Sis and me brought Chester to Thomas Animal Clinic for his annual vaccination that Monday. It was his 6th vaccination of his life. Hehehe… of course he didn’t squeal or yelp. He was helpless because he wore a muzzle. So in goes the needle near his left buttock. He won’t be bathing for 10 days.
Then the vet recommended us to do blood test to screen his liver, heart and kidney (advisable to do blood test once a year). We agreed. This time the needle was inserted at his left hand. Ohhh Chester was so cool.
We waited 10 mins for the result. His heart and liver are OK but Chester need to trim down his protein intake because his Creatinine level (kidney) was at the high side. He got 1.44mg/dl while the maximum is at 1.60mg/dl.
I guess it was my fault. Chester’s kibbles brand is Innova Evo which contains a whopping 42% of protein. While the normal type of kibbles brand contains about 20% to 30% of protein. I didn’t know that too much protein can cause kidney failure. Hmmm…
