Kelly, Thanks for explaining, but the vet is sure taking his/her time. Hope Tiffany's health can wait. I love special needs kitties (have 13 myself) and my vet is on the ball within hours. For me, meds refills/prescriptions are administered within same day as seen. The most I have ever had to

He is having a hard time calculating the dosage for some reason. I am not a vet - know lots about administering fluids, assisted feeding, URI, pilling, CRF, I have kind of a specialty with heart disease kitties as my soul kitty has heart disease - but nothing about hbp (yet, I will learn now).

Kelly, Tiffany has been in your organization's care since (at least) last Wednesday 06-17-09 and she still is not receiving her medical regime for high pressure? That is almost a week. What is the holdup? Five days without her proper medicine cannot be good. The longer the wait for medical

Hi Lora, The holdup is that we are waiting for the vet to prescribe the medication. None of us can prescribe it ourselves. He does not carry that medication in stock either, so we will need to get the prescription filled once we have it (I hope Monday) which won't be a problem, but we do need to

Kelley, When I took Fred in because he was twitching and getting spacey, it was because of high blood pressure, my vet gave me his meds right then and there, it shouldn't take that long. Usual starting dose is a quarter tab of a 2.5gr of amlodipine (brand name norvasc). Almost all of
