Poor little sick Brulee waiting in her SleepyPod in the examining room.
Brulee was running a fever, sneezing, and breathing a little fast. The vet came in about 1 1/2 hours later and examined Brulee. The vet believes Brulee has an upper respiratory infection and when Mom Paula told her that Truffle had the eye infection in July, the vet thinks they are passing the Herpes virus back and forth, but have different symptoms. The vet was concerned about Brulee's rapid breathing and recommended tests. Even though they were expensive, Mom Paula agreed, since Brulee had the same thing about 6 months ago.
Brulee waiting on the examination table for the vet.
The x-rays and bloodwork and everything was pretty normal (a few levels were high or low, but she thought it may be stress). Brulee was given medication for the nausea, some sub-Q fluids, and sent home three days of medication with instructions to sit in a steamy bathroom and use the humidifier again. She recommended Brulee go to our regular vet Monday for followup. Mom Paula will probably take both of us to make sure we're okay. The vet recommended Mom Paula talk to our regular vet about giving us lysine to get rid of this virus. Brulee and Mom Paula got home around 3:30 AM.
We'd appreciate your purrs, prayers, and good thoughts.
Pee ess - Mom Paula is having a nerve test on her left hand today.
