Anonymous asked: My 5 year old indoor male cat appears to have worms. He's not been to see a vet since he was a kitten and I treat him for fleas every few months. The only reason I know he has worms is because I see the little rice like strings on his fur near his butt. Is it safe to treat him on my own with one of the pet store products, or do you feel it's best to bring him in for an appointment? And I also have a 2 year old female cat but she shows no signs of worms. Should she be treated too just in case?

Hello !
If the kitties are acting fine and you just noticed worms (tape worms from fleas), ok to treat with praziquantel 23mg tab we which you may find at a pet supply store. Topical flea meds last no more than 3 weeks and it is important to treat house with boric acid white powder from home depot. All kitties at home and other pets should be treated for fleas and tapes at the same time. - Galloway Cat Clinic

Anonymous asked: In the near future, I need to take flight with my 3 cats in cabin. The total travle hours is about 5 hours (including 3 hours flight time). Is your clinic provide them medicine for calming during their trip?

Yes, we have many clients flying with their cats. We don’t always recommend med . If cats do have anxiety with any car ride / flight before, then we dispense med after physical exam. But if you think they are not very anxious cats, try feliway plug in and spray at home several days before the travel and if they calm down a lot, they may not need medication. Plz, don’t forget to put thick towel in their carrier for any urine/ bowel accident along with trash bags. Plz, check airline requirememt to make sure they don’t need rabies certificate.
We wish you good luck on your travel.

Hello,
I am so sorry about the carpet. Soft paws are really good option. Plz, try it. You can get them on-line. It is inexpensive and people can apply it at home. However, if you are not sure or if there is any chance you can get hurt, plz, let us do so at the clinic.

Anonymous asked: Can anything be done about male Spraying? My Balinese was a rescue who was not neutered until I adopted him when he was about 18 months old, so he already had the habit. Neutering didn't slow him down, neither did hormone pills, Depro-Provera or buspirone. Please let me know what your ideas are. I do have 2 other males who spray occasionally, but Tynee-Sun must be monitored constantly

I am so sorry you are haivng this trouble at home. To tell you the truth, if male cats have sprayed more than 1 year, the chances to stop this habit are close to zero. Since you have 2 other males, it can get worse because of their presence. However, if you are willing to try one more time, plz, keep him in a room away from the other cats and give him his own litter box, his own feeding station, use feliway plug-in in the room, discuss with your vet use of prozac(fluoxetine). You are doing this for at least 6 months. The problem started because he got neutered late and he has strong sense of his territory. If he has own secured spot, like a room he can stay alone or with people only, and reduce his anxiety about his territory with some meds, you will get the best chance to stop him from spraying.
