Thank you so much for your support and great advice on grooming, medicine, and special supplements... you guys make e feel like I am not alone going through this ordeal!! It is great to have such a support system that whenever I have a problem I can just ask you all! And you guys are so knowledgeable! so big thanks to all of you for sticking around with us!!
Here is the Goma update:
First of all, he is better! Thanks you. He is using his litter just fine now. He also has very clean butt, thanks to my Vet, she shaved it for him yesterday at his visit. Goma is eating and drinking fine and was running around try to catch his Cat Quest toy!! I think he is going to be okay.
So, there were many concerns around the medicine Meloxicam. I received few e-mails telling me about this drug. People said it has very bad side effects for cats and it is not even approved to use for cats. Some even said that it kills cats!!! So I was very very concerned then I called my Vet to make sure this drug is safe for Goma. She assured me that it is very low dose that he is taking and when prescribed correctly it is safe and help them a lot removing discomfort. I am giving him the oral dose I have 2 more of those to go and that's it!
After all, Vet thinks what caused all of this is Goma's dirty butt!! So now I will wash, wipe his often and I will take him in to Vet to shave the area regularly as well, so this will NEVER happen to him again!!!!
SACHIE: So....are we cool now Goma-butt??
GOMA-BUTT: Yes we are cool, for now. You better keep it up!
SACHIE: I will...sorry again Goma-butt...
