Wash the wound with antibiotic soap and keep antibiotic ointment on it. Also treat with hot compresses. It will draw white blood cells to the area. The Dr told me to do this. Autumn bit the fire out of me when I was 6 months pregnant. My hand swelled up and was red and sore. I never developed

Autumn bites so we did the two year rabies shot for her. She was slightly sick for a couple of days, but came out fine. Her vet said that if she handled that well that he wanted to do distemper. I am not going to schedule that because we almost lost her twice as a kitten and I think it was the

I have to say that Nutrical was invaluable to us in saving Autumn's life. She couldn't keep anything down and everytime she had diarrhea, she also vomited. Nutrical and Pedialyte kept her hydrated and nourished. I am sure that without it we would have lost her. Of course, we got her back

Does anyone have a holistic vet that is willing to consult via phone or email? Autumn has uveitis in both eyes and we are currently treating with topical steroids. Her vet is afraid she may lose sight in her left eye or both as the problem seems to be sympathetic. This just flared up in the left

Thanks to everyone for the info. Autumn is doing better today. You can tell that her right eye isn't quite right - it seems more glassy than the other. The steroids make her think she's invincible and she hates her eye drops. Yesterday after her last dose she ran back over and swatted the bottle

Autumn pants sometimes after moderate to vigorous play, but I have never had a cat do that before. We hadn't mentioned it to the vet because we thought it was just too hot. We did Google it. Is it sustained panting that we need to be worried about or any panting in general? Autumn goes back the

Autumn got spayed Monday and they re-tested her for FeLV. We were hoping she would kick it, but she was still showing a strong positive on the ELISA test. Since the spay she has to wear one of those Elizabethean collars. We can't take it off for two minutes without her attacking her sutures.

Hey All, Autumn is doing really well overall. She's been feeling so good in fact that she's been trying to steal human food. She's tried to do this as long as we've had her. The only difference is that she's now bigger and sneakier. On Friday night she got into a plate and ate some pizza crust
