Our commcat Blackie needed urgent help so we catnapped him and sent him to the vet. He has kidney problems with his creatinine on 2.9 and his BUN values were high. His X-ray confirmed his cough and phlegm problems as well. He was given 250 ml SubQ at the vet's and we brought him to acupuncture to help him with his chest.
It seemed he may have been in many fights as his top saddle was too tough for the SubQ needle as well as the acupuncture needles. But at least we managed to help him through.
Yesterday was his 2nd SubQ and acupuncture and already he has not coughed or sneezed at all. He will stay with me for another week as he has to go back to the vet for review of his cough and kidney test.
