People, it's good news all round.
Target had a tiny sniffle of cat flue a few weeks ago and recovered in seconds thanks to being up to date on his inoculations.
Then Au got it and being FIV positive was a zombie cat. Having been given extra vitamins for a week, Au is now fine again. He has zombie eyes for ten minutes after he wakens up, and then they clear. His appetite has been excellent, and I'm happy to say he's putting on weight.
In fact, Au is looking better all over. His fur is sleeker, and that horrible stegosaurus feel along his spine is lessening too.
I know he's better because he's stuffing his face all day, and not wakening me up at 1AM and 4AM anymore. Yes, I am now allowed to sleep until 5AM undisturbed!
Guido was fine in principle during this time, but he had a dicky tummy. When we got him, we were warned he didn't do well on cat biscuits and that he had a sensitive tummy.
Trying this, that and the other thing, we eliminated various foods as the potential problem. Guido was fine but he had pudding-poop which worried me.
We finally tried him on RetroMAD1. If the pudding poop was caused by a background virus, that would sort it. Plus, it wouldn't do him any harm. And, other methods hadn't worked.
A drop of 1.4ml a day and after 3 days we had solid poop in the litter box. Guido now eats less which is a great sign as he must be absorbing all the nutrients from his food. The pics are of him eating chicken.
As I said, good news all round. Hope you all have a great day too!
