Throwing up and not eating may be from hairballs, especially if it's the bubbly phlem type of throw up. Try to think simple. If a cat who was negative for everything had this situation happen, you probably would think simple situation first. Try a hairball remedy like Petromalt or Laxitone

It's OK Karen. We all panic when our not-so-normal cats get sick because we assume that it's the FIV+ or FeLv+ that has kicked in and is going to deprive them of their little bit of happiness but I have learned to center myself and think positively about cat illness. First I try something

Ugh! I hate terminology although I do understand some of it from being a medical transcriber in human medical practice. The gist of the paper is that using AZT and other human drugs on a cat can be risky and should not be done except under the control of a veterinary specialist. Your cat could

You would have to take a whole lot of Clavamox to make up the mgs. that you would need. Augmentin is a much higher mg. dose than what is given to cats.But then again, you could take as many pills to make up the difference and you would not have to deal with a physician who might report you to

I know that FeLv is infectious but I had two carrier cats who tested negative until they were old and had renal failure, then tested positive. However, if FeLv were so contagious their housemates would have been infected early on because everyone slept in a pile and groomed each other. After

 Here's a suggestion to everyone who has cats or dogs. If your cat or dog has a bad hair day and bites/scratches you and you have to go to a doctor or emergency clinic because you are having a reaction to the saliva, afraid of infection or things like that, DO NOT TELL THEM THAT YOUR ANIMAL

Well, worrying will get you nowhere. It's not action, it's not practical. Forget the worry and just take her for a test in a couple of weeks. I doubt whether a hissy fit fight will cause anything but a big headache for you. At any rate, think about sitting and worrying for an hour a day. Does

Even one flea can cause flea allergy. It's an allergic reaction to something. I have a cat who is FIV+ and also borderline diabetic. He develops scabs on occasion, then they go away. And return, and go away, etc.. Some of my other cats get scabs, near tail or around neck. One vet told me the
