Urko: Surviving sporotrichosis

One of our readers wrote to us about two months back enquiring about a sporo-cat, Urko. We encouraged her to get Urko treated and here are some updates and photos. We are really glad to know that Urko is showing good signs of improvement and recovery now.

The first email on 17th May 2017:

Tiger and Daffodil to the vet’s

I was worried about Tiger’s fits recurring, so I texted Tiger’s sporo vet to discuss. He said to check Tiger for diabetes and he introduced me to another vet who has the facilities to check for this by using the glucometer instead of the more invasive blood test.

So I called this vet and was […]

Tiger’s hyperesthesia

Tiger’s hyperesthesia came back a few months ago. He was free from seizures for a few weeks after the August 2016 to October 2016 episodes.

It was Prochloroperazine that seemed to work last time. This is a very mild motion sickness medicine for humans. But now, it doesn’t work anymore.

We’ve also tried acupuncture, but […]

Frankincense oil – is it safe on cats?

If anyone knows, could you please share?

Yoke Mei shared the following (below) with me. It’s from a dog facebook page.

Update: I don’t know if it’s safe for cats, so I searched the internet and found this: https://www.facebook.com/notes/essential-oil-vet-janet-roark-dvm/cats-how-to-safely-use-essential-oils-with-cats/1793394460886052/ where it says:

Daffi’s big “gophery” escape

Last night, there was a function next door, so there were tents and lots of people.

Daffodil seemed very unsettled with all the strange noise. She darted to and fro, as though looking for somewhere to go.

At 11.30pm, when I went up to sleep, she was still around.

In the middle of the night, […]

Daffodil’s routine

Daffodil has been playing hide-and-seek a lot these days.

She doesn’t want to be caught for her pilling and cleaning sessions, so she runs. But she IS hungry – aha!

Daffodil’s daily sessions

It’s been 18 days since I started Daffodil on Bioresis and the daily molasses+sodium bicarb paste.

Bioresis, I’m told by two pharmacists, is one of the purest extract of Beta Glucan 1-3, 1-6 on the Malaysian market: http://www.bioresis.com/

On Day 12, I felt that the lump started shrinking and every day since then, it seems […]
