P: strongly recommend T4/FT4 testing for hyperthyroidism- p is in the age range, and shows some signs associated with it. It is a treatable disease that requires lifelong medication and monitoring with bloodwork and UA, but carries a fairly good prognosis once controlled. Sometimes treating hyperthyroidism can unmask underlying kidney disease, but hyperthyroidism if present should always be present. Any concurrent diseases are managed while trying to keep thyroid under control.

Blair A1090499 is a middle aged dark chocolate brown/black DSH feline who was picked up after his/her owner passed away. No one was able to keep Blair and brought him/her in. The person who surrendered Blair wasn’t the person who put him/her into the carrier so her/his behavior is unknown from them.
During intake Blair allowed to be pet in the carrier and to be scanned (-). When I attempted to remove him/her from the carrier Blair began to low growl and give a long meow as well. I placed the carrier into the kennel where Blair then walked into it on his/her own. Blair allowed to be scanned (-), collared and taken pictures of. He/she was moving around a bit and attempting to jump off the back drop table which is why his/her pictures aren’t great. Blair didn’t seem to mind being picked up/held (but still does his/her low growls, meows) and was placed into a kennel with ease.
