After many attempts to resolve one of my foster kitten’s URI, I learned about nasopharyngeal polyps and low and behold that was the problem with Lindy. My vet’s team removed the bulk of the polyp behind Lindy’s soft palate with a CO2 laser rather than with traction using forceps, the doctor estimated she removed 90%. I see you have had much experience with these nasty growths. Lindy is a foster and I am getting ready to turn her over to the adoption center to find her forever home. I’m not exactly sure what to write about Lindy’s polyp and what might happen in the future. I hear they can recur. Do you have any advice to give me. Thanks so much.

I have a kitten. She was a stray so I’m assuming she is about 11 months old. She recently has stopped eating, drinking, and can hardly move. Within the past few hours we have noticed there’s a knot that’s came up on this inside of her on her side. Please help. She has an appointment in the morning with the vet but I’m worried sick!
Hi, my 3 year old French bulldog was just diagnosed with IVDD this past Saturday. All last week she was perfectly fine being her normal self and Saturday morning we found her dragging her back legs, unable to walk. We quickly rushed her to the vet and received the bad news. Surgery was the first recommendation but was far too expensive. We decided to try laser treatments and medication along with keeping her in the crate resting. Today she had her 3rd laser treatment. I’m devastated and just want her to get better. My question today is, if the treatments start working, when should we start seeing improvement? At what point should we try starting physical therapy? & what type of exercises do we do with her with her back legs paralyzed? How will we get her to take those first steps with her back legs if the treatments work? How will we know when and if it is working? She has been eating a little and urinating but it has just been coming out. She has not had a bowl movement since Saturday night and I am concerned about this. I watched your videos on YouTube of Hank, and it gave me a lot of hope for my frenchie. Please tell me what more I can do to help her get back on her feet. Thank you so much for your help at this time!
Over Labor Day weekend we had to hospitalize our 1year old cat for a bladder blockage. We didn’t have the funds for the procedure and we didn’t want our cat to die. He’s really my son’s cat who is 7 and would just be heartbroken.
He got his bladder flushed, came home 3 days later. We had to open a line of credit on carecredit that is now maxed out. Finished all his medications and seemed fine until today.
He isn’t peeing, seems lethargic. I tried manually expressing him but to no avail. Nothing but some drops of blood come out.
I’m crying as I’m writing this because we can’t afford another costly procedure and this is can obviously be fatal.
My dog seems to be constantly panting. We have our A/C on 70 degrees and ceiling fan on. Should I be concerned?
My cat Lucas is still sick with Horner’s syndrome. After many tests have not been able to determine a definitive cause. I would like to look into getting a myringotomy for him so I can know what the fluid in his middle ear is. It is causing him to have serious nasal issues every time he eats. Does anyone know if this procedure – myringotomy – is ever done by a regular vet, or does it require a specialist. And what have others paid. Any information would be helpful. See recent photo of Lucas – with his good eye. The other eye is affected by Horner’s syndrome.
What can I give my cat she cant pass a hairball! Help!
My 4 year old cat had a 3 year rabies shot and a distemper shot at about 11:30AM this morning. It is now 9:25 PM and she is having tremors in her leg muscles. It is NOT a seizure but I’ve never seen muscle tremors like this before. She is also lethargic and not eating too, which I know is fairly normal…I’m just worried about her muscle tremors. Does she need to be seen immediately or is it ok to wait until morning to call the vet?
My dogs nail broke in half what should I do
