Sammy after PU surgery
"My Sammy, 8 year old rescue cat, had PU surgery in October 2017 after blocking. The recovery has not been as smooth and problem free as we would have hoped. About a month ago we noticed frequent non productive trips to the litter box followed about 20 minutes later with a visit that was normal. We have also had problems with obsessive licking of the surgery site.. we have been to the vets, tried antibiotics, pain pills, had urinalysis and urine cultures, ultrasound and we can come up with no medical explanation for this licking.
Well on January 12th we received our bottle of Tripsy, I started it right away by directly administering it into his mouth from the dropper (my boy is not a wet food eater.. found one kind after trying hundreds that he will lick at so didn’t want to add the Tripsy to the food and have him stop eating it). I was fearful that he would froth and fight me every step of the way.. he hasn’t, in fact he comes to the refrigerator now looking for it.
By the first of the following week the frequent non productive trips to the box had ceased and while he is making more frequent trips to the box each visit is productive (normal)..woohoo!! Now if we could only find a way to get him to stop licking without wearing the collar we would be in heaven."
