disable cat today! I work for a spay/neuter clinic and we had a young male cat that crashed from his Ketaset shot. He was dead for a while, not sure how long because I was not in the room when it happened. His person was not preparted to care for him and decided on euthanization and I said I would take him.
"Scout" right now is blind. He can stand and sit up and eat from a tilted dish. He knows when he needs to use his litter. He falls over when he tries to walk. He can move his toes and he will pull his paw back when I pinch a toe. He responds to his name by opening his green eyes.
So, he had some pred shots today to help with brain inflammation and I have a week's worth of pred pills. We had him on IV fluids most of the day too.
Poor Scout! Yesterday was awful. He was on O2 for a long time and when he came out to me in recovery, he was panting and kinda hyperventilating - this went on for hours. He would meow occasionally too - it did not sound good.
I still think Scout has a chance if I try to rehab him. I plan to make him walk and get his legs used to moving again. He reminds me of a stroke patient.
Does anyone else know what I should be doing? Massage? Reiki? Vitamins? Scout will also get lots of TLC....
Thanks for reading; I know this is kinda long!
