Yes he can have 4 of the L Lysine as long as it does not upset his stomach. GIve him 1/2 at a time if needed.
Sorry for the delay. I signed off and back on to rest my connection.
Dyson has their own but it looks pricey LINK
Here is one that has a few attachments LINK
I think the link that I sent you on the other question with the furminator one has its own vacuum system rather then one that attaches to your vacuum
How about this one and it looks like it is on clearance. LINK
I am not familiar with your vacuum. Dyson has several styles of pet grooming attachments, what I would do is call dyson directly and see if they have an attachment that will work or even some type of hose attachment that you could then put a grooming head on.
As long as your house is at a comfortable temperature then it will be fine sitting out for a few hours. My cats get canned food in the morning and they nibble on it through out the day so it sits for long periods of time.
Food is not the only cause for kidney stones and it would take months of feeding only this for us to worry about stones forming. I honestly would not worry about that right now, from what you have said he is a finicky eater so I am sure he will get tired of it soon.
I do not see any attachments that would work with your vacuum because it has the wand and not a hose.
I would say you can give the lactulose for another 2-3 days if needed.
I have this small hand held vacuum and I think it has good suction and it is not to loud LINK
We give as much as 3 mls a day so I am sure a cap full is fine though I don't know how much that would measure out to. I would just give it once a day.
Fill the cap with water and then see if you can measure that with a measuring spoon. 1/2 a teaspoon a day should be enough.
yes the small cap equals to a half of a teaspoon. The bottle says half a teaspoon every 12 hours.
He can have it twice a day if he is not going but we do not want to cause diarrhea.
I am in my office where he is sleeping and i heard him sneeze a few times I am going to give him more 2mg allergy medicine. He really hasn't that since last night I think. I only see one bowel movement since last night sometime. Should I give him another dose tonight?
Yes you can give him another dose tonight.
Sorry I have no idea why I am not getting notified of responses tonight. There must be something going on with the site and I have reported it. This could very possibly be old flea dirt if he has not had a bath so unless he becomes itchy or starts over grooming again then I would not worry
I am here. I was waiting to see if you would get back to me before I logged off for the night. Thank you for telling me that it is saying I am offline when I am actually on. I thought I fixed that problem either today but I will have to ask them to check it again.
How is he doing tonight.
I have been trying to reply back to you for 10 minutes. I had to log in and out again. I am happy to hear he ate that well. I am not to worried about him not drinking. There is plenty of water in the can food especially if you added some.
I am going to log off and see if I can get them to check my account. Please touch base with me tomorrow. I will be on by 12pm.
OK. You have a good night, give him a pet from me and I will talk to you tomorrow after church.
UPDATE: Topcat has only has one bowel movement since we started talking in the last couple two or three days. This morning I gave him mariners friskies canned food with 1 capstar in it and he must know the pill is in it because he won't eat it. He is acting like his normal self and begging for food though. He ate one of his LLysine. But not the fish food maybe I should put more of the fish food in it so he won't know. I will try that. But what can I do about his bowels moving use more vaseline?
Hello. You can use more vaseline, add a little mineral oil or olive oil to the food and continue with the lactulose. As long as he is still eating and not vomiting then I am not to worried at this point. Give him what ever he wants to eat as far as the canned food goes and yes you may need to add more food or try a different one.
He is not vomiting at all. I will go to church and see if he has eaten his food within the 3 hours time. I will give him a few temptation treats before I leave and see what happens. I will check in later.
Ok you have a good time at church and hopefully he will eat some more while you are gone.
can I mix the capstar and food with the lactulose? Need an answer fast as I am leaving in a few mins
Hello. Yay I am happy to hear that he finally had a good BM. I also happy to hear that he is eating and drinking.
I have decided to take some time off and spend some time with my family at a BBQ and parade so it may take me a bit to get back to you. I just wanted you to know so you did not think it was a problem with the site today.I will check in through out the evening and get back to you as soon as I can
If you can not get him to eat the food with the lactulose in it tonight I would not worry since he did pass stool today.
Give him a good pet from me when he wakes up and I will continue to check in in case you need me.
Hello. Sorry I did not get back to you last night, we made a last minute decision to go out to our campsite so I had no internet
At least you flea you found was dead, that tells us what we are doing s working.
I just wanted to let you know I was online and here if you need me
Watch out for bites on yourself. I know me personally sometimes I get the itchies for no real reason. I found a tick on me last night and I still have the feeling like ticks are everywhere LOL.
Make sure you offer some food daily that doesn't have any medication in it. We just don't want to risk him not eating because he can smell the medication.
ok I will do that. He is looking around for plastic to eat I think he wants to eat it to try and throw up hair balls.
Oh No no plastic silly boy. One thing that you could get for him that may help is cat grass. Yes grass often causes them to vomit which is why we think they eat it when they are nauseous. The cat grass may be a deterrent from the plastic.
he won't eat cat grass I already tried and tried real grass too he won't eat it.
How much mineral oil should I put in his food and how often?
What is injection-IM/SQ?
1/4 of a teaspoon once a day.
An injection is a shot. If you are reading that on your vet receipt or his medical record it means that a shot of some sort was given either Intramuscular ( IM = In the muscle) or Subcutaneously ( SQ= just under the skin)
UPDATE: it's Tuesday morning 7:40am and he still has not had another bowel movement. Only that one I told you about a few days ago. Yesterday he did have some temptation treats as he wouldn't eat any of the can food I gave him at least not very much of it. I just gave him some food with the lactulose in it and he ate some of it and he ate 1 LLysine. He is urinating well thank goodness. And drinking water too. He is acting normal too. He has almost stopped sneezing completely. I only hear him sneeze once in a while. I was looking over his May 26 visit to the vet and that is why I asked about that injection. Because it showed that injection plus a convenient shot. So I didn't know what it was or for. I also noticed his weight then was 12.9 pounds and his weight last week was 13.2 pounds. I was thinking I sure hope the extra weight is not hair in his stomach. UPDATE: Its 1:15 pm Tuesday July 5 and he finally had a small bowel movement. Kind of soft but very formed.
Hello. Sorry for the delay I got called in to the clinic last night and just got home a few hours ago. I am happy to hear he has passed stool. It would take a lot of hair to add up to that weight gain so I am not worried about that. The fact that he is not loosing weight is great, always better up then down at this age.
