    Praying Bifi feels better soon, did they prescribe antibiotics?
    Ouch that must have hurt! My dad and his brothers have abcessed somewhere in their body and it sometimes need operation.

    Infection-That's what the vet said after taking Bifi's temperature that there's an infection somewhere but where and what the cause is unknown. He gave Bifi an antibiotic shot good till saturday and tablets for sunday. could an elongated palate generate a sudden infection out of the blue?

    Yes breathe, pale gums means something with his blood flow. Is he responsive?

    I'm just reading this now...okay, deep breath for you, @dieMuttivonBifi. Since the vet gave him the antibiotic shot I am hopeful this will help him a lot since infection is suspected. You are watching him closely which is a positive and I know how worried you are but as long as Bifi is eating, drinking okay, allow the medication to do its work. I'm praying that the little guy will only get better every day.

    Default Allergic to cat?

    I haven't really had a chance to read through all of the posts but im sure you got some great tips up there

    My frenchton happens to be severely allergic to cats (we had test done) and guess what we have - a 14 year old cat that we can not part with.

    The cat is my husband's from his first marriage and he had given him away when he was deployed to his aunt. When my husband came back from his deployment, we got our frenchton. Due to some unfortunate events my husband's aunt couldn't keep the cat anymore so we took him back.

    Sully seem to be fine for a while and then he started breaking out into hives, losing fur, getting ear infections (he has huge upright ears so it was all allergy related), runny nose and was just itchy. We took him to the vet and we honestly thought it was some type of seasonal allergy. 3 years later his allergies were on and off, so again we thought it was just seasonal allergies.

    Then we moved to Cali and he lost almost all his fur. So that's when I took him to a dermatologist and got tests done. Turns out all this time he was allergic to the cat (I never thought that was possible). Turns out that the previous tenant also had cats and our landlord never changed the carpeting so it triggered a really bad reaction with his allergies. Hives, skin infections, extreme fur lose, watery eyes, ear infections. But even with all this he never had a cough or a fever, so I want to say I doubt it is an allergy to the cat.

    Good luck with everything! Prayers

    @cali baker Thank you very much for the kind words.


    @nubonics Thank you!!! It's very comforting to know that the cat is not the cause of all this.

    Hey Phil Thank you for asking . No fever, so that's good. He still coughs though not as severe as yesterday. His nose is runny and would sneeze greeny mucous . But his spirit is up, he wants to play and is hungry. and he didn't throw up his dinner last night and no puking today either (knock on wood). Hope the shot he got yesterda is really working and not just band-aiding what he has.

    Thank you very much again. means so much that people here care!
