Update on Fifi 21/2/14

Fi fi is doing ok ish, still badly drooling when she is lapping her prescription diet food and I have to wash her face and head twice a day as it sets like concrete, but the diet is working she went y/day for weighing and I am very pleased to say she now weighs 2.07kg, I cant wait for next week to see how much she has put on.  We have got her an inflatable buster collar to stop her grooming as she is making her back legs and rear end quite sore, she has an antibacterial cream that I put on twice daily that seems to be working. Further weigh in and update next week after Thursday.

Update on Fifi 14/2/14

Fi Fi has been sedated today to examine her thoroughly and brilliant news her tongue is not rotting away, it appears she had a big amount of fur at the back of her mouth that she could not swollow or bring back up, she has had the rest of her hard fur shaved off and had a lovely warm bath and looks and feels and smells a lot better, so it’s onwards and upwards with her prescription diet and hopefully will put more weight on, god bless ya Fifi xxxx

A huge thank you to our vet Anna who has given Fifi so much time and attention, what a wonderful person she is, Fifi enjoyed her nice warm bath afterwards and smells and feels so much better bless her, watch this space as she will go for another weigh next Thursday, keeping absolutely everything crossed 🙂 

Update on Fifi 13/2/14

Fifi has put on a little weight, last week she was 1.84kg this week after being on a prescription high fat diet she weighs 1.96kg so we decided to shave her rock hard fur off but our vet noticed she has a funny smell about her (which she has always had) so looked in her mouth and part of her tongue is rotting away, the vet thinks the part that is rotting will eventually fall off hopefully leaving enough for her to eat and lap, so she has been left at the vets today and tomorrow will be sedated and a thorough examination and if viable then we will continue to shave her fur and continue with her high fat diet, will update more as and when things happen

Update on Fifi, she went back to the vets last Thursday and lost more weight which I thought strange because she had been eating (mushy food) quite well although still badly drooling, she now weighs 1.84kg which is less than a kitten before neutering! We are having a last ditch attempt for her to put weight on so we have her on Royal Canin Convalescence Support and Complivit which are high in fat and liquid so easy for her to swallow, I will be taking her back next Thursday for weighing and a re examine. Her fur is still very stiff so Anna one of our vets treated Fifi to a special foam bath which softens and moisturizes the skin, it does help a bit and am doing it twice daily in between her 4/5 meals a day which she has little and often. Lets pray she puts some weight on, next update Thursday 13th Feb lets hope its a lucky No for her   

Fifi latest on going case

alt

This is Fifi who we homed 5 half months ago, a gorgeous girl of 11yrs weighing a good 5.3kg when we homed her.

alt

Sadly this is Fifi now, she came into the vets where I work a week ago with chemical burns but we think it was creosote/wood treatment that the owner said was done 2 mths ago, she now weighs just 1.9kg and is a bag of bones, where she has tried to clean herself up she has ingested the substance and is unable to put her tongue in her mouth and is drooling all the time, her mouth was red raw and we bathed her and a lot of her fur just fell off leaving very red skin underneath, she has been on liquid food to help build her up and she has come in with me at the shelter today 21/1/14 we still do not know if she will make it, she has been on antibiotics, steriods and eye cream as when she came in she had puss coming out of one eye, needless to say we took the cat off of the owner due to her condition and dramatic weight loss which to lose that amount in such a short space of time is cruelty in it’s self. We are hoping with a bit of one to one and lots of TLC she will start to put weight back on.

Fifi in her heated igloo at the shelter, we are tempting her with the best food and pray she will survive, if you would like to help with her vet fee’s we would be very grateful, please use the donate button. Watch this space, bless her she must of been in this state for sometime 🙁

27/11/13 Update on Pumkin

27/11/13 Update on Pumkin.

Pumkin has been for her second scan, her gall bladder has significantly reduced in size, she is well in herself and her bloods were fine, looks like she is over the worst, there are no guarantees it will not re occur in the future but she may have no further problems either, we have had interest in someone wanting to adopt her so watch this space, she is such a loving special girl <3 

Pumkin update 15/11/13

alt

Pumkin our latest on going case went for a scan and x-rays y/day, she has a very large gall bladder and they think she has a blocked bile duct, she starts medication today and has to go back for a further scan a week on Monday (25th Nov) to see if the size of her gall bladder has reduced. She is a very very tolerant girl and was as good as gold, while at our vets she had a bath and her nails clipped and looks so much better. Her veterinary treatment is costly, if anyone would like to donate via our paypal button towards this cost we would be very grateful

Pumkin in on 5/11/13

alt

Meet Pumkin as we have called her, she has come in as a stray/abandoned and by looking at her she has been living rough for some time, she really is a sweet natured girl and loves attention, fuss and her heated igloo bed as well as her food.

alt

Our vet Olivia Halligan assisted by our vet nurse Louise Garmston gives Pumkin the once over, age wise she is in double figures and has not got many teeth left but they have been removed by a vet, she has a very strange abdomen that feels like dough, we have had two urine sample’s done and the 2nd has shown blood in it, she will go for an ultra sound scan on Wednesday 13th November……..lets hope it’s not anything sinister………watch this space
