Has anyone had experience with hepatitis? I do not yet know which kind, and don't know that they do..FNA determined it was hepatitis but I am third party on this kitty (long story and was involved in her "rescue" but she was adopted out by someone at my vet and now is very sick) so don't have much info, I know they did a culture but are awaiting results. She's having days where she's looking better and also really bad days and my friend is thinking of letting her go as she doesn't want to make her suffer through endless treatment (and she is experienced with treating hepatic lipidosis and such).
I've read about bacterial hepatitis and triaditis where they have hepatitis/pancreaitis/IBD and don't know if she falls into one of these categories. I do know she is vommiting bile. This is a dear kitty who is not very old. She was dumped at my vet's office door pregnant and tested a light FIV+. They couldn't find a home and were going to euthanize her so I took over her charges and boarded her but also couldn't find a home despite the fact she then tested negative including on the Western Blot test. She was doing well in her home and last seen at my vet about 6 months ago and now very sick, very jaundiced. At first her renal numbers & glucose were also elevated but those have normalized I believe and they do not feel she is diabetic. It seems the adopter got a new roommate with another cat and a dog and wasn't paying attention to her...at all, it is very sad. Skittles is a sweet, beautiful dilute torti and probably only 3 or so years old. If anyone has suggestions for questions to ask please let me know, and keep her in your prayers. Thank you! I apologize for the patchiness of this message but I am overwhelmed with cat issues/colonies and up late but definitely not of full capacity here, and, not well informed on her case and BW. I will try to find out more specifics. The tech who is charged with her care pretty much saved 13 year old HL kitty with a multitude of problems who, along with his sister, witnessed their young dad die of a heart attack and were home mostly alone for weeks. Both had a host of health problems and she nursed him back to health, so, if she is considering Skittles might be too bad off....it is very worrisome.
