UPDATE: I just got back from the vet. Mickey has Calici virus which casued a large ulcer on his tongue. He also has a fever of 103. He was given 110cc of fluids under the skin because he is not drinking because of the pain. He also has to take 3 meds. 1. Clavamox 2. Carafate (for healing of ulcer) 3. Buprenex Amps (for pain).
The vet said that he most likely got infected with the virus from our new kitty, Rupert. Rupert also infected our kitty Rhapsody and they BOTH now have diarreah and they have to take meds for a Protozoal (sp?) infection of their bowels.
Oh my gosh!!!!! I have spent sooooo much money since adopting Rupert just over a week ago!!! My husband is VERY stressed out because we don't have the money and are having to charge it. It is going to take me a while to pay off these bills. I hope they get better soon!!!!!!!
