We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules. A year later and she is still a small looking cat but in reality she has doubled her weight and size. He will also eat a small amount of hardly cooked fresh liver a few times a week. I would question the vet’s advice. I will look into it, but my kitties are… After several weeks this frequency may be reduced to 1-2 times daily or even 1-2 times weekly to maintain control. While isolated from a kidney, the cell line has characteristics of a fibroblast.

They have had shots, which I am told only relieves the symptoms, not a cure. The problem may be, actually, that your vet is in an area where people are often not willing to DO testing, etc. Thanks!

Years ago when I plugged one in for Oliver when he became so aggressive after his surgery and all my cats started to act like they did feel good. We go to pick up Johnny and we don’t even get to talk to the vet.

Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum. I turned this off and his bloody sneezes have stopped. It could also be an upper respiratory infection, which is contagious to the other cats, but not to the horses (I don’t know if it’s contagious to dogs). I noticed a sore on his neck. I have video there of Amy and other CH’ers I have come across. Could it be dust stirred up from my mom cleaning that caused this??

No advertising in the discussion forums. The foster Mom said that she estimates that the risk with the orange boy is no higher than it would be with any shelter cat or cattery cat, or indeed, no more dangerous than taking a cat to a cat show (which I do regularly). I’ll keep you posted on developments as they come, and thanks to this forum for letting me vent! And even if worst comes to worst a blind cat is still a happy cat..

He had secondary glaucoma. There’s no redness, or swelling, just a little goo throughout the day. The thought is that antibiotics will prevent a secondary bacterial infection from setting in, but in reality, this is very rare. Entire males DO wee on everything except the litterbox. Initially they had a four week course of Ronaxan (doxycycline), but one of the cats was impossible to tablet, so he had AB injections (on the vet’s advice). We are currently waiting on test results for parasites which we should get this week. It is also possible that your cat has feline herpes virus, or a combination of herpes virus and secondary bacterial upper respiratory infection.
