Welcome to our selfie entry for The Cat on My Head. Jack has solar eczema on his nose and paws during the summer. We try ointment and creams each year with varying degrees of success.
Recently he was prescribed ‘Suppress’ a tablet medication to stop/remove the eczema. He had one quarter tablet at set times over a two week period and the results were of great concern to us. Although the vet reassured us the side effects would decrease with a smaller dose, what actually happened frightened Mum a lot. Jack became constantly hungry and put on lot of weight, he also became morose and reclusive.
We immediately stopped the tablets. It is winter here and even though it gets sunny we believe Jack’s fundamental well being at the moment is of greater importance. If necessary we can retry a much smaller dose if we feel the need to act on Jack’s eczema.
Jack is fine now thank goodness and wants me to remind you that our giveaway closes soon and friends, worldwide, are welcome to enter!
