Despite being pronounced healthy 10 days ago at her annual exam/ vaccination, I have been concerned about Persil the last few days. Her fur didn't lie properly, she seemed lethargic and then yesterday she wouldn't eat. This morning she only wanted to lie in the warm, and I had great difficulty in getting her out from behind my desk where she was tucked up under the radiator. So it was off to the vet, who confirmed that she had a fever and probably a UTI. So two antibiotic injections for her and a few scratches for me, and we are home with 8 days of medication. She slept for an hour and then got up and actually ate something, if not a full meal. Hopefully the problem will be resolved quickly and meanwhile we would appreciate your thoughts and vibes. Persil is such a special girl, and because of her medical history I am extra concerned about any infections that may increase her breathing or pulse rate, which are both higher than they should be right now.
