Hello, my year old female cat Jingles has had a snoring sound for a while now my vet told me that she most likely has a polyp as he just informed me 4 days ago he gave me an antibiotic (which they gave me before) and told me that she could have surgery to remove it at a vet 30 min away in State College and it would be around $1500.00-2,000.00.
I had taken her to the vet when this first stated about 6 months ago they gave me 2 different antibiotic the second one which I guess was stronger seemed to help for a short time and now she is breathing bad again.
My poor girl seems miserable and I am frustrated with that thought I can’t help her unless I come up with that kind of money 🙁 I would love to bring her to you and help her breath right again she is my world and I want to help her so much. I am willing to travel
My vet is Sylvan Animal Hospital, I did not take her to the place in State College where I was told the surgery would be. The vet did tell he did not usually do this but could sedate her and see if he could remove it ???
I did not feel confident with that, and after watching you on You Tube I would love your help with my baby girl. Plus I could afford it. Or if you could recommend someone close to me that might be able to help that would not charge me a arm and a leg. thank you so much!
My 10 year old cat had surgery to get a lump removed on her back and now she has two fluid pockets on her side that are infected. I took her back in and they sampled it and sent me home with more pain meds and antibiotics. It’s day 6 and she is still in pain, not herself and can tell she’s super uncomfortable. What should I do?
(Picture was day of surgery, before fluid came)
Hi this question is for Krista, referring to her video called “Teaching a calm cat to become a lap cat cuddle-bug.” I have a Flamepoint Siamese as of 2 weeks ago, he is 13 weeks old, and he is very snuggly, only when he is asleep. I took your advice last night around midnight and tried to going out of my way and force him to cuddle. He did not like it one bit, but after about 10 minutes of struggle (squirming, scruffing and play-biting – not biting hard) I got him to trust me and stop being in fear. I did the slow blink and got him to slow blink back. I gave him two treats after this. It was hard to get to this point, but I got him to sit still and be ok.
Today on the other hand, gave it a shot again after I got home from work. It didn’t happen. He cried and meowed and squirmed and bit (play biting again, no blood or anything) and after about 15 minutes I just stopped.
Any advice on how to proceed? I want to show him he can be held in safety and cuddled without fear so bad, I really want a cuddle bug cat but it seems like it’s going to be so hard. You mentioned maybe starting slower with a cat that spits/hisses/becomes dangerous. My guy has play-bitten, but no spitting/hissing. Thoughts?
By the way, don’t let him fool you. The pictures of him snuggling ONLY happens when he’s super super super sleepy.
My cat which I barely got about 2 weeks ago has worms I found out when he was going to the bathroom and I checked and he had a white gooey worm attached to him and I was wondering how much it would be for you guys to treat him?It was a tapeworm
My cat has squamous cell carcinoma under and behind her tongue. She’s on a feeding tube, and can’t use her tongue for lapping milk or grooming. I’ve been to the cancer vet, and I know she only has 4-6 months. (I’m trying to accept it, but it’s so hard). She sometimes ‘works’ her mouth, opening & closing it, moving her tongue as best she can – I think she knows things don’t feel right and she’s trying to rearrange them. Would it make her more comfortable to have some of the tumor & part of her tongue removed? Or would that just make distress her? Would it just re-grow anyway?
I have a 2 and a half year old gray female cat named Elvis. About a week ago she started limping. I took her to the vet and they said her hips aren’t in the perfect position, they are not dislocated just not in a perfect position. She is still walking but limits it. She no longer runs around and plays. She is still eating, drinking and using the bathroom fine. The vet said it would cost 1,000+ to do more test to get a actual diagnosis if it doesn’t get better in a couple weeks. There are no wounds or cuts on her paws. I’m just wondering what could possibly cause this. I feel so horrible, just want my baby to be ok again.
My cat has been vomiting consistently (every day or every other) for 10-14 days. At first it was just food, but now it’s just bile. She seems a bit more lethargic than usual, has paler gums, and is drinking more water than usual. I don’t know if I should take her to the ER or wait till tomorrow…Help?

The ever-barking dog next door. The escape artist cat. Here, how to handle those tricky critter situations
5.5 kgs(12 pounds) neutered male 8 years old tabby cat.(was neutered at 7 months old)
He was diagnosesd with urinary tract infection 1 month ago, he used Prunol, and was fine after medication. 3 days later he had his first epileptic seizure.
1 month passed, now he has an epileptic seizure every 8 hours. We have the footage of the seizure and can send it if requested.
Symptoms also include:
– a lot of foamy saliva comes out of his mouth
– uncontrolled muscle movements and release of the bladder which leads to him running into a wall, turning and twisting, having trouble breathing.
– the seizure takes around 30 secounds.
– after the seizure he has a 5 to 10 minute calming period and then he starts eating and drinking a lot.
Veterinarian suggested Tegretol (includes Carbamazepine), and said we should give him 0.1 mililiters orally and also said even 1 dose can be lethal. What do you suggest?
I have an 8 year old indoor female cat which has what appears to be an abscess between her shoulders, but I’m not real sure about it. I have been treating it with antibiotic ointment for about 3 days now. Anyone out there have a similar situation with their cat?
