Kelly, I'm alsp very concerned about this cat. She should have gotten her meds right away, and I also believe a vet who has been practicing for that long may not be up on current treatments. All physicians and vets have to continue to read, and learn about new treatments for as long as they are in practice. Some do and others don't. They just stick with whatever they learned in vet school or med school.
