update on nitro

my boy is doing fine. he’s resting now. he’s happy. i took the cone off of his head. it was making him so uncomfortable. i hated seeing him struggling to just lie down even so i took it off. and he hasnt been licking himself. so that is good. he ate his dinner. i hand fed him. because he still had the cone on while he was eating. but he did eat. so thats great. he’s been pretty quiet still but thats to be expected since he’s still recovering, i’m just glad i trusted my instincts when i knew he was not feeling good and got him to the vets. always trust your instincts. you’ll know when something is wrong with your pet. as i think i said earlier in the last post, i’m taking a week off the ILS course. actually i’ll have two weeks off. because my holiday is booked for the following week. but i’m taking next week off so nitro can recover fully. tomorrow he’ll start his medications. he has to take 2 tablets in the morning, and one at night. i also got this herbal remedy from the vet for him. you put a pinch of it on his food each day. she said it might help his digestive system. we’ll see. its not expensive so if it works i’ll keep using it. i’m happy with his progress though. he’s gonna be ok and i’m just so glad. thanks for all of the support and prayers. they are really appreciated.

  1. I’m so glad he’s fine. But, be careful about not using his cone. He shouldn’t be licking the area yet, it’d be easy for a new infection to get going. If he’s messing the area, might wanna put the cone back on for a day or two. 🤔

  2. Poor Nitro! I’m so glad he’s going to be OK…I hate when our fur-babies aren’t well. Makes me feel so helpless. You are so right about listening to our gut! I always know when something is not right with one of my kitties. Us “moms” just know! Please give Nitro some extra lovin’ from Auntie Mindy!


  3. So glad to hear he’s doing better now. I’m sure it will only get better now. I think you do the right thing ot going to the ILS course next week, he needs some time to recover fully. And yeah I completely agree with you as for trusting our instincts.
