Regular Vet Visit

Cat with allergies

Symptoms:

Took my cat was taken in to the vet in May to treat allergies, difficulty breathing (snoring sounds) and a head tilt. Eyes don’t look the same. One eye’s pupil is smaller. Was given an exam, anti inflammatory, antibiotic (convenia), vitamin b-12, ear drops, and an X-ray of lungs. Vet did not communicate with me about any of the issues. I’ve been a client for 5-6 years. Vet tech said she hoped cat didn’t have Horner’s syndrome. I didn’t know what it was or what to say. She said the “next step” would be seeing a specialist. I did not know what that meant either, as they had never said this to me. They were busy I had dropped off the cat between appts and came back to pick him up.

Diagnosis:

Diagnosed with asthma brought on by allergies. Lungs ok.

Treatment:

Administer ear drops twice daily.

Conclusion:

Three weeks later cat’s breathing seems better but still snoring sounds. Third eyelid appears and same eye seems sunken in, smaller than other eye. Called the vet for another appt. They would not see us. Recommended a specialist.

Pam, did Lucas ever find relief? Did the antibiotics help?
