Wordless Wednesday Snooze

Our Festive Doodle of the Day:

Black Cat Christmas: Day 2

Our Tip of the Day:
Yesterday we discussed some of the potential symptoms of heartworm disease. If your kitty or pup is showing signs of potential heartworm disease, or if you have any concern of the disease for any reason, of course schedule an appointment for them to be seen by their veterinarian as soon as possible. Discuss testing with the veterinarian, and of course ask questions as needed to understand the process. Keep in mind that there is a relatively simple heartworm blood test for dogs. It is recommended that this testing be done at least annually, or as needed. That being said, testing for heartworms is not as easily done in cats. We will discuss this a bit further tomorrow, but typical blood tests for heartworms do not always offer as definitive results in cats as they do in dogs. In cats, a heartworm antigen or heartworm antibody test can be done. Another option is to have imaging done, such as chest x-rays. Though not always simple or easy, as long as you and your veterinarian work together, it is possible to determine if your kitty has heartworms.

Astrid, we like to sleep under the tree. But we guess you might be too big for that. :)

Astrid looks so comfy. Very cute drawing. And excellent tip, I plan to have a chest x-ray done on Sammy in a few months. I am waiting because it takes them 6 months to mature.

This is one of my all-time favorite "doodles" you have ever done. Another one that would make a totally darling holiday card. Astrid looks as if she could care less about Christmas. Hugs, Janet
