    Best Clumping Litter In Canada?

    I appreciate your concern, however I do know all of this information about nutrition and have decided to follow my vets instructions, which have kept her healthy for the last 2 years (since the stones appeared) I know that people who feed raw are very passionate about it, but it is my choice not...

    Best Clumping Litter In Canada?

    Unfortunately wet food is something we struggle with here. Aside from the fact that we could never afford to have all 3 cats on wet food exclusively, nor could we find the time to feed them throughout the day as they would require; the cat with the bladder stones outright refused to eat the so...

    Best Clumping Litter In Canada?

    I used to use Maxx cat too. It really was a great litter. I find a combination of white vinager, dish soap and water does a fantastic job of getting the smell out of my boxes. Much better than the Lysol I was using before! The box wipes sure sound handy though! We have one jumbo box. I know...

    Best Clumping Litter In Canada?

    You change your clumping litter box co I've never known someone who replaces their clumping litter once a week. My mom didn't replace hers for like 5 years, so I thought my once a month was pretty good! Thanks for the tips :)

    Best Clumping Litter In Canada?

    I feel like you and I may be soul mates around litter. I've even made a chart to track my experiences so I wouldn't forget and retry the worst of them. I wash and sanitize the box at the end of every box or bag...so about once a month. I also replace the box about once a year to prevent bacteria...

    Best Clumping Litter In Canada?

    The vets so diet, which does increase urine output and I think is closely linked to my issues. One of them gets bladder stones so they all eat it.

    Best Clumping Litter In Canada?

    I'm trying Tidy Cats 24/7 as of yesterday because we came home from the weekend and the box smelled so badly that I had to make an emergency run to the grocery store (the cats wouldn't even go in it). It had had the fresh-4-life Eco Clump, which is a grass litter in it. That stuff clumps well...

    Best Clumping Litter In Canada?

    Hey I feel like I've tried every single litter out there and can't find one I love. Biggest issue is smell since we live in an apartment with 3 cats. All the litters I've tried recently seem to hold the smell even when cleaned regularly. What's your favourite that's available in Canada?

    Bad Teeth And Heart Murmurs

    So, the doc said that he can't hear his murmur anymore, which is strange because I had to take him off of his heart meds about a year ago due to fainting. Theory is that his kidneys just weren't processing them as well. Anyway, the doc said that either he could still have heart disease without...

    Bad Teeth And Heart Murmurs

    I have an appointment for this afternoon. The receptionist says at least they can put him on some pain meds. I feel awful, and fully blame myself for not forcing him to brush his teeth regularly.

    Bad Teeth And Heart Murmurs

    I don't know if you can do extractions without having anesthesia, and I highly doubt he'll survive it. I'll know more once the vet sees him of course. I thought he was for sure dead last year when he was fainting, so maybe I'll be surprised.

    Bad Teeth And Heart Murmurs

    My cat Chester has had a grade 4 heart murmur for many years. He recently was taken off his heart meds because they have damaged his kidneys enough that his blood pressure dropped too much and he was fainting. He's never let me brush his teeth, but the vets never seemed too concerned. Today he...

    Comment by 'sylorna' in item 'Pet Feedster USA PF-10 CAT Automated Pet Feeder For Cats'

    sorry for the delay in responding...don't check this email often.  Currently we are not using it because we are using 2 different kibbles mixed, but it was still working well when we stopped.  the new replacement piece is much better

    Alternatives to s/o index?

    Sounds like we're stuck with prescription. Oh well, it was worth asking. Still better than surgery. I have them eating the dental and weight reduction in the so index mixed now. Thanks for reminding me...I have to pick up some wet food...I accidentally got the turkey stew instead of turkey pate...

    Alternatives to s/o index?

    Fair enough. She won't eat the prescription wet either and is very very picky about wet in general. We're doing more like 50/50 because of it. Seems to be ok as long as we don't do non prescription dry.

    Alternatives to s/o index?

    Hey guys Dynah had some bladder stones last year. Fortunately with the help of antibiotics, s/o vet food, and lots of water around the house we were able to get rid of them and avoided surgery. I tried using up what I had left of her old food about a month ago and she started being uncomfortable...

    first time dealing with crystals

    Hey Everyone! Dynah had her ultrasound done last week and the stones are gone!  The vet said her bladder is still irritated, so she's going to be on the S/O for another month and then moving onto a "maintenance" diet.  She said that it will keep her bladder at the right level to prevent more...
