When Thomas got fluids I got lactated ringers to use. Afte I got terumo needles and he got used to the routine, he was fine.
He would actually run to his spot and wait while I warmed them up.
I use a different vet now and they use normasol or plasma lyte, not lrs.
I know every cat is different but I’ve tried fluids with three other cats and they all are very uncooperative with the other types.
Can the normasol and plasmalyte sting as it goes in?
The vets office usually gives fluids with cerenia, appetite stimulant and b vitamins in it and it must sting because all of them acted like it burnt. I couldn’t do them at all but even the plain fluids she meows and tries to get away the whole time.
Eta that I have a call into the vet to get a prescription for lactated ringers. It’s worth trying before it gets bad enough that I won’t do it.
She’s 17. I’m not going to be make her miserable and to run away from me.
