  • Hi, just had another few quick questions. After Griffin's dental today, the vet prescribed some clindamycin for him since his gums bled a little. I have been pondering all night and have been fearful of giving because of his severe IBD. It has taken us months on top of months to stabilize and we finally have. Everytime he has been on ab's he has had severe diarrhea, so I already...

  • Hi everyone, just wanted to thank you all for your help and advice on the anesthesia and dental situation we were in. Just an update, we took Griffin today and his vet hand scaled his teeth and polished them afterward. She did an excellent job on what can be seen. He has 2 places right above both upper, back canines where there is a little redness and inflammation after the scaling...

  • Hi there, just wanted to see if I can post for some help with a dental dilemma we are facing with Griffin. We have not been here much lately as we have been hanging out at Feline pancreatitis and Feline assist feed mostly. Griffin's IBD and pancreatitis has been the more pressing issue lately. Griffin has some tartar build-up on his teeth. About every 1-2 years we go through this...

  • Hi there, Griffin and I here to ask a heart related question. We have been spending every spare second of our time over at Feline IBD, pancreatitis and Assist feed. Fortunately little Griffin's heart disease is stable, but his irritable bowel disease is not. We have tried some traditional synthetic meds that have just been ineffective so far. Tomorrow, we are picking up some 4...

  • Hi all, we are hard at work trying to treat Griffin's IBD and elevated liver ALT and possible pancreatitis. He has had the fpli which was negative, but I am fairly sure there is some inflammation. His appetite has been off for weeks now and we have definitely come to the conclusion that he is nauseous. Reglan did nothing but make him weird, so with the help of the folks at feline...

  • Hi there, I am bouncing around some ideas for trying to get some of the hard tartar off of Griffin's teeth. He has had 3 dental cleanings and he is only 5. I really am trying to avoid another one because of the possible negative effects of the anesthesia. I just wanted to see if anyone can vouch for any of these oral gels that have been recommended. The ones I am researching are...

  • Hi there, just learned something and want to see how others feel about this. I spoke (by means of someone on the CRF list leading me to) to a lady that performs non-anesthesia dentals. She suggested that I use a diluted solution (25% peroxide and 75% water) to swab on Griffin's gums to help with the bacteria in his mouth due to gingivitis. I just want to make sure that this will be...

  • Hi there, gosh we have not posted here in such a long time. I hope everyone's kittys are doing as well as possible. I think about you all a lot, but we have been focused on feline IBD, assist feed and allergy lists. Griffin's latest greatest challenge is his horrible allergies to food and environmental dusts and molds and so on. The question of vaccines recently came up on the...

  • Hi there we have a question. Someone posted either here or on another list about a condition that their cat had where their skin was itchy and twitchy and I believe rumply was a word that was used. They also stated that their cat shook their feet like they were stepping out of water. If that person is reading this, can you please remind me of that particular condition and the...

  • Hi there, we took Griffin to the vet yesterday and had some bloodwork rechecked and had him re-examined. Everything looked well with his physical exam as well as bloodwork - all normal. We are working together (his vet and I) to determine what to do next. He is still quite lethargic and seems to still be reacting to the food (lamb and pea) that he is on with itchy skin and an upset...
