Feline Health

I re-joined one of my favorite lists of all times today, Fanciers Health. It’s been a long time since I’ve read posts on this list, but I see little has changed. Same old, kittens failing to thrive, what type of dry food is the best, which is the latest and greatest drug for chronic conditions? For example, in the first digest I received, a lady wrote asking if it would be okay to leave her “chronic snuffler” on Zithromax (an antibiotic) continuously for the rest of his life. The cat is suffering from recurring upper respiratory infections (something I’m sure the cat was vaccinated for as a kitten and likely has been continuously vaccinated for). A lot of good these vaccinations have done him.
