I believe my cat has an oral tumor! Please help!

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

I believe my cat has an oral tumor. In the past 2 weeks the bump under her chin has grown 3x the size. And I just noticed that she lost a tooth and her other teeth are turning sideways. She has also been drooling a lot of blood. As well, losing a lot of weight. So is here anything over the counter type of medication I can give to her to help her ease the pain? What are some ways to help with an oral tumor in a cat without having surgery?

Please help! – Kristin

Tenactin on Cats

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

Is it really okay to put Tenactin on a cat knowing she’ll lick it off or is an e-collar a must? A vet recommended this for her ringworm in place of sulfur dips, but I don’t want to permanently e-collar her until it clears up. Help!


My Cat has unstoppable dandruff

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

My cat has crazy dandruff. I tried bathing her but she freaked out and pooped in the tub. We brush her at least once a day. She didn’t use to have a problem, and we haven’t made a sudden change in her diet or environment. What will I do now? It’s super gross.


We think our cat got porcupine quills in him. How do we know for sure?

Monday, June 18th, 2012

We let our cat outside and he wandered off. About an hour later he came back with something stuck in this skin on his nose. We think it might porcupine quills but we are not sure. It looks like chips of wood but it also might be quills of a porcupine. Can you help?

The color of whatever is in his nose is like a brand new wood color like a bleached yellow kinda. Anyone else have any thoughts?

My cat has a lot of fleas and his medicine isn’t working

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

My cat has a lot of fleas and his medicine(frontline) isn’t working.

My cat is an indoor/outdoor cat and he sleeps in my bed every night. Lately I’ve noticed a lot of fleas on him, on my bed, and all over my room. There has also been salt like specs which are apparently flea eggs all over my comforter. I love my cat and I don’t want to kick him out of my bed! Anyone have any suggestions on how I can fix this problem?





My cat is always licking herself. What can I do to get her to stop????

Friday, November 11th, 2011

My cat seems to spend almost every waking moment licking herself.  Her fur is damp and sometimes she licks so much she creates a bald spot.  She also throws up more than average.  I think it is a bad habit.  What can I do to get her to stop?





Cat with large growth on whisker pad. Help!

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

My daughter’s cat (about 13 years old) has developed a large growth on his whisker pad, most whiskers are gone along with fur in the area of the growth.  He is okay other than the growth, eats/drinks and does not seem to be in pain.  She took him to the vet and they said it is not an abscess and they want to do a biopsy ($600) to find out what it is and if it is cancerous.  Do you know what this could be?  If she does do the biopsy and it is cancerous she will not be able to afford radiation, do you feel a biopsy is necessary?  They said if it is a non-cancerous growth/tumor they could not remove it because it would remove part of his face, plus I am sure that procedure would be expensive as well.

Do you have an advice????


Cat with skin condition that won’t clear up. Help!

Sunday, April 13th, 2008
How do I treat a cat with a skin condition that doesn’t respond to oral antibiotics and isn’t mange or scabies?  Crusty sores on ears and head clear up temporarily with application of topical meds like neosporin.
