Re: Broken Jaw Operation

Good luck at the vets in the morning. I don;t have any advice, but fingers crossed they can get to the bottom of it. I wonder if an infection has set in? - hopefully some ABs will sort it.

You don't say where you are. Have you contacted all the local rescues? Sadly there is little chance of finding a home for cats on here as most people on here already have their full quota already. You can find a list of local rescues here http://www.catchat.org/adoption/index.html" onclick=&quo...

Re: Anyone have any experience with Destolit?

Sorry I haven't replied until, but I was getting seriously worried. He has been so withdrawn and started peeing on the rug again. I don't want to speak too soon, but he seems to have turned the corner this morning. :) Kylie is OK I think. The extra UV means her eyes have flared up again so she has b...

I could be wrong, but I thought he said it was 10 now. He has asked me several times if I am finding spat out pills around. He does seem a bit brighter, but he has never been like a normal cat (whatever that is)

The problem with Laz is that he is very particular. He won't touch any type of supermeat/pate food (except once in a blue moon, a Felix supermeat pouch, but only tuna flavour) Whiskas, any kind of real meat etc. At one time I had him on a mix of Felix Senior and AGAIL senior + his dry.

Re: Anyone have any experience with Distolit?

Thanks Helen :), he is sound asleep now :). He had been lying down hunched up and not sleeping properly. Apparently Destolit dissolves gallstones, so I doubt the drug could have had any effect in a couple of hours?

Re: Anyone have any experience with Demerol?

He has finally perked up a bit in the last 1/2 hour :)

Surely Demerol can't work that quickly? - maybe it is just a coincidence, but just happy that he is feeling a bit better. I was up with him until after 2am this morning as he wasn't comfortable at all.

Re: Anyone have any experience with Demerol?

He didn't give me any numbers, but he said that unless it improves in a month, the scn and/or biospy will be needed to determine if it is a localised issue or if the whole liver is affected. Laz is really down. He did say it is quite commomn for hyper-t cats to have liver issues.

Laz had had still been acting odd despite altering his Felimazole dose. I took him to the vet today. They said his heart rate had gone down to 160 (from 180) so he was confident Laz was on the right dose. I said that I was concerned his pupil were dilated.

Poor cat. I hope he's on the mend. If you are still having problems getting him to eat regular food, there are a few dry foods that are similar to treats.
