  1. After Vet recovery Hello Everyone! Has anyone's pet had kidney/bladder/UTI problems? We picked up our male cat from the Vet's clinic this morning where he had been since last Tuesday with "Blocked Tom" diagnosis which almost cost him his life. Luckily his strong immune system was able to handle the crisis and he avoided catherezation. While hospitalized he had to be on IV , valium, antibiotics and other bladder medications. One of the meds was suppose to help with bladder contractions but instead caused some weird side affects. The dose was reduced to a quarter. X-ray, blood work showed good results and no evidence of crystals. Our Sunshine was finally able to go home along with 2-bottle supply of antibiotics and Royal Canin S/O prescription food. They believe this food prevents the blockage from happening in the future. So, I am facing with a dilemma here where the cat is still weak and having difficulty going to the litter box (few drops at a time) and he refuses to touch fresh RAW food ("Instinct" from the frozen section that I've worked so hard to transition him to!). No, I am not about to go catch mice. I opened a can of wet food from the clinic and it doesn't even look like meat! There is pork by-product among ingredients. How sick. I am surprised they didn't stick bison in it. Well... it's been over 15 hours and the kitty hasn't touched it. He did nibble on premium dry food pieces but it is obviously not the best thing. This junk food is very addictive, has high % of fat which probably contributes to the blockage. Sunshine is about 16 pounds. Not overweight for a large frame cat... but can loose couple pounds. I am all about getting off drugs and "let the food be thy medicine". At the same time, I need to make changes accordingly with feline's constitution. Obviously, the lifestyle/diet he was on is what led to blockage and I understand that. Does anyone have an advice or similar experience with your animals on how to transition in this situation? Thank you in advance.
  2. euthanizing sick/old/suffering pets?? I would like to know others opinions and perspectives about euthanizing our sick/ suffering/old pets. I live in the Netherlands and here the forced, main stream opinion is that you commit a crime if you don’t euthanize your sick/suffering/old animal. And that you help them by 'ending their pain'. I was kind of pushed into doing it by my hysterical vets and it was the worst experience in my life. (and I have had many, many, many terrible experiences in this life) It just felt so wrong doing it even though everyone said it is ‘humane’. Since this awful experience I have nightmares about it every day and I would have not done it if I could go back in time. I feel so much remorse and regret, it was horrible really. I have a very different perspective on letting your own pet being euthanized now. And I really want to know other thoughts on this because it’s eating me alive. There was nothing humane about it and it felt as if I was holding and forcing my beloved pet who trusted me while it was fighting against the pain of the injections, and that those were the last memories alive.. the pain. I’m still sick of it. Everyone here says it’s so peaceful but that was not the case at all, it felt very unnatural and disruptive and wrong. Never ever will I just do that again, I’d rather let my pet die at home in it’s own time no matter how long that will take, and I will not see that as suffering anymore but just as dying and a natural process, and I will be there for them. Still I can’t take back what I’ve done and it’s killing me ☹ So please share your thoughts with me! Anyone who has had the same experience? Or a very different experience?
  3. Animal Abuse Registry and Animal Cruelty I submitted the following to Ask Teal. I'm struggling with this. Interested in your thoughts. Thanks everyone. - peace Hi Teal. I'm vegan. I try to live a cruelty-free lifestyle. I'm still learning - or rather, unlearning and relearning. What do you say about the National Animal Abuse Registry? Cognitive dissonance? What constitutes "animal abuse?" Does this include cattle farmers? Chicken coops? Deer and game hunters? What separates them from domestic animal abusers? What about the cruel treatment of animals used for food? Is that not animal abuse? Why is animal cruelty not treated the same as animal abuse? Why do we focus on shaming abusers of domestic animals used as pets? What about pigs or chickens used as pets? And those same "pets" slaughtered and used as food? The registry doesn't make sense to me. So much of our human practices don't make sense to me. Ugh. My heart. 😢
  4. Pets/ Sickness/loss/keeping them going I have a Chihuahua 12 years old, he's developed epilepsy has been in the hospital for three days there are 4 different types of meds to try and stabilize them, he's on the third one, he didn't have a seizure all night until this morning. I hate seeing him like this it's killing me! they said to do a CT scan or MRI to see if he has a tumor, I'll do anything to save him, but is this what he wants? or am I being selfish, I don't know what to do ? Please help me. Thank you
  5. In the summer of 2017, I decided to move in and stay with a friend for about 6 months. In the later part of summer, she had gotten two kittens that I had a huge hand in helping raise. She mostly works. I don't have a job; since I'm on disability, I stayed at her home (a trailer) and watched, fed, and played with her cats. I scooped the liter, vacuumed the carpet, cleaned the floors, did the dishes, and cleaned the bathroom. This "friend" of mine and I had a falling out recently and now I'm not allowed to even visit the cats again. To say that they mean a lot to me is an understatement. What I'm thinking will help me the most is to have some sort of comfort during this process. There isn't anything I can do about not being able to see these cats. This person has humiliated me and hurt me very deeply, many times. People are not a source of love or comfort in my life ─ animals are. Last night, I felt suicidal over this sense of loss. As I said, people aren't a source of love or comfort in my life, but animals are, and because I'm going through intense feelings of grief, the only thing I can think of doing is reaching out. If this needs to be said, I am definitely a cat-person. My mother has a dog that I'm absolutely not interested in. There are neighborhood cats that I have and do feed from time to time. It's not the same as having a cat cuddle with you and purr while sitting in your lap. There really is nothing that has ever made me feel that loved. I'm in a lot of pain. - On a positive note, I've attempted to make this transition easier for myself, on my own. There is a website where you can upload personal photos and put them on just about any item you can think of; my plans on are to put photos of these cats on sweatshirts and buy them for myself for Christmas. ♥ I have photos of the cats. Soon, I may make a "Goodbye" video of me in the cats in the cat room, right before I move out of the trailer. In the end, I'm not sure if all of this is going to make it hurt worse, or if its going to help me feel better because I won't have the nagging worry that I will forget about the parts of them that I love the most ─ that has upset me terribly. Thank you for reading.
  6. If you have a dog or a cat then you probably know that if your pets need medical care they are required to be vaccinated. Otherwise it's very hard to find a doctor who will provide care without pushing the vaccine. The bad part if you have missed annual rabies vaccine and your pet needs a doctor, you can't get the care before they do the vaccine. But at the same time it is common knowledge (and i was told this by the vet too) that this vaccine is never a guarantee and just like any other vaccine drastically suppresses the immune system, especially at the time when given. So, to force a vaccine when a pet is sick does not make sense to me! Could you please share how often you vaccinate your pets (if you vaccinate at all) and how do you handle situations when you've missed a vaccine and your pet is sick. Much Love ❤
