Not trichomonosis or coccidiosis

Ok, the vet said it’s not trichomonosis or coccidiosis. So, we have ruled these two out. She suspects it is a immune mediated bowel disease. We did not have time to discuss as this was through text messages.

I guess that sounds like an autoimmune condition.

Typical Indy – baffling the vets.

Meanwhile, life goes […]

Feline Coccidiosis – the search continues

Indy had more blood in his stools today. Sigh.

My search has led me to this: https://www.pethealthnetwork.com/cat-health/cat-diseases-conditions-a-z/coccidiosis-cats

Again, the symptoms fit: bloody stools.

But this link talks about more symptoms: https://www.petmd.com/cat/conditions/infectious-parasitic/c_ct_coccidiosis

And Indy doesn’t have some of the said symptoms like “weak, feverish and weight loss”.

I’ll need to check with Indy’s vet again – […]

Feline trichomonosis and differential diagnosis for Indy

I posted for help and suggestions at a raw feeding FB group and someone shared that her cats had feline trichomonosis.

So I looked it up and found this link: https://www.americanveterinarian.com/news/update-on-feline-trichomonosis-to-treat-or-not-to-treat

Diarrhea associated with T. foetus can be semi-soft but may be mucoid or bloody and is usually not accompanied by other signs (eg, weight […]

Bunny Bright Eyes

Bunny’s vision seemed to have improved ever since he was on the plasma eye gel due to an ulcer (we suspect inflicted by sharp-shooter Indy during a stand-off).

Now, he not only screams at his enemies like Ginger and Heidi when he comes out (to their territory), but he also chases them. And in the […]

Indy’s bone broth and some reflections

Indy simply loves his bone broth!

I don’t know how much Indy is supposed to eat, so I give the broth to him as a snack in between meals.

Of course everyone else wants it too!

Heidi absolutely loves it too!

Sedap, ya?

Making bone broth for the cats

Desperate to find a solution for Indy’s loose stool problem, I joined an FB group of raw feeders for cats and was advised to give Indy some bone broth as it is supposed to be very healing for the gut. It is also good for the liver and for the joints.

And it’s also good […]

The Princess and the Queen

The Princess and the Pea!

Pole really likes this pile of cushions.

Her Royal Majesty, the Queen.

It’s all about “the leg”!

The boycott and the demand

Either it was too early, but Ginger’s just being Ginger. I think it’s more of the latter. Ginger refused to eat his Chicken today. He did the usual whining and walking in and out of the kitchen demanding for whatever he wanted.

Ginger: I’m boycotting Chicken and demanding for Duck or Quail […]

Oh no…..(Indy’s news)

I was full of hope that Alpteses would work for Indy. He had one sachet yesterday, spread over lunch (11am) and dinner (5pm), as per the instructions.

I watched Indy and the sandpit all night and was too happy that there were no stools for the day until….

At 10.52pm when Indy went to the […]
