    Brushing kittens teeth

    Thanks for all the replies! He lost his top canines the other day so i'm going to get the toothbrush/paste a little sooner. That's the one I found! I'll be getting this toothpaste and infant toothbrushes soon :)

    Brushing kittens teeth

    Thanks for the heads up on the chicken neck - i've always wondered how much to give/what he would actually do with it. :lol: Binx lets me do whatever I want to his mouth when he's lazy/sleeping, hence why I was able to see he had plaque on a premolar. Lol! Hopefully the brushing goes just as well!!

    Brushing kittens teeth

    Crazy that you mention chicken neck, I saw bags of it at the pet store for $3.99 and I wanted to try him with it but I was just nervous because I don't want him to choke on any bones. Is that common? Thanks for mentioning the infant toothbrushes, i'll pick them up first to get him used to it...

    Brushing kittens teeth

    Hi guys, Binx is finally starting to lose his bigger teeth at 6 months old and I noticed on some of his baby teeth he has plaque buildup so i'm going to start brushing them earlier (I was going to wait until after he had all of his adult teeth in). Can I just use a toothbrush without toothpaste...

    I'm really confused about how many calories my kitten should eat!!!???

    I just go by as much as they want to eat a day but I do feed wet food. Mine eats a ton!

    Feeding raw and canned? What to do? Canadian options

    What seaweed calcium replacement do you use? It seems like a lot of commercial raw has too much bone - i'm reading because a lot of recipes are based off of what dog's need. Do you put anything else in the kong? That seems like something Binx would like for sure. He's learning a lot of different...

    Feeding raw and canned? What to do? Canadian options

    Sorry if I seemed like I was all over the place. All this different information is a lot to take in and sometimes I don't know the best way to go about things. I'm still not entirely sure if i'm going to do raw + Freshpet rolls or cooked + Freshpet rolls, I ordered a sample of TCFeline just in...

    Feeding raw and canned? What to do? Canadian options

    I wasn't sure if I should worry about the bone content with the pre-made raw and if it would have a difference if I rotated it with Freshpet. Like, would feeding Freshpet with the pre-made raw almost "dilute" the bone content? Are the cheaper wet foods that are shredded/flaked/chunky that have...

    Feeding raw and canned? What to do? Canadian options

    Hi guys, i'm so conflicted on how I should be feeding my 5 1/2 month old kitten, Binx. He's been eating the Fancy Feast classic line since he was 8 weeks old and I used to add water to it so it was soupy which he loved as a tiny kitten. Now, he's basically fed up with the FF pate. He also eats...

    fluid in the abdomen

    My girl was on Furosemide for 6 months (she had suspected heart failure) and she lost muscle mass and got quite skinny but she was still jumping up and down until she got too frail towards the end. I would try out some wet food if you haven't already, my girl thought that was a lot easier to...

    Lump on shoulder blade after vaccines

    The lump on his shoulder has gone down quite a bit, I can no longer pick the lump up with my fingers, you can't see his fur separated by it, and you can only feel it if you really feel around for it. The vet said it would take 2 weeks to start to go down and that happened a few days after we...

    3 year old FIV+ breathing fast, no other symptoms

    It's usually recommended to count breaths per minute when they are resting/asleep as when they are awake any number of things could be stimulating them or they could be sniffing something. I would say just because i've been anxious about this with 2 differents cats, it sounds okay. I would be...

    Lump on shoulder blade after vaccines

    Thank you for the links. I'm glad he got his last FVRCP but after him getting a lump i'm really hesitant on getting the rabies vaccine since the one they use is a killed adjuvant vaccine and we have never had rabies reported in my province. The vet actually suggested getting it when he gets...

    Lump on shoulder blade after vaccines

    The vet wasn't worried about it, stating that it feels like an inflammation lump and he said it should start to go down in 2 weeks and if it's not gone by Valentine's day or if it gets bigger to call him. He said since Binx is lean it's easier to feel everything and he may have some scar tissue...
