Ice goes to the vet today!

ive been nervous about her lately, she's been puffed up more and has a slight tail bobbing going on so i called 3 days ago for an appointment. i was really hoping i could get something sooner, but when she said i had to wait 3 days, gosh ive been a nervous wreck.

She has just been chilling in her cage, i dont want to give her a ton of interaction so she gets round up and something worse can happen. she is still an active little thing though, eating, drinking

its been so hot lately, like 32 degrees Celsius here lately and inside the house its around 28

were all dying, ice has been caught even panting a bit from the heat so i took her to the basement where it is a bit cooler and she cooled off and was fine after that.

she's been taking tons of baths as well

im really hoping the vet visit goes well today, i cant sit still im so nervous

Well the Vet checked her out, heart beat normal, full of spunk( attacking the vet) LOL she said she was breathing fine as well so she just assumed it was the heat.

she weighed 56 grams, pretty sure thats a bit low.

So since ice hasn't had blood work, and she hasn't been fully checked out. We did blood work. And $300 later, I'm flat broke. LOL but it's all for love <3

I'll get the results back later

She said in the next few days.
There were 2 choices, one they could do in the office but it couldn't detect blood in the kidneys($160) and the other one detected everything($205) the one which I did

I'm excited/nervous

So here are the results in my moms words because she texted me the results.

Hi, some of her levels were a little low, but that could be her level. She mentioned she is showing a low monosytosis, which is chronic low grade inflammation, but that it could be normal for her too.

So, they are assuming it is just her level. But if anything else concerns me more, I should call them and they can issue medication.
