As some of my furry friends know I have breathing problems, Mom has been at her wits end to find a Vet that could find outhat is wrong with me...
Mom found a new Vet she had already taken my sisfur Queen Tallulah because of her Cancer and Mom was really happy with her, she loves cats and was so gentle with our little Tallulah....
So this morning, Mom was trying to be sneakie grapping my harness, but I saw what she grapped my harness & carrier, yah you know what
I did I immediatly made a mad dash to hide from Mom....I didn't get far she was right on top of me, she grabed me and on to the bed I went. Now I know I am in trouble no good comes with Mom putting on the harness inside the house and into the carrier I went...you see I don't like to be confined because I was rescued from the side of the road in some kind of container so now I am always scared to go into one, I was so scared I peed a little....I do that every time
Now Mom is putting me in the car and buckled in and off we go... the Vet isn't near us Mom has to drive about 10 miles to get there, so the whole time I MOL MOL & MOL....trying to tell me Mom I want out of here Mom please let me out....but NOOOOO she didn't get me out....
I go into the Vet office and we wait...Mom is talking to a lady about my records and Tallulah's making sure they got our records from our last Vet....& Tallulah's cancer treatment records.
OH OH I hear my name being called, not good....we go into a room the door is shut and there is a lady there, she asks Mom to get me out so she can weigh me and take my temp...she was trying to get my temp in the ear but the devise didn't work so you guessed it, the behind temp...it was OK and she was asking Mom questions about me and my breathing...
Mom is holding me and giving me love and telling me I will be OK and my new Vet will get to the bottom of what is wrong with me finally....
My new Vet her name is Kathy she is a very nice Vet and she loves kitties she was so gentle with me, Tallulah told me I would like her and don't tell Mom but I do.
After she talked to Mom, felt my body, listened to my heart which is in good shape, she said it could be several things....
chronic Herpes virus Infection (highl likely)
Inflammatory conditions such as Lymphocytic, plasmacytic rhinitis/sinusistis
a mass or a polyp in my nasal cavity (less likely)
odd resistant bacterical infection
allot of stuff to check for: my Vet said they will start with a chest xray and blood work, so out came the vampire to get my blood again oh no you don't, oh yes we are, it is for your own good....and then they laid me on a table and took my xray...
I am on new medication for now called clindamycin, I have to take it 2 times a day, yah here we go again, Mom has to grab me, hold me and get that nasty tasting stuff in me...wonder how much will end up on Mom...MOL...
So I am finally home and I might say I am so happy too. Mom left and I settled down for my morning nap.....
This was my day at the Vet today and Mom said I will probably have to go back to a specialist to have a final diagnosis it will require endoscopic biopsy from my nose, they will have to sadate me to do that and Mom is worried, but my Vet said I won't be out for long...
We sure hope all of this will bring an answer to my puzzling breathing problems that have plegged me for a long time.
Wow Zeke! What a day! *hugs* Hope that your breathing problems don't turn out to be anything too serious!
~purrs & prayers for you, cutie~
Thank you Muppet for your purrs & prayers...Mom wants me to be OK and not breath funny, sneeze and cough all the time, she has enough to worry about with Tallulah...Once they figure out what is wrong I will be on medication probably the rest of my life....Mom was worried that whatever it is I could make Tallulah sick because her immune system is down with her having cancer and in chemo treatment, so Mom took me today, she was going to wait til Tallulah was done with her treatments...we should know hopefully soon. We will let you know as soon as we know.
Hi My Dearest Friend:
Zeke, you are going to be okay, you are healthy and everything is going to be all right. We have you and Lulu in our prayers every night (even Sunday's) so don't worry. And Dr. Kathy sounds like I would even love her. I'll write you over the week-end my bestest furfriend.
thank you for purring and praying, I know I am going to be OK now because my Vet kathy is going to help for once and for all...she said that this has been going on for 18 months now and now of the other Vets would get to the bottom of this, just give me antibiotics and send me home...Now I have someone on my side and it is just a matter of eliminated what I don't have....it will be a while before we know for sure, but Mom and Dr. Kathy will be working together to help me....I just don't like the nasty medicine and Mom says I have to take it 2 times a day....you are my bestest furfriend too. thanks for caring and being my furfriend.
