Zoey after IV fluids have been administered.

On Saturday, September 5, Jim noticed Zoey stumbling around as her hind legs consistently gave out on her. She still seemed well and alert and wanted to move around, but unable to get very far. We feared the worst and after some quick Google searches called the emergency vet and got her there as quick as we could.

A vet tech followed by a veterinarian were able to see her quickly. The ruled out stroke and instead concluded it was dehydration and her kidneys not properly getting toxins out of her system.

They admitted her and got her on an IV for fluids and antibiotics.

She made progress throughout the weekend as her creatinine and phosphorous levels fell to normal levels. She impressed the staff there with her voracious appetite and they admitted to us with the condition that we brought her in, they expected her to have no appetite and to be vomiting the entire time.

We were finally able to bring her home Tuesday at noon time and with her came a bag of IV fluids and kidney friendly prescription cat food.

We've now given her fluids subcutaneously three different times and she's handling it like a pro. She has also put on a few much needed ounces in weight and generally looks better.

A "side effects" of sort with the IV fluids is that she puffs up a little and is a bit off balance until the fluids have a chance to evenly distribute in her body. Attached are two pictures of her after receiving her fluids. We call her our little lion when she looks like this!

She look so well and cute and she is strong!

Im a Cat lover!

I too love my cat. His name is Billy. Whenever he feels uneasy I used to take her to nearest Pet Pharmacy for medication. He loves running all the day and we feed him cat meal and he is doing good. He is one of the regular member of my home.

How lovely Zoey is! I hope she will be better soon!

I'm glad she's better now!

I feel so sorry to hear about her sufferings. I think if you need to take proper care of it and make sure that it will not be happened in future. She is so cute

Good to know that your pet is in good condition and is out of danger. Is there the Short Term Medical Insurance facility available for the animals? If yes then you better should have done it because pets get sick often. It helps you help you with some of the costs for the procedures and medicines.
Regards,

Your veterinarian will provide you with the fluid to give your cat, will give you instructions on how much to administer and how frequently. Also, your vet will supply you with additional material needed to administer the fluids

She is such a beautiful animal and I feel so sorry for her recent health problems. She is so cute.

This is really fantastic post containing all information that we need for our pet

I found a interesting site. Enjoyed a lot by reading each comment. Very informative. Thanks!

She is so cute, so happy to hear she did so well at the vet and is home and back with some more weight. Taking her fluids like a pro, healthy appetite and active as every. She loves being on Cam 2 and hopefully we'll see her there curled up with Finnegan more this winter.THank you.

Health Scare for Zoey!!!!!!!!!!!!
She is such a beautiful animal and I feel so sorry for her recent health problems.

It can be a good idea sometimes to get some kind of short term medical insurance so that you do not have to pay all of the huge fees for the medicine. THanks for sharing this information..

Is Zoey back to normal these days? She is such a beautiful animal and I feel so sorry for her recent health problems. It can be a good idea sometimes to get some kind of short term medical insurance so that you do not have to pay all of the huge fees for the medicine.

it might engage me re-doing the whole location again. I wouldn't brain the dispute, but it would be rather the time commitment.

He motionless enjoys cozying upward with Zoey on Cam two and rather than being a bit across sinker is moderately healthy!

bizarre postings here. I'm sure Zoe can totally relate to ink cartridges & acai berry. some of these links might even be threatening :(

Very informative site about pets it is really going to be very helpful for all

It’s so nice Article. I appreciate it. I will keep visiting this blog very often. I am very pleased to find this site.

Thanks for sharing this information, It can be very helpful for me to take care of my pets now taking care of health is also very important.

I hope that everything works out well. I had the same problem with my kitty. I had been paying for pet health insurance for so much time and I was thinking it's pointless but here I am now... thankful for their help.

Great info.I like all your post.I will keep visiting this blog very often.It is good to see you verbalize from the heart and your clarity on this important subject can be easily observed..

It’s so nice Article. I appreciate it. I will keep visiting this blog very often. I am very pleased to find this site.

Finally everything is well. That's the main thing. Loves to know Zoey's present condition.

I’m impressed, you know what you’re talking about

What I'd like to do is have the images be linkable so users can click on good ones that come up to be archived to a gallery. But to make that happen, it might involve me re-doing the entire site again. I wouldn't mind the challenge, but it would be quite the time commitment.

Have you ever thought of putting up a gallery with pics on the site?

side effects" of sort with the IV fluids is that she puffs up a little and is a bit off balance and this things is very important to think about.

Thanks for the post. Keep the great work.

What a cute kitty! On a serious note, this reminded me of something similar that happened to me. I'm glad that all is well now though.

A vet tech followed by a veterinarian were able to see her quickly. These steps are not only easy but very effective to be used also

She has also put on a few much needed ounces in weight and generally looks better. it also gave lot of info for taking care of cats and pets. Thanks

its too much lovely to know that when it came a bag of IV fluids and kidney friendly prescription cat food. will that be easily available or not ? Thanks for wonderful share.

I feel so sorry to hear about her sufferings. I think you need to take proper care of it and make sure that it will not be happened in future. She is so cute.

Finnegan is doing well, thanks for asking. We don't believe his paw ever completely healed, but he remains active around the house and isn't complaining if there is any pain. He still enjoys cozying up with Zoey on Cam 2 and other than being a bit over weight is quite healthy!

How is Finnegan doing with his paw. I am curious to find out. Thank you

Brenda, Boots & Ozzie

She is doing very well! Taking her fluids like a pro, healthy appetite and active as every. She loves being on Cam 2 and hopefully we'll see her there curled up with Finnegan more this winter.

How's the little lion holding up? She is so cute, so happy to hear she did so well at the vet and is home and back with some more weight. Caught her on cam 2 earlier today too : )

aw, she does look like a little lion! I think I've heard of this, CRF? unfortunately kitties are susceptible to renal conditions and usually they don't display symptoms, unlike other animals, until it's pretty severe. i'm thrilled that they all have such observant and loving parents ready to jump in an emergency, and she's looking pretty perky on cam2 right now! hugs to the sweet little girl, and I'll be checking in (as usual) on her :-)
