He is also in the midst of an URI so the vet decided to put him on a round of Azithromycin, even though she had reservations about it possibly causing stomach upset.

    Pardon my ignorance....phosphorous

    How do you calculate percentage of phosphorous? For example, if a food has 214 milligrams of phosphorous per 100 calories, then what is the percentage? Do you simply divide the calories by the phosphorous in milligrams? Thanks.

    Mirataz Sedation?

    No, he was not sleepy before we started to use it. Just very low appetite. My vet had mentioned weaning him off of it after a week, so I am going to do every other day for a while. Of course, if he needs it we will continue to use it.

    Sub q fluids different types

    Normosol R is what my vet recommends. I am not liking what I read about it possibly stinging or burning. Is it better than Lactated Ringers or different in some way? I have no problems with the needle stick, but my sweet kitty starts complaining when the fluid starts to flow. I warm the bag...

    Very anxious about possible adoption

    I have a 13 year old Himalayan. His brother was with us since birth but we lost him about two years ago to cancer. Since then we have been a one cat household. The remaining cat had a period of being depressed and not eating after his brother died, but is doing very well now, although I think...
