Re: Honey’s results

They prefer it at room temperature, but I am a bit wary of leaving anything meat based hanging around for too long so it is usually straight from the fridge. It sets to a jelly, which makes it easier to take the fat off. If the cats don't like it chuck in a little salt and a few chopped vegetables ...

If you can put chicken thighs wine and whatever else goes in a casserole and make it passable for hoomans, you can't poison your cats unless you forgetfully add wine to theirs ... in which case they are unlikely to drink it!
A whole bottle of red wine goes in so anything is passable with that :D

Re: Honey’s results

I think if/when i ever get round to it i will use thighs as bones easier to remove. I do a chicken and red wine casserole in slow cooker sometimes so will buy bigger pack of thighs and just cook a few separately. Bit nervewracking as i not a great cook and be scared to get it wrong and poison them!!...

Re: Honey’s results

I sprinkle it on food, then add a splash of water. Poppy is prone to dehydration because of the steroids (increased peeing) and the digestive issues, so I have been adding water to her food for some time in any case. Perhaps try a buffet of saucers, powder+water, powder+food+water, food only, all i...

Protexin Pro‑Kolin Enterogenic Sachets. Probiotic sachets, great results in dogs with ibd type illnesses so vet wanted honey to try them even though she a cat. Fjm I not tried that!

Re: Honey’s results

I know Boo was on tablets but we were told cut dose in half, at first, and keep halving it. Don't. Too much in one go. Our plan was to skip one day a week for a month, then give him 5 days miss one, then 4 days miss one, and so on. We never got there but that was more realistic, a month at a time. ...

Thanks fjm, tbh he did actually comment the other day it was uncertain how much, if at all, the steroids were helping... Good point though that they can be life saving and yes, having squits is a relatively small price to pay (within reason) to still have our fur babies with us. I guess we wouldn’t ...

She been on steroids since May this year. I not sure what they class as ‘long term’ either. That was one reason i wanted up to date bloods done to see if the steroids were affecting anything that we don’t know of.

Re: Honey’s results

Apparently yes it's possible, it's one of the side effects. I would guess more likely in fact as she never reliably had her dosage as she should and didn't come off them gradually as she should. Steroids mess up the system really badly if not taken exactly as prescribed or stopped without very grad...

Re: Honey’s results

Ha brilliant!!

Just had a thought, could honeys splats actually be side effect of steroids?? She never had squits like this before she went on meds. She only ever had one episode of upset tummy and bad vomiting the day before she saw the consultant.

Your decision but i would never ever leave a cat until he or she had more symptoms...

Re: Honey’s results

Update, consultant had final results, honeys pancreas is digesting food as it should be so that can be ruled out why she still has squits. I’m to start protexin probiotic sachets next week but no idea what food to put it in as Wet food either makes her poorly Or she won’t eat it. Not putting it in d...

Definitely definitely get a second opinion.

For my cat this means she either doesn’t have lymphoma o...
