Re: cat news


I think Noreen is describing something more serious (under the chin/neck that rupture - blood everywhere) than you are, Betsy. My cats have had experiences with the kitty acne you describe and my vet said the same thing. I use only porcelain or stoneware for their food, no plastic.

Hi Noreen.
A friend of mine had a cat with that chin thing. His vet told him to
get rid of the plastic food and water bowls. I guess it was an
allergic/dermatitis reaction.

Thanks, Betsy, for your input.  Pinkerton is set for surgery on  Friday.
She
is on antibiotics again now.  Dr. said they would not  know what type (?)
of
stone it is till then.  One type can be controlled by  diet regulation,
the
other comes back......didn't say what to do about that  one.   I assume
calcifications and stones are the same? Xrays show a couple spots on the
kidneys.
Not sure why the urgency for surgery  then, if there is a chance they
could
shrink on their own?  We didn' t put  her on any special diet after the
kidney
infection the first time.   Hmmm......never had anything like this from
younger
cats.  My first group  (Flaksey etc.) never had any ailments at all,
nothing,
until they were quite old  (over 10)....this is a bit alarming from a cat
so
young.

Other problems I'm seeing with this group this time is cysts on the skin
under the chin/neck that rupture.  First time I saw this, I almost
died....there
was blood everywhere.  Vet didn't seemed alarmed, said it was  comon
benign
cysts.   Never had that with the last group  either....this time it's
happened
twice already.  This whole group is under  5 years of age.

My cat,  Cody, was passing both types of crystals and had blood in his
urine
about 18 months ago. After two sets of antibiotics, the crystals cleared, but the blood was still in the urine. The doc did an x-ray and one of his
kidneys  is smaller than the other and had calcifications on it.
She put him on dry  C/D for 6 months and then rechecked and those
califications pretty much  disappeared. After another 6 months, we
rechecked
and HE still had blood in  his urine and his pH was high again. So Cody
got a
dose of antibotics to kill a potential infection. Then, pH was again high
so
we have added C/D  canned food to his regime. His pH is now normal and he
is
still one happy  cat
