Thank goodness, they do co-exist!

if her diarrhea doesn't improve, you might want to try adding a probiotic, like bene-bac, to offset the side effects of the antibiotic. i know it really helped Java - she had 2 rounds of antibiotic to fix her intestinal bacterial overgrowth, & the probiotic simply 'completed' her healing.
continued & for Chynna!
I bet she minds the injections less than pills, too. Over here the vets usually won't let you give injections unless you're a doctor, RN, or diabetic. Hubby's an RN, so my vets give me injectable medications (and showed me how to administer them, "just in case" he's not home). The cats don't show much of a reaction.
My old girl is sick
She threw up about 5 or 6 times last evening, the last looked like water she had drank shortly before. And she had 2 bouts of diarrhea in the litter box too.
I was hoping it was just the fact that I had given her her own portion of Fancy Feast and it didn't agree with her. But last night her ears, nose and rims of her eyes were pinker than normal, and she felt a bit warm. And she "looked" sick to look at her face. Plus while she slept on my pillow she wasn't cuddly like she normally is. In fact she only wanted to sleep on my pillow and not be "loved" on.
This morning I saw that she peed in the litter box, hasn't thrown up that I can see, but she's still "pink" and feeling warm and lethargic. She is usually begging for food and out of bed as soon as I move. But not today. She stayed on the pillow for about 10 minutes and hasn't bugged me for food yet. And she has gone off to the cupboard to sleep.
I called the vet but they don't have an opening, but has told me that I can go there and sit and wait to see if there is time to fit her in. I hope so
Please, can I have some strong TSC vibes for her? She's 15 years old (16 in May) and I know my time with her is limited, but I just hope I get longer than today to love on her!
