    Interstate Kitten

    It's fantastic to get this update! I haven't been on this site too much lately, but I clearly remember this thread and the poor baby eating rocks on the highway :( I'm so glad to hear she is doing so well in your family! My guys LOVE greenies too, one of my boys especially so...anytime it...

    Pyrantel Pamoate Dosing Question/Problem

    I bought the "horse" tube of Strongid at the tractor supply store.  You can save a lot of money doing it this way (esp if you have multiple cats or strays/ferals that you care for).    To properly dose this Strongid for your cat, you need 3 things: - your cat's weight - the concentration of...

    How should I feed my emaciated stray cat

    Bowie looks great!   If at all possible, see if your vet offers the Purevax rabies vaccine (it's the non-adjuvanted vaccine).   The risk of vaccine related sarcoma (cancer) is much much lower with the non-adjuvanted rabies vaccine.    Other than that, you'll need to get her the FVRCP vaccine...

    I don't have any personal experience with this, but I am very interested in what others have to say - my first hunch, after researching medical marijuana for myself, is that it would be perfectly fine as an animal supplement.   I can tell you this - all of my cats really enjoy munching a fan...

    Bargains & coupons

    Thanks for posting these!!   I was literally just at Petco a couple hours ago tonight, and they're having a big promotion for Canidae products - wet & dry! They're offering triple Petco reward points for any Canidae dry food purchase, and I think something like $4 off if you buy 15 3oz Canidae...

    Let's talk about rabies in cats - is your cat vaccinated?

    I live in Ohio and as Denice stated above, there is no state-wide law requiring vaccination of rabies.  However, there is a legal order in certain particular counties that mandate vaccination of rabies for pets, but I don't live in one of those counties.    I vaccinated each of my cats for...

    Irritated bald spot inside leg

    Yes, I definitely agree.  If it hadn't shown signs of improvement within a couple days (or if it looked like it was getting infected) I would have definitely gone to the vet.  But, at least in person, it looked like a scrape or a claw-mark from horsing around.  It's so difficult to know when...

    Irritated bald spot inside leg

    Just an FYI in case anyone else ever sees a similar spot on their cat: Ended up not putting any ointment on it, and ended up not going to the vet either.  It healed up perfectly fine on its own and it is now fully covered up by fur!  So I guess it was just a scrape or maybe a scratch from too...

    Irritated bald spot inside leg

    Do you guys think the red streaks look like teeth or scratch marks?  I don't have a black light, so I can't test that out.   It just doesn't look like ringworm to me after having viewed a whole bunch of cat ringworm pics on Google Image.   It looks like a scrape or something otherwise...

    Irritated bald spot inside leg

    Hello everyone! I saw something on the inside of one of my cat's back leg that worried me - it looks like spot that he has irritated and made bald and raw.  I haven't noticed him over-grooming himself in that area (although I suppose it's possible while I'm at work or something - but when I am...

    Cat vaccine reaction

    Did they give her diphenhydramine (benadryl) for the antihistamine? If so: It is a fairly short acting antihistamine lasting around 4—6 hours  per dose. The maximum sedative effect of the drug occurs between 1—3 hours. but to give a more exact answer, need to know the weight of your cat and...

    Frustrated, going through the ringer!

    Bless you for helping poor Willow - sounds like her previous owner certainly did not care for her properly.  I'm amazed they dealt with a cat in heat for all those years, notwithstanding all of her other health problems!  That's unconscionable that she had not seen a vet prior to you & your wife...
