I am taking two elderly rescue cats to the vet tomorrow for what I thought was a senior blood panel. However, I got an email late last night (I guess now it's morning) telling me what time I could come drop them off; in that email she said she was collecting urine. No mention of the blood test. It was too late to email her back a question or to call (I actually fell asleep early in the evening and then woke up at midnight and saw the email then).
They have both experienced rapid weight loss, pee and drink excessively, have diarrhea, vomit and the female has a very grungy look about her. So I suspect a thyroid issue, diabetes and/or kidney issues. This is why I want a senior panel done. I guess the urine can tell if there are kidney issues but what about the other potential problems?
By the time I get an answer back, I will probably have already spoken to the vet but just in case, I figured it doesn't hurt to ask here.
