Dr. Magnifico,

Itsy was seen by you on 1/8/13 for red gums and ulcers in her month/tongue. I have changed all feeding/drinking dishes to stainless steel and ceramic as per your recommendation. Itsy finished her last tx of prednisolone on Tuesday. There is 50% left in the bottle of prednisolnone. First question – Can I keep the rest for future use and how should I store the the remaining medicine?

Second question – I ordered & received a 360 degree drinkwell pet fountain in plastic vs stainless steel prior to Itsy problem. Should I exchange it for the stainless steel model?

Third question – I would like to take my two 9 month old cats (that I adopted in October) to our cabin in Deep Creek next weekend. They will be in the car for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. My question is can cats travel in a carrier inside a car? I was also looking at buying a fold up cat playpen for the drive. I have never traveled with cats, dogs yes. Will you please advise me on what to do. Thank you for taking the time in anwering my questions.

Shirley Graumann

I also have a plasticc one, and when it dies I wil replace it with a ceramic one. But until then I am not going to buy one. Now, if you think that the… Read more »
