How fast do feline resorptive lesions happen? My cat needed to be sedated to biopsy a nasal mass and my vet suggested doing a dental at the same time since it would only cost a little more. She found two severely decayed teeth and removed them and he's bounced back wonderfully. What's odd is that he had a normal exam in November with nothing unusual noted. It it possible everything looked normal then?

So I have an almost 14 year old cat with raging dermatitis and you should definitely commit now to a feeding schedule and feed them completely separately. If the itching still happens, you might need an immunosupressant as well. My cat takes atopica/cyclosporine daily and eats isolated from our other cats, but all it takes is 1 little bit of kibble overlooked after a meal to trigger a new episode of scratching a hole into herself.

Thanks for that - yeah we had another mild bad stomach day so switching back to soy again, I was kinda hoping for a magic bullet where both cats could eat it and we wouldn't have to worry about food stealing etc and we'd have no more itching or red poos. The steroids handle the itching in the main problem catte (and hopefully we can try ween her off if it is indeed a food allergy causing the itching) , and keeping the other away from the soy kibble should stop her itching as well.

A little creative surgery helps turn a few sick pets into a new and improved friend!

Most feline dental disease is hidden under the gums which is why dental radiographs are so important. Most will just tolerate the discomfort.

Good to know. She said he flinched (under anaesthesia) when she probed one of them so it must have really hurt.

Yuo think you can take me? ill eat ur dumb werewolf ass alive, loser.

Our cat continues to be medically baffling. She got a presumptive diagnosis of Transitional Cell Carcinoma 6 weeks ago when we did an ultrasound to look for the cause of her high calcium levels. We were going to start her on palladia but her appetite was still not great and we found out it was because her pancreatitis was flaring up again so we had been working on getting that under control and she's back to eating well again and putting on weight. Yesterday we noticed she was being weird at the litter box, only peeing a small amount before getting out, going to another litter box, and peeing a small amount again. Assuming this was progression of the cancer we took her in for an ultrasound today before finally starting her on palladia, and apparently her tumor has shrunk slightly and was visibly less dense in the ultrasound despite her getting no cancer treatment since her diagnosis.
