Mana having his semi-annual heart ultrasound. Weโ€™ve been monitoring his mitral valve for five years or so. The ultrasound is then sent to the cardiologist in Kailua-Kona. #bullterrier #bullterrierlove #bullterriersofinstagram #ultrasound

Pโ€™ea is home โค๏ธ He was so lovable and cuddly when I picked him up; mostly sedated. Heโ€™s on 3 different medications and doing a lot better but I feel bad that he wonโ€™t be able to run in the yard anymore; only short slow walks from now on although every time I open the door he wants to rush lol. The hardest thing at the moment is keeping him and Luna apart for now since he needs to rest.

Please keep our sweet Jam in your prayers ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿถ. He had a 2nd seizure in 2 weeks so we took him to the ER last night. Thankfully, his blood work came back normal and as of now his condition can be maintained with medication for the rest of his life. We are so thankful for the wonderful doctors and nurses at @verc_hawaii. He seems to be back to his happy, crazy self today but he sure gave us a scare. ๐Ÿ’™

Mom was being super paranoid about a little bump on my leg so she made me go to work with her to get it looked at. Auntie Dr. Jay poked me with a needle and then felt my surgery leg just for fun. No scary mast cell disease (and nothing abnormal, it's probably just my allergies) and my leg is doing great! Mom is just crazy. #crazydoglady #vet #problemchild #dogsofhawaii #dogsofig #rednose #doggyfashion

Mommy brought me to her work today to make sure my feeding tube was still in place - it was. She took this picture right after we got there so I was not amused. But later, after I ate, I warmed up to everyone and wanted chin scratches! @cancerkitties #cancercats #cancersucks #cancerkitties #cancercatsofinstagram #squeakers #calico #calicocat #calicocatsofinstagram #oneeyedcat #princesskittygirl #cat #catsofinstagram

My very special doctor and me today at the hospital!! She is largely responsible for making me better. Not only has she helped me, but she has helped my other brothers and sisters as well. She is the best doctor ever!! #princesskittygirl #verc #cancercats #cancersucks @cancerkitties #cancerkitties #cancercatsofinstagram #calico #calicocat #calicocatsofinstagram #oneeyedcat
And a big mahalo for @theartfuldodgerman 's mamma (aka @fuzzologist )for making me this beautiful collar to hold my feeding tube in place!

I'm still in the hospital - still not really eating so they have to tube feed me every few hours. That's also how I get all my medications. The good news is I am off IV fluids and my bloodwork continues to improve! Thanks for everyone's warm wishes!! ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜ป @cancerkitties #cancercats #cancersucks #cancerkitties #cancercatsofinstagram #calico #calicocat #calicocatsofinstagram #endcatcancer #oneeyedcat #princesskittygirl

Sometimes my work involves making my patients party hats out of bandaging material ๐ŸŒด #vettech #vetwrapart #goingawayparty

I'm still in the hospital - going on one week. I am doing a little better. My bloodwork is looking better everyday. Still not really eating so the surgeon placed a feeding tube which my internist says I will have to have for a couple months because of the antibiotics I have to take. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and words of encouragement!! #princesskittygirl #cancercats #cancersucks @cancerkitties #calico #calicocat #calicocatsofinstagram #oneeyedcat #cancerkitties #cancercatsofinstagram

Little Bit is also still in the hospital, just like @princess_kitty_girl . Her last seizure was on Tuesday. Her doctor tried a trial medication to see if it will help. Hopefully she can come home soon! #cat #catsofinstagram #cancersucks #cancercats #cancerkitties

UPDATE: I'm going on day 5 in the hospital. I'm still not eating and my liver values are still extremely high. I had a feeding tube placed today to hopefully get some food and water in me. I am on a huge cocktail of antibiotics until we figure out what my infection is sensitive to.

SAVING TIKI THE TORTI KITTY: our last night in #honolulu - we went to a famous old and remote tiki bar. But the next 24 hours would be about saving a cat - not having that last mai Tai. ๐Ÿน โค๏ธ We arrived after a 40 min car ride to find the bar closed and our uber driver long gone. In the blackness of the night in this industrial and remote hood - @tsec68 heard a teeny meow. ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜ป This sweet girl with a VERY hurt arm / paw โ€” in multiple places โ€” hanging so badly we thought it was broken or would need to be amputated โ€” was limping toward us and using her wrist to walk (since could not use her paw). She was crying for help but had an amazing temperament and clear will to live. We immediately scooped her up - got another uber - convinced him to let us bring her in the car and take us all to the vet. She cuddled on me, put her arms around my shoulders, and started purring. Didnโ€™t scratch or bite. Possibly the sweetest cat I have ever met. We found #24hourvet @verc_hawaii - where we spent almost all night (and discovered arm not broken โ€” but severe nerve damage). She needed immediate medical attention but was in a little better shape than we thought. We said โ€œdo what you can to help herโ€- and we would cover the bills. The next day โ€” I cried almost the whole way home. I was so worried about what would happen to her and how we could find a home for her and help her, all the way from SF. I called the vet everyday like a crazy person, and found that she eating, resting and melting hearts. She was able to spend the past 6 days in amazing care and love at awesome clinic. She is recovering! ๐Ÿ† HAPPY ENDING! My last call was tonight - where they reported they found her a #foreverhome โ€” she was ADOPTED (and she will be indoors). They thanked us for our big hearts. But we are grateful they have an even bigger one. ๐Ÿ™Œ if @bethostern can do it - - we can all do it too! ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹ Today we celebrate all the #animallovers out there and the #vets and #vettech // PLEASE #adoptdontshop #kittens #cats #tortoiseshellcat #thankgodfor24hourvets #tikithetortie #nocatleftbehind

Little Bit is now hospitalized, too. When mommy was with @princess_kitty_girl in the ER, Little Bit started having seizures. She has had at least 5 in less than 24 hours. Please keep us both in your thoughts, as our mom is taking it pretty hard. ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ฟ #cancersucks #cancercats #cancerkitties #endcatcancer #cat #catsofinstagram

As soon as mom got home from her weekend trip late tonight, she had to take me to the ER. I haven't been eating or acting like myself. I've been vomiting every day and I've lost over 1lb in less than a month. And now I'm a little yellow (icteric). Mommy is super worried about me. @cancerkitties #cancercats #cancersucks #cancerkitties #endcatcancer #squeakers #squeakykitty #calico #calicocatsofinstagram #calicocat #cat #catsofinstagram

Little Bit sleeping while boarding this weekend at mommy's work. Mommy went on a weekend trip and due to Littles' health conditions, thought it was best to keep Little Bit at a 24-hour facility. #cancercats #cancerkitties #cancersucks #cat #catsofinstagram
