That may be the case. I do find it bizarre that all of a sudden I'm getting so many positives for trich... but then, there wasn't a test before, so that explains why I just began to find them. Err DUH! If you don't test for it, you don't KNOW about it. I just am glad it's finally becoming known,

Oh yeah, I completely understand! I don't do raw or homemade myself for JUST that reason, too much effort (and money)! It might be ok to just feed him the chicken and turkey you are plus a bit of a general supplement, like say Feline Missing Link, or Vita-tabs, or anything just as a general

probiotics are good, no matter what you feed, I would continue to add the probiotics! I'm currently using the Purina fortiflora packs myself, as my vet sent my cat home from the hospital with an opened box, and I think it's a good product, he seems improved already. Normally I wouldn't buy

How does the poo smell (fouler than usual diarrhea)? Is it greenish at all? Is it a pattie-like consistency, similar to cow patties? Trich is usually greenish cow pattie like poo with a TERRIBLE smell, very odorific. Phaewryn Don't Lose Your Pet! Register at AWOLpet.com: http://AWOLPet.com

I don't know, but she sounds like she is having either cramps or gas. I really don't know what to do about cramps in an IBD cat... but MAYBE a heat pack under he belly could make her more comfortable. But as to why now, and not before, I have no idea. Maybe before she was just hiding her pain

so it's light in color? It could still be trich though, even if it's not the right color, I would do the testing and see what comes up. Maybe take in a mixed poo sample from the box, a dab from each kitten. How long ago were they weaned? I missed their age I think? Is it patty-like, it holds

Mine get occasional fancy feast too, it's not too bad if it's limited to a snack, and not the primary food source. I use it to hide medicine in all the time, it's a great kitty junk food. Just remember that's what it is, and use it accordingly. You wouldn't eat a big mac and a large fry for all

Maybe you vet could give her something for the pain, at least. The IBD is so hard, because anything you can normally give to a cat to help them makes the IBD flare up. I feel bad for her and you! I'm glad I don't have any IBD here, it would drive me insane, I think. What about Slippery Elm? Hasn't

An interesting topic that always peaks my interest. I believe there are a few zoonotic diseases that can have upper respiratory effets in both cats and humans, and are transmissible visa-versa, namely Chlamydia and Tuberculosis (both very rare) come to mind, but there's another too, that I can't
