Has your cat stopped eating?

Tommy decided to do that a few days ago. We didn’t know if he was just picky, having switched foods again, or maybe he was having trouble smelling, or generally “What is going on with my cat?”. One of the first lines of defense if your cat is losing their appetite is FortiFlora made by […]

YouCaring for Miss Bailey, a boxer, who needs a new knee

A friend of mine has been working on this problem for a while. Bailey is a very active girl who came into their hearts as a rescue. First one knee went, and then the other. In the meantime, when he was going to work towards putting his puppy back together, she got gravely ill with […]

old lady Mu-Xi Mu

I’ve been meaning to update but my heart isn’t in it. Mu Mu has been having a difficult time. Noticed Wednesday last week that she wasn’t eating her cucumber. I had seen her nibbling about two days before, but not fully eating. So this went on until a very early appointment Thursday morning at a […]

2 more weeks

After Tommy got his cone off, he would make himself bleed while grooming. He wasn’t particularly rough with his nethers, but it was still sensitive. I left a message for the surgeon and a day or two later he called me back. Leave his cone on for two more weeks until his 1 mo checkup. […]

We got the sutures out after his PU surgery

I have a graphic image. It’s his new boygina, all the suture marks, and a mucosa underneath the surgical site that didn’t close, so he’s basically got a new open pocket under his urethra we have to monitor. If it doesn’t start swelling or get infected, I suppose it’s supposed to heal over on it’s […]

post surgical

We picked up Tommy the evening of the 17th. He immediately started fluffing whatever he could get his outstretched paws into, inside the carrier, as soon as he heard us surround him during discharge. The total for his PU surgery was $2400. He peed yesterday afternoon at home. He pooped in the middle of the […]

Long week of medical emergencies

Tommy Gargoyle had a urethral obstruction on Sunday. I caught it early and the ER catheterized him, said he was stable, and sent him home the next night. I stayed up with him most of the night and we slept together on the dining room floor on some guinea pig laundry. He was playful, energetic, […]

My old cat has the coughs again

Stewart has controlled asthma. I have Flovent and ProAir inhalers for him with his AeroKat inhalation device. Amalie doesn’t take to the Aerokat, so she doesn’t get Flovent or ProAir. Instead of getting targeted treatment directly into the lungs, she takes oral steroids every few months for a couple weeks when her coughing fits start […]

Emergency – Tommy Gargoyle

I’d noticed my cat straining in the litter box around 11am Tuesday morning. I thought he was constipated so I broke out the canned food and olive oil. He kept going into the litter box trying so hard and so often that he’d actually laid outside of the box napping there between bouts. I made […]
