(Phys Org2)   On top of everything else crappy in the world, now there's antibiotic-resistant infections showing up in our pets. Your dog wants less antibiotics prescribed for viruses. And your cat is flat-out going to kill you in your sleep before he goes   ( phys.org) divider line

I took LeChuck in to see a vet last week because he had been sneezing excessively. The vet said that the likely cause was a viral infection, as his symptoms did not suggest a bacterial cause that could be treated with antibiotics, though she noted that some people demanded antibiotics regardless of the circumstances.

I flat-out stated that if antibiotics are not warranted, I do not want them.

I left with some nutritional supplement treats. LeChuck (and also Guybrush, who the vet said could receive them as well) have taken more of a liking to them than I suspect that they would take to antibiotics.

I adopted 2 kittens and when I brought them in for the checkup one had a high fever.  The vet said there was no way to tell if it was bacterial or viral but we erred on the side of one shot and luckily it worked out, but stories like this worry me.

He was going to do that anyway. He's a cat.

NotDoug: fewer antibiotics


That's just what your pet peeve wants.

My cat's going to wake me up first, because she's unwilling to let me get a good night's rest, even of the eternal sort.
