My poor old cat is poorly

My dear old cat Boydle had a trip to the vet today. He was coughing last night like he was going to be sick so I picked him up to comfort him and his wee chest was really rattly sounding so I though he had a chest infection. John took him to the vet on the way to work this morning and they kept him for the day. He has an infection in his jaw and the yuck draining down his throat was making him cough and be sick and the vet thinks that accounted for his rattly chest as well. He's on AB's and may need surgery to remove a couple of teeth which is a real worry as he has a heart murmur.

That's hard kats. Still if the Vet is prepared to do the op and God Forbid he doesn't make it, you will know you were doing what you had to do for him. I will have my fingers and toes crossed that the AB's work. I expect the Vet will be too!

Oh dear :(

Purrs to you.

I can personally vouch for gunk running down the back of your throat making you feel crappy, so hopefully once that is resolved (and the teeth safely dealt too) he'll be a new cat. Or back to his old self. Or his new old self. Well, you know what I mean!

Kate - I am not leaving you out in my best wishes for Max. I think I have been on here long enough for you to know that I support whatever anyone choses for their animal and am there to offer my heartfelt sympathies when the time comes. I wish for life in the first instance as I do for Max. I will be there with a genuine heart when you make a decision that the time has come and hopefully that will be when you and he are ready. It makes a difference. Hugs.

Well today he is no better but no worse either. I know the AB's will take a while to work. Not a lot elso I can do for him really apart from keep him comfy and let him rest.

TKP, the antibiotics should only take around 3 days to kick in but you will need to finish the whole course.....

Thanks for all the good wishes for Max, he's old, blind, deaf, toothless and I think is going senile. Apart from that, the vet thinks he's great for his age and he's not in distress :D He enjoys eating, sleeping and lap sitting. I don't think he'll be like this for long and as Sue referred to in another post I don't want his death to be a result of a medical emergency. He's had a great life and I love him more than I can say but I think we have to make a decision soon about his future.......or lack of it :(

TKP - how is Boydle today?

Cheers
Kate
