    I think my food is causing itchy cat

    Thank you!! She said we can reintroduce dry food. They don’t get a lot. I give 1 cup per day for both cats. I have gone back to feeding them the easy digestion chicken and egg dry food from whole hearted. They really love it and it’s what they’d been eating for months before i did transition to...

    I think my food is causing itchy cat

    Romeo update— vet gave Romeo an antibiotic injection for the sores in his legs from pulling his fur out and a steroid injection in case he’s doing this due to an environmental allergy. We ruled out the dryer sheets and fleas (which we knew already but had her check anyway.). But, my vet thinks...

    I think my food is causing itchy cat

    We did try pine litter recently but switched back last week when he started the itching again. What’s crazy is my other cat is having zero issues with anything. Tonight I gave them beef wet food from whole hearted but I have to transition slowly bc they’re both addicted to fancy feast like...

    I think my food is causing itchy cat

    The lysine isn’t new. Both my cats had URIs when I got them at 7 and 12 wks old. They’ve been taking it since for immune Health.

    I think my food is causing itchy cat

    Im hesitant to think it’s fleas bc he was on Revolution and we just stopped in recently. I actually thought the Revolution was the cause of his issues. We are going to forward pics of his legs to our vet and see what they say. He will need to be given a Xanax or something bc he cannot handle the...

    I think my food is causing itchy cat

    Looking for insight... my 1 yr old long haired kitty named Romeo has gone through phases of itching then stopped and recently back at it. I gave both he and my other one yr old cat 3 consecutive doses of Revolution starting in June at the vet recommendation even though both are indoor cats. I...

    Cat Food Deals Forum?

    Why are they discontinuing the whole hearted grain free limited ingredient chicken dry food? My cats love it! I just found it and it’s a great price. I’m so sad! It’s so hard to find a good food. I’m transitioning my cats to homemade food now bc I can’t keep up with all the pet food companies...

    Itchy Indoor Cat

    Yes, I don’t mind stopping the dry food for awhile. It just seems this came on months after they’d been eating this food. I was just reading about limited basic foods for them. I only give them a small amount of the dry food bc I know it’s not great for them and can also dehydrate them. Our vet...

    Itchy Indoor Cat

    Hi All! So my almost 1 year old long haired kitty Romeo is itching nonstop. Both he and my other 1 yr old have monthly Revolution treatment. I’ve never seen a flea. The other cat doesn’t itch. I’m starting to get concerned for Romeo. We went to the vet about 3 months ago bc the whites of his...

    Amitriptyline experiences? -- cat itching and stressed

    My 10 month old kitten is scratching and licking like crazy. Gave both he and my other kitten a Revolution treatment 2 weeks ago. Still unsure if it’s fleas (even with Revolution) or allergies? I did switch up his litter a few weeks ago and we went away for a couple nights. He started itching...

    Cat Enema - when will he be “regular” again?

    It should. I don’t remember bc my cat was in the hospital when we first figured out what she had so they ran a slew of blood panels. But talk to your vet. They will guide you. Just let them know what your concerns are. Every cat is different just like every human. The experience my cat had could...

    Cat Enema - when will he be “regular” again?

    When my cat was constipated often I completely took her off dry food and wet food only. Constipation means they’re dehydrated. Dry food can cause that if it’s all he/she is eating. Make sure they drink lots of water. The constipation could be caused by an underlying health issue like kidney...

    2 Cats W/ Previous URIs

    So the vet did the iodine test yesterday of both eyes and his corneas were clear of a scratch. I haven’t seen the lysine treat w/ the DMG, but I’ll look into those. We have a tub of the powder now to use up. Thank you!

    2 Cats W/ Previous URIs

    Hi!! I hope everyone is safe and healthy!! This is a long post— so I apologize!! I have two 9 month old kittens that I rescued in late October. Both had URIs when I took them home and we treated. Both have been fine since then until last week. One of my kittens, Romeo, started squinting his...

    My kittens had a URI which is very common and usually goes hand and hand with Feline Herpes. It’s basically a common cold in which kittens are very susceptible to getting bc of low immune system. Yes, both kittens needed a round of Clavamox and Erythromycin eye cream bc they also got...

    Cat Enema - when will he be “regular” again?

    Yes, they can tell by bloodwork. It’s good that his came out ok. Kidney disease is a very common issue with older cats. I’m unsure of how old your cat is, but just be aware of it since he’s already had a constipation issue. With my cat, and I know with my mother’s cat who died of kidney disease...

    Help

    I meant that when you brought her to vet she was exposed and got sick bc she was around other cats that had it. I never dealt with feline herpes with my last cat. Just my current two kittens. My vet wouldn’t give me meds the first time I brought them in bc they were so young. I watched them get...

    No, it can’t be transmitted to humans. It’s feline herpes. Both my kittens had it. It’s very common for kittens/cats that come from rescues or shelters, or in this situation, his cat was around other animals that were exposed.
