Well Fred started having seizures 3 hours after his vet visit, we're
not sure what is causing those but he is on phenobarbitol and those so
far are controlled. He is eating like a little piggy and drinking. It
takes about 2 weeks for them to get used to the effects of the
phenobarbitol so he is pretty much out of it most of the day. His legs
aren't working right now even though he does try to get up and can walk
a step or 2 before he loses his balance.
The blood work results show that there is possibly cancer, if so I would
guess a brain tumor but the vet said it also could be from a severe
inner ear infection, which he does have an inner ear infection, he was
on drops only so I asked for the pills too, asked a week ago when we
diagnosed him but the vet I saw then said it wasn't that bad and he
didn't need them, they were obviously wrong and it has probably gotten
worse again. I'm going to tell my vet I want to keep him on the baytril
for wahtever time he has left, this is the 5th time an infection has
come back because the vet wouldn't listen to me. He had an infection
years ago that he kept getting back because they wouldn't leave him on
the antibiotics longer like I requested. Fred has a really bad time
clearing infections and they really kick his butt so I have to be more
forceful about that.
I know someone who's cat was on baytril for 8 years and she did fine.
Would appreciate prayers for Fred to get over this latest hurdle ... and
yes I have told him if he is ready to go I am fine with that, he has my
blessing, but he keeps hanging on, he is one tough cookie!!
happiness is being owned by cats ...
