I am really worried about Ellie. As you know, all four cats have been treated for ringworm for about three weeks now, and the others seem much better. But Ellie has been steadily getting worse, despite the shampoos, creams and tablets so far prescribed. And she is so obviously miserable. I took her back to the new vet on Monday this week, and the vet gave me some stress relieving capsules for her and more Lamisil cream. I also asked about her thinness, but the vet thought she was within the bounds of normality, even though I know she has lost weight. She eats and poops fine, though I think she is drinking more than usual. If she were older ( she is three this summer) I would think hyperthyroidism, but I mentioned that and the vet said no. This morning I examined her carefully and she is covered with scabby skin and what looks like dandruff, even where there is no ringworm. I shampooed her again, which she absolutely hates and now she is on top of a wardrobe, wet and shivering, and drooling up a storm. I will get her back to the vet tomorrow, but meanwhile I feel so sorry for her and don't know how to help her.
