Nope that's doctor fletcher.

I'll say this though, that lady earned my business for the time I'm in hot springs. not that I have any money, but to be that kind and play it off like she didn't do anything....wow.

reminds me of the nice people here.

You definitely need to get that kitty on at least 2 weeks of antibiotics. He can become resistant to the antibiotics if he doesn't take the full course. I can send you $50 if that will help any. Let me know.

I second everything everyone here has said about needing the Clavamox. Yes, it's good that you started it. Under the circumstances, I would give this vet your business. I was thinking --get a prescription from her and buy online... but given how you said she handled it, hey, let her have her markup on the pills. I"m surprised she didn't tell you that about the full course being critically important for anti-bios.

LovesMyCats offered you cash. Take it. I will kick in a little bit, too. Take $$$ from anyone who is willing to give it to you for your babies.

Here's how I see it. As an adult, you make decisions for yourself and live with the outcomes, good or bad. but the kitties are your dependents and "depend" on you to make the best decisions FOR their well-being. It is in Wilbur's VERY best interests to take a full course of ABs for his infection.

It's best that the line of dosing be unbroken... no skipped doses. So the first dose that would be 'missed' is Saturday morning. So you need the remainder of pills in hand by then for optimal results!

The only issue I see here is if Wilbur has a reaction to the drugs, which could happen ... and he will likely get the poops. A little canned pumpkin in his wet food will help with that -- about a level tablespoon. You can get canned, cooked UNSEASONED pumpkin at Walmart's grocery or any grocery store. (NOT pumpkin pie mix).

lol Woohoo! We could have a romance brewing. But seriously, take my money. Its not much, but you have to take care of your baby. Like AddieBee said, the cats are your dependents and you have to take care of them. There are people here who are willing to help and you should take it. We all go through rough times so I hope you will let us help you so you can help your kitties.

How is Wilbur doing? Did you get Tinker spayed, for real this time?

My vet recommends Vaseline, too She also tells me to use Neosporin as a topical antibiotic - most other human first aid creams are toxic to cats.
I know that many urban vets probably would be shocked, but these country vets work with a clientele whose funding options tend to be very limited, and the availability of products and services are very limited

i was wrong on the dates with Tinker's spay but it's tomorrow. She's been in heat for a few days too and she is misereable. She's also making Wilbur and me miserable as I'm sure you could understand. locked in a single bedroom with a cat in heat She'll be ok though.

Wilbur is doing GREAT. We got his meds and he's such a good cat the way he lets me give the pills to him. He's got about a week to go on the antibiotics but he's happy again.
