[Felvtalk] What could it be?

2012-04-28 Thread molveywda
I have a FeLV kitten that I'm fostering. She's six or seven months old. She's the one I emailed about a couple months ago with uveitis. The uveitis never has completely cleared up. But now I'm not sure what's going on. Her back legs are kind of wobbly. It's not bad enough that my husband

Maureen, She could be a CH Kitty..."Cerebellar Hypoplasia" this can happen in both cats and dogs at a young age. Some are born with it. It is a Brain Neuro issue. It can affect anykitty whether they are FELV or not. I have 2 kitties that have this as they are Siamese. One is about 6-7 months old

I've never heard of CH, thanks for the info. Diabetes is not good even though it's treatable. I do hope that you get more blood work done even though you stated the bloodwork was okay a couple of months ago. Have you noticed an increase in fluids or urination? Keep us posted, I will be thinking

Hi all, Thanks to everyone who responded last week. Your advice means a lot to me, as do your kind words of support. Most of my friends here are not pet owners, so hearing from folks who have been through the same thing makes me feel way less alone. So again, thank you. At our last vet

I don't like the sound of this. What happened? Did the kittens die shortly after they lost use of their back legs? Did you ever find out what causes it? I've been telling myself that she'll probably die young and not to be surprised if it happens before she's a year old but I can't help

Not sure about CH because she has just now gotten wobbly like this. She hasn't always been this unsteady on her feet. I haven't watched the video yet though. I wish it was just CH because they say that doesn't progress any further. “I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces

She's not really walking on her hocks like they say diabetics do. I haven't noticed a lot of drinking either. But I'll definitely have that checked out just in case. The bloodword that was done wasn't sent out to the lab. It was just the real basic stuff like in the vet's office so I don't

Oh - we went to see the opthalmologist about her uveitis. He gave her azithromycin (sp?) and two kinds of eye drops. It was prednisolone and neomycin eye drops. It still hasn't gone away. He said it could be anything, especially since she has FeLV, but the treatment was the same so we

I have an FeLV kitty that out of the blue one day couldn't stand up.  She leaned and fell to the right.  If I leaned her up against an ottoman, she could walk in a circle clock-wise, but if she moved away from the ottoman, she fell down.  The veterinarian had no idea what it was, and attributed
