Re: Re: < now Seamus

Thanks Melody,
My vet is the only one in the area testing for Bartonellosis and has
found 50% of those tested do have the bacteria. True to the statistic,
Seamus and Jack have it; Mick and Braveheart don't - thank goodness.
Mick scratched his eye the other day, though, and I was treating it with
an animal triple antibiotic opthalmic ointment, but called the vet
anyway. He said if it had certain ingredients it could make matters
worse. So I brought him in this am and everything is fine; he's already
on the mend. Unfortunately, I had to then bring him to work with me. My
vet is a few blocks away from my office, which is 1/2 hour from my
house. My boss doesn't like animals. But I'm only working a 1/2 day
today, so didn't think it would hurt too much. So Mick is hiding under
the desk, meowing periodically. I turned the office music up a bit to
keep it from annoying my boss too much.

> Kitty: I do hope your Seamus gets to feeling perkier soon...poor kitty
cat! Now are the other two positive for this disease or are you still
waiting on their test results? Sounds like this bartonellosis is quite
the serious thing...best of luck to you and your furry pals with it! And
yes, our pup is getting to be quite a good size...had her at the vet for
the current round of puppy vaccinations and she weighed in at 48.5
pounds at 16 weeks...started out at 19 pounds at 9 weeks so she has
doubled her weight in 7 weeks time. But this is what we wanted...a big
dog who is noticeable around the neighborhood for her size and she's got
quite a loud bark...she is quite attentive to the goings on around her
and already is good at letting us know when someone is coming around. A
few more months of growing and training and she'll be ready to take over
doing my worrying for me when I'm at home with just me and the
kids...And I need to teach her the difference between a garden spot s

he needs to stay out of and an acceptable place for her to be tramping
about in...any body got any suggestions for that one I'd appreciate
hearing about it! Thanks!

The vet says Seamus should be more active after treatment
for<br>bartonellosis, because he'll feel so much better. Hopefully,
he'll work<br>off some of the weight. It's much harder to restrict one
cat's diet when<br>you feed 5.<br>Melody, sounds like a sizeable puppy
there. I had a Malamute puppy years<br>ago. Weighed about 20 when we got
him. Weeks later wehn he should have<br>been 45#, he'd barely gained
any. Found out his body stopped making<br>enzymes. So we used ground up
lamb's pancreas to digest his food before he<br>ate it and he was
quickly back up to speed on weight. At 6mo. he was 90#. <br>And he
always liked to sleep on my pillow...which got kind of
difficult.<br><br>Kitty<br><br>> [Original Message]<br>> From: Pamela J.
