Re: [feline-heart] Karen
- Thanks Jeanne for all the good information you have given me. I sent a
letter to the group just now updating some things. I hope Dom continues to
do well, I have heard great things about the Dilitizem. Snoopy will NOT be
given any more aspirin......I think you are correct, some cats can tolerate
it, others can't. Snoopy's stomach is just too sensitive.
All the best to you and Dom,
Karen, Benji and Snoopy
