Corkscrew went to the vet today

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Poor Corkscrew didn't have a good day today. He's been sneezing the last few days and has been really congested. This morning he was hiding under the bed since he wasn't feeling very well, I tried to get him out but he refused to come out. So I had to move the bed and grab him and put him in the carrier. He didn't have too much fun at the vet, however he did seem to enjoy that they now have ear thermometers and they didn't have to stick anything up his bum. He weighs 13 lbs now! But anyways, the vet said it would be hard to tell if it's an infection or allergies without running tests on him. He recommened treating him for both and then if he doesn't get better we will run tests on him. They gave him an antibiotic shot and sent me home with some amoxil, a vetalog pill and NeoPolybac for his eyes since they were really swollen. On the way home he peed in the carrier, so when we got home I had to clean him off and he was really upset about that, he hissed at me. It's been a couple of hours since we went to the vet and he seems to be breathing much easier, so hopefully he will have a quick recovery.

I hope Corkscrew feels better soon!

My kitty Georgia went to the vet Monday with similar symptoms and they have been completely alleviated by an antibiotic shot and Clavamox drops.

I hope the same happens for Corkscrew!

Yay! He's looking better today! I'm so excited, the last time he had a URI it look him about a month before he got over it. So I'm so happy that he's starting to look like he's getting better now.

LOL yes, usually when he starts attacking me and stops letting me pet him I know he is feeling 100% better.

LOL! That's the way it used to work around here too. But apparently now that they're getting older, they seem to like the affection a bit more - even when they're well. Glad he's feeling better, and get lots of scritches in while you can. Sending GET WELL vibes Corkscrew's way!!!! (And I still LOVE that name!)
