A lesson in self-isolation (by Ginger)

Dear Friends,

Most of us would definitely remember this drug as it was developed by two Malaysian scientists about 9 years ago. We used it for our dogs and cats too, and I just used it last year for Zurik as well.

Ginger to the vet’s again

Ginger recovered, then started coughing again. I quickly got him the anti-histamines and broncodilator, and the cough stopped, but he started sneezing again yesterday so it’s off to the vet’s again today.

The vet explained that being FIV+, it appears to be harder for Ginger to overcome the flu virus. Also, the flu virus does […]
