Well, it's worse. It's my cat, and at 15, she's my kid, my sis, and one of my best friends at once rolled into an adorable, frighteningly smart and arrogant Tonkenese package. Am I pussy-whipped? Heck, yeah!
Well, and there's my problem. She's been mistreated by her former vet to a point of congestive heart failure and deep-seated pneumonia. I blame myself for not catching the signs in time, but what point is there to bitch about it now?
She is now completely OK as far as heart is concerned -- she's on two blood-pressure/diuretic meds -- and her kidneys are doing just fine. Same could not be said about her lungs, and though symptomatically, she seems to be getting better on baytril, last time we took X-rays (for the first time since we started intensively treating her 2 months ago), the left lung worsened, leading the vet to suggest lung cancer. He is hesitant about chemo - no point, he says, and it might yet be pneumonia, and mainly, he is afraid of a biopsy so as not to cause pneumothorax.
Please, anyone, tell me you know something that could help? Anything? Anyone? Herbal? Radiation? ANYTHING!
Thanks in advance for any crumb!
