    Arthritis in Cats

    That sounds wonderful, thank you! May I ask where you purchased it? I'll try anything for my girl! She seems to be showing improvement, but she's still on meds and I don't want her on them for the rest of her life. I'd rather go the natural route. Thanks again for your input.

    Arthritis in Cats

    I forgot to tell you that Dasuquin Advanced is what the vet gave us too! The heated beds are the greatest! We have six of them in the house for 4 cats! Wherever they decide to go they have a heated bed! Not too spoiled!!

    Arthritis in Cats

    Wow, this is so helpful. I did give it to her, and it went well. After seeing this I hope I didn't tilt her head back too much, but I did get it in the corner of her mouth and cheek area. She got a treat right after, so she's happy! I'm going to watch her for a while to make sure all is...

    Arthritis in Cats

    To everyone who's been following my post on my Shelby, we did go to see our regular vet today. She said that her hips are in bad shape structurally, and she was probably born that way, but the arthritis has made things worse. She also has arthritis in her knees. So she has put her on anti...

    Arthritis in Cats

    Hi Stephanie! Thanks for asking. I did get her to the vets and she said that Shelby's hips are in bad shape. She thinks that she possibly was born with bad hips, but now the arthritis has complicated things. She gave her NSAIDS for 3 days and I will continue the Gabapantin until it's gone...

    Arthritis in Cats

    Thanks, I plan on reading the articles in the morning before I call our vet. We have 6 of those heated beds for our 4 girls and they love them. They are a great investment even for the other 3 that don't have arthritis! There is nothing I won't do for my girls! Nothing but the best for our...

    Arthritis in Cats

    Thanks so much for your reply! Yes, they did do X-Rays. When our regular vet gave her a clean bill of health, she was referring to senior blood work, etc. I've suspected that she was getting stiff in the hind end for a bit, I've been giving her Glucosamine/Chondroitin supplements in the past...

    Arthritis in Cats

    A couple of days ago my 12 yr old kitty ran to jump on her kitty condo and fell off landing on her hip, which resulted in her dragging her hind leg when trying to walk. We raced her to the 24 hour emergency vet and she was diagnosed with severe arthritis in her hips and knees. They gave her...

    Vet Is Not Sure About My Kitty's Uti

    Thanks again! She's acting fine, so I'm feeling a bit better. We spoke with the vet and she agrees to cancel the Ultrasound and maybe in a month when she's been off the antibiotics for a while, to retest the blood again. I just love these kitties of mine so much, that I worry too much! Such...

    Vet Is Not Sure About My Kitty's Uti

    We got the results of the blood work back. Kidney function is fine everything looks good. Liver function numbers were a little off, but she said that could be even from mouth bacteria, and the plan is to go ahead with the ultrasound next Tuesday. But since then (noon time yesterday) she's...

    Vet Is Not Sure About My Kitty's Uti

    Thank you so much for your input. Shelby is 10. I don't see much blood in the urine now but she still is straining. They didn't tell us how long to give the antibiotics to her, just gave us 2 bottles and sent us home. She's been on it 2 x a day since Sunday evening. We brought her back in...

    Vet Is Not Sure About My Kitty's Uti

    They did see elevated white cells in the urine, but no bacteria, but he said in 20% of the cases you don't see bacteria in kitties with a UTI. He did give me a pain killer which i'm going to give her before bed tonight. She's sleeping now and I don't want to disturb her! Isn't it amazing how...

    Vet Is Not Sure About My Kitty's Uti

    Two days ago I noticed my Shelby was crying a little and going to the litter box and not making a puddle. So we raced her to the Emergency vet and they found blood in her urine and put her on Clavamox every 12 hours and assumed it was a UTI. After 4 doses, one of which I ended up with most of...
