Re: YAY! good vet check today!

I think it's funny that he is so little that he FIT into the booster seat when curled into a ball. BUT to his defense...he gained 2 lbs so he is a whopping 44 lbs now! :)

Re: my damn cats

Can your husband help? One of our cats isn't so bad but the other turns into a Tasmania devil. Usually Austin will hold the cat. You hold the two back feet in one hand. Then you put your other hand on their chest and sort of push their arms back-so they can't move them. And then I get the mouth. I ...

Re: my damn cats

I wonder if they can use a convenia injection instead of the amoxi and what about transdermal pred? My friend has a super stress-case cat who she can't pill and so she uses transdermal pred that she gets made here at the compounding pharmacy. You just run it on to the inside of their ear. Good idea...

Well I finally had to start wrapping them in a towel and holding them upright (almost like they were standing on back two legs) while I sat indian style. then I just snuggle them until I feel them swallow.

Re: help with skin issue my vet is even stumped.

I have 2 shampoos I was rotating between until I found this organic stuff. Those 2 are: prescription pharmaseb shampoo (antifungal) and Tropiclean Oatmeal with vitamin E & tea tree. They both helped a "smidge" but really never made me feel like they were fantastic. And never left him s...
