Cat Health > cat feces smells terrible
Leo Lovebug- ♥

It's all about- the ear floof!

I had this problem when I adopted Leo and his brother Charlie as kittens. It smelled AWFUL and it woke me up, too. It was CRAZY! After multiple fecal sample examinations by the vet, we finally caught the problem. Coccidia. Apparently it doesn't always show up in the fecal samples? Not sure if this could be the situation for your kitty?

So sorry to hear about what is going on with Damian. You've gotten some great info from other posters and while I don't know much about FIP, I definitely agree that finding an internal medicine specialist or a vet that truly specializes in cats could be very beneficial.

Sending you lots of purrs and a bit of hope- at 5months old my little Leo developed very scary symptoms (not the same as Damian's, they were neurological issues). I truly thought I was going to lose him and then we saw a specialist who was able to diagnose and treat Leo and now he is a healthy 3 year old! Hang in there, miracles do happen.

Purring and purring for you and Damian hug

Gummi, I can't tell by your sentence structure- are you saying that the stores you go to do not sell Dogswell or Canyon Creek or are you saying those brands aren't made in China? I'm thinking you meant the former, that the stores do not carry those brands because they are made in China.

My beautiful dog Sophie passed away a year ago at age 16 so it's been awhile since I've bought dog treats. Years ago, when the FDA put out the first warning and I started reading the fine print, I was shocked to find Dogswell is made in China. I'm glad to hear you are not seeing those treats in stores and I hope that consumers continue to educate themselves and read the fine print (because at that point, you needed a magnifying glass to read on the Dogswell bag that it came from China).

Of course, Gummi, feeding dry food is a concern for urinary issues regardless of brand. There does seem to be a higher reporting rate of urinary issues and Wellness Core on the internet and I'm simply providing that information to the OP so that they are aware and can do their own research into it.

If you google "Wellness Core and crystals" or "Wellness Core urinary", you will find a significant number of posts from people reporting their cat developed urinary issues while eating Wellness Core dry. Charlie developed severe urinary crystals while eating Wellness Core (cannot say definitely that was the cause) but as soon as I switched him off that food, his urinary problems cleared up and he has been healthy ever since.

As Shadow has pointed out, there is no controversy, chicken jerky treats have been making dogs ill and killing them for years. Nearly all chicken jerky treats come from China, even the expensive "high end" ones at fancy stores. Read the fine print on all bags before purchase and keep yourself informed; I stopped buying chicken jerky treats for my dog years ago. Not going to chance it.

Any possibility of fleas? Some cats have severe flea allergies and can have the symptoms you've described from just one flea bite. I re-read your post a couple of times and I think if most everything else has been ruled out, you may be dealing with some type of a severe allergy (food or environmental or flea).

Stinkers, you mentioned skin scrapping. Did they also do a fungal culture to rule out ringworm? It costs about $50 and takes about two weeks for the results. The reason that I ask is because this sounds similar to something I went through with Lucy years ago. I thought I was going to have to make the decision, too, because none of the vets could figure out what was wrong with her. And she looked BAD, lots of scabs, fur loss, lesions, it was awful. I ended up taking her to a veterinary dermatologist and got her diagnosed and treated.

In Lucy's case, it turns out that she has severe food and environmental allergies. These issues caused the initial itchiness, lesions, and hair loss. She was treated with steroids. Unfortunately, she was exposed to ringworm fungus sometime during this period (which I did not know) and it turns out that steroids FEED the ringworm fungus, causing it to just explode all over her body due to her weakened immune system from the allergies.

I don't know if that could be part of the problem in your situation? Is there a veterinary dermatologist nearby? Sometimes it really takes a specialist to get to the bottom of the problem and get the correct diagnosis and treatment and it saves money in the long run.

Sending lots of purrs, please keep us updated. hug

Cat Health > Recurring Ear Infections

Ear infections can also be a sign of food and/or environmental allergies. What food are you feeding your kitty? My kitty had serious ear infections while eating foods with grains in them. She hasn't had an ear infection since I switched her to an all wet diet with no corn (Lucy is severely allergic to corn).

How is your kitty's skin and fur? Any other symptoms? If the ear infections continue, talk to your vet about the possibility of allergies.
