I took Wilbur back to the clinic in Burlington last Thursday for a blood pressure recheck. In the photo our internal medicine specialist, Dr. Tanya Donovan, is holding Wilbur while vet tech Katie applies the blood pressure cuff to his leg.
The good news is that his pressure has started to come down once we changed the medications. He was at 160, down from the 200 or so we started at. But Tanya wants to see him at 140, so she increased the dosage and we will recheck in a couple of weeks.
I also had Widget along for her annual "geriatric" screening, and I'll provide her update next time.
