|For being around six months old my kitty Riley has had quite a few medical issues. When we picked him up from the SPCA he only weighed a pound and he had worms, fleas, and an upper respiratory infection. In time the infection healed, the worms were gone, but the fleas were quite the battle. We tried flea sprays, dusting, Advantage, and many more products but nothing seemed to work. With him at the vet every few weeks for check ups didn’t help with the problem.
When we took him to get neutered on Monday the surgery went well but they found ringworms from him licking his fleas, a UTI infection, and then a virus attacked his system and now he has cysts in his mouth. The vets are still trying to piece together what he may have caught. They’re not sure if he licked something caustic or he caught something from being so weak after surgery.
With all his health problems my hopes in joining this forum are to pick up some tips and tricks on how to help Riley live happier and healthier, and to make some friends along the way!
