Re: Extreme flea infestation - please help.

You need to go to your vets and get the cats advocate or stronghold, and whilst there get their household treatment spray ( indorex or rip flea), then treat cats (you will also need to worm them as fleas cause tapeworm) and all of you need to leave the house for a few hours spraying every nook and c...

Re: Basil not eating

That's the worst bit, nothing happens now..... There is no treatment and no cure, all they can do is drip and painkillers when she gets a flare up, but that's what's unknown at the moment, could be weekly or once every few years, no one knows! She has to have low cal bland food but she was already o...

Re: Basil not eating

Thanks for asking crewella, Meg is a conundrum!

Re: Basil not eating

Thank you, they have sent bloods off to lab for confirmation with the 'real' pancreatitis test but he seems quite sure it's what she has and said it was a 'guarded prognosis' as not all recover :( It's really shocked me as it was so far from what I was expecting, she is in on a drip and vetergesic f...

Re: Hand rear kitten with diarhoea

Thanks everyone, it is amazing to see him now compared to 2 weeks ago as he is dashing about chasing his sister, at least they are worth the grey hairs Mark..... although I have no idea how/if I will part with these 2 to rehome them! Cats number 6 and 7 here I come!

Re: Basil not eating

I lost my miffy aged 17 last year and she had 3 pancreatitis flare ups in her last 5 years of life, just like basil just went off food and became weak and ended up on a drip each time, each flare up took about a week for her to start to improve and eat, she was so weak and thin normally bless her an...

Re: Pregnancy suspicions and change in behaviour

Have you checked her nipples? If she is pregnant they get swollen and pink teats before the weight gain. A cat that isn't pregnant will have nipples the size of pin heads, if they have had litters in the past they will be a bit bigger than this tho, but if preg will be prominent and pink with a noti...

As a rescue we never home single kittens where they will be home alone all day, the average person does and 8 hour working day with travelling time before and after added to that, that is a really long time for a kitten that is missing it's mum and litter mates to be alone. If you really only wanted...

Re: New kitten after FIP in home

The fip itself is not contagious and it's highly likely your cat contracted the coronavirus long before symptoms of fip appeared, and the corona virus is spread in their feaces so not likely to be around the home. I would highly recommend to be on the safe side you purchase some virkon from e bay or...

It's been a huge help. He is still very up and down with his tummy and his feeding but continuing to hold his own, he has that skinny 'pinched' look about him, so desperately underweight :/

Thank you hunnybunny, I did wonder about diluting the formula down a bit, my vet is great and will try anything we discuss but like you say it's so hard and always a bit of a 'what if' guessing game. Far too early to say but he slept 3 hours following the meds, then just took 10 mil (a lot for him) ...
