    There is nothing Fishy about our Salmon other than the fact he loves his grub and is partial to a fish supper. This fella has been on quite the migration like his fishy name sakes and makes a great companion. He is a very chatty boy who likes to hang out and soak up some fuss. He will perch on your lap and has a cracking purr to go with his ruggish good looks. He would probably prefer an all-adult home, as he can get a bit nippy if he is frustrated or gets a bit carried away so will need a confident human to help him on his path up-river. So, if you’re all about upgrading your Fish & Chips, keep reading to see if you could be his purr-fect match and give him the fur-ever home he deserves…

    Other Notes

    Salmon has been behaviourally assessed and given preventative treatment at Mayhew in the form of microchipping, vaccinations and flea and worming treatment. He was neutered before coming in to our care in Mid April and was a local stray doing the rounds just a few streets away from Mayhew. On arrival we discovered that Salmon had some itchy, scabby skin and he was not looking at his best. We have done tests and found he has a hypersensitivity reaction to something which left untreated resulted in his appearance and discomfort on arrival. This is currently managed with steroid tablets (Prednisolone) once a day which he eats well in his food and a special mousse (DermalEase) we apply to his skin every couple of days that he enjoys. He should maintain regular flea and worming treatment as he had lots of fleas when he arrived which could have been a major contributing factor to his skin issues and now he is having treatment his coat and appearance are vastly improved. He has also had some cat flu symptoms that were treated with meds and have since resolved and was also been diagnosed with a heart murmur graded 1-3/6. Both this and any flu symptoms should be monitored but require no additional treatment at present. Lastly, when he had some blood tests it showed some non-regenerative anaemia, this has improved when secondary tests were performed and could have been another direct result to his itchy and sore skin when he arrived, this should be monitored to make sure it returns back to normal levels.
