    Specific question about administering liquid meds

    Not asking for alternative options for administering meds/supplements, been through them all. You name it I have done it. I've looked at every 'how to' video out there. So, bottom line is this: Meds/supplements must be syringe fed to Feeby. So, please just answer, if you can, the question I...

    Elderly lady with health issues - & flea treatment

    Long post (apparently, I can't do short ones :rolleyes2:). Feeby (17+ yo) has been battling fleas for much longer than I would like to admit. Let me start off by telling you what I have been doing so that is 'out of the way' regarding suggestions. We have repeatedly used Advantage II...

    Phos-Bind for Feeby - questions

    The bottle of Phos-Bind (Rx Vitamins for Pets - 35 mg powder) states that their scoop is 1/4 tsp and equates it to 250 mg. There isn't an ingredient out there on the internet measuring tables that correlates 1/4 tsp to 250 mg, so I am assuming due to the consistency of this powder, I need to...

    Commercial Pet Food Database

    I saw this database mentioned a while back on the CKD io forum/group and kind of forgot about it. Is this something anyone here would be interested in? It is easy to sort by various categories, including brand. You can supposedly provide information on foods you don't see on the current chart...

    H-T/CKD cat owners - thoughts please!

    I am in a mental struggle about Feeby's newest blood work numbers. And, with little pro-active support from the vet, I need some additional thoughts from others who know what I am dealing with. Currently: Feeby's number are - Creatinine 3.0 (range 0.6 - 2.4), Phosphorus 6.0 (range 2.4 - 8.2)...

    Questions to pet rabbit owners

    Hi. Not sure it is the same for pet rabbits as it is with what I assume to be 'wild' rabbits, but I have some questions. We have had a rabbit frequent our fenced-in back yard off and on for a while now. Today, she spent the entire day in the yard, and you could see her white belly hanging...

    Liquid famotidine - OTC? Compounded?

    I cannot get my vet to agree on treating Feeby's potential nausea with anything other than famotidine to start with. Does anyone use an OTC liquid version? If not, have you had it compounded/flavored into liquid through a pharmacy? Feeby (17+ yo) has H-T (currently being treated with...

    Certain search links broken?

    I've had this happen before, but never thought to report it until today (DUH!). I will search for an article using key words I know are in the title, but on some occasions, I get a message - Oops! That page can’t be found. If I then scroll through the section that I think the article is in, I...

    More Mirataz questions

    Feeby has been on Mirataz - 1/2 dose every third day - since 11/9. Until recently, this dosage schedule has seemed to make a difference to the point she has maintained her weight - without side effects. But her eating is decreasing again and is not always picking up with a new application. It is...

    Howling, but only a couple of hours mid-day

    Feeby (17+ yo) has recently developed a new 'behavior' that I cannot imagine relates to pain, or even dementia. She is routinely howling from around 12P - 2P daily. Never in the morning, never the evening, never at night. It's almost like 'clockwork'. There is no correlation with litter box use...

    Another 'possible lymphoma' thread - Feeby

    Hi. I have read through so many threads about IBD and lymphoma, but still need to ask specific questions related to Feeby's case. She is 17+ yo with Hyperthyroidism and early CKD. She has been through two ultrasounds (8/24 & 12/7), and the only change was mildly enlarged mesenteric lymph nodes...

    Arthritis supplements - other than Cosequin or Dasuquin

    For two-three years Feeby gladly ate Glyco Flex Plus, and then she started rejecting it. I purchased Cosequin and after just two weeks she won't eat any food/treat/baby food meat if it has been added to them. I have yet to try Dasuquin, but I read a few articles that suggest there are more...

    Mirataz or other transdermals - ear cleaning??

    Hi all. Feeby has been receiving Miraraz every other day since 11/9, she gets 1/2 dose (0.75") each time. And, it has been working great, she has been eating better and even has gained some weight. That is, until the last 2-3 days. Her eating has dropped exponentially. I asked about this on...

    Famotidine for possible nausea?

    Back with more questions about Feeby (~17 yo) who is hyperthyroidic and probably in the early stages of CKD. I sent a detailed email to the vet Feeby is currently seeing. In summary, I explained: Intermittent inappetence - but no vomiting Weight loss after being stable for several months...

    Anyone else's cat hate Cosequin?

    Started Feeby on Cosequin sprinkle capsules in early September, but she will no longer eat anything that it is sprinkled on/mixed with. Previously, she gladly ate Glyco Flex Plus chews for over two years, but stopped wanting them. I suspect the green lipped mussels in Glyco Flex got to be too...

    Cyclical eating habits with CKD/H-T and/or pancreatitis??

    Feeby seems to be cycling between days of eating great and days that are not so great, rebounding and then relapsing...repeat, repeat. Is this common for cats that have fairly stable numbers for both H-T and early CKD? So far, none of the vets have seemed to think she needs 'extra' help just...

    Dental care for a ~17 yo cat – no teeth cleaning/no teeth brushing ever, and not possible now

    To expound on my thread title, Feeby is ~17 yo and recently saw some additional vets for second opinions – totally unrelated to her mouth, and one vet noted on the exam report that she has periodontal disease at a Stage 2+ rating. She is not a candidate for teeth cleaning, because of the...

    Slippery Elm for possible nausea

    I really don't know if Feeby is nauseous or not, but she is so very picky about her food nowadays. For her 'breakfast', which if it is a food she likes, she will eat 3/4 of a 3oz can within a couple of hours. But, after that, she sits in front of her food bowl during the afternoon, I guess...

    What else besides FortiFlora?

    Feeby's eating has been waning, regardless of what I feed her. Been through all kinds of pates (that is all she will eat). Tried adding all kinds of broths/bisques and they only go so far. Also, have tried Party Mix treats (with bacon, because she loves bacon), but that only elicits an extra...

    Anybody have luck making pate (not puree) from canned chunky foods?

    Feeby only likes pates, but that limits her food options. I tried using the Magic Bullet blender, but all I get is soup with meat lumps in it. She doesn't like the soup consistency nor does she like the lumps. I am guessing there is no such blender/mixer out there that will eliminate the...
