Oh, man! I wish you lived anywhere except the USA! Feline Interferon Omega has even cured FIP in some cases! I've been reading lots of studies about it, and I really believe it can do miracles... but it's not LEGAL here yet! How is she breathing? Rear leg weakness can also be an electrolyte

I hope it's nothing too! I hate to even mention it, but that was one of the very last signs right before my Moogie died, her nose began to bleed. It's the reason I rushed her to the vet... but it was too late, they said she was already dying, and probably wouldn't make it another hour on her own.

Pink tinged watery stuff is USUALLY vomit, and it turns pink when they have roundworms. I'd have him dewormed, if you haven't already (and don't freak out too much if you see spaghetti-like worms in the pink stuff somewhere down the road). It COULD be urine, but that would indicate an

Put his scratching posts close to the places he is currently scratching, and get some double sided tape to stick on the places you don't want him to scratch, cats HATE tape and sticky stuff. They make a product specifically for this if you can't find any good double sided tape locally:

Pizza crust wont hurt him if there's no garlic or onion on it. That's one of my cat's favorite treats! You can even leave a little sauce and cheese on it for him. A little belly wont hurt anything, morbid obesity can though. You just have to find a balance. A good rule is, if he starts to have

Yeah, it's pretty scary to see too, a big pile of worms in a pool of pink tinged vomit, seen it a few times... and makes me gag every time... I can assist in surgery, but roundworms make me sick! One site sums it up when it says nothing seems to inspire as much dread and loathing as a pile of

Michelle, do you think your vet would be more apt to be positive and helpful (rather than loathe and reluctantly obligatory) if you printed out the studies on the feline interferon Omega that SHOW it's benefit for FIP, FIV, URL, and Stomatitis? I have several you could print and show him, if he's

Poor Kerry, You really can't control what the vet's office did or didn't do. I know it's terrible, but does reliving it again and again do anything positive? No. Beating yourself up and reliving regrets can kill you. Please try to remember, YOU did everything YOU could do, and some things were out

Renee, I think the main difference between the way Dr. Clifford treats you with Emily and the way he's treating Michelle with Lucy is that Emily's breast cancer is considered more treatable, where they are not giving Michelle any hope, and are more or less annoyed that she hasn't given up yet with

Yeah, my Miranda cat ATE all the blinds up to cat head height from the window sill, so now we keep them up about 18 inches from the sill... or she will eat them some more! She didn't actually consume them, she just chewed them all to shreds, pieces of plastic blinds all over the floor.
