For some reason the...

    Cats hind legs touch together?

    This is how my kitty stands sometimes. The only thing iffy about his blood work is his potassium has gone under 4. I know that doesnt mean much but the normal range on a CBC is 3.5 to 5.5 but usually should stay at least above 4 and mid range. I'm not sure if this is a symptom of it every time I...

    Hi! My kitty needs to be on this for a month to treat a red blood cell parasite. He was on clavamox recently but got so sick I had to stop (different issue). I've been told this is far more gentle but I still worry. What are your kitties experiences on doxy? He is on proviable so that should...

    Hi! I was wondering if anyone has experience with this and what you did to help the nodes go away!
