an update of sorts

An update from Perf's mom:

Well, Perfy is not a big fan of his medicine! He's on his prednisolone one time a day as well as 50mg of green tea extract, which i found in tablet form! I have to break the pill into quarters because he foams at the mouth if the pill isn't put into his throat in the complete center. He's supposed to have fish oil as well everyday- but he refuses his food if I "hide" it in his smelly fish stinky goodness and gags if I give it to him thru a syringe. So we've put that on hold for now.

He has "tolerated" the ES-Clear once a day. He gets .5ml a day and could get more but he tries to claw his way from the dropper! Good thing I love my furbabies!

As you can see, he's not the best patient but I'll keep at it! He's eating more and he girls have stopped picking on him! So i think he's feeling better!

He still sleeps on the pillow next to mine on my bed. It's such a comfort to have him there!

Thank you so much fortour amazing words! He had a few bad days this week with horrible diahrea but now he seems to be better! Some days are good and some not so good. But as long as he's still my boy and still wants to eat I'll do all I can do for him!

Thank you!
Penny

This doesn't work for every cat but some of mine will take medicines more easily if I put them in sticky soft cheese.

Keep on eating Perf!

Taking medicine is the worst. Glad you are feeling a little better. Get all better soon!

Penny,
it sounds like you are keeping Perf happy, and we think you are doing a fab job. It must feel like you are running a kitty hospice, and your lovies are lucky to have you taking such good care of them in their old age.

Smooches

Hope Perf is doing ok...Brighton is slowly improving but still visiting the litterbox way too much and producing dime sized clump instead of egg sized.

You might try Duralactin Liquid for your Omegas--it has milk protein in it and Brighton loves it...licks it off the syringe.
