Neville is much improved. I gave him his injection of Cerenia Thursday afternoon, and he hasn’t thrown up since. He is eating and acting normally, though he now spends a great deal of his time at the top of the taller cat-tree in the sitting room, rather than in the bedroom on the bed. That’s fine with me – cats often change their habits after a trauma (and having all his teeth removed, followed by a bad illness, counts, I think) – though if he is ever sick up there, the mess will be impressive.
I was worried that the Cerenia wouldn’t work on Nev, as he has never had it before. That shouldn’t be a cause of ineffectiveness; nonetheless, I bought it specifically for Renn, and it seemed proporietorially his. I never thought I would use it first (or ever) on the Nevsky.
But I am relieved that it worked. I feel vindicated in buying it, though I wish I had never had to use it. Even so, I am confident in giving it now, since the manner in which it was delivered was obviously correct, and confident in this particularly vial’s worth. Neville’s doctor is the rescue-group’s regular veterinary, and not those at the hospital whose head office changed their policies, though if he had gone to the hospital for Cerenia, a technician would have been sufficient to inject it. But Thursday’s dose here at home saved the cost of a veterinary visit, and the time required for it. Most importantly, it saved Neville the stress of going.
Now, he can devote the weekend to important work, much of which looks like this…
Cerenia is pretty impressive stuff. I'm very happy to hear it got the job done!ReplyDelete
So good that you were able to deliver the cerenia yourself.ReplyDelete
We cats really do not like going to the Vet or traveling ;)
Good news for Neville. Staying at home and getting the med. that has evidently helped steady his tummy. And now feels like climbing up out of the reach of humans, possibly, lol.ReplyDelete
Oh I am so glad Neville is feeling better!ReplyDelete
I'm so glad to hear the Cerenia worked and Neville is feeling much better. You were quite correct to keep it on hand. Why have to increase a sick animal's stress level by taking him to the vet, and not to mention, you would probably have to wait a day or two until you could get an appointment.ReplyDelete
This is great news. Neville deserves that kind of work!ReplyDelete
I am glad to hear the Cerenia worked for Neville. It saved a lot of stress for both of you.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear the Cerenia worked and Neville is back to taking care of cat business. Hope you both have a restful weekend!ReplyDelete
I'm sure glad that Neville is doing much better and we pray it stays that way.ReplyDelete
Yes, Neville must continue his important work!ReplyDelete
Bless the little fella...So pleased it'sReplyDelete
working out for him...!x
I know that helped the Admoral for a short period each time she was administered it. She was like a new girl for a few days. But she was very ill. Neville, I am so glad to read this about you this morning! You are looking handsome as well as in fine fettle! Chase your sisfur!ReplyDelete
We're so glad to hear Neville is doing so much better!ReplyDelete
Cerenia is a drug with which I am familiar as Lukas takes it and tolerates it well. I'm glad Necille is feeling better.ReplyDelete
Glad you are feeling so much better, Neville!ReplyDelete
Relaxing is a good thing to do!
