    My FIV+ cat has stomatitis and needs extractions, how much does a full extraction typically cost in rural Kentucky?

    He is 3 and 1/2, a healthy weight, and recently neutered, by the way. Outside of this mouth issue, he's generally in good shape. None of the vets I call and ask are willing to give a general estimate.

    Getting cat's blood work for anesthesia tomorrow, will it pick up on any heart issues?

Sometimes he breathes a little fast and excited, mainly when awake. His sleeping breathing patterns are normal. Are these indicative of heart issues in my cat? I...

My cat was diagnosed with FIV last year, with the reason being I brought him into the vet being that he had ulcers in his mouth. Recently, when I went to the vet, I was told his gums had been receding...

    LeeLee's Urinary Issues

    He has FIV, but other than the recent cystis, he seems to be doing fine. He is a healthy weight, and has a good appetite, sleeps well, and has a lot of energy. When I took him to the vet for a full checkup a month ago, they said his gums were receding some, and last summer, he did have mouth...

    LeeLee's Urinary Issues

    I took Lee-Lee back to the vet for a checkup on Monday for hus UTI and crystals, and as now, he no longer has bacteria or crystals in his urine. He still has inflammation and mild occasional bleeding, the latter being dealt with his by an anti-inflammatory medication, and a few other supplements...

    LeeLee's Urinary Issues

    Anywhere from a week to ten days. She said him not getting his anti-inflammatory enough is likely a reason why it's taken a little longer too. he has missed a few doses, as I said. He's hard to give medicine to, as he will sometimes go to ridiculous lengths to avoid it.

    LeeLee's Urinary Issues

    It seems up and down. He had been on anti-inflammatory meds before, but was out until today, and missed a couple doses, sometimes because he'd move his head at the last second and they would end up on the floor. Will those missed doses affect current dose's effectiveness?

    LeeLee's Urinary Issues

    He is fast asleep now. Tonight though, I did notice what I thought was dripping blood after he urinated. Is that just part of a UTI? Like I implied before, in some ways he seems to be getting better, in others, the same.

    LeeLee's Urinary Issues

    I will. His appetite better now I noticed. In between the time of me making the original post, and this reply, he's eaten quite a bit of his food in comparison to before and is comfortably laying down grooming himself, not a grooming focused on his groin area, but a full body grooming. He was...

    LeeLee's Urinary Issues

    Is it normal for a cat with a UTI to have a poor appetite? My cat who is currently being treated for a UTI currently has a low appetite. He has no lethargy or pain when applying pressure to any part of his body, however.

    I took him to get the antibiotic shot. It seemed like the best option at this point.

    LeeLee's Urinary Issues

    My 3 year old male cat has a UTI and crystals that need antibiotics. I have two in syringe form for him, but after the first time, he refuses to take them, as he now fears and hates the syringe. He also won't take them on food any more, either. He will eat otherwise, but once he thinks the food...

    3 year old FIV+ breathing fast, no other symptoms

    Over the last couple weeks, I have noticed my three year old FIV+ male cat, breathing faster than usual, mainly when he's awake. After he falls asleep comfortably, and 5-10 minutes go by, his breathing rate goes down. He isn't showing any other symptoms, and has a bigger appetite now than he has...

    Took cat to vet for through testing. Vets suspect he has FIV

    Does the fact he had ulcers mean it progressed a lot? Or is just a more minor thing associated with FIV? He's doing really good now though, eating and drinking plenty, energetic and upbeat.
