This is Ruffy's mom. We called this afternoon to see if we could pick up Ruffy. Our vet didn't call us back til nearly 6pm. She had had an emergency case, and hadn't been able to.
Ruffy is doing better. She has him on an IV drip and pain meds. She said that his teeth were very bad. I asked her how this could happen in 2 weeks. She said that it probably was starting then, but in some cases with FIV and some cats, the teeth are percieved as 'alien' by the body which rejects them, and it could happen very fast.
Ruffy's lungs were filled with alot of 'gunk' and she stated we would discuss what we would do for him when we go over tomorrow, which is hopefully when he can come home. She stated she belives it's a combination of asthma and allergic bronchitis. She said that he was resting ok and she planned on taking him off the IV fluids tonight.
We thank you for all your prayers, purrs and kind support.
Debbie and James and Natalie the Natcat, Bella, Smokieboo, Ruffy and Princess.
