Happy little Betsy (Day 3)

An update on 13th Jan 2020: Betsy is now adopted by Connie and Connie will cover all her medical expenses including the 3rd eyelid flap surgery. This is now no longer a one-off special project for us.

Here are some photos of happy little Betsy on Day 3:

Betsy’s rescue (Days 1 & 2)

An update on 13th Jan 2020: Betsy is now adopted by Connie and Connie will cover all her medical expenses including the 3rd eyelid flap surgery. This is now no longer a one-off special project for us.

It was early yesterday morning that our long-time volunteer, Connie, told me about a Shih Tzu. The […]

Meat broth for our cats, CKD and “enough” water intake

I’ve been writing quite a bit about the benefits of bone broth and at least two other friend’s pets have also benefited from it.

Recently, I found out that bone broth is not recommended for humans with chronic kidney failure so this should apply to cats and dogs too.

It says so here as well: […]

A subcut session with Cleo, Bunny and Pole

Bunny and Cleo have subcut twice a week, 200ml each time. Pole has it three times per week at 150ml each time.

Indy has been off subcut since November 2019. He is not dehydrated and he drinks bone broth daily.

Today, we figured out how to do Cleo’s subcut on the same day as the […]

Pole and Ginger’s updates

I should have updated earlier, but this time, I was really busy!

Pole stopped having the frequent urge to urinate on that very afternoon itself! From previous experience (including my own), that is normally the case. The pain of UTI is excruciating, but with antibiotics, the problem normally resolves in less than a day.

I […]

Ginger to vet’s (Bushy White got him, after all)

Soon after coming back from the emergency vet visit with Pole, Ginger had tearing in his right eye and it was red and swollen.

So, it’s off to the vet’s for the second time today – this time, to our regular vet.

Ginger was examined thoroughly. His third eyelid is nipped. So, Bushy White got […]

Pole has UTI again (an “emergency”)

Pole had UTI on 31st July 2019.

This morning, she was active as usual, but did not want to eat at all. For Pole, that means something is not right.

Then, I noticed her squatting many times. There was no urine.

That’s classic UTI.

It was 6am and the vets are still closed, but I […]

Cleo Patra’s demands

Cleo refuses to have her subcut “together” at the same time with Bunny and Pole’s. She wants hers on a separate day.

Oh well….

When she “knows” it’s time for subcut, she goes and hides and it’s impossible to catch her. She would either go up onto the ledge (no, I am not climbing up […]

Indy’s bone broth

I have shared this many times, but would like to do it again, in case anyone missed it.
