Hi All!

Our six year old Devon Rex desexed male has starting hissing at his sisters ever since one of them came home from a stay at the vets. He just goes up to Clawdia especially, opens up his jaw and lets a huge hiss rip, then walks off. This is so unlike him, and yet they will still sleep in our bed altogether, or snuggle up on the couch. Would it be possible that the vet clinic smell is on her, even though it has been a week? I am not lovin' this behaviour....

Does anyone have any ideas why this would be happening?

Also. does anyone have any ideas on how to get liquid antibiotics into little Clawdia in a way that doesn't make her froth and spit it all back up?

Thanks for reading,

I'd say it is definitely vet/medication smells.  As to getting the stuff down her, I can't help.  Our vets round the corner and I take Honey back every time if he's on meds, and they give it to her. :)
