The wife was just picking on me because I’m getting a new conceal carry piece.
The cat got sick one month after we moved into the house. He just had surgery then we had the flea problem that led to the old cat’s death.
He’s been alright for nearly two months, now he’s vomiting again. At first he would throw up and go straight back to the food bowl. Then he got lethargic (maybe dehydrated?). The vet is keeping him under observation.
A lot of coworkers swear by this vet. I also know some students who have interned there.
Change your cats food.
merrickpetcare.com. I changed my cats food to the before grain. Cats cannot digest grains.
They also have mushy food (can) that is grain free.
Someone posted upthread that grains attribute (not exact wording) to hairballs. If your cat has a crap load of undigested grains in his belly, add some furballs and you have a problem.
I still feel guilty over the loss of my eldest, Kitty. I wish I knew then what I know now. We were together 19 years, 1 week and 2 days.
She died, with me, on 12/16/10.
Is your kitty a free form crunchie eater?
That's a good sign. But please, if you don't have your cats blood panels from your previous vet, ask him to do one. Blood panels tell MUCH about what is going on. That is what determined my Mimi's diagnosis. All her panels came out great...except for her liver.
With the biopsy and blood panel (liver should be highest 112, hers was 216). Because of all the testing, they were able to pin point the problem. Not a cancerous mass but a diaphragmatic hernia, caused by blunt force trauma. That wonderful vet fixed it.
Before we found that out, she was diagnosed w/ chronic asthma, which the 1st vet just dismissed her coughing because of her hair. Yes, it cost money;however, we took these furries in and therefore it is our responsibility to make sure they are cared for.
