    limping - meloxicam / metacam

    Hi! Thank you for replying! yup i did tell the vet that i’m able to move his limbs without much growling/hissing, he would occassionally pull his limbs away, but definitely nothing like what was seen at the clinic and no aggression. But the vet simply said that cats can hide their pain at home...

    limping - meloxicam / metacam

    Hello! My 3 year old scottish fold has been intermittently limping for probably the past 2 months, on and off, inconsistently. It's usually worse when he just wakes up, and then he walks the limp off, and then becomes okay. It hasn't affected his activities, still the same, he is still jumping...

    Hello! back for updates. He did a hypercalcaemia of malignancy panel. PTH and PTHRP were both very low, suggesting that it is likely idiopathic. The vet seems not to be too worried about his high creatinine just because his SDMA is within range. as for his calcium, she is suggesting a diet...

    I just came back from the vet with his urineanalysis. However.. the vet gave me an unreliable impression.. as the USG values kept changing and they had to keep printing new results for me upon retest. I'm not sure if this is standard practice, but from what i was explained to, they have 2...

    Hi! Thanks for replying. She said his calcium might be a) due to dietary or b) idiopathic. She did ask me why i'm feeding more with freeze dried raw when i already feed high protein cannedfoods (ziwi peak and feline natural) and i was unable to respond.. For his freeze dried raw, i feed lamb...

    Hi! Just wanted to ask, is there any harm if i were to portion out ziwipeak’s canned cat food into individual portions and freeze the portions? Because it tends to smell weird/ not as good by the time im finishing the can (less than 7 days as noted on the can), so im trying to freeze it and only...

    Size of cat

    thanks everyone! i will be sure to get the vet's opinion the next time he goes for a check up. He's turning 2 this coming may! so slightly more than 1.5 years old at the moment! He's a scottish fold, so a mix between a scottish and a british shorthair! he's about 4.6 to 4.8kg these days.

    Hi! This is not a thread to ask for advice or anything, because everything is okay now, but just thought i’d try to get some insight into the confusing mind of a cat. :yess: i was an international student when i got my cat, so my cat was overseas with me for about a year and a half. When i...
