Is there any Antibiotic Coco will not throw up? - Page 2

post #31 of 45
I have used Baytril but with caution, my vet stays with the lowest dose to keep it safe and not for long periods but I have been told Baytril injections are a problem. Clavamox is one med I will not use and my Vet agrees as there are a lot of side effects with it. How about Zenaquin (sp?). I had a cat that could not tolerate any meds but she was able to take that, she was on it for twokatza whole month. Good luck.

They didnt mention it.
The Clavamox and Cefa Drops made her sick.
The Orbax she had once and was ok with it.

on the bottle it says 22.7 MG(500)
Do you know what that is?
She gets half a pill a day.
22.7 MG(500)? Not sure, I would think 500 tablets/bottle. (They have code numbers, tablet sizes and tablet counts - tablets/bottle, so that may be it.)

I'm curious, would you happen to know, do pill pockets count as food? I'm trying to find that out but not getting anywhere.

I treat them as I would "treats". On the pouch they are called "cat treats". There is also a statement that says if you have questions about them you can call a 1-800 number or go online to www.greenies.com. I very much doubt they would be considered as food, besides one wouldn't be giving them enough to consider them food anyway IMO.

I hope your baby feels better soon.
btw - i sent you a PM, but you didn't answer - why did Bijou need surgery? [i also looked for a thread about it, but didn't find one...]

The pill pocket is a Treat and she just gets one.

Sounds like a great solution then.

(The last time we had to try Baytril it was once again a total disaster, we had to stop after the first day, so I’m planning to ask my vet about the Taste Tabs and pill pockets.)

The Pills are Beef Flavored and she spit them out with out the pill pocket. the Pill Pockets are Chicken Flavored and she loves the taste. Last night I heard a loud noise. Coco was trying to get in the bag of pill pockets and she knocked both my Laptops on the floor. What did your Cat have Baytril for? I wish I had new about pill pockets before because I do no even have to chase her to give her the pill.

Oh you should see me laughing. Coco trying to get in the bag is just too funny. (I hope your laptops are okay.)

My cat had some blood in her urine (nothing we could see with the naked eye) and some bacteria. We would have never known if she hadn’t had her checkup and with that a routine urinalysis. There was no raging UTI, no symptoms at all. When we talked about where in the world this problem could be coming from my vet mentioned the possibility of upward migration of bacteria. Actually that would be the only explanation. There is no crisis, no emergency, but she wants to deal with it anyway. So we’re working on it.

How old is your Cat? The Laptops are ok. I am on my Mac now and it is working fine. I think the Sony is ok also. Your Vet is right it a Cat can get infected that way. Coco had Ecoli and a Staph infection 2 years ago. They saw Crystals in her Urine this time. We called the Vet today to let her know she hasnt thrown up so far this time. we have enough Baytril until Tues. They gave us a few pills to try.

Seventeen.

Glad the laptops are okay. And it's great that this med is finally working for Coco. After all you've been through, this is really wonderful.

Thanks,
Coco is 16.
Has your Cat had any other problems now that she is older.
Coco has some other problems.
The Vet just called and we will do the Antibiotics for 2 weeks more then do a Urine test again.
post #43 of 45
Yes, she has some other problems too. This is actually the most minor one, but my vet wants to treat it before it becomes more serious, serious enough to possibly affect kidney function.

I hope you get through those 2 weeks of treatment without any problems.

She didnt throw up last night so it looks like this will work out. The Vet said the same thing the infection has to be stopped so it wont go in her kidneys. Did your Cat lose weight when it got older?
post #45 of 45
Oh yes, she did.
