What is cause of bad breath in cats

My cat Cody has bad breath. He is a neutered 4-6 year old male striped tabby who throws up periodically (about every 10 days or so) but doesn’t seem sick. My vet has ordered a blood workup, results not yet in. He also has gingivitis and will get a second dental cleaning and extraction this March (six months from the last one). I feed him Royal Canin sensitive digestion formula hard kibbles exclusively. He will throw up anything else. Can you enlighten me? [Read more…]

Liver levels increased after tooth extraction and antibiotics

Our dog had some swelling on her face and it was determined that she had cracked a molar. A blood test was done prior to the extraction. She was administered many drugs for anesthesia and pain during the procedure then Baytril & Tram idol after the surgery. (Of course if you look up each of the drugs she was given they all have side effects of liver damage.)

On the 13th day of the Baytril she would not take it and became weary of anything we gave her. She lost her appetite and regurgitated/vomited often. We took her to another vet and he did a blood test and her kidney levels had risen to high and her liver levels were off the scale. They put her on fluids and now she is eating and drinking and becoming more like herself every day.

We took her back 3 days later to have the blood tests done and the levels are still not readable but she is acting fine now. He wants to give her an ultrasound to look at her liver & kidneys. [Read more…]
