Hemobart is short for Hemobartanellosis. It's usually now called Mycoplasma 
Hemofelis. It's a blood parasite, and causes anemia in cats. Mostly thought to 
be from fleas and ticks. It is often asymptomatic unless combined with some 
other disease process, so may go undiagnosed. Treatment can be with a 
tetracycline (usually doxycycline) or some florquinilones (Baytril/Zenequin).

 Poor Bubba! I'm sorry he's having such a rough time, and a rude bite 
 on the tail to top it off. Hopefully he can clear the Hemobart and 
 move on. I'll add him to the purrayers list.

 He got fluids, more Doxy, Prenisone, Cyproheptadine, Capstar  AD.

Hi Beth - I just had a similar problem with Percy. He's a cat who originally 
tested FeLv+ but turned to negative after 3 months of intensive care, feeding, 
vitamins, and vet treatment. So a couple of weeks ago, he suddenly stopped 
eating. He was a real fatso and lost about 2 pounds in 2 weeks. Took to vet 
for what looked like eye infection. Poor cat had a 103 fever. Since Percy is a 
difficult boy to pill (unless you like bitten fingers and scratched arms) the 
vet gave him Convenia, a long acting antibiotic injection. In 3 days he was 
eating, grooming and acting normal (being a pest when I scooped the litter box 
and standing on my foot). He still isn't up to par though. I can feel his 
backbone which is not good since he originally looked like a furry whale. I'm 
still concerned with his health but so far, he's gobbling up his food 
normally. Ask your vet about Convenia. It's not for everyone but it is for 
caregivers who want to survive caring for an ill
 and ill tempered cat.

 Hi Beth,
  
  Do you think the infection/inflammation is from the possible 
 bite on his tail? Did it abcess? What antibiotic is he being given for that? 
 So the anemia has resolved? That's very positive, and it's not unusual for 
 cats with a fever to be inappetant. I understand that most people don't 
 choose to use nsaids in cats, but ketoprofen seemed to work wonders for 
 Gribble's hih  fever.
  
  Does he need to be completely anesthetised for an ultrasound? 
 Have you had problems with him in the past? I've never needed anyone put out 
 completely, can you discuss sedation with your Vet?  Other than a tender 
 belly, are there symptoms that lead you to suspect a tumor?
  
  I'm sorry he doesn't seem to be improving, will keep the 
 positive energies flowing his way,
  
 Hoping for better news soon,

 Got bloodwork done yesterday. The only thing it shows is high WBC, which we

 his tummy has always been tender. Could be a tumor? Worried though if they

 withdrawing the Doxy. His gums were pink, though. I've had a constant battle 
 with fleas. Advantage was no longer working so I switched  Frontline, but 
 that doesn't seem to be working well either.
 He got fluids, more Doxy, Prenisone, Cyproheptadine, Capstar  AD. 
 On top of that it looks like he has a cat bite o
his tail. Poor baby. Going to go home tonight  spend some one-on-one time 
with him.
 Just being able to talk to you guys about these babies really helps. At

Re: [Felvtalk] Healing thoughts for Bubba

2013-06-19 Thread Margo



Hi Beth,

 Do you think the infection/inflammation is from the possible bite on his tail? Did it abcess? What antibiotic is he being given for that? So the anemia has resolved? That's very positive, and it's not unusual for cats with a fever to be inappetant. I understand that most people don't choose to use nsaids in cats, but ketoprofenseemed to workwonders for Gribble's hih fever.

 Does he need to be completely anesthetised for an ultrasound? Have you had problems with him in the past? I've never needed anyone put out completely, can you discuss sedation with your Vet? Other than a tender belly, are there symptoms that lead you to suspect a tumor?

 I'm sorry he doesn't seem to be improving, will keep the positive energies flowing his way,

Hoping for better news soon,

Margo

Got bloodwork done yesterday. The only thing it shows is high WBC, which we figure, so he is trying to fight some sort of infection. He still has a temp of 104. Eating only a little on his own. Trying to arrange an ultrasound as his tummy has always been tender. Could be a tumor? Worried though if they put him under for the ultrasound (which they will have to do) he will not come out. Thought maybe that would be a blessing in disguise.

Re: [Felvtalk] Healing thoughts for Bubba

2013-06-13 Thread Lee Evans
For fleas in your house you might want to use FOOD GRADE diatomaceous earth. Be 
sure it's the food grade, not the other type because the non-food grade can get 
into the lungs and cause all sorts of problems. I had a major flea infestation 
in my outside enclosure shed which is home to ten cats who are inappropriate 
for house living. My friend gave me a bag of food grade diatomaceous earth 
which I spread on the floor of the shed and swept it on in a very thin layer. I 
closed the shed door for that day and night (good weather so the cats could be 
in their outside completely escape proof area. The next day, when I went into 
the shed and then stepped outside, there were no nasty black little specks 
hopping on my pants leg. Nothing. The fleas were gone. It was then easier for 
the Frontline Plus I use on the cats to do its thing. I even treated part of 
their yard with the stuff with excellent results and no harmful chemicals. The 
food grade diatomaceous earth
 is used as a supplement in feed for cows, horses and dogs so even if the cats 
lick it off their fur, it will do no harm. It's a calcium supplement. It's 
excellent for treating carpets and if you don't mind a grey sheen on your lino 
or wood floors, it's good for that also. For floors, sweep it around the 
woodwork along the walls and down into crevices where the lino doesn't fit so 
well against the wall, if you have that problem. It's great for dark closets 
and behind appliances, even for treating sofas and futons, if you vacuum it out 
after a few hours. Diatomaceous earth works on the principle of dehydrating the 
soft underside of the flea. What you end up with is a dead, dehydrated flea. It 
works on any insect that has a soft underside. 


 
Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty neighbors 
too!

You and Bubba are in my thoughts, Beth.  I hope he recovers soon!

There was a time I thought our Polli was suffering from haemobartonella
because she had a bad bout of fleas and was extremely anemic.  Getting rid
of her fleas was a long process but she's an indoor cat and we were
eventually able to get her flea-free.  I gave her a few flea baths and
would comb through her fur and pick fleas off with tweezers! The vet gave
us Doxy just incase.  Polli recovered slightly but has yet to fully
recover.

To put it bluntly, FeLV sucks.  I hate dealing with it but it breaks my
heart to watch Polli and hear of all these wonderful cats who are battling
this awful disease.

Hi Beth,

 All healing energies headed your way for Bubba. 

 Most URI's are viral, and the most common is herpes. Have you tried famciclovir? Has done wonders for my boys.

 You're very lucky to have access to doxy, now that it is so expensive and scarce, most places don't have it. Hope it does the job. If you can trade the prednisone for prednisolone, it will be more bio-available for Bubba.

The capstar should knock out the fleas if you can keep him from re-infesting. Fortunately Advantage still seems to be effective for me, Frontline never did work.

Wishing him a swift and complete recovery,

All the best,

Margo

Yes, I'm very lucky our shelter has access to a lot of meds. He is over the 
URI, but back to not eating.

Hi Beth,
 
    All healing energies headed your way for Bubba. 
 
    Most URI's are viral, and the most common is herpes. Have you 
tried famciclovir? Has done wonders for my boys.
 
    You're very lucky to have access to doxy, now that it is so 
expensive and scarce, most places don't have it. Hope it does the job. If you 
can trade the prednisone for prednisolone, it will be more bio-available for 
Bubba.  
 
The capstar should knock out the fleas if you can keep him 
from re-infesting. Fortunately Advantage still seems to be effective for me, 
Frontline never did work.
 
Wishing him a swift and complete recovery,
 
All the best,
 
Margo

Hey guys need some positive energy for one of my FeLV fosters - Bubba. He had 
been battling a URI. Tried a couple different antibiotics, and finally, after 
a week the URI cleared   he started eating on his own last Sunday. Well as 
soon as I took him off the Doxy he started going down again. 
We went to the shelter this afternoon  thankfully they had a wonderful vet 
volunteering who has experience in FeLV kitties.
We're wondering now if he has Hemobart since he starting going down after 
withdrawing the Doxy. His gums were pink, though. I've had a constant battle 
with fleas. Advantage was no longer working so I switched  Frontline, but that 
doesn't seem to be working well either.
He got fluids, more Doxy, Prenisone, Cyproheptadine, Capstar  AD. 
On top of that it looks like he has a cat bite o his tail. Poor baby. Going to 
go home tonight  spend some one-on-one time with him.
Just being able to talk to you guys about these babies really helps. At least 
I feel like someone understands how helpless I feel sometimes.

Sorry to hear of Bubba's woes, Beth.  Sending good thoughts to both of you.
I'm sure he feels your love, and that helps!
