GENERAL CAT CARE / Re: Jennie has been diagnosed with carcinoma (cancer)
« Last post by ThreeStep on December 07, 2018, 05:02:21 PM »
Pookie - of course Nosy was fine. Just a bit chilled. She also managed to get into a fold out couch, screamed her little lungs out. I could not get the contraption open and was scared that I might kill her slowly if she gets caught in the springs. There I was with a loaded shotgun in the middle of a rented apartment ready to take the pain away from her when she strolled out. She did live up to her name.

It's great news that you can get Jennie's bupe much cheaper. I know that you would give everything you have to keep her more comfortable but why pay more than you need to.

Having the CBD oil will hopefully give you some peace of mind that it's there should you wish to use it.

Well said!

LOL, true.  My fear was that if I was distracted or tired that I might forget.  And I'm limited on where I can put those plants.  Though bitter apple spray helped!

Supplements / Looking for advice on a milk thistle supplement
« Last post by Pookie on December 07, 2018, 03:37:59 PM »
My mother's newly adopted senior dog has high liver enzymes.  I'm thinking of ordering a milk thistle supplement (milk thistle is protective of the liver and helps the liver heal and regenerate) for Mom to give the dog, and am trying to decide between the following:

https://www.amazon.com/d/Pet-Supplies/Certified-Organic-Milk-Thistle-Powder/B079FJ1LHL/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1544218412&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=herbsmith+milk+thistle+for+dogs&psc=1

or this one:

Does anything, positive or negative, stand out to anyone for either of these?

Thanks!   :-* :-* :-*

Poor kittie ShadowCat! She is at the vet? I hope all the tests come back good. Have you started any supplements for arthritis?  I would recommend the SuperSnouts green lipped mussel which has been a miracle for my Mazy cat.  Or another brand if you prefer.  Have you read her thread?

So far severe arthritis in the hips. The silly fur ball came to sit with me last night, then came into be and did so again after breakfast. Our bedroom looks like an obstacle course with stairs and more stairs.

Blood work, ex-rays, diagnostics for the raspy breathing she developed last week. SO is with her. I can barely hobble to you know where.

She turned into a snuggler lately but was always the one with medical issues.

You make a good point about safety and counter surfers Pookie.

Yes I picked up the CBD oil yesterday.  I am not sure I will use it for Jennie just yet, if at all.  I'm still just as afraid as I was before, and now that she's got the bupe and Cerenia for pain and nausea control I think I may just keep things the way they are.

Or, since the advice is to start with one drop a day and work up, I supposed I could just start with that one drop a day for now. I do intend to try it myself this weekend, though I could never sustain the dose recommended.  If it can be used as needed (example-for insomnia) it might be helpful to me so I'll find out.

By the way CW refunded me the 2 day shipping fee I paid when I contacted them in a panic about the post office being closed.

Also, a tech at work contacted me about getting the bupe in a larger quantity from a compounding pharmacy. I can get 3 months worth (at twice a day) for $75 (plus shipping) Right now I am paying $10 per dose, so this will be a huge savings for me, especially as Jennie will eventually need it more often. Currently I am only giving it to her once every other day, on the night she doesn't get the piroxicam.

Which reminds me I need to make her next blood work appointment.
