FIV Boy has jaw bone infection - do antibiotics work?

I met Mr BC (Mr Black Cat) in my garden ten years ago - he was a stray. I had him neutered (or is it spayed?) and that's when I found out he had FIV. It was the Cats Protection who paid for the operation and they advised that I put him to sleep, but I refused. FF ten years and he has puss in his mou...

Re: Time to say goodbye

In my view, it's best our little darlings be pts sooner rather than later. It's so hard to call it though isn't it? Really sorry to hear about your losses Papacat and Gabby - I've still got it all to come. *hugs*

(Northamptonshire) Large cat needing a holiday from home while my old cat is ill

Hi there, I have an old 19 1/2 year old cat who is in her last weeks. She is tiny and the big boy I have who I found wandering the streets 5 years ago keeps wanting to play games with her. This stresses her out and I need to pack him off (I will pay for his food) for a while. This is temporary becau...

Re: Cat with pancreatitis - blood in diarrhea.

Hi Maria, no she's not on any meds. She is tiny - she was the runt of the litter no one wanted - and for some reason her tummy is super sensitive (as sh'es got older) and she gets ill on meds. Mr Frisky. Thanks. My cat also has IBS. I don't know. She is ok at the moment but last week she had a burst...

Re: Cat with pancreatitis - blood in diarrhea.

Thanks Alan. She is weeing ok - it's died down a bit now. What I'm worried about is one day when I'm waiting for the inflammation to pass, she will have a horrible death and won't recover. I've never heard of a cat having bloody poos on and off for a year and surviving. Actually it's just blood that...

Re: Cat with pancreatitis - blood in diarrhea.

Thanks Kay. She doesn't take well to Metacam (bad reaction). It seems to have calmed down now, fingers crossed. I've just given her slippery elm - have no idea if it works or not as it's hard to know if it just dies down on its own. Stress!!

Re: Cat with pancreatitis - blood in diarrhea.

Thanks. She's had blood in her poo on and off for a year - nothing the vets give her helps - she is very sensitive to tablets and they make her ill. So I normally let it pass. If I take her to the vets there is nothing they can do apart from put her to sleep. Apart from this she is ok. And when it p...

Cat with pancreatitis - blood in diarrhea.

Hi all,

My 19 year old cat has got pancreatitis which flares up and then calms down again. When it flares up, her diarrhea has blood inj it. After a few days it tends to disappear. I wanted to ask - is blood in poo on and off normal with pancreatitis? Anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks.

Hi TCM, I'm glad the search term for Metacam and ataxia (wobbly legs if anyone is searching that) comes up - I was absolutely baffled by my cats wobby ataxic legs. Has your vet mentioned any connection between the Metacam and the wobbly legs? Does anyone here know anything about it? I still remember...

Thanks Bobbys Girl and Janey. I think she might need to go soon (next fortnight) but right now she is so much better than yesterday. I'm finding that keeping her mentally stimulated is helping - I do this anyway but more so at the moment.

Hi Bobbys Girl,

Thankyou. Can I ask you - you made the decision to have your darling pts but HE (Tommy?) took the decision out of your hands? Did he pass over before? Sorry, hope this isn't a rude question but not sure what you mean and my head is all over. Ignore me if its too sad to remember.
