    Post Anesthesia For Dental Surgery - Lost Sense Of Smell?

    I just talked to the vet tech and she is going to call in the Mirtazapine. I gave this to Remy once last year when she first started having eating issues and it made her agitated and didn't really seem to help but I'm desperate to get her to eat so I'm going to give it another try. If it...

    Post Anesthesia For Dental Surgery - Lost Sense Of Smell?

    I'm home now and tried again to feed her. I gave her some tuna water and she lapped a bit of that. But she was still moving her head around the plate like she didn't know where the food was. I gave her some of the tuna and and she took a couple small bites. I tried some Fancy Feast chicken...

    Post Anesthesia For Dental Surgery - Lost Sense Of Smell?

    My 16 year old Remy had dental surgery yesterday. I haven't been able to get her to eat anything yet. I tried all sorts of flavors of wet food last night and one this morning. She is hungry and meows as I'm preparing it. Then she moves her head around the plate, even getting some food on her...

    Finicky eater -at my wit's end

    I looked up this thread because I wanted to review what was going on with Remy a year ago. Because she is having major problems again. She went back to normal after I posted this. Normal being that I'd still have to open 1-4 cans but she would eat that flavor for a day or so. We had good and...

    Finicky eater -at my wit's end

    Thank you all so much for your replies!  I knew I could get some good advice here! Remy is eating well today so I didn't give her any of the Mirtazapine,  I went back to work on Wednesday so I'm hoping that those days of only eating spoonfuls at a time was because of the change of routine..  I...

    Finicky eater -at my wit's end

    Thanks for your replay.  I've been searching other threads since I posted this. :)  I know it can take a while for the "right person" to possibly see the thread, so I'm not worried about that.  The vet did not do an ultrasound or suggest one at that time.  And I was more concerned with just...

    Finicky eater -at my wit's end

    Hi all.  I haven't posted here (but read often) since I rescued my semi-feral two years ago.  I got such good advice then, I'm hoping someone can help me with a new problem.  This one involves my 15 year old female Remy.   Several months ago she started getting very picky about what she would...

    Cat has fleas???

    Will didn't act like it bothered him.  Pumpkin may have run because it was just a strange sensation on his neck.  You might put his toys away until tomorrow if he likes to roll around on them.  I'm not sure how long it takes to absorb.  I dosed Will in the early evening and by the next morning I...

    Cat has fleas???

    I gave my cat Will Advantage for the first time last Tuesday and he has had no problems.  Do not wash any residue off.  It will be absorbed by tomorrow.   You might want to wash any bedding Pumpkin has been laying on and vacuum the house just to be on the safe side.  If there's one flea, there...

    switching from Frontline to Advantage - is 3 weeks too soon to do it?

    Thank you Red Top Rescue. This is very helpful information.  I'm going to wait until Tuesday to dose them all.  So far today, I've found no evidence of fleas on any of them.  I'm hoping the ones that had been on my girls, Remy and Summer, this week were affected by the Frontline and didn't lay...

    switching from Frontline to Advantage - is 3 weeks too soon to do it?

    I've told the story here about adopting the cat I'd been taking care of at my work place.  I had dosed her with Frontline a week before I brought her in but my cats had always been inside and never been treated for fleas.  So, of course, we got fleas.  I put them all on Frontline as soon as I...

    introducing a stray/semi-feral to a indoor cats household

    kittychick - I’m so glad you got Flick in!   She is already attached to you so I have high hopes that she will settle in with the family.  How did the vet visit go? I honestly don’t believe that Summer misses outside at all.  From the minute she came in, she has been content.  She’s looked out...
