Zithromax in cats

Common Questions and Answers about Zithromax in cats


Avatar m tn Low WBC in cats can be caused by gingivitis especially if the gingivitis is caused by a Viral or Bartonella infection which has caused damage to WBC production in the bone marrow. Once the infection is cleared the bone marrow can recover. Other common causes for low WBC's include viral diseases (FELV, FIV, FIP, Feline Panleukopenia), Inflammatory disease, Cancer's such as Lymphoma, bone marrow disease, or immune mediated disease.
Avatar n tn Zithromax. A deep teeth cleaning, with periodontal treatment is also necessary. If the gum problem is an eosinophilic granuloma than this is a bit harder to control. Eosinophilic granuloma is caused by an allergy to something. It could be to a plastic bowl, your cat's present food, fleas, etc. etc. In other words the list of allergens that are possible contributors to your cats infection is endless.
Avatar n tn The antibiotic of choice for cat scratch fever is Azithromax or zithromax and is available in a liquid form for cats and capsules or tablets for dogs. Bartonellosis (cat scratch fever) occurs rarely in dogs but it would not hurt to treat him also. The vet can prescribe these medications. Your cats and dog must be treated for one month.
12773 tn?1328916786 and its growing in gray and sticks straight up, like static. My temples are bald and thinning really bad in front and all around my face. I think its time for a wig. I need to find out from NYgirl, which person on Ebay she did business with. I talked to dermatologist about the hanging skin, and what I could do to rid myself of it. Of course it can be tucked, but who can afford that..
Avatar f tn Heart, blood and Xray all came back normal. Some blood and cloudiness in urine. The vet mentioned FLUTD and I could see a specialist if I wanted. Cultures weren't done. I thought he'd be over it by now and he is still listless and this morning he had trouble getting up the last two stairs from the basement. It is like he is dead inside..he lost his spark. I can't think of any major stress going on, or not any more than usual in the last 12 years of his life.
Avatar f tn hi i havent been on here lately but have just seen your posts, im glad they have found what seems to be the issue, they also said last year my daughter may have cat scratch too and we have cats so could of fit in BUT my cats never ever would scratch the children they are far too loving and when they admitted her she had no scratches on her lower limbs (apparently due to her groin lymphs being up and infected if it was cat scratch she would of had a mark on her lower leg or foot but she didnt) Ma
Avatar n tn in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...

Avatar n tn Obese cats can develop diabetes with repeated use of INJECTABLE steroids. The dosing schedule for auto-immune disease in cats is very safe. It begins with a high dose at first, the dose is halved every 2 or 3 days until the lowest effective dose is achieved.
Avatar n tn You cat is still young. Find a veterinary surgeon in your area who can place a peg tube directly into your cats stomach, so that he can be tube fed. Have that vet take blood to do a test for Bartonellosis. Request that your vet place your cat on Zithromax. If you are not interested in having a peg tub placed than you must have your cat force fed and placed on IV fluids, at least, at an emergency hospital.
Avatar f tn Appetite stimulants such as Periactin can be given simultaneously. An antibiotic which is suitable for disease in the mouth, such as Clindamycin or zithromax should probably also be given, since it is possible that the ulcer could be caused by Bartonellosis or other oral bacteria. Alternatively, a steroid can be given, along with a antibiotic. Steroids can increase appetite. Force feeding and sub-cutaneous or IV fluid therapy may be necessary to avoid dehydration and fatty liver disease.
255722 tn?1452550141 Cool, thanks! I'm glad the Bart was in the panel though, because I'm reading that cats carry that as well. I have three barn cats, all of which had conjuntivitis last year, right before I did--which is a symptom of Bart/cat scratch. The whole, do you have cats question never came up though, so I never thought about it...but we definitely fought with the pink eye around the farm last summer--and in July-BOOM I get hit. Totally glad Bart was in the mix now that I read up.
Avatar f tn I took him to the vet. His wbc is very high--75K. He has no fever. XRays show no fluid in lungs or chest cavity. All other blood tests are normal. No Feline Leukemia or peritonitis. He is on two different antibiotics-baytril and amoxicillin. He is on Furosomide. He was given a long acting steroid shot. He still sounds like a percolating coffee pot (but does sound a bit better than before) and he isn't eating. I am force feeding him at this point. He does drink water on his own.
Avatar n tn A course of the antibiotic, Zithromax would help if there is any possibility of this disease. Hemobartonella has been implicated in cats with chronic inflammation and stomatitis. Giving Lysine (the amino acid) would help for a suspected Herpes infection, and the amino acid is very safe since it classified as a food component. Your cat probably has food allergies and/or environmental allergies since he has ear polyps. Rabbit and green pea would be the best food to try for a food trial.
Avatar n tn Eyes are dryer than normal and a recurrant slight twitch in one eye. I plan to see new allergy doctor, but may take time to get in for appointment. Is this, for sure allergic? Toxic shock or some other environmental problem? Is it reasonable to assume I've spontaneously developed food allergies and animal allergies (I've had two cats for 8 years) when I have never had any before in 33 years? Is there someting I'm missing?
551343 tn?1506834118 When I first got severely ill, I was in Texas where they don't believe in Lyme. I knew I had it because of medical professional friends in another state. I was able to talk my doctor in Tx to give me doxy for my skin rashes that are really Bartonella. I herxed from a very low dose of doxy. Things started improving since I had muscle weakness and couldn't even walk or open the fridge.
Avatar n tn 1015-2008) Acute encephalopathy induced in cats with a stealth virus isolated from a patient with chronic fatigue syndrome. Pathobiology 1995;63(3):115-8 (ISSN: 1015-2008) In particular, the epidemiologic report in the Mohave Valley describes an acute-onset gastrointestinal illness on many of the 40 patients studied - all occurring in the spring and summer of 1996 - followed by atypical neurological impairment. I hope this information is helpful. Best of luck.
Avatar f tn A lot of people may have gotten Bartonella before they even got Lyme, if they were around cats or even dogs that carried ticks or scratched them. Babesia is also even more prevalent in ticks than Lyme, and is very hard to test for since the testing is done for the most popular form, Babesia Microti, and there are many more strains out there.
Avatar f tn If anyone knows who are THE quality Lyme doctors in the nation, please tell me, just in case I need more advanced treatment for the current infection? I hope this helps, WillPower a.k.a.
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
Avatar m tn It can appear in both genders, but in women it usually coincides with their monthly cycle. Given all the symptoms you describe, I'd guess you need something in addition to or instead of Doxy. Doxy just isn't going to finish off a late stage infection by itself. I know someone who took Doxy only for 3 years and the last 2 saw no improvements. I must say I don't have that kind of patience. If something isn't working, then try something else.
4939681 tn?1361302899 be it infection or otherwise) and he wants to do a bartonella test since I was exposed to diseased cats numerous times at a local shelter. I said that a Bart's test sounded like a great idea since I had heard that it could be related to Lyme. He then said that "no, bartonella has nothing to do with Lyme". "It's cat-scratch fever and they are not related at all other than similar symptoms".
Avatar m tn The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING! DISCLAIMER! The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something.

Avatar n tn In May I began to have dizzy spells which coincided with a sore throat and earache, which cleared up on their own. However, dizziness and fatigue continued for several weeks. The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue.
Avatar n tn Today they called and said her throat culture they took , that she has staph infection in her sinuses. She goes in for CT scan tommorrow, and antibiotics two weeks. I pray to God this was her problem all along and this was her fever problem and now we can work to fix it.
Avatar n tn I had terrible allergies and asthma as child, but went 2x a week for several years for allergy shots. In my 20's and 30's I believe am almost allergy free. I live with 2 cats which I could have never have done as a child. Keep in mind the itching is also present in the right nipple. This often happens when the palm itching begins. I don't see any dryness on the nipple or the palms. Thank you for your help!
Avatar n tn Was wondering how you are making out i have the same exact symtoms for over 4 years i just had X-rays of my sinus they found systs in my sinus i am goint to see another ent that is a specialist in this field to see what they are going to do.
Avatar n tn I did use KY Silky at one point in time. I have a cyst on my labia. I have cats and someone told me that cats can give people a skin disorder I forgot what it is called but it comes from their feces(gross) I guess you get it when changing cat litter. I give them advantage and I thought that maybe touching that stuff could cause something. I am getting these cracks on the top of my hands.
