My little buddy Oscar had a vet appointment today. He's 14 and needed shots and the vet talked me into blood work since he had lost some weight (we had switched him to an indoor kitty food a few years ago and the start of the weight loss coincided with that). Well... he has hyperthyroidism. High normal is 4.7 and he is a 7. Vet says he's in pretty good shape otherwise (needs a dental cleaning) and he should respond well with medication. We all know how fun it is giving a kitteh a pill everyday, right? And, being a maintenance medication, he'll be on it for the rest of his life. And he doesn't have RX coverage so my co-worker suggested I use this special county program that discounts for residents and pets (20-60% off retail). So that got me thinking, mother in law declined her Medicare Part D coverage during the last open enrollment so, as a cancer patient, she has no RX coverage (not sure if I had posted that or not). So I signed her up as well. I'm the favorite in-law today.
