Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
My 13 year old cat has renal failure.Vet is recommending Epogen for Anemia, Is this safe?
Labs from yesterday, compared to 3 months ago showed Bun came down from 60 to 50, creatinine same, 2.8, electrolytes all normal range, wbc, normal, Rbc dowmn from 5.7 to 5.2, HCT down from 33 to 26.7, HGB up from 10.4 to 11.7.
I am assuming this is a non regenerative Anemia as my vet reports .
She eats only canned no grain food, low carb, low phosphorus, low sodium.
I give her a b complex, Pet sun Chlorella, Probiotic with digestive enzymes and unscented salmon oil as supplements.I also give her Sub Q fluids at home, twice a week.
She has a great appetite,just drinks alot of water.
