    Anyone experienced w/ Cholangiohepatitis and non-anorexic fatty liver?

    Happy weekend, everybody. I hope all is well. If you saw my other thread (this), when I took Hima for her annual check-up last April her ALT came 800. 8 times higher than normal range. That month it went down to 500s after only a dewormer and adding a mild milk thistle-curcummin supplement...

    One of my favorite supplement brands BioPetActive is now in the USA

    Hi all, I've been occasionally mentioning their products on here for years now. Starting with Silycumin which I give to my Hima for years for her liver, but also find benefit for her dental issues. I use the brand's multivitamin and DermaCat 0,5, dental water additive on all yard's cats and...

    Some very active volunteers / orgs in Turkey you can support.

    Hi everyone, I don't know why I didn't post about this before but as you may know already, Turkey has street cats everywhere. There are great volunteers who try to take care of them, take them to the vet, actively try to spay/neuter but their job got significantly more difficult when our...

    Does anyone have a guess what kind of fungal infection this can be?

    If you saw my other thread Hima has had a lesion on her inner leg since 2019. It gets worse when she messes with it. Right now the hair grew back there although there is still some scab under. It was not found what it is but allergic dermatitis is one of the options. well now, she has a brand...

    Is this a normal cough? Asthma or something dangerous?

    Hima drank water this morning, ate some wet food, started her yard duty “just looking at the grass”. She started to cough like this, came inside and it’s been going on and off for over half an hour now. I sent the video to her vet, no response yet. Does this look like maybe some grass stuck in...

    Would matatabi powder be calming in the carrier or is this a terrible idea?

    Feliway failed me with my Hima so I’m looking for another option to make the car trip less stressful for her. She totally reacts to matatabi powder but of course it’s with hyperactivity / playfulness. Has anyone tried that or catnip in the carrier? I’m hoping it could make the trip less...

    Hima's Check-Up: High ALT, high creatine. What is going on?

    Good to see the site back, hello everyone. We guess Hima’s age to be 4-6 years old. I took Hima to her annual check-up last Monday. We couldn't go last year due to the pandemic. In June 2019 her creatinine was 1,37 mg/dl. So now, at least two things going on. One is Hima had this wound/fungus...

    How should I go on about Hima's fvrcp vaccine? Any pointers?

    My girl Hima was already an adult/almost an adult back in late 2017 when she showed up in my yard. She had a runny nose back then but she shook it off quickly. She was spayed with no shaved hair so it shouldn't have been a recent surgery. I don't know her vaccine history. If she got her kitten...

    Is this a Profender / deworming side effect?

    Hima goes to toilet in the yard and is secretive about it so I don’t know about her bowel movements. She doesn’t spend much time outside at all though so if she had runny diarrhea I think something would leak in the house which didn’t happen. On Thursday night I noticed a foul odor from her...

    Detective work - whose puke is this? Does it look like blood in puke?

    This morning: I found cat puke on the porch. But not sure which cat's! So this morning I gave my Hima her Gourmet Gold pate wet food. After eating only a bit she stopped like as if something was stuck in her mouth. I was handfeeding her so I know there was nothing unusual in the food. She went...

    Is it OK to mix two dry foods?

    This is for the street cats who lives in my condo. I feed the same 2-3 ones daily so the same cats will eat these. Normally I give them Purina One Chicken. My own cat Hima eats Acana Wild Prairie. I can't afford feeding everyone with Acana but since that has additional ingredients that might be...

    You will be missed, Miss Grumpy the condo's cat

    She was the longest stayed feline resident of my condo. She was a "street cat", but I prefer to call her condo's cat because she was. Usually here most cats live in a street / condo for a while -- days, weeks, months, couple years. Then leave to look for more adventures. Miss Grumpy stayed here...

    A 2015 study on dry food vs wet food on dental health

    Obviously oral health is only one part of health and for overall health the debate is on. And dry food has some bad effects for dental health as mentioned in the same study. Not to encourage or discourage any diet but... I finally made Hima eat mostly wet food. She eats wet throughout the day...

    How much do you socialize with the vet of your pets?

    Do you follow them/their clinic's account on social media? Can they see your social media profiles? Do you have friendly conversations? Do you hang out? Question inspired by a conversation I had with friends on whether it would be better if we got more personified when the vet saw a glimpse of...

    Do you keep the (bedroom) water fountain running at night?

    I caved in and got Hima a water fountain. It’s the quietest fountain I came across but it’s still noisy for my quiet house, especially at nights and Of course it’s reaallly annoying for me. The problem is I cannot put it anywhere other than my bedroom. It would be pointless anyway Hima is almost...

    Is this a weird cough? Sneeze? Alien language?

    I don’t think there is a problem as I recorded it couple weeks ago and no sign of illness. Just for future reference.. Hima made this sound couple times mid-zoomies one dat and again the next day. She went on running around as usual zoomies afterward so I wouldn’t think she had much trouble...

    How does this skin bouncing test score for hydration level? (Video)

    I will show this to the vet too. I took this video in the morning shortly after Hima had her wet food breakfast but I did the test again in the afternoon after she had boiled turkey as snacks and the other half of wet food, and the result wasn't really different. Hopefully video might help...

    Which one of these probiotics to support the immune system?

    I was told by some vets this year because Hima has coronavirus, it would be the best to give her probiotics both to support the immune system and to prevent any potential diarrhea or constipation -- I usually don't get to see her bowel movements as she goes in the yard and is secretive about it...

    One of the strays peed on an abnormal surface twice. None seems to be in pain. Any symptoms to look for?

    There are 3-4 stray cats around my house that spend most of the day here. My own cat goes out to the yard to pee and poop as well. But there are quite a few more cats who walk around especially late at night. AND yesterday a small kitten showed up out of nowhere. One neighbor took him in but...

    What does these contractions mean? Video inside

    At least since January (I don’t know before that) Hima gets at least one contraction like this after every meal. Not when she eats like a treat but even after less than half of a 80 grams wet food. Is this gas? That’s what I see most likely as she seems to be comfortable and back to normal...
