    I used it for a few months and it wasn't bad at clumping. I scooped 3x a day, but still small gnats started swarming the litterbox. I didn't like the smell of it either. I just use an unscented clay litter now. My favorite was always integrity cat. But you can only get it on the west coast now.

    As expected, kidney issues after I131

    Thank you so much! I will definitely join so they can look over his results. His water intake increased dramatically since his thyroid was treated. I would estimate a cup every day. He did get 200ml of fluid this past wednesday. The vet suggested 1x week. I also feel like we will have a better...

    That's unfortunate. The only reason I'd switch to the wifi board is to reset it when this happens. I will say, it's a huge plus that everything on the robot is so easily exchanged/fixed. I recently had to replace a part on my robot 3. They sent me the part and it didn't void the warranty for me...

    As expected, kidney issues after I131

    He's already a month post i131 treatment. Which uncovered his kidney deficiency. His phosphorus level was normal. His bun and creatinine were elevated, but she was mainly concerned about his urine specific gravity and his symptoms. He's been drinking a LOT of water and he's sleeping a lot more...

    I have heard that as well. Some say b12 stings and if you put in the fluid bag, then the whole bag going in will sting. But i will confirm with the vet.

    Thank you so very much for sharing your story and the adorable video of Win. Just a beautiful kitty!. Being that he's in supposedly early stages, according to the vet, i am just going to continue his normal food and supplement him with fluids and pray i get 6 more years like you did with win

    As expected, kidney issues after I131

    Thank you for that info. My vet was more concerned about his specific gravity and that he's drinking a tremendous amount of water every day. I have been to Tanya's website. It's overwhelming and I notice she doesn't recommend a raw food diet, Which my cat has been on for years. I certainly don't...

    As expected, kidney issues after I131

    Thank you! I am leaning toward this. His BUN has always been normal, until this latest bloodwork. But i knew it was a possibility after having his thyroid treated. His urine specific gravity was low as well. I've never done subQ but he's altogether a pretty compliant cat, so I'm willing to try...

    As expected, kidney issues after I131

    So, as expected, my jack has kidney disease. He had his one month blood work post i131 treatment. He'll have another blood test in 60 more days for a 90 day i131 follow up. His thyroid level is within range now and he's not yowling *as much* and is eating pretty good. He's gained 3oz, but he is...

    Good to know! So, let me ask you, if your robot gets stuck halfway around, does it notify you and you can reset it through the app? A few times a month, i come home to find the robot stopped either halfway or completely upside down, orange light flashing slowly and one of the cats has peed on...

    Yeah, i would have chosen that if it was available. The veterinary school that did offer that has closed their hyperthyroid section of the hospital down since covid hit and have never reopened. Really makes me angry. His dose was 3.49mci. His dose at discharge was low enough that i didn't have...

    What's maddening is that we have a top notch veterinary school here, but their Hyperthyroid treatment center has never reopened since the whole covid thing. Other areas are open, just not this one. Makes me so angry. The only other places in driving distance don't do the scintigraphy.

    Hi, No, He's not panting or anything like that. Just wondering what other people's experiences were with the therapy and time of seeing a change. No masses, just overactive thyroid. I don't know the dose, they just said it was small

    Weird how different batches can be. I found dr. Elsey's to be very dusty. But it also didn't clump very well in the litter robot. When i pour in the frisco brand, i get no dust cloud at all

    Cat keeps losing weight after ultrasound, GI Panel, fine needle aspiration which looked OK.

    Was his free and total T4 checked? Hyperthyroidism?
