I wonder if you could get sheep or goat's milk and make your own
yogurt.  I had a yogurt maker at one time but donated it.  It seemed
easy enough to make though, I just had no reason to make any.

 I'm glad your vet is flexible and willing to help.  If BooBoo's snifflies
 can get cleared up, I know his appetite will improve.  They don't want stuff
 they can't smell.  Have you tried heating his food so it's stinkier?  You
 may run out of the kitchen gagging, but he'll think it's great.  As I'm sure
 you know, making sure kitties keep eating, no matter what their FeLV status,

 Thank you all for sharing these uplifting stories.  I'm tempted to print
 them out and show to my vet.  I called his office this morning and asked the
 assistant if I could possibly fax a list of questions and suggestions
 regarding BooBoo's care and then come in to talk to him.  Well he called me
 back at work and thanked me for doing that and even mentioned how
 intelligent and informed I was.  I told him I had been doing a lot of
 reading and all these suggestions came from this group.  I thought he might
 laugh at it but he was very impressed.  He is totally in agreement about the
 course of Doxycycline and said tonight we'd sit down and discuss the use of
 Interferon.  I know it is going to cost us a fortune, everything does over
 here, but just by chance my dad gave me a thousand dollars for my birthday
 so that will certainly help.  He did mention that they do transfuse animals
 but the same problem would surface in time and it can be dangerous anyway.
 Not even going to consider that one.

 So that's where we stand.  He needs to be checked tonight for his breathing
 and runny nose and come up with some way to get him to eat more.  Nothing
 I've offered him seems to meet his approval.

It's easy: Just put BooBoo on your lap, put a little food on your

can smear it in his mouth. Once he actually tastes it, he may be fine.

Subject: the good stories


Thank you all for sharing these uplifting stories.  I'm tempted to 
print them out and show to my vet.  I called his office this morning and asked 
the assistant if I could possibly fax a list of questions and suggestions 
regarding BooBoo's care and then come in to talk to him.  Well he called me 
back at work and thanked me for doing that and even mentioned how intelligent 
and informed I was.  I told him I had been doing a lot of reading and all 
these suggestions came from this group.  I thought he might laugh at it but he 
was very impressed.  He is totally in agreement about the course of Doxycycline 
and said tonight we'd sit down and discuss the use of Interferon.  I know it is 
going to cost us a fortune, everything does over here, but just by chance my 
dad gave me a thousand dollars for my birthday so that will certainly help.  He 
did mention that they do transfuse animals but the same problem would surface 
in time and it can be dangerous anyway.  Not even going to consider that one.

So that's where we stand.  He needs to be checked tonight for his 
breathing and runny nose and come up with some way to get him to eat more.  
Nothing I've offered him seems to meet his approval.

Talk to you all later.

Re: the good stories ~ warming food

2008-02-14 Thread Marylyn
Get a bowl of pretty hot water.  Put the bowl of food in the hot  
water.  It will take a few minutes but the heat will transfer and you  
will not dilute the food.  If you want to mix a liquid in it try a  
broth (chicken, beef etc).  Again, you will be adding to the food.

Also, our vet recommended against warming food in microwave as it  
changes consistency and smell of it. Vet suggested I mix food with  
warm (or hot) water to bring it to room temp.

Have his throat and teeth checked.  And try a good, organic  
yogurtfull fat, plain.  Dixie had some gum/teeth issues that  
have cleared up.the doxy should help if that is an issue.

make it worse, he only wants my husband or Mister to feed him.   
Boo and I will be sitting on the bed and if he hears one sound  
downstairs he stands, does his strange little meow and waits for  
Bob to come up.  He wants food but then won't eat it.  Maybe the  
vet has some experience with picky cats.

I'm glad your vet is flexible and willing to help.  If BooBoo's  
snifflies can get cleared up, I know his appetite will improve.   
They don't want stuff they can't smell.  Have you tried heating his  
food so it's stinkier?  You may run out of the kitchen gagging, but  
he'll think it's great.  As I'm sure you know, making sure kitties  
keep eating, no matter what their FeLV status, is paramount.  We've  
been through 3 separate instances of fatty liver disease, which is  
the end result of insufficient eating, and I can tell you we are  
ever-vigilant to make sure everybody is eating.

If he doesn't eat it immediately let it warm (naturally) to room  
temperature then put a small amount on a paw...don't force it into his  
mouth.  Dixie prefers sheep or goat yogurt but it is difficult to get  
here.  I don't know what options you have.
