Poor Little Kitty

February 2nd, 2015 at 02:43 pm

Well the cat went back to the vet. Poor guy.

They are worried it is NOT an ear infection now, since he's not responding to antibiotics. They are starting to think brain tumor, cancer, stroke, swelling on the brain, etc. Frown

They tested him for feline leukemia, and he was negative. But that doesn't mean he doesn't have a tumor.

Three vets looked at him, and they are all just at a loss. They gave me one of the strongest antibiotics on the market and said if this doesn't cure him, then it's not an ear infection. It's kind of scary. There are a ton of side effects and warnings, and it even says use extreme caution on the box.

The plan at this time is to keep giving him a low dose steroid when he regresses, until it stops being effective. The problem is that it took over 12 hours for it to kick in this time, whereas the other times there was improvement after only an hour or two. So I'm worried that it is already not working as well as it was.

If I want to take him for an MRI, or X-Rays, then they will have to refer me to a specialist, which is over 1.5 hours away, and will cost a small fortune. Not sure if I can swing that, or if it would even give us answers.

My poor little baby. I love him so much. Thankfully when he is regressing it is not as bad as it originally was, so I'm really hoping he will slowly improve and get better. He is still happy, snuggly, and purring. He just has bad balance. It might just be something he lives with long term, unfortunately.
