Interesting article, Kat -- thanks for posting it.
It is gratifying to know some of these folks may be held accountable for this horrible pet food debacle. "...deaths of more than 4,000 cats and dogs." Geez.
I've pretty much given up on ever getting compensation for all the money I've spent on Roscoe's care and special food. Nobody ever got back to me from any of the class-action groups I tried to contact, and I just don't have the time to pursue the matter as vigorously as is clearly necessary. Would be nice, though.
Roscoe continues to be just a little bit better. He's down to once a week for the subcutaneous fluid injections. The only problem is, every time a change is made or contemplated, we have to have blood work done, and that's about $100 a pop. He remains remarkably patient about the whole business. At one point this winter, he contracted a (presumably unrelated) bladder infection, and I had to give him antibiotics. For a week I tried to deal with a liquid dose administered with an eyedropper, and it was a mess! Just when I thought I'd gotten him immobilized and his mouth pried open, and aimed the stupid dropper at the back of his throat, he'd jerk away at the crucial moment and the medicine would go squirting across the room. Aaarrgghh! When I told the vet it wasn't working, she gave me (HA! "gave"! make that "sold") pre-filled syringes of stuff to be injected subcutaneously, just like the NACL. Piece of cake. No clue why he prefers being stuck with a needle to swallowing something.
Anyhow, I hope these folks get the punishment they deserve.
