For those of you who have not been reading my blog posts for the past 4 months, my cat Callie has been going through a health crisis with a chronic cough she couldn’t shake! She has been on antibiotics on and off since the start of the cough and always relapses after she finishes a series.
Today we took her back to the Coast Vet Clinic in Morro Bay and she spent the whole day there going through different tests and X-rays and the final diagnosis is chronic bronchitis. Antibiotics are only half of the solution. She needs to go on steroids too.
She was discharged and tomorrow we pick up a steroid that has been modified to be rubbed in the ear and an antibiotic that will be pulverized into a tasty chicken broth. It is about time! Poor Callie has really suffered having disgusting medications shoved down her throat and then having them only work for a week at a time. I am really holding out a positive attitude that she is finally going to get well. When I picked her up at the end of the day, she sure was happy to see me and walked out of the office with a spring in her step and joy in her heart!
We are going to try and go as far as Canada and I now have all of her paperwork in order! Canada, here we come…. but first, Oregon and Washington!
