Tanner is posting today because he is still struggling with congestion and would like some purrs. He went to the vet a couple of weeks ago and thankfully, his bloodwork all came back normal. He is congested, but it doesn't seem to be going away.
He went back yesterday because he is still very stuffy and now an eye is running. We are increasing his lysine, adding a small dose of Prednisolone and some eye drops to his medications. He already has an appointment scheduled for Oct 18th for a recheck. We will evaluate our plan and adjust as needed then. The vet feels it is either allergies or a viral infection, so antibiotics aren't needed. We are just trying to find the right combination to offer Tanner some relief from the stuffy nose and sneezing.
On a happier note, we escaped Hurricane Matthew with no damage. We received over 6 inches of rain and had quite a bit of wind, but did not lose power!
The day after is always so beautiful and fresh feeling! We were still having a good bit of wind, so we opened the windows to air out the house. The boys loved it!
Might not have been the best for Tanner, if he is having allergies, but the panthers enjoyed it. I love how they hang out together these days. Oliver has really taken to them. Harrison, sitting on the sill with Oliver, is his mini me. Flynn, on the step, is such a sweetheart. He has started talking a little bit now and comes running when you call his name. Everyone slept well that night!
I hope to give a positive update on Tanner next week...fingers crossed the steroids will help him!
