Leonard had some dental tartar scraped from his teeth (always a two-person proposition!) plus some blood work done too. The dogs and cats who qualify as "senior" or who have ongoing medical problems have blood panels done yearly (or more often if needed). It was Leonard's turn, and he took it all in stride, purring the entire time!
Results came back for Leonard on Saturday, and he's looking great! He has early kidney disease, which is to be expected at 17 years old. The values are low, however, so coupled with his heart disease, everything's manageable at this point. He actually looks better "on paper" than he did last year!
