Health issues

FCKS page updated

I am attempting to keep my FCKS information updated now by using the Wikipedia article, as my web pages about the subject became very large and unwieldy! However there are important references in my pages to anecdotal treatments that would not be appropriate in the wiki article. Please do read the Wikipedia article if you are interested in this subject.

New health information

New page added to the Health Section about ‘Malnourished Kitten Syndrome’;
New information added to the FCKS pages about suckling and causes of flat-chests.

Taurine and FCKS

A short piece of information has been added to the FCKS health page regarding the use of Taurine supplementation to treat flat-chested kittens. The mother, not the kitten, was supplemented, and the breeder has reported complete recovery with her litters, both with numbers of kittens affected, and single kittens. Please read the full information before proceeding with any treatment, and make sure you do this in consultation with your vet.
