I brought home one of the day care kittens today. He is an orange tabby named Tucker and seems to be in the same situation as Good Humor Man was a week or so ago. Tucker suddenly and drastically started losing weight. He is back down to about the same size as Good Humor Man is now. We gave him some subcutaneous fluid for his dehydration and antibiotics for a probable intestinal infection. Haven't gotten any photos of him yet, but will try to take some tomorrow.
My cat was prescribed doxycycline tablets for mycoplasma felis: but was unable to complete the whole course owing to difficulty of swallowing loss of appetite and occasional sickness. Is there a suitable injectable antibiotic that could be given: and how successful are antibiotics in this case,.? Also how can I alleviate the catarrhal and throat symptoms present?
