My poor Roo!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I noticed last week that Roo had a raised area on her forehead right above and between her eyes. . I wasn't sure if it's always been there and I just didn't notice it because her fur looks like it's thinning a bit (she's 16 yrs old and has over active thyroid).

Well it has really grown this past week and she is sneezing and her nose sometimes sounds stuffy. I am just so worried about her, with her age and her health problems that this lump is something serious
Please send all of the good vibes you can her way...she's my sweet old girl!

I have a vet appointment for her Monday morning.

Thanks!

It could be a loss of muscle mass in her forehead region, or it could be a flare up of the Herpes virus causing some swelling in the sinuses. Does the area feel warmer than the rest of her head? If so, it could be an abscess. Spot had one on his head after he came to live with me. We never were able to figure out what caused it (possible my other kitty wacked him or he could have had a cyst beneath the skin).

You might ask the vet about Lysine or Interferon. I had trouble getting Spot to take the Lysine, but the Interferon worked wonders with his sneezing. He used to sneeze so frequently that he would wake me up with his sneezing fits in the middle of the night.

Keeps us updated on Roo!

Nope, the temp of it feels the same as the rest of her head.

Forgot to mention before that the lump is hard and not movable unlike when Chuckie had a cyst from being scratched so I don't think it's that.

I'll let you know how it goes on Monday.

Please send all of the extra vibes you can to Roo, she just doesn't look good today at all When I pick her up I can feel a vibration in her legs. I don't know if it's pain or what...my poor girl

Are you heating her food a little? Sometimes that will entice kitties to eat, particularly if they are stuffed up. You can either microwave it for a few seconds or add hot water to her food (which might be even better because she gets more fluids that way).

Spot, Willow and I are sending good vibes for you and Roo.

She's been eating ok, not great but ok. I give her baby food meat along with her cat food and she likes the veal and lamb flavors. I do warm that up for her.

Thanks for the vibes everyone.
