Kalis been back to the vets and had three injections but
they dont seem to be having any effect. Shes still very
uncomfortable, especially in the evenings, and her twitching foot
problems are more pronounced.
She went back to the vets yesterday evening and the lab results
on her dropping were in. Shes clear of worms and salmonella
but she does have an infection. The results showed that it was resistant
to the Tribrissen antibiotic so the vet has changed it to Baytril.
Hopefully this will now start to make her feel better. This time
the vet crushed her down with a towel inside her travel
box and injected her into her haunch.
Id managed to collect a urine sample from her the previous
evening. Shes weed while she was out onto the laminate
floor so I was able to scoop it up with an old credit card and collect
it in an old contact lens case. The vet will get this analysed too.
If the new antibiotic doesnt help were going to have
to take a blood sample from her. This will involve gassing her.
I had a huge shock when I got her home and let her back into her
house. She couldnt use her right back leg at all. It was dragging
behind her. This was the same side that she had the injection in.
I immediately rang the vet. He assured me that it was a temporary
reaction to the injection and sure enough she was OK a few hours
later. Ill get her out for playtime tomorrow evening and see
if she is any better.
