask ur M to calculate the sodium/potassium? Juz use the Sodium parameter divide the Potassium parameter. My vet (the very well known one) overlooked bcoz the individual parameters were in the normal range too.

Herbie,

If I am not wrong the normally blood tests do not include thyroid tests. Maybe you should also ask your vet do they conduct a full panel thyroid tests. Btw, recently has you lose alots of hairs?

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Oh Herbie...I hope there's nothing wrong with you coz to me, you sound like you're getting weaker & weaker by the day. You're only 7 or 8 years old so I don't think this should be happening to you now. Please ask your M to find out what's wrong with you soon ok?

Love licks,
