Hi am new to the site. I look foward to meeting everyone. I just recently took in a feral kitten it is about 5 months old. The vet had him for a month and could not find a home. I found out about the kitty from a friend at work. I took the kitten. The vet did absolutely nothing for the cat. He had scabbies, ear mites and his leg is dislocated (I think he was hit by a car). He will need surgery to remove the ball of his femur. They cannot plact the hip back in place, it is dislocated for good. I am getting a second opinion. I dont like the vet that was treating him since she had him for a month and did nothing for him. However, the vet made me pay 28.00 for Tresaderm for the ear mite (because I noticed there were scabs on his head before I took him and looked at his ears and there was a ton of wax, she took a ssample and said it was ear mites). I was persistant with the tresaderm for ten days, twice a day. It has been a week since he has been off the Tresaderm. He still has scabs. Can I treat with Advantix or Revolution? I dont know why the vet did not treat with Revolution to begin with. Also, he seems to like me, I have been working really hard with him, he no longer runs and hisses when I come up to him. He lets me pet him now. However, he hates my boyfriend that live with me. He hisses and runs from my boyfriend. Any suggestions? He has been fixed, I got him fixed last week (by the same vet that took him in) and he has had two sets of kitten shots, he is getting his last shots on Monday, any suggestions?
