...and the cat came back

Deuce is home!

We picked him up this evening and he's improved a lot. He's on two kinds of medication, one is Famotidine, or more commonly known as Pepcid (yes the same Pepcid as you see in the commercials). The other medication is Tylosin, which is basically an antibiotic.

We spoke to the doctor and he told us that he's not sure what made Deuce sick. Yes, we spent over $350 to find out that they don't know what it was. He said that if it was the food or the vaccines that he would have reacted within a day or two. He got sick almost a week after both were done. It could be just "one of those things". Hopefully he doesn't have a repeat of any symptoms.

When we brought him home, he literally ran out of his cage and over to his food bowl. I think he was upset because there wasn't any food IN it. He sat patiently and mewed until I went to the kitchen and gave him some. He seems to be back to normal, YAY!

We officially cancelled his dentistry appointment for Friday (the vet took his mystical magical eraser and wiped Deuce's name off the schedule). We had told the vet he saw on Sunday morning that she should cancel the appointment for us. It must have taken a lot out of her to do it, because it still wasn't done when we picked him up.

We're still dropping Deuce off on Friday evening for boarding for the weekend. We're heading into Buffalo on Saturday morning to spend the day with Nicole and Tim. I can't wait!

Glad to hear Deuce is doing well. Hopefully it was just some bug that won't come back.

Sorry to hear that your furbaby wasn't well, hoping for better days ahead. I wonder if they get the flu!?
