My cat is at the emergency room again

We just went through this a few weeks ago, and the diagnosis seemed like a blanket diagnosis. Dismal said there were things that I should have asked about or insisted on, or that maybe I was just not soaking in all the information. Today has been a very busy day for me, and my head […]

Lily Momma’s Progress

She’s eating very small meals. I’m not hand feeding her much, but I am making sure she at least takes in an extra meal’s worth. I started giving her baby gasX, and I found out from the hand feeding that she’ll take her meds more easily if you place her in an elevated position. She […]

Tommy likes the people at the ER

He didn’t protest even once. They took his blood and even injected subcutaneous fluids under his skin. I had called his regular vet and they said to take him to the emergency room. My cat had been straining in the litter box, and then keeps vomiting under the strain. ER says he’s likely not constipated […]

We’re going to the vet again

Lily’s appointment is on Wednesday in Virginia. She’s my 4(ish) year old guinea pig that gave birth to a bunch of pups a few years ago. She’s never been to the doctor since she moved in with me, and I found out this weekend that she’d chewed the hair off her lower side. This is […]

I keep seeing progress updates showing on my Facebook Memories, and we’re up to the point that he had learned how to flip his soft […]

We went to the vet

I packed up Amalie and Stewart and we trekked to the vet yesterday. Amalie needed pre op for a dental, and Stewart hadn’t been seen in over a year and is on Prozac. Amalie has always wished that we never let Stewart into our home. He’s wild. He moved in when he was approximately 10 […]

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 […]
