I had asked in another thread about wet food that would put weight back on my kitty after he had surgery. This is going to be long but I want everyone to have all the information so maybe someone can help because two vets my kittys breeder and I can not figure out what is going on with him. Ok so here is goes. He is a 11 month old sphynx cat. I got him two months ago when I got him he had a ear infection that he was on ear drops for. The breeder and her vet said that after he finished the drops that he should be fine. Well he finished the drops a little over a month ago 4 days after he was off the drops the ear infection came back. I took him to my vet on 8/13/07 and he did a swab of his ear and tested it. It came back a type B bacterial infection He also had some congestion in his lungs. they put him on Amoxicillin, Erythomycin for his ear and Predisone and told me to bring him back in for a recheck in a week. on 8/20/07 was his recheck his ear had not gotten any better but his congestion had so they changed him to ciprofloxacin and Tresaderm and more prednisone. He was to go back for another recheck in a week. On 8/27/07 He went back for his recheck his congestion was completely cleared up but his ear was still no better. The vet looked in his ear really good and said he saw something in there and he needed to have surgery to have it removed. He had his surgery on 9/4/07 They said he done really good durning his surgery on his ear and they removed a large polyp from his ear. He came home and was eating and drinking and going to his litter box. Two days after his surgery on 9/6/07 I had to take him back to the vet because his ear had swollen and I was afraid it was getting infected. The vet said he did not think it was infected but put him on Amoxicillin for a percausion but I still believe it was infected because it took it two days to swell like that and it was the size of if you would have taken a golf ball and cut it in half and put it to his other ear it would have matched. this past friday night he cut back on his eating but was still eating ok. Well Sunday at lunch time he only ate a few bites Sunday night he quit eating. I took him back to the vet today and they said his kindeys are enlarged They ran a blood panel on him and every thing came back ok. This is what has us all confussed is why is his kindeys enlarged but his blood work in comeing back fine. He has no fever but will not eat I am haveing to force feed him he also got sub q fluides today and a depo-medrol shot to try and get him to eat. He is peeing and it looks normal I will be takeing him back to the vet in the morning to see what we will do next. His ear is not swollen any more and is healing good. I spoke to his breeder on the phone and told her what was going on and she called her vet and he also dont know what could be going on for his kindeys to be enlarged and nothing show up on the blood work. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be going on with him. And could you please keep him in your prayers this little guy sure could use them His name is Slash The breeder named him that and we keep it Slash because when he was born his mom picked him up to move him and slashed him on both sides on one side he needed one stich and on the other he needed three so with him being hairless you can see his scares so his name fits him well.
