Alera's Wound Treatment Day 8

17:30 4December2007

Today the doc sedated Alera for extensive cleaning on the wound area. Dead skin and scab were removed. The cleaning took not more than half an hour but the sedation last for like 1 hour plus. I waited there for Alera until he regained full consciousness before we went home.

This time pain killer was given instead of just antibiotic. Alera was very hungry when we came back from the vet and he has eaten almost a can of tuna with the cranberry relief.

You mentioned in your video that Alera is not drinking his water. My cat had UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) problems and, too, was not drinking enough water when our vet recommended the Drinkwell Pet Fountain. It is amazing how the flowing water fascinates my cats and especially the one with the UTI. She drinks so much more water with this fountain than before.

Brian's right. I have heard that tuna long-term is bad for cats, bad for their kidneys. But if it's short-term, like you should be fine, I would think. Especially if you are offsetting it with the cranberry supplement. Anyway, glad to see Alera is doing better! I hope he recovers soon! Haven't posted lately but check the site everyday. :)

If Alera loves his tuna meals while he's recovering but doesn't drink much water... how about adding some liquid to the tuna along with the cranberry mix? When I want to rehydrate my cats (since I live in the desert), I'd add water to their favorite meal and they would simply drink all the water and then "attack" the wet food. You could try a little bit to test it... Just a simply suggestion.

Thanks for sharing all these updates on Alera! He's so well loved and cared!!!
