Kitty would take this when she wouldn't eat anything. Sometimes just a few licks of it would get her to the point she could eat Fancy Fest or some other canned food. If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who

Jenn, I'm so glad you're back. That's an excellent suggestion, for Hideyo and anyone else that is assist feeding. You're experience and input are always so appreciated. Hideyo, have you joined the assist feeding group yet? It's usually such a stressful thing to have to assist feed someone

Re: while we're on the subject of adding RR to water, can you add Interferon to water?

My vet told me that the Interferon isn't effective added to water, or food. Even if it was, how would you monitor individual intake that way? I don't think it's possible to od them on it though. It has no taste at all, it's just like water. You could try adding it to a tiny bit of clear

Because of Belinda's experience with feeding tubes, I would absolutely try one if/when the need ever arises again. I wish I had done that with Gypsy BEFORE she got so emaciated. By the time I knew enough to try one, she was too weak to be sedated for the procedure. Belinda, you and Bailey

I did a quick Google and didn't see anything about dilution instructions. You could always have your vet call my vet at Veterinary Medical and Surgical Group in Ventura CA (805-339-2290). Have them ask for my vet's liaison, Michelle Rose. They're extremely helpful and should be able to help

You know when caring for bottle babies there's a trick to help a failing kitten bounce back... You can rub just the tiniest bit of clear corn syrup on their gums to give them some energy, it has helped get someone eating that wasn't interested, or acting lethargic. Nutri cal has corn syrup

Hi Everyone, I just joined this list and thought I'd introduce myself. I lost a cat, Cleo, to leukemia last January. She was only 1 year old. She had been vaccinated, but the vet said she probably received in in utero from her mom so the vaccine ended up doing more harm than good. She was

Hi, Belinda, thank you so much for your encouragement- before I started assist feeding, I did consider feedinb tube - my vet thoughts that she could put one through his nose without anthesia (I was really concerned about him going through the anethesia) Is feeding tube very uncomfortable? I don't

Well, it's a lot for Hannibal who hates to be assisted fed --- on the other hand, some one like Ginger (my felk kitty) is not difficult at all to give 100 cc - just it's difficult and stressful enough for me to even give him a squart (which is 6 cc) --- 100 CC seems a long way for me and Hannibal.

My 10 year old domestic short hair just got diagnosed with FIV and FELV last week. She was lethargic, not eating and drinking, etc which is why I brought her in and how we found out the diagnosis. She ended up with a 105.9 fever and was hospitalized for several days with IV fluids and antibiotics.

Hi All, Bailey is not doing well today, he seems to to really be nauseated and even threw up on his second feeding right when I started. I waited a while and did manage to feed him, but on his third feeding I think he had a convulsion or a seizure. I was sitting on the couch feeding,
