Tummy Trouble

Update from Mom Paula: I did take Praline to the Vet today and she was running a fever of 104.5. Her teeth were fine, there were no blockages, but the vet found evidence of "flea poop" again! What gives? She NEVER goes outside. Anyway, the Vet said she had something called "Flea Fever," which comes from a bacteria that fleas carry. She gave Praline some medicine for the fever (said she should be much better tomorrow morning), some antibiotics, and the Advantage Orange. The Vet said the diarrhea is probably a result of the fever. The bad thing is that I must travel to Louisville, Kentucky next week, so I am probably going to board her at the Vet's office so they can give her the medicine and watch her. Please keep her in your purrs!

I've had a little tummy ache the last two days. Mom is watching me close today to see how I am doing before she calls the vet. I'm eating good and drinking water, but I've just had a stinky litter box and a little loose stools. Of course, she just gave me some more of that Laxatone two days ago, too, so I don't know what she expects.



Mom has also been feeling poorly lately, too. We'll be around to visit when we are feeling better.

we get laxatone ALL the time. It is good to help with colon issues! It shouldn't cause loose ones though.

Why not have your mom drop off a sample of your stool to the vets? Can they run it without you having to go? If your tests are like ours, it takes about 10 minutes to check. It'll look for obvious things!

I would check with your vet first, but I'd suggest that while you're gone and Praline is at the vet that you set off flea bombs in your house. My vet says that it takes a combination of things to knock out a flea infestation. We use Zodiac Fleatrol Fogger and we've also used zodiak carpet spray with good results.
