The vet I worked for use super glue exclusively instead of tissue glue. In fact, we once ran out in the middle of puppy dew claw removal, and I had to run to the store and buy a tube! It's also a great thing to have on hand in any human emergency kit for the same reason. I use it all the time to

You need a different vet. He's done two tests, with conflicting results, and no tests on the kittens, and let he's advocating euth? He's NUTS. Period. NO, that's not the right thing to do, and NO that's not the usual course of action. You have an INCOMPETENT VET! Phaewryn

There are slight positives and strong positives. That is true, however, this vet is crazy, even allowing that she is right about that! You took an INJURED cat to her, and she did NOTHING to treat the INJURIES, but instead let the cat sit in a cage suffering for 4 hours and then the ONLY thing she

I don't think the law requires the vet to give it. The pet is required to have it regardless, which would make the responsibility fall on me. In that case, order the vaccine online, pull it up into a syringe, and squirt it down the toilet, and call the cat vaccinated. No-one can say you DIDN'T

My thoughts about FELV and euth'ing them just because of the test results are this: Isn't every moment in life a moment for a discovery, a moment to find joy, a moment to know what it is to be loved? Is it fair for us to take ANY of those moments away from any living thing just because they MIGHT

That's the problem, the warning is buried in two pages of TINY text in the package insert. Not even the vets bother to read it: http://www.revolution4cats.com/docs/pdf/FullInfill.pdf My favorite flea product is a shampoo by Zodiac called fleatrol. It's a shampoo, and it kills fleas and ticks
