Yep, I found out today that my Samantha who is about 8 is considered "Middle aged" I laughed so hard when the vet told me!! It's true, Levi who is about 6mo. is getting better, I don't know if it is because of the antibiotics or not, but the vet doesn't want me to stop them, of course.
Samantha, however has a 105 fever, lethargic, won't eat or drink and has required more intervention to try to start her getting better.
She has NEVER been sick in her WHOLE life, and today to be THIS sick was really hard on us. Poor kitty, these URI's are no joke. If we had not gotten her in for tx for the fever mainly, the vet said she could have not made it...
WOW... a cold..
