RE: OT: sick 6 mo kitten follow-up

2008-01-02 Thread Caroline Kaufmann

During our phone consult, she mentioned about a ton of homeopathic remedies.  I 
have them written down in my cat binder at home.  Some for the eyes to help 
with the URIs and tear stains, etc.  I know she mentioned Thuja a lot.  She 
reccomended a book that Washington Homeopathic Products (Homeopathyworks.com) 
sells regarding homeopathic treatment for cats and that I should consider 
ordering the animal rescue kit for cats to have on hand.  I did order both 
the book and the kit on Friday, so am not buying any homeopathic treatments at 
this time- waiting on my kit.  It should have all the things she mentioned 
during our consult.  
 
After my appt. Sat. with Possum, everyone is now getting the week treatment of 
Wrm Clear.  She says this kills just about everything- that it will get 
tapeworms (interesting...) and also cocidia, maybe even giardia.  It just makes 
the gut so inhospitable, that both parasites and bacteria can't continue to 
live there.  This is mainly for Yoda- to see if it helps clear up his diarrhea 
b/c Dr. Maier thinks something might be hanging around in there.  Also, since 
I've had Possum over a month and he eats wonderfully, and we've now gone 
through 1 1/2 tubes of nutrical, she asked if he's gotten any bigger and I said 
only longer.  Like he's grown longer, but still isn't the size he should be 
for his age (6 mths-- Yoda puts him to shame body-wise).  So she wanted Possum 
to get a treatment of wrm clear to make sure he doesn't have a tapeworm or 
something hanging around (I haven't seen any segments tho- and believe me, I 
look for those things...ewww!).  
 
I'm also treating everyone with whatever the name of the homeopathic rem is for 
over-vaccination.  And colostrum- Dr. Maier gave me some.  I ran out forever 
ago and started using Just Born instead, then ran out of that, and due to 
expenses and just plain forgetfullness, forgot to get more.  Dr. Maier says the 
only kind to use in the New Zealand Bovine so I'll probably just get it from 
her for now on.  By the way, she set me up to get things from her for treatment 
of my fosters so that the group I vol for will pay for it...she rocks!  I got 
the wrm clear, triple antibiotic eye ointment (she says not to use terramycin- 
which I have been shying away from anyway b/c I have noted it seems to cause 
eye irritation in my cats- guess I was right), tobramycin eye drops, the one 
homeopathic rem for vaccinations, a bottle of colostrum, and a spray bottle of 
cat nap-- all so that I didn't have to pay (which is really only fair b/c 
these are fosters and I'm breaking myself paying for premium foods, crates, 
bowls, ferret hammocks, and even litter sometimes).  I did have to pay for 
the Possum office visit- which was fine b/c her rates are so freaking 
reasonable, but b/c I am a foster, she gave me a percent discount.  So I 
finally just feel better all around- no longer like I am out there alone on a 
raft with all these special needs cats that technically don't belong to me b/c 
they are fosters- attempting to care for them without the assistance- when 
necessary- of a discounted vet/vet period!  Ensuring my psychologcial 
well-being in the situation I am in is obviously really important too.  And 
feeling I was expected to do this, sans vet care, was NOT working for me.
 
And admittedly, I was out of town Sun. night through Tues. evening, so I didn't 
have tons of time to observe the Possum, post-Dr. visit, but already there's 
been even more improvement.  He just seems even more perky!  Last night and 
this morning, he's just a wide-eyed, perky little thing.  He may still be 
adoptable yet!  Given another month with me, he may be 85% almost normal!  And 
he's the best little bed sleeper (he's so teeny and gentle- he sleeps curled in 
my arms or up partially on my pillow and we have these little love fests in the 
morning while my snooze alarm goes off)- he'd make such a great buddy for 
someone who wants a gentle (i.e. not a high energy maniac of kitten), lovey 
dovey bed buddy!

Hi everybody 
 
Unfortunately I've returned fo rno so good reasons. Xmas day my Buddy
(4.5years) cams down sick. She would hardly eat and was hiding most of
day. she seemed to want to lick food but was too sore to swallow so she
couldn't bear it - and she was gulping like when we have a sore throat.
The first day she hadn't hit me round the face and nuzzled up to me in
the morning for breakfast and cuddles.
 
Got her to the vet on Thursday as soon as they reopened after xmas and
boxing day. Her temperature was 105 and vet thought it was a throat
infection and gave her the antibiotic injection - I'd prefer that if
possible to avoid her being stressed about getting tablets in her.  By
saturaday she was no better and still not eaten and hardly drank much so
panic set in. Took her back and saw a different vet who thought it was a
calicibirus flare up cos her gums had inflammed - so we syringe fed her
15ml of Hills AD with some metacam for cats. I syringe fed her a bit
more at home and repeated this again Sunday. Meanwhile I'd been to the
sanctuary where I got her from and said I need help with the vet so
their vet saw her yesterday - her temp was still 105 and still not
eating. Syringe feeding is stressful for her but she just about
tolerates 20ml feed. He gave her synolux antibiotic so now on tablets
anyway so am doing that when I feed her. SHe switched into an unhappy
poorly girl and now fed up being messed about feeding and going to vets.
If no better tomorrow then she'll have bloods done to see if her FIV has
progressed. She seems to have lost interest in food completely now and I
don't know what else to do. I'm tried so many different foods to
stimulate her with smell and although syringe feeding her AD is
necessary at the moment it's stressing her more and I don't want to her
to get scared of food. She will come of hiding now and stay out for a
while but often I have to coax her out - she looks so tiny and lethargic
- desperately nedd her temperture to come back down.
 
She's is only 4 and this was so rapid I didn't it coming - poor girl is
depressed. My FeLV girl Minstrel knows too and is obviously concerned
about her.
 
Any suggestions and prayers welcome cos I'm in bits at moment.
Fortunately I've been off work this last week but supposed to be back in
tomorrow and don't want to go at all.

I have been pushing sanctuary to help fund interferon but they try to
hold off it cos of the cost as the omega in UK is expensive. That's why
I went to stamp my feet and demand they help cos they tell you to act
fast and say they help with vets and then don't allow you to look after
the animal properly by with holding drugs. Annoying but I understand the
cost issue when they have so many animals to share it around.
 
She does lick her lips sometimes so will mention that tomorrow -
probably worth getting her kidney function tested  anyway. Need her
temperature down fast cos that would put anyone off food.
 
I'll keep trying and update after vets tomorrow xxx
