    Adding supplements to IV line?

    The only supplement you can add to a line for sub cutaneous fluids is Vtamin B Complex and Vitamin B 12. You can add potassium but it isn’t absorbed well and you could get into trouble with it. If the potassium is low, you can supplement with Renal K, a potassium oral gel.

    My cat's ALT was thru the roof

    It could have been hepatic lipidosis brought on by not eating for any variety of reasons. In specialty hospital with those numbers, and I assume she was jaundice, there would be additional testing done, hospitalization with aggressive fluid therapy and a feeding tube placed. That’s for starters...

    Signs of a concussion to watch out for?

    Hi. Some outward signs might be pupil changes. Either to big, to small or different sizes. Loss of balance, change in appetite, vocalization, hiding, vomiting, laying in odd positions. Third eyelids being up. There are more but that’s all I can think of for now.

Make sure to feed only canned foods and have several water sources available. Some cats like to drink from...

    What is this on my cat's eyelid?

    I would get that looked at by a Veterinarian ASAP. I have seen things like that become real problems. Best to take care of it while small and get it removed with clean margins and sent in for biopsy.
