    Grain Free + Cardiomyopathy

    Okay – I’m sure this has been discussed. I have my cats on grain free wet food. I’ve met with 4 vets so far during the course of my cats’ life. They all said to avoid grain free food because it’s linked to “heart disease”. I assume cardiomyopathy. One of my cats is a Maine Coon (other...

    Cat Limping - What to do?

    So my original vet has no appointments for the next 1.5 weeks. I'm taking him to another vet that has an appointment tomorrow. Fingers crossed. My cat continues to limp - but he still JUMPS!!! That's a good sign I think. I'm trying to stop him from doing that - very hard. I'm supplied him...

    Cat Limping - What to do?

    Heya, So I have a dilemma. Cat: Maine Coon. 1.5 years old. Over the past few days, when I tried to comb my cat – whenever I opened his legs, he would scream and get violent – I thought it might be PTSD from the past where he got diarrhea and I was cutting the “poop” out and then washed him...

    Is my vet right about the dose of this medication?

    So update: Cat more lethargic + not eating. So my mother is taking him back to the urgent clinic but seeing another vet this time. I told her to ask if they did a urine culture + give mirtazepine 3 mg (maybe?) for appetite stimulation. We'll see what happens. Thank you all for your feedback

    Is my vet right about the dose of this medication?

    The issue is - my mother is in Canada. They only have select vets open and the earliest appointment is like a month away. She didn't want to wait that long and took him to the emergency vet clinic which cost her $$$$. So essentially we are stuck. They made me wait 48 min on the phone before...

    New Kitten Peeing on My Bed - Why??? How to stop!

    @Shower Curtain - Great Idea Getting one now. Right now I have 2 litter boxes (which I clean daily) - they are hooded. I can remove hood from them. But I'm pretty positive he has peed there because the pad (aka diaper like item) has fluid in there. I can replace the pads again (to make...

    Cat Spitting Up/Mini-Throw Ups

    Yeah that's what I told my mother - so she stopped the grain free food 2 days ago - but he is still spitting up - I'm not sure how many days out = alarm. The only issue with a vet check up is... their appointments are VERY far out (Canada - still behind us) at least 2 weeks out. So the mean...
