Oh no.
I don't know if you still want to try, I came across this animal hospital from online during my research for a good vet: http://www.veshospital.com.sg
They need your vet to do a referral though, can't just make an appointment with them directly.
I have not been to them personally, but looking at their equipments and doctors, you might want to try ? Breaks my heart to hear your kitty like that.
thanks for the tip. i found a really good clinic that believes in holistic pet management... they don't just do western taught vet treatment, but TCM, japanese supplements and they taught us what kind of food and water and even what kind of dishes we should be using to reduce cancer incidents. i've never been to a vet like this before and we were very impressed. after feeding all the supplements, can see a definitely 'perkier' cat. so even if there is no cure we just want to make her final days comfortable. it's gentle oak vets at ghim moh. they are very highly recommended.

and unfortunately lung cancer has very poor response to chemo and the side effects of the chemotherapy will probably kill the cat before the actual cancer does...

Hi all. One of the community cats that we are feeding had this on his leg. What's that? Need to see a vet or is there off the shelf human ointment that we can use?

Thanks in advance

Hi, brought the cat to the vet. It's a badcase of fungal infection. Now we have to apply the cream on the infected part for one month to see how it goes. Actually, need to take oral too, but my wife and I are not too keen of giving medicine to cats as we got scratched by them before. Review in one month, then we see how.

Oh thank you for taking him to the vet!

Instead of oral medicine, is there an alternative injection med the vet can give instead ?
Or have you tried cutting the pill really small and mix it in his wet food? It doesn't always work but worth a try.

Hi all, I visited a cat shelter recently and befriended a cat with its neuro issues. The cat can stand but it the whole body and legs will be all stiffed up. Can hardly walk, sometimes will just fall down sideway. Usually in his cage so he can have easy access to food/water/litter and get bullied by other cats or injured by them when playing. Only when volunteers visit to clean, feed supplement will let it out to walk walk, relax in his favourite cat tree etc ...

Do you guys think TCM can help heal the cat so that it can at least walk steadily again?

Hello,
Poor thing. Has he visited a vet to diagnose what exactly his condition is? Without it, I think it's hard to know what the proper therapy or medication (if any) should be.
I have no experience with TCM for animal so can't comment on this one.

These are list of vets in Singapore who does help strays/community cats, but I am unsure to which length they will offer subsidy and for what services.
https://www.catwelfare.org/vets/
You can try calling some of them and ask the cost for FiV/FeLV test for shelter cats. Sorry I couldn't be much more of a help.

Hi, i am very sorry to hear about your cat.

You can give Curcumin supplement,. Or add colloidal silver to her water or food. Can give fish oil and probiotics also.

If you got diffuser, you can add liquid colloidal silver and diffuse it. The mist is beneficial and make ure cat breath easy.

Take care and pls make her as comfortable as possible. Overall its the comfortability and your love which will help her go a long way

Hi I have heard of ppl doing Acupuncture for cats who were paralysed. It worked for most of the cases. Maybe you can try that.

Hi. Hope you don't mind me asking some questions first.
Is your cat male/female? Neutered?
Is he/she urinating or spraying? Where is the spot ?
Dettol or any other cleaner will not help to get rid off the smell.
Try a cat urine eliminator, I use "Simple Solution Boozters Stain and Odor Remover", bought from Polypet. But they have many other brands too for the same purpose.
