Re: Lymph Nodes

Possible lymphoma but the other results in the blood would say otherwise. He was due in earlier this week but as he really bucked up and was having a good play and quite lively (first time in 3 months) we agreed to rearrange and let him have some happy time rather than take him and stress him out an...

Re: 2 new cats. HELP

She sounds like she is very stressed and probably introducing a new kitten to an already overly stressed cat wasn't the best option. She needs time to adjust slowly and if she is not used to dogs, added to a house move, meeting new cats and then an additional kitten, she will be totally overwhelmed....

Re: Pain meds for FIV

Same with my boy. The initial vet totally dismissed him 'FIV, nothing to be done' - just like that. Very sad really. The new vet is very expensive also and I nearly had a heart attack when I got the bill last time LOL

Re: Pain meds for FIV

HI Thanks for your reply reply. Yes, this is the same thing I am thinking and I can’t help but think there is another medical problem causing this lethargy and pain, hence the move to another vet. He’s gone from being really active to not loving over a 3 monrh period. Had X-rays, blood tests done an...
