How does she get up there?

 She likes to tightrope on the door top. She used to do it on curtain rods too, but she's too heavy for that now. I have plenty of curtain rod pictures but it would take ages to find them.:D

Jennie is not isolated.

She's had this for months, while I messed around with food intolerance trials. The other two show no symptoms but I have increased Mazy cat's s.boulardii and put Queen Eva on a small dose, just to help them fight any bacteria they may have picked up.

I have spoken to the vet.  The next step is to retest the poop.  Vet feels it will show negative, and she just needs time for the irritation to heal. I am to continue cooking her food.  I wish Jennie could have slippery elm bark I am sure it would help her, except for her, it makes things worse. I don't know what else I could give her to sooth her intestinal tract.

If the poop is negative,  and there is no improvement as time goes on, we go to the next level of diagnostics, vet says ultrasound.

If the test is still positive, we put her on the Tylosin.

In The News / Re: FDA recalls thyroid medication
« Last post by Middle Child on August 16, 2018, 03:33:49 PM »
Fox should check it's facts better.  Levothyroxine comes in mcg (micrograms) not mg (milligrams)

Thanks for the info though. Thankfully my medication is not on that list. I take Synthroid (name brand) and it is not made from porcine thyroid.

Edit...I see the info comes straight from the FDA website.  So FDA has it wrong, or this combined medication comes in different measurements than plain thyroid meds.

https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm616601.htm

 They also do not make it clear that this is ONE MED, with two medicines in it combined.

Editor’s note: A previous version of this story indicated two thyroid medications have been recalled. Only one medication has been recalled, but it contains both Levothyroxine and Liothyronine (Thyroid Tablets, USP).

Incompetency at it's best.

The Food and Drug Administration has issued a voluntary recall for a thyroid medication made by a Chinese manufacturer because of potential problems with an ingredient.

In the Aug. 9 statement, the FDA said Levothyroxine and Liothyronine 15 mg, 30 mg, 60 mg, 90 mg, and 120 mg thyroid tablets are being recalled as a precaution.

Did your vet mention how soon you should see an improvement?  Is she isolated from the other cats now?

Have a very happy birthday, Arrow! Let your humans spoil you to the gills!

Why did you name the precious ginger Arrow?

I didn't care for the name he was given by someone else, but I didn't want to confuse him by changing it completely.  So, I picked a named that rhymed.  Figured I could trick him that way.  Silly7
