    Digestive Enzymes

    @Dr. Christina This is actually the same kitty (Jespa) - sorry for the confusion.

    Hyperthyroid cat

    Thank you @Dr. Christina We did have our initial appt. in June and Dr. Jeff's instructions were to give Silica Terra 1 time, so we could see if there was any reaction. I did inquire via email about the follow up in terms of the Silica - I thought I was meant to give it again, but Dr. Jeff did...

    Digestive Enzymes

    Hi @Dr. Christina I have been giving him probiotics for years on and off and started again this past winter - he gets 1/2 2/day. I also give him a pinch of turmeric, flax seed, and bone broth, which I have been buying at the farmer's market. I have tried fish oil and magnesium but he won't eat...

    Hyperthyroid cat

    Hi @Dr. Christina I have a follow-up online appt. with Dr. Jeff in a few weeks - I am definitely concerned about the middle of the night begging for food and his digestion (it's improving but not great yet), so I am hoping we can slowly balance his systems.

    Digestive Enzymes

    Hi Everyone, My kitty has been constipated (on and off) for years. I have tried so many things (diet, supplements, laxatives, etc,) and he has been doing better but only goes every 3rd day and is still constipated periodically. I had reduced the laxatives but may have to increase them again b/c...

    Hyperthyroid cat

    Thank you, @Dr. Jeff -- I hope I can do this! He is on so many supplements right now and it's a bit overwhelming but I'm nervous to stop any of them.. I guess I wean off over time. His BEAM is pretty good - he seems a bit more perky. His appetite is still strong - he is supposed to lose a lb or...

    Hyperthyroid cat

    Hi @KaraK How is your kitty doing? I wanted to let you know that the NHV Resthyro herbal supplement worked for Jespa - his recent bloodwork came back normal. If you have any questions I'm happy to discuss with you. Hope your kitty is doing better!

    Aspiration/wheezing when I give my cat liquid supplements

    Thank you! @JoannC - I didn't realize the plastic syringes are only good for a few usages. I have been using the same 2 for a while..

    Aspiration/wheezing when I give my cat liquid supplements

    Thanks @GinnyW - I wonder if it is ok to mix the herbal liquid supplements with cream - I'll have to check but that's a good idea.

    Aspiration/wheezing when I give my cat liquid supplements

    Thank you @EdwinA ! Yes, the cough never lasts thankfully but it makes me nervous when it's happening - that's a good idea re the butter. :)

    Aspiration/wheezing when I give my cat liquid supplements

    Thank you! Yes, it begins right after I give him the liquid. His BEAM seems to be the same after, but when he is wheezing and coughing I get so worried - I give him a little water w/ the syringe and it seems to help. It has happened a handful of times since I started giving him liquid...

    Aspiration/wheezing when I give my cat liquid supplements

    I give my cat liquid supplements via a syringe and once in a while he starts wheezing and coughing - very scary. I don't know if this is serious. I try to inject the syringe in the side of his mouth and give him the liquid slowly - it is a small amount. Does anyone know what might be happening...
