We had Cody's fluoxetine's compounded into a transdermal gel that we 
rubbed on the inside of his ear.

 That is also what I did with Cody, we started with the most

 before 
 trying the prozac, they all helped but only the prozac
 stopped it 
 completely.
 
  I tried amytriptaline (that's probably spelled
 wrong!) on Ruben for 
  inappropriate urination.I now believe that it was
 his first signs 
  that something was wrong with him internally
  My daughter used the same drug (we had it compounded
 into a cream we 
  could rub into the ear...pilling was out of the
 question) on one of 
  her male cats...her cat became more calm, but I'm
 not sure it 
  completely solved the problem.
  I have heard people are having great results with the
 plug ins that 
  release certain pheremones that are calming, but I
 haven't tried them 
  yet myself.
  Good luck, it's one of a cat owner's biggest

RE: looking for advice re kitty prozac

2008-06-24 Thread C PQ

I entered this conversation late, but if this has not been said, then here's my 
two cents:  Sometimes with a cat that WILL NOT take meds orally, you can go to 
the supermarket deli, ask for a chunk of Boar's Head liverwurst (I believe BH 
does not contain onion powder, so is safe for cats), take it home, and use it 
to make little pill pockets to hide the meds. Most of my cats LOVE the 
liverwurst, and will eat it right up. Not all of them, but most. Worth a try?...

   Baytril can be given as an injection, it is an inter-muscular

was the foaming during or immediately after pilling?  gelcaps and a pill gun

Subject: looking for advice re kitty prozac


Dear all
Has anyone ever used a kitty Prozac such as fluoxetine? One of my co-workers 
whose cat has always been a sprayer--and she's had him for YEARS, kudos to 
her---was thrilled when 1/2 tab fluoxetine daily fixed the behavior almost 
immediately. Unfortunately he began foaming at the mouth at the same time, so 
she stopped using it after a few days.
Does anyone have any experience in using an alternative prozac that worked 
for spraying without causing foaming or other adverse side-effects. She says 
she's going to the vet to ask about a different one after she returns from 
vacation, and I thought I'd try picking your brains before she went. I think 
it's wonderful that--unlike so many people--she's committed to her cat despite 
his spraying.
I have a sprayer too, but he's feral, so there's nothing I can use (he's not 
into any sort of treat on a regular basis, and he turned his nose up at 
Pillpockets) apart from a dividing line between him and the cause of his 
behavior, my other cats. He has his own loyal buddy, a female, Momcat, so he's 
pretty content on the whole, I think.
Anyway, thanks for any other prozac ideas!
Kerry

I used flouxetine with Cody for about 6 months, we never had that 
problem.  I sounds like it probably tastes awful and he is foaming when 
he gets a taste of it.  Have her put it in a pill pocket or gel capsule 
and I think that would solve it.  It worked very well with Cody also.  
Stopped immediately too.

We have two kitties on antianxiety drugs.  We get them compounded through a

 almost immediately. Unfortunately he began foaming at the mouth at the same

 Does anyone have any experience in using an alternative prozac that
 worked for spraying without causing foaming or other adverse side-effects.
 She says she's going to the vet to ask about a different one after she
 returns from vacation, and I thought I'd try picking your brains before she

 her cat despite his spraying.

 I have a sprayer too, but he's feral, so there's nothing I can use (he's
 not into any sort of treat on a regular basis, and he turned his nose up at
 Pillpockets) apart from a dividing line between him and the cause of his
 behavior, my other cats. He has his own loyal buddy, a female, Momcat, so
 he's pretty content on the whole, I think.

 Anyway, thanks for any other prozac ideas!

Re: looking for advice re kitty prozac

2008-06-21 Thread Laura B
Hi,
 
I've been using Paxil on my cat (per the vet) for inappropriate urination, over 
grooming and general aggression towards my other cats for a few months now and 
it has been working wonderfully, with no visable side effects.  Polly (cat) I 
adopted from a free roam shelter several years and is not socialized at all, I 
can't pill her but luckily (Thank goodness!) she loves Pill Pockets, funny, but 
my other cats hate them.
 
I tried feliway, and still use it, but it doesn't seem to help much.

now.Mystique has a piddle problem and Xander an attitude problem.I use the 
compounded form on Xander and the pill on the other.
Also when I first started giving Mystique the pill she drooled and foamed 
badly.I now cut them in halves and put them in the little gel capsules so she 
cant get a taste of the pill if I dont get it in the as good as I should.Matbe
