    A good, trustworthy vet can sometimes make all the difference. I'm glad you've found one that will take the time to get to the root of the problem. I sure hope Nakita is feeling better soon. Hugs for you both, and little Phoenix too!!

    I'm not anti-drug at all and totally agree. I just want to look at all options first and verify that we are using the right drug for the right problem. Currently, Nakita's vomiting could be allergy related or something totally different.

    Our new vet also agreed, because she is so young and the drug dangers, that placing her on Phenobarbitol would be a last resort over other trials and medications.

    Nakita's currently on Hill's z/d formula - which costs $22CDN for 4lbs. I'm *really* hoping she'll continue eating it AND it will solve her allergy.

    How true your statement is Queen of Poop. I totally agree.

    Prayers still on the way that precious Nakita gets well real soon.

    I'm glad that you have a vet now who seems to be trying all the options before resorting to strong medication! I think that Nakita will still learn to enjoy having little Phoenix around. It might even help distract her from some of her own ailments! I hope the new food makes the difference in her tummy troubles!
