Fiona saw the vet today for her post op check-up. The lesions are less red and swollen but they are still there. In 2 weeks we need to start brushing her teeth and do the mouth rinse. That should be fun! The vet thought she heard a slight heart murmur, yes, a heart murmur. She will check for it again when Fiona goes back in 6 weeks. Her meds run out in 6 weeks and she is hoping that the meds will work or lessen the inflamation.
Fiona can't take meds for the rest of her life. We have to try the 2 month meds treatment first before we tackle having her teeth extracted. At least now we have Fund money to pay for a chunk of that when the time comes. If she has a heart murmur that's other ball game. 2 cats with heart murmurs who need special care and one with serious dental problems. Oh boy! If it were not for the generous friends at the CB I don't know what we would have done. One thing at a time right now. Spot is still on his special meds until Sunday. We have not heard him cough or sneeze so we are hopeful that this round of special meds did the trick. If not, then he needs to go to the heart specialist. I will say it again...Oh Boy!
Ps...We are still experiencing computer problems. I am hoping to get my laptop back this weekend so we can get back to visting all of our friends.
