The toaster oven is NOT safe UNLESS you remember to ALWAYS close the door! My Sunset became annoyed when I went out of town overnight she peed into the toaster oven. I didn't suspect a thing until I tried to toast an English muffin. The stench was horrible! So do NOT assume that toaster

I almost lost a precious one, my boyfriend kitty, to hemobart a few years ago. It was really scary. He had a high fever, his liver values were up, his HCT went down like a rock. But doxycycline saved his life. It is THE drug for hemobart. I would think that the combination of the doxy, the

Cassanndra. She MUST stay on the doxy! Be sure you have enough for a minimum of 4 weeks after she is home. Hemobart is a really nasty bug if you stop the doxy, it will come right back. Pam C J wrote: They can't do the needle biospy here, they don't have the equipment. I'm thinking

You can find more about hemobart on the feline anemia list. A number of people over there have dealt with it. I just know that doxycycline saved Gus's life after he spent a week in the ICU at the U of WI vet hospital in Madison. It was pretty awful because his brother had died there only a

Cassamdra. Do NOT attempt to express her bladder unless you are familiar with doing so! This is not something I would ever undertake without being sure I knew what I was doing as you can do real damage. Keep her litter fresh so that you can see what she pees if she is using the litter box.

200 ml IS too much for her. Stay with 100 but be sure the prior watering is absorbed. Also she should still be on doxy. That is absolutely CRITICAL! For hemobart, she needs to be on it for a good 6 weeks. If she is not, then her HCT will keep dropping she will be in emergency need of a
