1232362 tn?1333139006 this was the link that Montyclm sent me for that bio-collar. its in the UK but I see no reason why they wouldn't ship internationally, I have ordered from the UK alright before and the shipping was very reasonable too. good luck. http://bioflow.co.
Avatar m tn I have a continuous problem with thick mucous in my throat. I must clear my throat a hundred times a day. My larnyx gets so full of the thick mucous that I almost choke and it causes my eyes to water. When this happens I hack up about a quarter cup of the stuff. I went to an ENT specialist who diagnosed sinusitis due to restricted airflow because of a deviated septum. After two surgeries for this there is no improvment. I've tried Musinex and steroid nose sprays. Nothing seems to help.
184674 tn?1360864093 It's the clay, non-clumping litter that I've decided to go with because the clumping litter costs more and yes, we tried the clumping litter for multiple cats that's got the baking soda in it and whatnot--and found it covers the odor no better or worse than the cheaper clay litter.
2186126 tn?1384961026 One of our cats was diagnosed with diabetes two weeks ago, she also had blood pressure problems., After a week of trying to get her diabetes count down to normal, the two vets working on her said she couldn't be helped, and we had to put her to sleep. It is so hard to see them sick, and even harder to decide what to do. You wish they would die peacefully in their sleep, but it seldom works that way. Is your vet any help in deciding what to do?
685562 tn?1447158831 First of all, I deal with Anxiety just about every day, either mental, or physical. And I dont want this to sound like a rant, or Conspiricy theroy, etc, but I do want everyone to hear me out. Im sick of hearing about all of us getting the same remarks from Doctors "its anxiety..its depression..etc" Sounds to me like they partied to much in Med school and use the whole "mental health" thing to make themselfs look smarter..or like they have the answer.
Avatar f tn Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds.
Avatar f tn Hello. My cat (Sancho) is 13.5 years old. He was diagnosed with diabetes about two years ago and currently needs insulin shots twice a day and a special diet to control his sugar levels. We took him in for his annual vaccines and blood work this week and the vet noticed a small lump on the top of his head. A biopsy was sent to the lab and the results show that it is a mast cell tumor (malign).
Avatar m tn It does sound like kidney or diabetes, or kidney and diabetes. Please get him in to see a doctor. The doctor can tell you what treatment costs. It is not going to get better, and it sounds very acute. I would take him to the vet tomorrow.
Avatar f tn I am a 35 year old female, live in the bay area. I have had diarrhea for almost two years. Throw up most mornings and randomly through out the day for about a year. I either have no appetite, or cant seem to ever feel full, mostly no appetite. I am always tired and feeling depressed. About two years ago I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, and diabetes about five months ago. 6 months ago I had my first attack. I woke up and with in 10 min had hives all over my forearms.
Avatar n tn What I have heard tends to be experimental only, and not accessible to the public. Besides the cost (most people don't care to have to pay high vet costs, which puts you in a rare, special class) there's the problem of recovery. Getting a pet to recovery from intensive surgery can be very tricky (you can't explain to them you're making them worse to make them better down the road). Have you gotten a second opinion, and is the local vet with a fully equipped animal hospital?
207091 tn?1337713093 In an older, possibly sick cat eating whatever, unless there is a medical need (which in this case there may be) there is little reason to change and cause the cat emotional stress. However, in younger cats, pet owners should not play this game. "Finickiness" is most often trained into a cats psyche by owner anxiety at cats who do not horry to eat. Many cats are grazers, unlike dogs, but can and should be trained as kittens to eat meals.
Avatar f tn Pet insurance excludes almost everything I've ever had to pay a vet for, in years of owning cats and dogs. It's not worth the money to me.

11105290 tn?1437846133 Does he really think this will do anything to restore her hearing? steroids are also very dangerous for cats.....can lead to diabetes and other health issues...be warned!!! make absolutely sure this med promises some good returns before risking even more problems for her... lets all keep discussing this everyone....whats your opinion on another kitty for Sam?
Avatar f tn My Tink is going on 2 years with it and diabetes. Cushing's is very rare in cats and I haven't been able to find anyone either who is living with a cat that has it. It can be discouraging and I hope that since your post in February 2011 you have had many more months of happiness with your kitty. I would like to hear more from you. We are now having litter box issues on occasion.
Avatar n tn its intestines were hanging out after one of my cats got it. I cleaned the intestines off,pushed them back in through the tiny hole in its side, dried it off and superglued it. Froggie lived! After that, I started using it on myself... Just use a small, very small, amount on the cut and let it dry. Don't let it tough any other surface, like a neighboring finger!!! Works wonders. It's also good if you play a stringed instrument and your fingertips get sore.
874521 tn?1424120397 The home page talks about Duke's story and how he almost died of IBD, and how all of her cats are now on the raw diet. She also gives facts on what's in dry and canned food, what our felines need vs. what they THINK they want, how the Food Administration manages the release of these ridiculously bad diets etc. Did you know that the Food Administration Company tests the foods for three months only? THREE MONTHS.
Avatar f tn You are more suceptible to food poisoning so make sure anything you eat is not expired, cooked accordingly, correct temperature, never leave food out, always wash fruits and veggies very well before eating, wash hands very well after handling raw or undercooked foods, your immune system is lowered in pregnancy so wash your hands before eating and after being in contact with anyone in public and avoid sick people at all costs.
Avatar f tn If it becomes necessary to use a similar treatment 'long term' talk to your vet about a much better alternative of ATOPICA Its only so far approved in use for dogs, but has been successfully used in cats for the treatment of EGC. I haven't had to go to this treatment, so far, diet and a topical treatment (holistic)I am using appears to be working. I will give you two websites for more info. I also suggest you post this question on our ASK AN EXPERT FORUM.
Avatar f tn I wish someone would come up with a way to resolve this OCD in cats because that's exactly what it is. Good luck to all. Nice to know I'm not the only one experiencing this.
Avatar n tn It is a lifelong problem common in certain breeds but possible in all breeds of both dogs and cats. It is also called rodent ulcers ..not sure if its the same or a variation of the problem. Cortisone wouldn't be enough. My vet treated with steroid shots too...but a stronger one. (forget which one). It's about $25 per shot and it reoccurs every few months. One vet misdiagnosed and wanted to do biopsies after biopsies, another vet talked about cancer.....
405614 tn?1329147714 I am just learning about hyperthyroidism, but it seems like weight loss happens to almost all of the cats. That is how I just discovered it in my 14 year old female. She went from 11 pounds to 7 pounds in the past year while seeming perfectly healthy. Just like you, I have been feeding a lot since the diagnosis, but she has not gained weight at all yet. Your cat shouldn't need to lose weight if it is hyperthyroid, so it sounds to me like you may have some other problem.
Avatar n tn Suture site reactions refer to allergic-type, inflammatory skin reactions that some cats and other animals develop because of the type of suture being used in the surgical incision repair. Basically, suture site reactions are immune-mediated inflammatory reactions that occur when the cat's body decides to reject the foreign bodies (the sutures or stitches) that the vet has just implanted into the skin.
365714 tn?1292202708 I don't think the Wellness caused Waldo's kidney or diabetes issues. I really don't. I think that diabetes just develops in some cats, and it can cause kidney problems......but, w/ age many cats develop kidney disease too. BTW, did your vet tell you specifically to give Waldo 1/2 cup of day of dry food?
Avatar f tn Most recently a vet prescribed prednisone, which I know causes diabetes in cats, but he thought it would be worth the risk if it helped, assuming that it may be something internal. A CT scan a month ago didn't show any abnormalities, so I refused to allow the internal medicine specialist to charge me $1600 for an endoscopy exam. I don't think he has any issues with nausea other than an empty tummy that hurts. I found some articles about FOPS online as well as a video.
Avatar f tn Please help I've took some pictures although I know aren't the best but if they help in trying to figure out what he has it would be greatly appreciated. We have tried dieting with certain food groups to check for food allergies and his condition did not change, he is an outdoor cat and we have also tried keeping him in for a month + and yet again no change to his condition. We've tried bathing him with hypoallergenic shampoos and yet again, no result.

544292 tn?1268886268 Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
1358341 tn?1282213443 I really want to know what this fluids are because I'm sure in France, USA sold something that is not suitable for cats. And it is dangerous for all other cats. Vet told me it was USA fluids, for USA fluid therapy. If you all believe in fluids, then this is wrong product: No bags in it, just a seringue that would be good for a cow, more than 50ml and very long, longer then 5cm. Not even a dentist uses this thing !!!
Avatar f tn A Lyme disease vaccine was developed during the early 1990s, and after getting FDA approval in 1998, it was marketed by GlaxoSmithKline under the name LYMErix. The vaccine, however, was pulled from the market in 2002 citing low demand and is no longer available. The last few people vaccinated in 2002 are no longer protected against Lyme disease, as protection was not long lasting.
