Help Feline Ailment

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a 4 year old Siamese cat (named Bosko) that has presented with seizures and excessive drooling after the seizure. The seizures started 8 days ago and have progressively gotten worse. Initially there were 1-3 seizures and progressed to as many as 70 in a day. The seizures last less than 10 seconds but he seems to be in alot of agony after the episode. The vet thinks that he may have meningitis but his blood work came back within normal limits. We are currently giving him Metronidazole 66mg twice a day (started today before we were giving him ClindaCure 2cc twice a day). Prednisolone 5mg twice a day. Phenobarbital 30mg twice a day (we increased that ourselves initially 7.5 mg twice a day suppose to stop seizure but he is still having one every 1.5 -2 hours) and Ketoconazole 50mg twice a day (antifungal haven’t given to him as of yet) also gave him 1 Ivermec syringe (Anti-parasitic). The vet has progressively increased the type and amount of meds to hopefully kill off whatever is making my cat ill. The vet started him on the antibiotics 3 days ago initially thought he was poisoned. He is eating and drinking and uses the litter like normal. Any advice on the type of ailment this might be and possible treatments.

I don't know where you are located, but it sounds like you need a feline specialist. www.meowhoo.com under health we have listed feline specialists, perhaps one is in your area? Either that or a vet school would be another bet- have your vet refer you to one if there is one close.

Is your cat behaing normally?. i.e still active, playing or is he playing more? The reason i ask is because one of my other cats had an overavtive thyroid gland. This caused him to start playing like he was a kitten again, but it also caused him to have regular seizures. The first vet we saw missdiagnosed it, as the thyroid gland is so hard to feel.
Hoping your kitty gets better. Sending you possitive vibes.

Thanks for your prayers and support. Bosko has been getting better each day. He is now only having 2-9 seizures a day and they are only lasting 1-3 seconds. The seizures are also not the full body ones he was having earlier in the week. I think one of the meds must be helping. I will keep everyone posted
