Hi Patience, thanks for your question. I think some of the original question may have been lost in transmission as all we see on this end is "Now that he seems to be tolerating food, how much goat milk can he have?" Was there more to your question?

Good morning Patience,

Thanks so much for requesting me

How is Simon today?

How much goat milk have you been giving up to now?

What food are you syriging? A/D?

Is he eating anything on his own?
Any diarrhea?

Thanks,

Terri

Right now he is holding down his food. I was just wondering if and how much goat milk can he have?
Cat Vet: Terri, Feline Healthcare Expert replied 2 years ago

That is GREAT news! I am SO HAPPY to hear it.

How much goats milk has he been getting up to now?

Ask Your Own Cat Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have been mixing in 3cc in with the other stuff all equal parts but I had a little maybe 2cc's left over and l put it under his nose and it seems that is the only thing he will lap up.
Cat Vet: Terri, Feline Healthcare Expert replied 2 years ago

OK, if he laps it up on his own,there is no limit. Let him have as much as he wants as long as he does not have diarrhea.

It is keeping him well hydrated plus providing potassium which strengthens his muscles.

If you are syringing A/D keep in mind its thick.....so dilute it to make gruel. Perhaps he will lap it up if its thinner.

You SAVED Simon''s life so bless you and keep up the awesome care of him!

If you need me I will be here for you.

He doesn't like the ad so it is mixed with equal parts chicken baby food, goat milk, and pedialite to make a loose gruel.
Cat Vet: Terri, Feline Healthcare Expert replied 2 years ago

That sounds great.......does he like it that way?

What food was he eating before he got sick?

Ask Your Own Cat Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
He's not crazy with any of it but won't eat on his own so we syringe. He was eating taste of the wild kitten crunchy food. I have given him a few morsels to try but he won't touch it or anything he has to chew
Cat Vet: Terri, Feline Healthcare Expert replied 2 years ago

Does taste of the wild make canned food?

Does he like tuna?

Ask Your Own Cat Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
He only drinks the juice from the tuna and I'm not sure about TOW in cans.
Cat Vet: Terri, Feline Healthcare Expert replied 2 years ago

Tuna water is good for him. It is hydrating and replaces his electrolytes.

What about trying some fish based canned food?

Ask Your Own Cat Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I'll do anything to keep him alive and he seems to be able to relax when he sleeps.
Cat Vet: Terri, Feline Healthcare Expert replied 2 years ago

Let's get a can of Little Friskies classic seafood or mariner's catch smooth pate canned food.

You can get it in the supermarket or Walmart.

Maybe he will like it better.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Will do👍🏻
Cat Vet: Terri, Feline Healthcare Expert replied 2 years ago

GREAT, let me know how he reacts to fish

The response from the Expert literally saved my cat's life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart -- I will recommend all of my friends to you!!!

LuciaRincon, Georgia

I will use your service again. I was very pleased with the response and the fact that you have a low cost option so that those of us on fixed income can have questions answered. I will also recommend you to others.

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
