    Default Iris - chest infection and more UD she's gone

    I do know how to pick them.

    Ever since I adopted Iris, I've been trying to prove to vets that she's sneezy. Finally, I've got somewhere today. She didn't hide her illness on the vet table at P@H (She's from their adoption centre, was surrendered in with Arce, and is approx 4.5. They were surrendered allegedly spayed and because their prior owners were moving. )

    She has a chest infection. And an ulcer in her mouth, so she needs a dental. But she needs to kick this chest infection to the heel and put weight back on before she can go under. So she's on an oral abx and metacam for the next 2 weeks and gets a check up in 2 weeks with the same vet.

    The vet also shaved the bellies of both girls to check for spay scars. Arce's is low on her belly, but fairly prominent. The vet isn't convinced with Iris, which adds another complication.

    I hooe the abx is enough. If not we might have to move to injectibles, which I'm more than happy to do, but it is more of a trial for poor Deaf Iris.


    And on top of all that, there's the humans in shock because of the journey there, but that's a whole other post.

    Sending loads of vibes for Iris. I hope the abx work quickly for her. Poor girl with her mouth ulcer too Added to that the concern about whether she has had a spay or not

    How is she in herself? Is she still eating OK?

    She's ok in herself. Still eating, drinking, pooping and humping(!) as normal. Just gets annoyed at her sneezing. The ulcer took me by surprise as she's such a good eater, but equally she is a lop, so...

    I'm going to give her the abx and metacam nightly to give it a good routine. I wake at different times every day.

    Thanks for all the vibes - I'll keep everyone updated. x

    The abx is sulfatrim.

    I just did the first dose of sulfatrim and metacam. Of course she hated the abx, so when I tried to give her metacam, she ran away. I kept telling her it was the yummy one but it fell on deaf ears until it was in her mouth.
