AFTERNOON UPDATE: Shadow is fighting hard. She is purring and cuddling her family. She is eating a little. Since she is fighting, they are contacting the neurologist to see when they can get the a non-emergency appointment.
Our Jake's Shadow is still not doing well. This all started on July 2. Her Mom was treating all the animals (3 cats and 4 dogs) for fleas/ticks ans ear mites. She wraps the animals gently in a towel so they feel secure. She had put the Revolution on Shadows back and there was no problem. Se started putting the ear mite stuff in her ear and Shadow jerked violently and became distressed. Her mom let her go and she went to Jake's room. The next morning one of Shadows eyes was dilated. The Vet treated her with IV's and deemed her well enough to go home. Friday Morning she was foaming at the mouth ans staggering. She went back to the vet and has been there all this long weekend. She is eating , a little. She is still having some foaming and throwing up and staggering. She has been on oxygen and steroid shots. The doctor is suggesting a specialist several hundred miles away. But remember, this is a large military family and they are on a tight budget!
Her Mom is taking her Jake up to see her now. The current plan is to wait and see. If she is able to come home to a quiet room with Jake on Wednesday, they will do that.
The Doctor thinks she was oxygen deprived and has brain swelling. They have some very hard decisions to make and need all the purrs and prayers we can give them.
