|I just saw this thread today. Sometimes it’s not good to go bouncing from vet to vet. If the vet is AVMA accredited (must be to work in this country), then you are likely to get the same diagnosis. I’ve had my fair share of worried kitty mommies and daddies to deal with and honestly sometimes nothing is wrong. I’m glad you got a chest x-ray done just to be cautious. But, if it is clear, then you can be pretty sure that your cat is okay. Convenia is actually very safe. The worst side effect I’ve ever seen from it was diarrhea. One dose of cortisone will not worsen a heart condition. You might want to go ahead and get an ECG just to be sure he doesn’t have a heart condition, but if his physical exam and x-ray didn’t show anything, it is unlikely. We often use Convenia to treat skin infections in dogs and cats. As long as the animal isn’t allergic to cefovecin, then it is safe to give. Honestly, I think you might be more worried than you need to be. I’m not a veterinarian, but a registered veterinary technician and I can tell you that you shouldn’t be worried. Unless your cat starts panting, then I think things are okay.
