Holmes hasn't been eating much. So today, along with her fluids and vitamins, and antibiotics she got the deluxe examination from the vet herself. This woman has known Holmes since she was a kitten. I/we have faith in this vet.
Today, after the examination, Holmes got some Regalin, to settle her stomach. She has developed another problem that you would never believe in an 18 year old cat, tonsillitis. She now goes onto a 3 week course of Baytril (an antibiotic) and prednizone (a steroid) for the tonsillitis. They do NOT operate on 18 year old cats for tonsillitis. Not no way. This is going to be fun.
Her weight is down to 4 3/4 pounds. She needs to start eating soon.
Here's the current FDA Pet Food recall information. There was a recall this weekend.
If you could use something calming and peaceful, go see Echomouse's Otter Post, and leave Carrie a hug while you're there!
