I had a 16 year old cat, Linus, and he had kidney failure. I worked with him for 6 months giving him medicine, subquetanius(?) fluids, and special diet. At first it seemed to help he was more active and happy, but in the end I was having to give him fluids 2x a day and he just didn't seem to care anymore about anything, so "we" decided it was time to go to sleep and find peace. I went in with him and sat with him while he went to sleep and he seemed to understand. I would say do what u can till it is obvious that it is time.View Thread
where is the rash on your doxie? have you tried a "cone collar" to keep him from licking off the med? I have a cat that licks himself raw at times and have put antibiotic cream on it and wrapped it so he cant get to it. this may help.View Thread
