Tiger and Vincent’s challenges

Tiger has epilepsy and is FIV+. Vincent has stomatitis. Both are life-long challenges.

Recently, Vincent wasn’t feeling too well. He lost his confidence and would only eat one meal per day, ie. breakfast only. Luckily, he ate a lot and his breakfast was enough to last him a whole day. At other times, he seemed […]

Tiger’s bite wounds

Ever since the last trip to the vet’s, Tiger’s wound (with the “fistullas” (tunnels under the skin)) healed and during the 17-day period when he was put on Clavamox, he had no seizures at all.

After that, the seizures came back and it has been averaging at 1-2 fits per day.

He is still on […]

Daffodil’s new house

This is Daffodil’s new house. It’s a very small box in the kitchen.

She loves it and spends most of her time in it.

Daffodil’s tumour ruptured yesterday and there were blood stains all over the floor. But other that that, she’s okay. The tumour is shrinking and drying […]

Tiger’s abscesses Day 7

Today was Tiger’s check-up and the vet was very pleased with his healing.

No more flushing is required now. Only the oral antibiotics (one more week) and topical application of povidone iodine and the Polybamycin ointment. Hopefully, there will be no secondary abscesses.

The vet shaved a little bit more upwards just to check […]

Tiger’s abscesses Day 6 (the soft mass is also an abscess)

All the wounds are healing.

And finally, now we know that the soft masses on the side, which joined up and became one big soft mass, is also an abscess.

Either it ruptured or Tiger bit it.

I noticed some liquid oozing out of a tiny puncture hole this afternoon, so I dabbed […]

Tiger’s abscesses (Day 5)

I took a photo this morning and sent it to the vet. He was very pleased with Tiger’s progress so there was no need to take Tiger to the clinic today.

Now that the wounds are healing, Tiger must be feeling much better. He goes upstairs at night and sleeps at my […]

Tiger’s abscesses (Day 4) and Vincent’s monastic lifestyle

Yesterday morning, I was really happy when I saw that Tiger’s wounds had dried up. That was first thing in the morning.

But before I could take a photo, I guess Tiger bit his wounds and one of them started bleeding again. My guess is, perhaps when it is dried up, it itches, so we […]

Tiger’s abscesses Day 2

Thanks to a well-behaved Google Maps, we found out way to the vet’s and back home safely today!! For someone as severely directionally dyslexic as me, this is quite an achievement.

So, how are Tiger’s abscesses today?

Thankfully, according to the vet, it is showing signs of healing…quite well too.

I sent a photo to […]
