At CRVS 6/3-5/2017 for emergency care
On thyroid meds for life; stable
Prescription food for sensitive stomach
Chloe came to us along with her housemate Millie. Their mom became ill and went into hospice care. Her two daughters contacted FF about taking the cats. The cats had been alone in the home for a few weeks with limited human attention. Millie is younger and has no medical issues.
We feel that during this time Chloe was over looked and it was not recognized by the caregivers that she was becoming sicker and sicker.
Chloe is about 15 years old. She had an ultra sound done on 6-5-17 which showed she has enlarged lymph nodes and intestinal thickening which could point to IBD or lymphoma. We chose to treat with Prednisone which will help either problem. We didn’t pursue more testing because of her age and the invasiveness of the procedure. She was also presented to us anorexic. Her blood work shows that she has hyperthyroidism. She also had pancreatitis which has been treated with meds. We will recheck her blood work to make sure it has cleared up when we retest her thyroid.
Chloe receives Prednisolone 0.8ml which is a liquid drawn up in a syringe every 12 hours. She also receives Methimazone 0.1ml applied as a cream to the hairless portion of inner ear every 12 hrs, alternating between the R ear and L ear. Chloe is also on a prescription dry food for digestion.
Chloe is a sweetheart and loves for you to hold and talk to her. No problems with using the litter box. She is very easy to care for.
Chloe is in a permanent foster home.
