Splodge has a lump :-(

Post by Sally Jaque » Wed, 29 Sep 1999 04:00:00



I  noticed  it  last  night , it's  behind  his  ear  and  is  about  the  size  of  a  pea
He's  booked  into  the  vets  at  3.40pm (the  earliest  I  could  get  in) but  it's  not  my  normal  vet  on  today  and  the  vet  thats  on  is  one  that  I  don't  feel  very  confidant  with
Splodge  is  about  a  year  and  a  half

What  I'd  like  to  know  is  what  roughly  they  will  do  and  what  I  should  ask (my  cat  has  a  lump  like  this  and  they  put  a  needle  in  it  to  see  if  there  was  any  liquid  in  there , they  said  it  was  just  a  sist (I  think) and  that  it  was  OK  to  leave  it)

Thanks

Hi  everyone

Well , I  got  back  from  the  vets  about  an  hour  ago (I've  been  busy  cleaning!)
The  vet  said  that  it  was  almost  definatly  a  skin  cist  and  has  put  him  on  anti-biotics (Baytril!) for  5  days , 0.1 ml  a  day

I've  spent  my  whole  day  worrying , but  I  feel  a  bit  more  relaxed  now   :-)

I'm so glad to hear it was nothing serious.  Let us know how the
antibiotics work!

On a related note, my Bronwyn has recovered nicely from her lump
removal.  She still has a flap of skin that hasn't come off from her
stitches.  And, if you look hard, there is a shiny blue thread in
her belly fur that I KNOW is not supposed to be there.  Next time I
take the dogs or cat to the vet, I'll have Bronwyn tag along so the
vet can take care of these things.

He  hates  the  Baytril  and  it's  really  hard  to  get  it  in  him ,
he's  taken  to  hitting  to  syringe  away  from  his  mouth , very  cute
but  doesn't  get  the  anti-biotics  into  him!
Well , only  3  days  to  go  on  the  meds!

It's not exactly efficient, but when my guys have become thoroughly skilled
at outsmarting me with the meds, I've just smeared whatever didn't get into
them onto their fur -- they immediately*** off that icky stuff!

Heeee!  That is really clever, and diabolical.  :>  

Last time I used baytril, I finally found something that gets 'em to eat
it without a fight... Peanut Butter Juice!

What, your local supermarket doesn't sell peanut butter juice?  Well,
niether does mine.  :)  I mixed 2 parts water with 1 part peanut butter,
and mixed and mixed.  Peanut butter doesn't like mixing with liquids.
Eventually, I had a thick liquid which I could easily mix with the
medication.  Not only does peanut butter have a strong enough taste to
cover the bitter baytril, and it has such a strong, attractive smell
that I seriously doubt they TASTE it at all, they just gobble it down.  

Turning the peanut butter into "juice" first makes it easier to mix with
the meds than strait PB, and it takes away the stickyness so that the
little guys don't***on it.  Just make sure that you keep your leftover
PB juice in the fridge; I left it on the counter one night and it grew
into a big foamy mess.

Any chance that you could mix the Baytril in a small
amount of wet food that he likes (eg: baby food)? I
don't know if that would work better, but it may be
worth a try. When we had to give our girls Baytril,
the vet told us to mix it into their water bottle. But I
guess that meant that he gave us fairly concentrated
amounts for that purpose...

He  only  has  to  take  it  for  one  more  day , I  thought  I  might  mix
it  with  some  milk  as  he  loves  milk  and  will  take  it  all
