Meezer Rule Wednesday

The Zithromax has really given Kavan what Not the Mama called the "hershey squirts". Both Not the Mama and Zevo Calamari suggested probiotics. Kavan's been getting 1/2 a capsule every day, but it hasn't helped all that much. He's been eating way too much Fancy Feast (the wheat gluten free brands), so Mom is putting both of us on a Fancy Feast Free diet. We got homemade chicken and brown rice tonight. Kavan loved it, I wanted my Fancy Feast back. So Kavan inspired the rule this week....


When on antibiotics, be sure not to leave poopy paw or butt prints in the sink, or you may get the water turned on you.

Kavan looks very cute sitting in the sink. Yikes on tracking the poopy paws through the house though! I hope the squirts clear up soon!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oh no, poopy paws! We hope dat dem hershey skwirts go away, mom's do get awfully cranky when dey find one of those kinda messes.

Tyler said...

I feel for you Kavan, you've been through a rough time lately. I hope those VET people figure out how to help you best soon!
And I agree with Dragonheart, you are too cute!

Sorry Kavan...the squirts STINK (literally). I got probiotic yogurt when I was on the antibiotics. Zith is hefty though so I'm not surprised its not nice to your system. Hopefully you'll feel better soon! Oh, have you tried pumpkin? You mix canned pumpkin (NOT the pie filling) with yogurt and baby food and it either binds your poo or makes it softer depending on what you need.

Yep, poopy paw prints is a big giveaway! When I got an upset tummy from my medicines I ate some yogurt and I got much better.

I'm trying to create a cat first aide kit and I ran across this info, at http://www.petsynergy.com/firstaid.html, that made me think of Kavan

:A"...useful thing to have is pediolyte, or another dehydration fluid. This is basically water and electrolytes and is essential if your animal is having diarrhea or any signs of shock, such as low temperature, cold extremities, pale gums and weakness.You will need a syringe to administer the pediolyte and a five or ten cc syringe usually works well, you can give one or two syringes of this into the mouth every hour until they are looking better, depending on the size of the animal. To check for signs of dehydration it is best to take the skin at the scruff of the neck and raise it up between your finger and thumb then let go. If it goes immediately back down to normal they are not dehydrated, if it stays up for more than a few seconds, then they are starting to get dehydrated and need to be given oral rehydration fluids immediately as described above.

Aw, poor little guy, that can't be fun at all. :(

Hi - I know that Kavan was on an antibiotic before the Zithromax, too.
You can't start the pro-biotic until after the Zithromax doses are complete (because the pro-biotic is GOOD bacteria, and Zithromax doesn't discriminate, it kills the pro-biotic, too). It may take a few days after the Zithromax is complete for the pro-biotic to take effect. They say that without pro-biotics, it can take three months to three YEARS for humans to completely re-colonize the intestinal tract with good bacteria. So, don't give up the hope for benefits yet.
While the little bugger has the hershey squirts, make sure he's getting plenty of liquids.
Hope this helps a bit.
I know he's a tough little guy and he'll bounce back soon!
Much love,
Not The Mama
