    Fleas! What is working for you now?

    My vet called and said Frontline and Advantage haven't worked in awhile now, the fleas have developed immunity. She recommended bravetco (topical) as being the best. Revolution plus as working fairly well, but not great. Natural does not work AT ALL. It doesn't freeze here, so we have...

    Fleas! What is working for you now?

    The newest versions of Frontline and Advantage II have quit working. I am in TX and the fleas are back in force. I am considering a Seresto collar for the long haired cats and ordering Revolution (from the Australian site) for the short haired cats (5 total, 2 long, 3 short haired). Thoughts...

    Fur loss

    Since the cat is perfectly happy, do you all think I should pursue more testing, especially since it may not tells us anything?

    Fur loss

    Thanks. The vet did not do any bloodwork. The vet recommend trying trazadone, but I am not seeing an anxious cat, so I opted not too. Additonally, this cat is the hardest cat in the world to pill, so the act of giving him medication would likely traumatize him more than anything else going on .

    Fur loss

    Thanks for the reply. No, we have not seen him over grooming or licking more than normal. He does not appear stressed or anxious, he is our most confident cat. We have been trying to integrate a neighbor cat into our household and it isn't going well, but the hair loss began 9 months ago and...

    Fur loss

    My 7 yo cat has been losing hair for 9 months. I posted on this site a few weeks ago about him, he is currently recovering from Horner's syndrome (cause unknown). He's had two vet visits for his fur. At the first visit the veterinarian felt like his hair loss was alopecia, which was uncommon but...

    Third eyelid showing, no scratch visible

    My 7 year old (one of 5 shelter cats of various ages) has had his third eyelid showing across half of his left eye since Tuesday of this week. He had a vet appointment for it yesterday since it wasn't getting better. The vet said no scratch was visible. He noted that the eye was not dialting...

    Cat with clear mucus poop

    Cat appears to be all better now. The vet has no idea what caused him to be so sick for 24 hours, but he seems to be back to his normal self. Thanks!

    Cat with clear mucus poop

    Today my cat began vomiting and passing clear mucus poop. A trip to the vet revealed a clear abdominal x-ray, no fever, no other signs of illness. Vet gave and antinausea shot and sent us home Science Diet Biome food. Kitty will not eat other than a few licks of the food (new or old). He has...

    Cat Will Not Eat Following Injury/surgery

    He continues to get around well and is eating normally. He has mastered the platforms/ramps we put up so he can get on the furniture. We are still keeping him contained to bedroom unless he is supervised to make sure those sutures are safe. The last hurdle for him is poop. :) He hasn't had a...

    Cat Will Not Eat Following Injury/surgery

    He is much, much better today. Cruising around the house, learning to climb on ramps, and most importantly, eating. He gets several supervised visits outside each day and loves rolling in the dirt and swatting at bugs.
