Milita's Monday

Milita sitting on the couch
Hi everyone, it's Milita this week!

Thank you so much to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday last week!

Last week, the Mom made me go see Dr. Stabby.  Of course, I was not pleased!

Dr. Stabby took an x-ray of me and told the Mom that my lungs look clear now.  So....that means no more vet trips, right?!

But alas...Dr. Stabby gave me a listen and said she still hears congestion when I breathe.  She says it is now an upper respiratory infection.  The Mom says it is wonderful news that my lungs have cleared out, but if it were all that wonderful, then why did they insist on giving me more antibiotics?

Dr. Stabby gave me something called Clindacure for my upper respiratory infection.  It isn't as bad as that awful pink stuff (Clavamox), but I still don't like it.  I spend a lot of time hiding under the bed in hopes that the Mom won't find me to give me my medicine.  I still have to take that yucky Prednisolone, too.

The Mom says that I am "almost done" with my medication.  Where have I heard that before?

The Mom here: Milita will finish this course of antibiotics and continue to take Prednisolone until she goes back to the vet next Tuesday.  At that point, we will reassess her and see how she's doing.  If she is doing better and is no longer congested, we will likely wean her off the Prednisolone to see how she does.  

I hope we are finally at the tail end of this infection.  It has been a long fight for poor Lita.  Thank you for all the purrs and prayers you have been sending Lita's way.  We really appreciate them and know they are helping her heal.
