    Very low glucose level in cat’s blood test

    Hi my 2yr old 10lb cat had a vet appointment back in Jan. for Dermatitis (no solution for dermatitis yet) but she got her first blood test done, and the vets wouldn’t send me the paperwork. 2 months later and I just now received them literally at 11pm at night and her Glucose level was noted...

    Update on Feline Dermatitis (No Improvement)

    Thank you for the suggestion! I will look into the foods. Unfortunately, the roommate thing can't really be avoided. He was a bad pick and we didn't really know much about him before moving in. We've already had to drastically ask him to change some of his habits because of how bad it's been...

    Update on Feline Dermatitis (No Improvement)

    The vet didn't offer or mention anything about an antihistamine or anit-anxiety treatment. She doesn't seem to be stressed at all, just itchy. And her daily routine hasn't changed much at all.

    Update on Feline Dermatitis (No Improvement)

    We moved to a new city last April and I'm wondering if it's environmental because she's never been exposed to year-round warm weather/tropical pollens. If it is a food allergy, someone else suggested switching to a Rabbit only diet. She's on a duck/lamb diet right now. I will look into getting...

    Update on Feline Dermatitis (No Improvement)

    Hi all! I had posted in here about a month ago because my 2yr old female Tortie, Liza, is having a bad bought of dermatitis on her lower back/tail base (with fur loss also on her front left leg). The dermatitis started in mid-December and has since escalated (and kind of waxed/waned from good to...

    Diagnosed: FIP but does bloodwork show Anemia only?

    This may not be helpful at all, but for the anemia, there is a pet supplement brand that makes a Liquid Iron for pets called Aminopets. I’m from the city they’re produced in and the vet talked about their Hydrocortisone for my cat’s skin irritation. I ended up getting a different spray that was...

    Cat With Dermatitis… Can’t find fix :(

    I’m glad to hear those are helping! I’m currently using the HomeoPet Skin & Itch relief, Vetflix Allergy & Immune Support, & Purina ProPlan Sensitive Stomach and Skin Food. I also recently got a Liquid Collagen & Vitamin C supplement but haven’t used it yet. Those three seemed to be working for...

    Cat With Dermatitis… Can’t find fix :(

    I’m not sure. The vets I spoke to were disinterested in seeing her because she can’t be held. None of them offered to prescribe a sedative before seeing her first. I believe you can buy gabapentin without a prescription but it is very expensive and she’s super picky about what and when she eats...

    Cat With Dermatitis… Can’t find fix :(

    Well, I’m glad that the allergy testing seems to be something pet owners agree on as being unhelpful. She’s clearly irritated by something and the skin is only flakey when she reopens the scabs, so I’m not sure if it’s the scabs that are bothering her or the spot itself. She did cause the spot...

    Cat With Dermatitis… Can’t find fix :(

    The spot has only been there for a month. I’ve been watching it since I first noticed the hair was thinning and started trying to treat it immediately.

    Cat With Dermatitis… Can’t find fix :(

    Hi all. I’m new here and was excited to find this site. I’m currently a distressed cat mom because my beautiful 2 year old Tortie has developed a small patch of dermatitis. I will say, I have not taken her to a vet. She has extreme anxiety and had to be sedated while she was sheltered to be...
