Oscar's adventures in antibodies

(viewed 1681 times)
Bookmark and Share
Posted an old pic because he is not looking his best this evening.
Today was x ray & investigation day, nearly 8 hrs in hospital, general anaesthesia, etc. His cruciate ligament is the problem. Fine, super, we'll be careful. His conjunctivitis wasn't quite clear so he got some different medication. Around 18.30 we tried the new meds. Around 21.45 we got home from the emergency vet clinic.

He's had an allergic reaction to one of the world's safest & most commonly prescribed veterinary antibiotics. Of course he has.

He was in such pain, all I could think to do at first was to try washing out his eyes. Then I put on some motorcyle kit & tried again with rather more success.
He's not allowed to be rambunctious nor giddy for at least another week, though how they imagine I'm to enforce that I don't know. If I shut him in a room, he throws himself at the door handle until he's got it open, which is no help at all. Can't keep him crated all day.
I shall tell him of your good wishes...

poor oscar, and poor you, even motorcycle gear is no great protection against a determined there a cat nip preparation that would help him feel 'mellow'?

So much pain for him and you. Which antibiotic did he react to? Hope he'll get back to new adventures very soon

Much better today. Still a little more sore round the eyes than he was before the aureomycin but not the scary beast he was last night.

P - don't fret, my jacket has armour on armour; letting him bite down on an arm only helped to stabilise the poor blind, bloodlusting little varmint while I washed out his eyes.

Poor Oscar. I didn't even know cats could get conjunctivitis.

No rambunctiousness, nor even a touch of giddy? I don't know how you'll enforce that either.

The only way to calm him at all is to cuddle him but once he's determined on giddiness, not even the comfiest lap will hold him.
Conjunctivitis v common in cats, as is ocular herpes.
