Re: Bailey has been shorn

I agree I don't think that's bruising, just looks like pigmentation. I think you should call your vet and see what they say especially as her third eyelid is showing.

Re: Fluffy needs an operation!

I think you should take her back, because he's the expert and knows what he's looking for so for your own peace of mind I think it's worth it. My vets don't charge for the follow up appointment after an op, it's included in the operation price so I doubt he's after your money! Fusses to her ladyship...

Re: Inflammatory Bowel Disease & appropriate diagnosis proce

I know the symptoms of Lymphoma and IBD are very similar. I've been on this journey with one of my cats and as Desley says you would need to have a biopsy done (maybe an ultrasound or something similar too) and even then IBD is patchy so if they hit a normal batch of bowel the results will be inconc...

Re: Bailey has been shorn

Although it was a general anaesthetic one of my guys took a similar amount of time to calm down after an op, the vets always say "they'll be a bit zonked for 24-48 hours or so" but I've found the exact opposite to be true! Hector would not leave my side, he wouldn't sleep and would cry if ...

Re: Bailey has been shorn

Oh bless.

I'm guessing life feels very odd for her right now and she's probably feeling quite vulnerable without her fur so that is causing her to redirect that angst at the carpet, I would continue with the care you're giving her and hopefully she'll get used to her new look in a couple of days.

Re: Boris is going to the dentist

Noodley had most of her teeth removed last year and I started cutting down her Metacam too early with a similar reaction, she became quite withdrawn and quiet so I gave her another week on the vets advice and she was fine :)

Re: My cat has looks like she has dandruff

Could be something as simple as they're moulting, my guys get quite dandruffy at this time of year when they moult but probably worth a call to the vet to be safe.

Re: Fluffy needs an operation!

As others have said the vet wouldn't have suggested an op if he didn't think Fluffy was up to it, she'll feel heaps better once that tooth is out. It is nerve wracking but in my experience they're so much better afterwards. Good luck!
