14156Re: Morag back at vet with rapid breathing
- Sep 2, 2003Sarah,
Thanks for asking about Boo Kitty, she's acting like herself again,
I just wish that she would get her appetite back to 100%, she's
eating, but several small meals a day. Her hotspots are also coming
back, but since this is where it all started with her, I'm going to
leave them be for the Cardio to look at. Her vet seems to think
they may be stemming from food allergy, for many years she's eaten
chicken based food, I am switching her to mainly seafood, to see if
that helps, and also because seafood is supposed to be heart healthy.
I didn't know that Lasix is hard on Kittys, I will also ask the
cardiologist about that too.
Sarah, I don't have any answers for you, if anything just more
questions for myself. Please just know that I have you and Morag in
my thoughts, and keep in touch.
