    Cat Breathes Rapidly When Trying to Sleep

    Agreed. See if your Vet will accept that that video and then they can make a determination if they should see him or not.

    cat eating feathers

    One of mine does the same. I purposely buy toys with feathers because he loves them so much, but I've never seen a feather in his poop. I think they must get broken down in the digestive tract.

    Hyperthyroid on RAW Only

    Is she on thyroid medication? Assuming her numbers are good, and you are feeding her more than required to simply maintain her weight (and she is eating it all), she should gain back some. Of course, that is also assuming she doesn't have any other health issues. If the above is true and...

    Newer cat with worms?

    Here are a couple of thread that discuss medications for tapeworms. I personally have no experience with dewormers so can only refer you to these threads: Please help, cat has tapeworms! Drontal question And this one, post #7 Natural de-wormer?

    5 months old teething or sick ?

    Agreed. While kittens are teething, they aren't typically lethargic and still bounce off the walls playing. A vet visit is definitely in order.

    Constipation in senior cat

    Are you dissolving the Restoralax in a little bit of water before adding it to his food? And are you sure he's getting it all in? It has no odor or taste so should not be a problem adding it to his food at all, once dissolved. That all by itself should really do the trick, at least it works...

    Best food for cat with CKD

    Well I'm glad she doesn't have kidney disease after all, but it IS concerning about the other issue discovered :frown: Did they give her a B12 shot yesterday. That usually helps with the appetite pretty quickly, and I know IBD cats typically need B12. Just in case, here is some good...

    Newer cat with worms?

    Can you CALL the vet you trust and just ask them for a flea med? You probably don't need an appointment for a prescription, just tell them what you are seeing. Did you relocate or something, is that why you have a new Vet now? You absolutely need a Vet you can trust. Maybe ask some friends...

    Best food for cat with CKD

    We never needed to use phosphorus binders, even though some of their food was higher in phos than I liked. But we did feed a large variety of foods, some quite low in phos, so I guess it all evened out. I can't say if not feeding a kidney diet shortened their lives or not. All three of them...

    Best food for cat with CKD

    I've had three kidney cats and always contended that the prescription diets were half the reason kidney cats get so thin. My Vet finally agreed with me (that they didn't need the prescription foods) after attending several conferences on the topic. Aside from that, (at which time we were on...

    Cat diet

    I guess the real question is, before adding in the Renal food, how was she doing on the mix of foods? If she was doing fine, then adding in just one additional food shouldn't be an issue. If she doesn't get the gastrointestinal food, does she then have the bowel issues? THAT is the real...

    Senior Cat Food?

    Of all the cats I've ever had, I've never fed any of them senior food. I just don't feel it's necessary. Personally, I think it's kind of marketing hype. And I have read different articles on it. Mainly the articles written by cat food manufacturers say they need different nutrients...

    Using liquid marshmallow root

    I don't know anything about liquid marshmallow root, although I do give my guys a digestive aid with it as an ingredient. Sorry, I can't even find anything at all on the internet about strictly liquid marmallow root for pets. I did, however, find this thread about it in powder form that you...

    Ringworm

    Every cat heals at a different rate from ringworm. To be absolutely sure, you might check in again with the Vet. They can give you the "all clear"

    Achoo! Cat with Allergies Advice Please!

    I am not giving any of my cats allergy meds, but would like to ask a question and give a couple of comments anyway. Are the injections into the scruff or into muscle? If you gave your diabetic cats insulin shots, I'm guessing that was into the scruff, which they barely feel, if at all. If...
