That is great news about the vet tech!  How did Misa do at the vet and nail trim?

Keep us posted on her nose.  Her eye may be a blocked tear duct.

GENERAL DOG CARE / Misa - "Crying Eye" Plus Other Stuff
« Last post by Lola on September 19, 2018, 06:49:37 PM »
Misa has always had one eye that "cries."  Clear liquid.  Happens hit and miss.  Doesn't seem to bother her at all.  It drives me nuts, because it does mean something is going on with her. 
Had her tested today for food allergies.  She has a slight allergy to chicken.  Slight?  We are going to cut chicken out of her diet for a while.  Wait and see!

I actually took her to the vet because when I got home from my short trip, she had a red raw looking spot on her nose.  It looked like maybe she split her nose open.  The pink spot darkened the next day, but the spot spread out more.  Today there is a scab off to one side.  The general area looks to be a litttttle swollen.   She licks it from time to time, but wasn't obsessing licking. 

The vet (my least favorite) said it wasn't a bite or sting.  Didn't look like a cat got her.  No oozing.  His best guess... she caught it on something.  Ouch!  He gave me 4 prednisone pills for her and an antibiotic... as a safety measure.  The scabbing tells me it is healing, soooooo I'm not sure if I am going to follow through with the meds.  Just got home a bit ago, and haven't given it complete thought.   

She also got her nails trimmed today.  Had a vet tech that has TWO Street Dogs.  She understood talking to Misa only makes her more miserable.  I NEVER heard of street dogs, until Misa.  No one I talk to has either.  What are the odds that a tech and a vet (one we saw last time) BOTH have or at least know of them?  Anyway, I requested the same vet tech for Misa's next nail trimming in 4 weeks.  :)

Good for Southern AZ.  Hopefully Humane Societies, in other areas of Arizona, will share the same view soon!

Declawing / Humane Society of Southern Arizona

In part:



Quote
Both the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, and the Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter and Sanctuary, are quite clear at time of adoption that an adopted kitten or cat must not be declawed, and the adopter has agreed to that condition of adoption.  Scratching is a natural cat behavior, and cats can be ‘taught’ to scratch where appropriate – cardboard scratchers, sisal scratchers, cat trees.  The adopter always has the option of returning the kitten or cat to the respective organization.  There is no way to determine how many of these declawed kittens and cats are relegated to the outdoors, but their odds of survival would be very slim.

 It is our hope that one day, very soon, the American Veterinary Medical Association will join forward-thinking, progressive organizations, countries, states and cities, in making the practice of elective and non-therapeutic declawing ethically unacceptable.

Until then, the Humane Society of Southern Arizona and The Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter and Sanctuary request that our position that no kitten or cat adopted from either organization be declawed, be respected and honored.

Raw Feeding / Re: Jennie developing an intolerance to beef?

I've put Jennie back on bone broth, if she will eat it. It's the pork broth I made for her. I'm not happy with her eating so much canned, though she loves it, her poops are clear the room smelly on it.  So I'm going back to just using a small amount to enhance the Alnutrin.  She won't eat chunks of meat at all any more so I do wonder if her teeth are starting to bother her a little.

I'm going to begin adding turkey breast back in and reducing the beef, gradually going off the beef for a bit to see if the irritation is less, with no beef.

Jennie is on fully balanced meals again, and I may decide to go ahead with the FMT (poop pills) since the specialist appointment is so far off. But one change at a time.
