Poor Kitty

January 12th, 2015 at 04:39 pm

My poor cat that was very sick on Christmas Eve regressed and was right back to where he started. Circles and circles, no balance, meowing, hissing, couldn't stand, etc.

So he went back to the vet this morning. They gave him more steroids and a long lasting injection antibiotic instead of the oral meds. I have another shot to give him in a week.

My poor little baby. I am very fortunate that the vet is very nice and reasonable. The injection was $47 but they didn't charge me for office visit. So including the steroid injection the visit only cost me $57, Whew.

They said this might be a chronic issue and that he may have to get steroid shots on a normal basis. Praying that isn't the case, and that this time the stronger meds clear it up for good!

In other news, I believe I am getting paid on the 15th. So that is a welcome surprise. I will use that money to pay down the credit card, pay excess bills, put some in the EF, and hopefully a little to the LOC.

    Clindamycin is useful for deep tissue infections. Works better than anything else for teeth and bone infections. The ear canal of the cat is very small, and cats are prone to these issues. Sometimes it can take three weeks of treatment or longer to stop the infection.

    I hope kitty feels better soon!
