Re: Jaundice

I got the follow up blood test results from the vets today, and everything is now back to normal.

She's been acting fine for the last two weeks. Fingers crossed.

Re: Jaundice

Acting almost normal friday and today so far, eating a fair amount, going outside, rolling, scratching fence posts etc. Vets today said jaundice and temperature has gone - the inflamed pancreas was squashing the bile duct, so have to go back for more bloods in 2 weeks. Gave her a jab to replace 2 of...

Re: Jaundice

She's back home now, with 4 pills to take per day! Has to go back on saturday for a check up. Let's hope it gets better. She's certainly much different from how she was earlier in the week. Has been eating loads of Royal Canin, but has gone back to sleep now.

Re: Jaundice

Thanks for all the support. She was anaesthetised while they gave her a scan and an ultrasound today, and fortunately there were no signs of tumours. Apparently she had a blocked bile duct and pancreatitis. One of my others had the latter three years ago and was fine within a week. I hope hers is th...

Re: Jaundice

The vet said she has a scan tomorrow to see whether it's an infection/cancer etc. The blood tests indicated her liver is quite inflamed.

Jaundice

Hi. Two days ago one of my cats started hiding away. Yesterday I took her to the vets and temperature was normal, no obvious signs of anything, gums pink etc. The vet said try feeding her for another day and bring her in if she's not better tomorrow (today). Very little food eaten yesterday, no wate...

Re: Anyone ever find blood in faeces?

Hi. I've noticed blood on the fur behind the bottom of one of my cats this morning. At least I know who it was likely to have been in october.

Do you think I should take her to the vets?

Behaviour has been normal ever since then, as I've been keeping a dairy.

I'd get a vet to check her out if worried.

Her mother is a black and white moggy (also in my househol...

Re: My cat keeps waking me up really early and sleeping all day

I normally leave my back door or back window open slightly when they are out and don't want to come back in at night.

Almost invariably they are back in and on the bed just when I've settled down, and have to get up and close the door again.

Thanks for responding Janey.

I was immediately expecting the worst, but, if occasional, doesn't seem uncommon.

Are the likes of Whiskas and Sheba grain-rich, I wonder?

I found some bright red blood on top of some diarrhoea two weeks ago in the cat tray. It could have come from any of the three cats, so I've been checking each one after they go (when I'm in) and haven't noticed a recurrence. The internet seems to suggest it isn't that unusual, as long as it's brigh...

Re: What are your thought's on..........

If the cat will wear one, they soon get used to it.

Some of my cats have been able to wear collars, and I used to selotape a Loc8tor Plus tag onto it, so I could always track them when they went out. The collar came off at night.
