    Buprenex is pretty benign in terms of cardiovascular side effects, if that's your concern. And 11 really isn't that old. I wouldn't be too worried. Fingers crossed that it's something benign!

    Royal Canin has a hydrolyzed protein urinary diet. I don't think their other urinary diets have wheat - at least not high on the list - but they definitely include chicken and I think some have soy.

    Yes, I do have experience with lymphoma, unfortunately. The type and location really affects the prognosis - are we talking about GI lymphoma, I assume, since you mentioned weight loss?

    Kitty decided this morning that he doesn't need his feeding tube anymore. :D Appetite is much improved, though - fingers crossed that he was right and no tube feeding will be required. Biopsy results...

    They're called distichiae, and are not super common in horses (compared to dogs. Is the horse a Friesian, by chance?) Best treatment is permanent removal with surgery or cryotherapy - you can pluck...

    Most likely not. When I worked small animal, I used it on many, many kitties with no complications.

    Thank you all. Other than inappetance, he seems to be feeling pretty good (normal?) He had a nice normal poop in the litter box tonight, which is another encouraging sign (the things we get excited...

    So very sorry to hear about your kitty. I am dealing with yet-to-be determined GI issues in my own kitty right now, but it sounds far less serious than yours. It sounds as though he's in excellent...

    I like brown. I prefer brown tack to black on my chestnuts; my older horse has a black Wintec Isabell, but that's all I could find at the time. When it came time to get a dressage saddle for the...

    Thanks everyone. He's home tonight, but feels like crap. He's resting in the sick kitty pod, which is a little disturbing for me since Ivan spent a lot of time in it during his final illness. I'm...

    Incorrect. In fact, if the horse has a high lepto titer, it is considered to be a poorer candidate for implants. See AKB's link above.
