Do you have a K Mart, Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid or Costco near you? Costco has the cheapest meds around AND you don't have to be a member to use their pharmacy...you just tell them you are going to get a prescription.

Also, you can check online pet supply companies that provide prescription drugs...I don't know how that works but either you or they will get the prescription and then you're all set...

Also...check with Canadian Pharmacies...If George uses a human drug perhap they can help out...

You are such a good Mom to George...Merry Christmas to you and yours...so glad to see you back on the forum...Judy

I was reading about George and had to laugh about the poop thing! Yes, we pet parents talk about poop and pee and whatever else we need to! I'm glad he's doing better. One of my cats tends to be pretty constipated - and won't touch pumpkin - so I may need to check on Miralax.

For more poop discussion.... check today's Parvo Pups update.... :))

gotta love the poop. as a horse owner, poop is very important and I love to see lots of healthy piles, lol. so happy that George is doing good. just an fyi- if anyone has a harris teeter grocery store near them check with them if you need antibiotics for your pets. a lot of antibiotics are free for 2 weeks there. I was able to get the Keflex for Kashmir during my whole ordeal for 4 months and never paid a dime

I just got an IMOM message from Erika and George and the other kitty are having a terrible time with fleas...she has bombed her apartment many times and bathed the kitties also and they are still having problems...

Anyone have any ideas for her? I told her to get a small black fine tooth comb and start combing the kitties and that will help remove the flea dirt and the fleas and then drop them in rubbing alcohol to kill them...

are there any natural type remedies that anyone knows? Erika is a GREAT MOMMA to her kitties so she will be sure to follow any advice that anyone has for her.

I also told her NO HARTZ PRODUCTS AS THEY ARE SO DANGEROUS TO THE KITTIES.....
