If no IBD prior, it makes me think it is not intestinal lymphoma, but just my opinion.
It does sound like cancer of some form, but it is important to know if the blood slide shows small or large cell. Small and you may have a chance at helping her. At least slow/stall it's...
It's important to know whether it is small cell or large. I also want to ask if she has been diagnosed with IBD before these recent vet visits.
Leukeran is very well tolerated, in fact I saw no side effects at all in my girl.
Leukeran has excellent effects on small cell, not so much in lg.
My first thought is it may be a fungal thing going on with her paw and will only spread further if not treated asap.
Unless there are other areas that you see starting to do the same, she may also have been exposed to some unknown substance that caused this.
More likely a fungal infection than...
I tend to agree, it does not appear to be the type of rash cats will get from a food allergy.
BTW, advantix is absolutely for dogs only, it's very dangerous and deadly to cats.
I would bet it's an infection, leaning a bit more towards fungal but can be bacterial too.
So good to hear from you! :wave3:
Well now looking at his pic I am choked up and teary eyed, with a smile.
I love being able to have helped save his life. What a wonderful handsome boy he's become! So glad you kept him, he's special for sure. It was close at one point too, he was outgrowing his...
Thanks @Norachan for calling me.
I hope the OP is still reading this. I have a cat rescue group and wondered where you/kitty are located.
I may be able to help.
Don't be offended by the reactions of members, we are all great cat lovers and have endless compassion for them, and he is not...
Yes the 8 ml is a general guideline more for minimum requirements. It's surprising the number who think the baby will stop when it's full or gets squirmy and end up malnourished.
The key that overrides all of it is the daily weight gains.
Whatever the amt is that it takes for a daily gain of at...
I'm so glad she is still with you.
Part of her unseen issue will be an extreme intestinal imbalance, caused by the state of cold/starvation before getting her, then whether her tiny brand new organs were in a state of fully functioning after that trauma and able to digest the milk given then...
catsknowme You know me well enough to know that giving up is never an option, and clearly you are giving it all you've got.
My posts sound rather grim at times but I have seen so much I just hate to give false hopes. A situation like this is not a good one.
The fact is, whether this baby makes...
You need to careully clean that gunk out. Just as a vet will do, take a tissue over your finger and place a dot of alcohol on it and hold the ear tip up, dive in and swipe the ear out.
Revolution btw is topically applied but actually is absorbed in liver and why it works for a month.
The oil works well and if it doesn't take care of the problem then an enema with 50/50 warm water and oil in a small 1.0 ml syringe no needle of course, insert the tip end in to butt and push the plunger. Within a day or so they will poop. If not repeat once.
It is very common for babies going...
I don't have a good feeling about the outcome for this baby, I'm sorry to say. I could be wrong too, but whoever spotted them the first day and left cold and without milk for so long would have unintentionally sealed their fate.
It would not be unusual for the baby to hang in there for a couple...
Actually it's caused by coccidia, an intestinal parasite and needs ponazuril (by far my drug of choice) to get rid of it. The key word was jelly-like.
NOT carrots or beets.
Very common for shelters to have and spread, as well as herpesvirus/rhinotracheitis.
