Hi

Send me your pharmacy information and I will pay for his prescription over the phone. I have a target card if that makes any difference...they should do it but ask first.

Send the information to:

  loveferals@yahoo.com  

Put IMOM in the title so I don't miss it. ..or just send me a pm

HI Ericka,

I got both your messages. I got home late last night. Some out of towners moved into the dinky apartment on the alley where some of my cats eat and immediately started trouble. Wait until they what kind of neighborhood they moved into...night falls and the drug deals, etc start...I hope they move out soon. Anyway, trying to get the kitties fed with a minimum of problems.

Got home and another crisis with a friend's cat.

I am happy you got it from Walmart for $4.00.. Here in Florida they put out $10 coupon for new prescriptions. Maybe there is more competition.

I will try to check with you later on

Kathy

I received this email from Erika and she asked me to post as she doesn't have a computer at home right now and is trying to use her phone which is giving her trouble also...

But, the good news is!!!!!  George pooped...IMOM angels, please continue praying that George can work this problem out himself so his Momma doesn't have to stress and worry...

Here's what Erika wrote...

"When i got back home from the library george let out several nice size poops! Then again after 9:30pm. i will Be keepin a close eye on him over the next few days an if he is still letting them out by thurs then he wont have to return to the vet. There were atleast three big marbal size ones sofar+normal size ones. I take it to be good news. This was the same result when he was ok befor after an emana:) i will again keep you updated on his progress! Can U please also post this to my imom page! I willnot have access to a computer tomarrow to post the good news on george:) thank you again!"

Lactulose is dose to effect so too much will give the opposite of what  you are trying to handle (as you found out)...Did you ever think you would get so excited about George's bathroom habits?   You know you're in love with your kitty when you get excited about poops

Erika,

If you have a family emergency like that again, and you can't take George with you, please post and let us know.  I would be willing to pay to board him at your vet's so he can get his meds, and I bet a couple other people would pitch in too.  George seems to be doing really well as long as he gets his meds, and we'd hate to see him have a setback again because you had to go away unexpectedly.  

Hugs to your boy!   :kittydrinking:

Erika,

I wanted to say ....

Sorry I am late. :blush:  I knew it was in the summer - I just got a tad confused with all this hot, humid weather we've been having !!!!! :P

So glad that Georgge is doing better.  Yep, you "know" how much you love your kitty when you get so excited over their 'poop habits'.

I have issues with my kitty - but the opposite now.  Giving him stuff so he won't have diarrhea with his meds, as he has become sensitive to nearly everything.  It's difficult I know.

Give the kitties cuddles for me; and I'm sending you :hugs: and love, not just for your Birthday, but EVERY day !!!!!!   God bless you all.

Sending ALL of ou LOVE,
Donna and 'The Bandit' :wub:

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.....
