Steve, sorry to ask this--it may be a dumb
Q--but do you know for sure that fleas are the source of Loki's
After Levi began scratching frequently I put
a humidifier in the room on the advice of group members.
When the vet came, she examined him and said
she was "not concerned" about the scratching. The humidifier did seem
to reduce the incidence of scratching among the cats in general.
I hope hairballs were also the source of the
throwing up. Kerry
Recently, Loki has gotten fleas. He
scratches a lot, but it doesn't seem overwhelming. I don't see any in
the house, but will start a good cleaning/vacuuming regiment. I bought
a flee comb, but will of course do more. Does anyone have advice on
best course of action for a 9 month old FeLV+ kitty? I will also go to
the vet for any prescribed treatment, but don't want to cause him a
speck of stress with treatment. My vet is very good in this regard
since he is opposed to poisonous stuff.
For the past three days Loki has been
throwing up in the early evenings. He is eating normally otherwise and
this doesn't seem to faze him too much. Our feeding regiment for him
has not changed. His supplements are L-Lysine and Vitamin C, which he
has been give for many months. His throwing up seems to occur sometime
after he has his wet food with supplements in the early afternoon
(4pm-ish). Any advice or comments?
Even though he is fine otherwise, this is
causing me very much anxiety.
Thanks for any advice.
