1560663 tn?1298050127 Also try and brush your cats, even if you think they have short hair and don't need it, it's not true, if you don't brush your cats they can develop hairballs that cannot be passed. In cats with megacolon or chronic constipation the last thing you need is something else to block your cat. Like you all know I have 7 cats and I manage to brush them all, even if its a little bit every few days.
3227046 tn?1458317076 Sepsis is very serious and to have had surgery on top of that- wow! People can be different in recovery/healing time for surgery and if you look at a thread about sepsis on here, it looks like that can be very draining. A key is to rest up a lot right now and not try to overdo. Take care of yourself and don't feel guilty for doing that! Your loved ones want you to get as well as you can and that takes time!

Avatar n tn My MD was at a total loss as to what caused my original pain which returned as soon as my pancreatitis pain resolved. I was lucky in that the pancreatitis that was due to the ERCP resolved quickly. Still and all I was out of work for 3 weeks. Tracie, I hope you are feeling better. When did you first realize that something was wrong? You went home after your ERCP, right? Did you end up admitted through the ER?
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.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Not positive if I've joined (also having trouble bookmarking blog); but hope I'm in. First time I've been back in a few weeks since I had to put Teagan to rest. To be honest I hope to NEVER need to refresh myself on the terrible disease. But, you all gave me such comfort when Teagan left me. I hope to keep reading posts to keep up with you all.
931217 tn?1283484935 [16] The incidence of mammary tumors in female cats is roughly half that seen in dogs.[17] Mammary cancer is extremely rare in male dogs. [17] In dogs, the chances of developing a mammary tumor increase with age and vary with breed.[13,17] There is no apparent protective effect of having a litter for dogs or cats. [17,20] About half of canine mammary tumors are malignant, whereas 85-90% of feline mammary tumors are malignant.
Avatar n tn (instead leaning towards pancreatitis) Unfortunately, the last piece of foam was hiding in his stomach and was 100% blocked. As an oncology nurse myself, I have learned a great deal from this experience. ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS listen to the family. If they say, "something is wrong, he isn't acting right....." I listen. Instincts are an innate trait and we must learn to follow them!
Avatar m tn A Vet will answer your question. I've posted in one of the forums when I had a question on diabetes in cats. I can understand your apprehension with surgery. Let us know how kitty is doing and good luck.
12679876 tn?1426981493 The vet said he felt like Cole had either IBS or IBD because his stool was never solid but nothing was showing up in the blood work. In regards to Henry; if it was/is pancreatitis- would ulcers be present? I'm not sure what her next step is, but I guess once she gets the last set of results in I will know more. I was just happy she got some food in him. She said she would be watching for the vomiting, but hoping he keeps it down. And hopefully the B12 helps with that too.
5591135 tn?1380171656 my kitty gizmo is constipated . I happened to be in the garage when he came out to use the box and he let a ton of air out and was standing on the side of the box arched funny. I had to pull it out for him. What is good for that?
Avatar f tn I always judge it by when kitty loses interest in grooming and eating. grooming especially is a sign of how happy a cat is. I'm so sorry for kitty's poor health. i do hope she gets better.
Avatar n tn Calling my vet friend, she told me it is more serious for cats to stop eating for 48+ hours than it is for dogs and people. She said to take Kitty in to be checked for Hepatic lipidosis and look at the bilirubin level when the blood work returns. She also said vets at emergency clinics usually give a 10mg tab of famotidine when cats come in. She also suggested milk thistle, might be useful. I found some useful info on H.L. here: . . .
556014 tn?1230604478 Another example of vets not listening to pet owners,,,man, if they only took the blood tests in the first place.... Man oh Man,,,you are in some kind of trouble....I am so worried for you...I just hope on your information later and visit w/your pet, the jaundice is healing and your pet will make it after all the trouble this pet has been through,,,,my goodness, more thing has went thru so much...and you too.... I am so sorry for you....I will pray for you....
541150 tn?1306037443 I know we do not have much experience dealing with Inflammatory Bowel Disease in cats, but it will make me feel better to know that I have your support.
Avatar n tn well I got The walmart Ranitidine for it, amazingly after about 4 days of using this I started having normal BM, it took me a while to put two and tow together then I read on line in another article that this had helped in lab tests but not tried in cats yet. NONE of the vets had even heard of it, well, it only takes it 12-24 hrs to start working acording to this drs chart.
Avatar f tn The following adverse events were reported voluntarily during post-approval use of the product in dogs and cats in foreign markets: death, tremors/ataxia, seizures, anaphylaxis, acute pulmonary edema, facial edema, injection site reactions (alopecia, scabs, necrosis, and erythema), hemolytic anemia, salivation, pruritus, lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea, and inappetance.
Avatar f tn I've had the skin test but never the blood test. And then I was bitten by 3 separate stray cats (was working in the veterinary field). All of these infections were treated w/IV anti-b's, but it was in the midst of them that things really started to go awry. So this is why your post about bacteria clicks with me... Anyway, thanks again. Hope all's well with you.

874521 tn?1424120397 And hey, did you know the bacteria they found in him is very common in healthy cats and cats who come from shelters? Think Dillan might have given it to him? They also have found this bacteria in people with cancer. Keeps getting better for me...doesn't it.
4520139 tn?1355852769 But, that doesn't have to be done now, maybe in the future when you don't have the teeth issue to think about. I have had all 3 of my cats in for cleanings and they have been around the $500 - $700 range. One was more because of the number of extractions they did because the cost of each ranged from $50-$200 depending on the tooth. IMHO I would probably go with #3 if only because you may be able to go longer without kitty having to have another cleaning.
12980073 tn?1429819661 The sluggist circulation present in congestive heart disease, the circulatory colapse that acompanies shock, Cushing's disease or the cortisone-like drugs that mimic it, intestinal bleeding, and Addison’s disease have all been occasionally associated with small-to-moderate increases in BUN. Kidney damage in cats resulting from repeated bouts of FUS or FUS obstruction of the cat's urethra can both cause the pet's blood BUN levels to rise.
Avatar f tn When my red point Siamese was really sick, the vet recommended canned pumpkin for her, if I could get her to eat it. Amazingly, cats do seem to like the stuff, even my picky Siamese. The poor thing did seem to have an upset stomach a lot. She learned to "go to your box" when I heard the telltale sound of you know what. And, she did it in her box, just like people do in the toilet when our stomachs disagree with us.
877337 tn?1249848050 After few months my LIVER levels came little bit up and my antibodies were also high. As iam already have pancreatitis they said sludge in gallbladder which would affect liver and now Methimazole liver levels up NOTGOOD .As we were on TTC for babies they said i should take immediate option. So we choose RAI thought after 6months to 1 year we can start TTC .But now on HYPO i feel more severs symptoms then hyper .
251222 tn?1270939717 Oh Wanna, stopping back in to add - if you would like to know which doctors and hospital in our area that were not capable of diagnosing diabetes, pancreatitis and gall stones.. and instead sent a me home with prevacid.. I would be more than happy to email that to you.
Avatar n tn Basically, whatever your friend is doing does not appear to be in the interest of true recovery... seems more of a misguided attempt to stop using. My take anyway. I am as interested as you are in seeing all the replies on this one. This for me is purely informational :-)) I am not an expert but listen attentively and am most interested in this topic...let's see what we learn.
429155 tn?1205676864 MY PERSONAL DIARY OF OXYCONTIN WITHDRAWAL. May I briefly fill in a little background.I am David aged 55 and employed as a postman/driver/sorter, well up until 38 months ago I had never been into hospital,well boy was that about to change.
Avatar f tn Making sure she knew that we were taking care of her she was just fading away she couldn't walk we had slings to help her walk Lacey will always be in our hearts forever this is the 5th dog we've had to put to sleep in 20 years my 2 cats had to be put down too.Our pets aren't just pets there members of the family.
Avatar f tn I prayed and prayed that she would give us one final parting gift and die on her own in her sleep...but she is SUCH a fighter and refused to surrender to this thing. We keep her comfortabel with sub-q infusions daily, Calcitriol, Aluminum hydroxide and novox. One day she seems bad and then the next day she is up and climbing a full flight of stairs and getting on the sofa by herself! Other days she can barely stand.
385668 tn?1301797480 0) You'll wake up in the recovery room, and while you'll surely have some will be super relieved, b/c it will be over. Lastly....PLEASE do not focus on the wording of the consent form too too much...they HAVE to conver their bases and lay out the risks. Surgery related complications (ie...dying on the table, etc) are VERY rare...and a surgeon would never operate on you if you weren't a good candidate, like he already told you. Also, they could do these surgeries in their sleep.
