Neutering aid for 1 cat in Tampin, Negeri Sembilan (Rusni bt Abd Manaf’s)

We have provided a full sponsorship of RM95 for the neutering of this cat.

Sukacita saya memohon bantuan subsidi bg pemandulan kucing betina berikut. Untuk pengetahuan doktor kucing ini kucing stray yg telah datang rumah saya mkan stiap hri dlm tempoh 1 bulan ini. Saya rasa kucing ini  tidak bertuan sbb sentiasa datang makan dan tidor didepan rumah saya, oleh krana  risau dia boleh bunting maka saya telah mandulkn dia pada  26/11/2019. Saya namakan dia Acik. Umur mgkin dlm area 8 bulan – 1 tahun. Kebetulan pd masa ini klinik ada membuat promosi potogan hrga pemandulan  kucing betina dn jantan. Maka saya ambil peluang ini utk mndulkn acik. Semoga permohonan ini dpt diprtimbangkn. Berikut adalah gmbr acik.
Sekian terima kasih
yang benar,
RUSNI BINTI ABD MANAF

Pronefra to the rescue!

I tried the Renate again at dinner time and this time, both Cleo and Pole refused to eat it.

But in the afternoon, as a standby measure, I had already bought over a bottle of Pronefra from my friend, Connie. Connie’s dog LOVES the Pronefra.

Well, dogs are always more obliging, in general. Cats are more picky and fussy.

Cleo and Pole are near-impossible.

So after dinner today, I syringed out the carefully measured Pronefra using a 1ml syringe. The dosage is 1ml per 4kg of body weight for cats.

I tried Cleo first.

Cleo fought and it was impossible to get the syringe anywhere near her mouth. I had no choice but to empty the contents of the syringe into a bowl and try my luck.

Believe it or not….

Cleo happily licked it all up!!  Every single bit, licked the bowl totally clean and even looked up to ask for more.

Then, it was Pole’s turn. This time, I straight away emptied the syringe into a bowl.

Pole….licked it all up very happily!!!

I could not believe my luck.

Cleo and Pole actually liked the Pronefra!!

No need to syringe into their mouths. They are willing to lick it all up. It must be so, so palatable.

Let’s hope they still like it tomorrow!

Pole and Cleo’s check-up

Along with Indy, we also took Pole and Cleo to the vet’s today.

Now, this is a longer story….

Both don’t travel well in the car, especially Cleo.

Pole

Pole has been on subcut three times a week, so her creatinine (274 down to 218 today) and urea readings have come down, which is good (but still a bit high). However, her phosphate level is 1.89 (normal range is 1.00-2.42). Although it’s still normal, the vet prefers to bring it down to below 1.5.

Pole will continue with the three times weekly subcut. The vet says to try Renate, a phosphate binder – it’s a highly palatable powder to be sprinkled onto food.

Cleo

We reduced Cleo’s subcut to once a week in mid-October when her creatinine went down to an impressive 165 (from the previous 213).  However, with the once-weekly subcut, today, her creatinine shot back up to 210. This means, she needs the twice-weekly subcut again but this is going to be a problem because Cleo is SO stressed from the subcut. Her phosphate level is 1.87. Like Pole, the vet would like to bring it down to below 1.5.

Cleo should also go on Renate.

So we came back with 5 packs of Renate.

Tried it on both – as expected, both thought it was poison and refused to eat their food. Finally, Cleo ate, but did not finish. Pole refused to eat, but was persuaded to eat around the Renate. Maybe she had a bit of it, because within minutes, she vomited everything out.

Sigh…

Bunny ate up the Renate. Yum, yum…

It is almost impossible to feed Pole and Cleo any capsules or tablets. Liquid medication MIGHT be possible with Pole. I don’t know about Cleo. Later today, I’ll have to do subcut for both of them. Please wish me luck.

I did also ask the vet if we could try this: https://www.vetsend.co.uk/virbac-pronefra/.  It is highly recommended by some vets. The vet says it is okay to try. But we should not give both Renate and Pronefra – it’s either one. So, let’s try the Renate first.

I will give it another try later this evening. If Pole still refuses, I will go for the Pronefra already. The description looks good:

These ingredients have the following four vital effects:

  • Calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate help bind phosphate in the gastrointestinal tract, reducing its availability.
  • Chitosan helps to bind urea-toxins in the gastrointestinal tract.
  • The polysaccharides of the Astragalus help maintain normal kidney structure by reducing the progression of fibrosis.
  • The marine oligopeptides contribute to balanced blood pressure.

The power of Pronefra

  • Limits availability of phosphate
  • Binds toxins in the kidneys
  • Supports and maintains normal kidney structure
  • Pronefra contributes to balanced blood pressure

Cow and Bunny were waiting for Pole and Cleo to return home.

We were not able to get any urine sample from Pole or Cleo because both had already emptied their bladders. The vet checked with ultrasound and found both bladders extremely small so we decided not to risk drawing out urine with a needle. Without the urine test, we are unable to stage the CKD. But I think both have some sort of CKD because I’ve noticed the frequent drinking of water.

On the other hand, Bunny and Indy don’t drink frequently at all. Bunny’s phosphate level was an impressive 1.44 about two weeks ago.

Let’s hope we can get their phosphate levels down to 1.5. It isn’t alarming yet, but it’s good to address it when it’s early.

As for their urine, if I can get a sample, I hope I can rush it to any clinic in Subang Jaya to get it tested for UPC and SG. But the challenge is – can I get a sample while they are urinating?

Indy to the vet’s (post Indy-Ginger fight)

Indy went for his B12 jab today.  Luckily I mentioned about the wounds from the Indy-Ginger fight because without even parting his fur, the vet could see that the skin around that area is all red and inflamed.

Oh dear….and we could not see a single thing and thought all was well!

The fur was shaven and it reveals two bite wounds and several scratches. The skin is inflamed and upon closer examination, the puncture wounds have closed up but an abscess might develop later, so Clavomox is needed (7 days).

Aren’t we lucky we had your wounds checked, Indy?

The vet thought of continuing Indy with steroids for his loose stool problem, but we finally decided we will give the steroids a rest and see how things go. If with or without the steroids makes no difference, then it would be better to go without it.

For now, it’s just the B12 jab and we can continue with the tablets from next week to spare Indy from the car trips which he doesn’t quite like.

Bunny Bright Eyes and nice paws!!!

Look at Bunny’s paws!!!!

That’s a classic “Tabs” pose!

And I must give full credit to Petdiatrics’ Ophtal for Bunny’s bright eyes. With a daily dose of Ophtal, the staining (discharge) from Bunny’s eyes has stopped.

Ophtal contains antioxidants which help with eye health and overall health too.

“It’s not over, Ginger….”

Watching Ginger….

Indy’s wound healed remarkably well. I’m surprised at how fast it healed. Was it the Biosilver spray? That was the only thing I applied onto his wound.

Funny, though, because previously the Biosilver has never really worked before…haha.

This goes to show that “there are more things in heaven and earth than is dreamt of in our philosophy”!

I cannot even find a single trace of his wound today!! Or am I looking in the wrong place?!!
