Rusty Update

Hi, this is Rusty's Mom again. I just spoke with Rusty's vet and he's doing fine. She told me I can pick him up around 6:30 EDT, they wanted to give him fluids one more time and make sure that he's cleaned up. She said that he's pretty much cleaned out now. She suggested giving him the Petromalt on a daily basis for a week or so, then every other day after that. She also told me that I could put some Benefiber in his stinky goodness food or try some canned pumpkin or even baby food squash, just to get him a little more fiber in his diet. I'm thinking that now he's going to join me and the Guy trying to keep things regulated around here.

She did tell me that the last x-ray showed some arthritis in his spine, which is not unusual for a cat his age. But, other than that, he's in great shape age considered. So, I'm relieved. He'll probably post something tomorrow and tell you all about it.

Rusty, we all know how you feel. Poor baby we are so happy you can come home. Our dear Michelangelo suffered from chronic constipation for years and we would give him laculose to help him along as best we could, but he still needed those enemas on a regular basis.

Oh I am glad that things worked out for him and everything moved along. I had no idea you could give the kitties benefiber - such a good idea that I may look into that myself.
