Daily Happiness

We took Jasper to the vet tonight to get him checked out. He seems really healthy otherwise, but still has soft poops all the time. :( The doctor confirmed that he seems very healthy, which is good! She gave us another deworming pill, and some other medicine to try, and they're going to do a stool sample and see what they can see.

I wasn't sure how he would do with the pill (the other time we got him dewormed was a liquid) but they had pill pockets you could take home, so I grabbed a couple of those and he just gobbled it right up.

He is almost ten pounds, can you believe it? I think the girls were barely ten pounds when they were a year old, much less six months, so he is going to end up way bigger than them.

Here is my sweetie guy the other day in the laundry basket.

Pill pockets are awesome!

I work at a vet and have a few suggestions...

Instead of spending money on pill pockets, you could try a small but of ice cream or meat to shove it in.

If the test comes back negative (make sure they're looking for giardia and coccidia) then a few other questions I would have are...

Have you tried probiotics? Has he been tested for feline leukemia?

The answer may be that he has IBD symptoms and you may need to play around with what you are feeding. Cut out grains, only feed one protein source, etc. An example would be something like Natural Balance LID.
