On a different subject thought I might share this
Re taking cats to vets:
I often forget this in the stress of trying to help a sick animal
but if you put an t shirt or towel you wore in the carrier with your scent ,
seems to calm them. Ask vet staff to put it in their kennels if they are being
from the carrier they came in..
Re getting a cat to eat:
I recently had three older cats that were sick and were being treated with
and wouldn't eat. One had upper respiratory congestion. One urinary infection.
One reason unknown. They were on antibiotics but still wouldn't eat.
Sometimes antibiotics upset stomach.
Searched the internet and found a suggestion to put a dab of honey in
their mouth. Don't know if coincidence or the antibiotics kicking in
but it seemed to help them maybe soothed
sore throat or stomach. I only put a dime sized drop on outer lips once or
twice . I am not a vet so
if you are thinking of trying this,.
Check with your vet first, as i did to make sure no harm given your cat's
one of the sites mentioning honey is
has anyone else had experience with this home remedy?
Cat with upper respiratory infection:
I also put my cat in the bathroom when i took a steaming shower. I think
it really helped.
