Vibes for Maggie please!!!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Well my princess is spending the night at the vets office. I do feel good that she is there being monitored rather than just at home, but I wish we knew what was wrong with her. She spiked a fever last night 105, and still had it this morning. X-rays looked normal. The only thing in her blood values was that her liver values are a little elevated, but the vet felt that was a normal part of fighting off an infection. He feels those should come back down when she is better. So she is getting IV fluids to bring her temperature down, and IV flagly, and possiblity IV antibiotics. I'm very worried & I felt so bad leaving her there!! Please send lots of healing vibes for my baby girl.

Thanks guys. I'm really trying to hold it together. Being at work helps because then I have other things to distract me. I keep going back and forth between feeling she will be fine to thinking "What if it's FIP". I am trying very hard not to think the worst, but it is not easy. I just know that it is very strange to have a fever with no obvious origin.

Thank you, it does help to hear that it is not always the worst case scenerio. Her staying over night will be expensive, but I don't care as long as she gets better!

antibiotics in just a couple days.

Let us know how your Cat is. Meekos fever was almost 105 and she refused to eat even after getting a shot and antibiotics. She would just lay there and didnt want to be bothered. Does she have a Runny Nose? Meeko did a little bit and she was very hot. How old is your Cat. Meeko will be 8 in June.

Maggie will be 3 April 24th. She had no signs of an upper resperitory infection, no runny nose. She too felt very hot yesterday, that is how I knew she had a fever. I called the vets office and they have her on IV fluids. I will be getting a call from the vet later. I should know something more by then. I'm just trying to do deep breathing until I hear from the vet. Hopefully they will have her CBC results today.

I hope the results are good. Meekos Nose just ran a little but the fever was bad. Are the Meds helping her?

Just talked to the vet. Her fever has only come down to 104, so they now have the lines packed with ice bags. She still will not eat, so the vet suggested I bring in some of her food. I'm going to do that when I leave work. In addition she did have a stool, it was soft but not runny. So for now it is still a waiting game.

It is very hard to get them to eat with a fever. Even after Meeko was on the Meds for a few days she refused to eat or drink. I hope your Cat will start eating.

& for Maggie to get better! for you - it's so hard when our furbabies are ailing...

Agreed, mine would not eat until fever came down. I forced fed her
a little bit of canned into her and syringed water into her several times a day.
She rec'd two different shots at vets and meds twice a day for home.
After a couple days, the fever came down enough and she started eating
again. I tried making her a hamburg, opened tuna, gave her baked
chicken, - nothing worked. When they have a fever, they just wont
eat and vet stated that will certainly decrease any appetite.
I hope the meds will bring it down as it did for me along with water.

Let us know how you make out.

Sorry for the delay, but I spent the weekend relaxing. Maggie's fever came down to 103 on Friday but she still wouldn't eat. The vet felt that since she was out of danger and probably wouldn't eat while there I should take her home. She still would not eat, so I force fed her on Friday & Saturday. The fever was down just under 103 on Saturday. Then yesterday morning when I woke up she was a little more like her self and she was talking to me. Her fever was gone & she ate a little bit on her own. Then her temp went back up to 102.5 in the afternoon. It came back down and she ate a little dinner. This morning she was acting very hungry, but only ate a little dry food. So she is on her way to recovery, but it seems to be slow. Now Jordan has the runs again, and won't eat. Will this never end?
