|My kitty Ozzie was taken to the vet last weekend for some hacking that was not resolving itself. During the physical exam, the vet noticed he had a really irritated throat. She said it could be allergies, but if the hacking doesn't improve with steriods he has to go in and get scoped to check things out. He was given a short acting steriod injection, which stopped the hacking, so he recently was prescribed a short course of steroids.
Yesterday, I noticed Ozzie eyes more watery than normal. I noticed a little pus on his fur near the eye. No visible goop coming out of his eye though. He was also licking his nose a lot yesterday. His hacking has stopped due to the steroids, but I can hear a crackling noise in his throat. Ozzie is eating and all that normal business, but to me he's acting slightly off. He normally is a purr monster, but last night he was in bed with me and he wasn't purring.
It's my first time having to give my cat meds so I called the vet and explained what is going on with him. She told me to bring him in, in case he has a URI or something.
Am I overreacting?
