TT had a visit to the vets today

As some of you know I had an appt at the vet today for a couple of my catty cats. Well, just when I was going to head over to get the boys to put them in the carriers I saw Timmy stagger. I watched him for a minute. Every time he shakes his head he loses his balance. So guess who went to the vets instead of Brownie and Wheezer.
The vet couldn't find anything wrong with him at this point. She said I was possibly too observant and noticed something wrong before she can actually see anything. All I can do is keep an eye on him and if he gets worse or not any better to take him back in for a recheck. She thinks it's possible he has ear or throat polyps http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=1+2123&aid=1561 and they are just getting started enough to put Timmy off balance. Or he had something in his ear that she couldn't see.
His temp is good. He has no other signs of anything wrong except a slight head tilt and the losing balance. There is no sinus problems or ear infection. All we can do at this point is hope it is something that will either fix itself or will present itself before it gets too serious.
Please keep him in your thoughts. :fingerscr Thanks all.

If he's off balance and has his head tilted, I'd think also there might be something going on in his ear. :fingerscr Hoping he gets better soon.

There are definately worse things to be than "too observant".

:goodvibes: for little Timmy. Did the vet flush his ears out w/ear cleaner just in case?

No growler. There was nothing to flush out. His ears were very clean. She examined them both very very closely. She couldn't see anything and didn't want to start or do anything that may not prove necessary. That is why she is leaning toward the ear or throat polyps. Especially since he has the head tilt.
His ear drums are fine. He is the same TT in every other way. It's the head tilt and the losing his balance. Very very scary. :sad:

Dr M. was finished for the day when I got there. I saw Dr. B. Surprisingly I have talked to her before. She was at the store a while back and happened to go through my lane when I was talking to someone about s/n. Small world.
I hope everything is sorted out soon too. Right now he is cuddled up in his crate for the night sound asleep. I don't want to have to worry about him falling down stairs in the middle of the night.

Aw poor TT :sad: With dogs, the head tilt is indicative of vestibular disease which is a compression on the inner ear. Maybe he just shook too hard and knocked a little something out of place.

On the upside, if there is anything (which of course there isn't ;) ) you sure did catch it fast. The vet can't even see anything.

Hopefully he is better this morning after a good night's sleep :fingerscr

He is no better this morning. You can see the uncertainty in his eyes when he tries to jump up on the cupboard so he can get a drink out of the sink. He has tried and failed a few times. He won't drink when his cup is anywhere else. :sad: He is normally playing with his sister or cousin at this time of the day. Right now he is trying to stay out of their way so they don't knock him over. He has also been trying to jump up on my bed. After numerous times he made it.
It wasn't just a one time thing. It's continual. He will be going back to the vet as soon as I can get him in next week.
DiandPat, I was reading about the vestibular disease. We will have to go one step at a time.
Thanks for the good vibes.

I have been a mean mommy today and made TT spend his afternoon in the crate while I was at work. I didn't want to take the chance he would hurt himself when I wasn't here. Hubby was working away from home too so he couldn't check on him.
He seems a little better tonight. Not shaking his head as much although it is still tilted. I am keeping a very close eye on him. :fingerscr

I am still giving Meowzer meds for his bladder infection and today I started Li'l Bit on Garamycin for her gunky eye. I noticed it this morning. Oh the fun!!

Thanks ladies. I appreciate your well wishes. Meowzer is getting better quickly. Li'l Bit will probably be fine in a few days as well. TT is not letting the dizzyness slow him much. He is still jumping up on the counter for his drink. Still eating and everything. Just is dizzy. I've been doing lots of reading in the last few days. There are so many things it could be. Most are fixable. Let's hope his is.
Thanks again gals. :grouphug:

Timmy goes in for a recheck this afternoon. He is still very tipsy and now his walk is affected. Today he has tons of energy. He's flying all around the house playing. I am taking that as a good sign. I hope they can find something for my little man. I hate seeing him like this.
Li'l Bit is going in as well. The ointment is not doing any good for her eye. I think she has probably had the eyeball scratched while playing with one of the others. She will probably need antibiotics to clear it up as well as the ointment.
And...... to top it off..... I found a poop with worms this morning. :yuck: So I guess the catty cats are all getting wormed as well.
Life is soooooooo much fun!! :rolleyes:

L4 - I worm all the catty cats about every three months. At least this new vet is willing to give me a deal on the meds. :thumbs up I'm thinking the guilty party is Spare Cat. Still don't have any idea how to worm him. :rolleyes:

14+kitties
November 2nd, 2009, 06:30 PM
Well, not sure this visit did much to help. Li'l Bit has a viral infection. So far it is only affecting her eyes. I have Chloramphenicol Ointment for them. I hope it clears up quickly. Her temp was pretty high while she was in the office but the vet figured that was from stress. I took it again shortly after we got home and she was in her home. It was normal.
The vet figures Jupiter is the culprit and has suggested I bring him in for a work up to make sure he is healthy. I told her he is pretty much still a feral cat. He has been a great boy for me but I have a feeling he would not feel much love for anyone who wanted to poke and prod. She said they would have to put him under to get blood from him. That should be interesting. :rolleyes:
Now for TT. She has no idea what to think. She suggested it may be vestibular disease to rabies to inflammation of the inner ear. I am pretty sure we can rule out rabies. :rolleyes: She also suggested euthanization. Her reasoning - I have so many cats that I should not be putting all of my resources into one cat. :frustrated: She obviously does not know what Timmy means to me. :sad:
So for now he is on a short term course of prednisone - seven days, and amoxicillin to see if that will make a difference. If not we play it by ear. No pun intended.
Oh, this was not the vet I have been seeing. This was the partner again. :shrug:
All I can do is hope he starts coming around soon. :fingerscr

OMG,this vet does not know you very well,does she??:confused:

The truth is though,a lot of people would have the cat killed,rather than trying to find out what's wrong and with a vet suggesting it as an option,even more people would:sad:

Would a vet no be able to see with her ear-thingy if it is an inner ear problem?? and RABIES,why on earth would she think so...she probably gave you the worst case scenario..stupid

Little TT is close to all our hearts:lovestruck:and he just has to get better:pray:

November 3rd, 2009, 08:48 AM
Thanks chico. :grouphug: Timmy is doing his level best to walk a straight line today. It's when he turns his head too quickly he gets dizzy.
The vet checked both of his ears thoroughly. She couldn't see anything in either of them. She said they were both nice and clean, just the way they should be. The problem lies behind his ear where she can't see. The polyps are still a possibility. We just have to see where it all leads.
And no, she does not know me well at all. I don't think many do. They see a person who has more cats than they know what to do with and start judging, thinking I am a hoarder. Interestingly enough she has also requested a visit here to see my setup.

November 3rd, 2009, 12:14 PM
Thanks ladies. :grouphug: This is a little frustrating for me. I took him in as soon as I noticed something wrong and it didn't do any good. With nothing showing again yesterday I just feel helpless. I'm trying to keep my mind off of things. Hoping the meds do their work. I said to my other half last night that maybe I would noticing things because I was watching too closely so I notice every little move that isn't quite right. :confused:
He is jumping up onto the cupboard and getting his drinks out of his mug in the sink with only one slip this morning. He shook his head once and didn't immediately sit on his butt like he had been doing before. But then a few minutes later he shook it again and he did lose his balance.
I am being an overanxious mom watching him like a hawk to make sure he doesn't hurt himself. :o Right now he is chasing flies. It's warm here today and there are a few of them around. :frustrated: But he sure does not look like a cat who needs to be euthanized.
I am still wondering if he possible has a bit of a concussion. Sometimes they get playing pretty rough. If his head hit the floor hard enough would it not cause a shakeup? In that case I would think rest and meds would help. :shrug:

On a brighter note - Li'l Bit's eye is looking tons better today!

:eek::frustrated: Dr. B..... shame on you!:sad: I can't believe she would even suggest that! I'm sure she meant it as a last resort, if it turned out he did have something serious or untreatable. I've been seeing her for years and I can't see her suggesting that just because she can't see what's wrong....maybe she was under the impression you were a hoarder....I can go in and set her straight if you want!:cool: ;) I think if they saw what you are actually doing for all these cats, they'd be a lot slower to jump to conclusions!
When I first took Fagan in for his leg problem, on the initial visit even before they knew what was going on, they gave me amputation as a possibility too....and that was Dr. M! Maybe they like to prepare us for the worst? :shrug:

Actually kr, her words were if he is not improving then I may want to consider euthanizing rather than doing all of the tests like MRI's and so forth. Seeing as I have so many cats it does not make sense to put all of my resources into just one. :sad:
If a wobbly walk, tilted head and occasionally falling over is all TT is going to be suffering from for the rest of his life then we will find a way to deal with it. It does not seem to me that he is in pain. He is enjoying himself way too much to be in pain. I just wanted to see if they could give me a reason why he is like he is. He will not be pts any time soon.
I purposely used the word sanctuary so they would know there is no hoarding here. You guys know I use "catuary" when I am talking about my little shelter. They don't. You are right kr. A visit here to see how the cats live may set her straight.
A hoarder does not take their cats to a vet when they are sick. They also do not get them all fixed and their shots. :wall: I am even considering another job so I can pay off some bills faster. Anyone need a housekeeper? :rolleyes:

So sorry to hear the vet visit did not shed any light.

I think you're right when you say that he is playing, eating, and otherwise enjoying life so clearly he it can't be that bad :thumbs up I know with Ginger her head tilt never went away after the Vestibular Disease. I read that she would get used to it and she sure has! There are days when it is more pronounced than others but it never seems to slow her down. Sounds like TT is cut of the same cloth.

Could be a slight concussion or something lose in the inner ear.
:fingerscr :goodvibes: that it does clear itself up. If not, then he will have to be Ginger's "crooked cat" cousin :p We actually don't even notice anymore...it's new people who are always concerned :laughing::laughing::laughing:

Glad Lil Bits' eye is looking better :thumbs up

I remember seeing a cat(on TV) at Best Friends Sanctuary who was supposed to be killed,until they stepped in,she had Vestibular Disease.
She was walking a little funny,but was otherwise living a good life.

Cats adjust to life with any kind of disability so much better than people and under your care 14+I am sure TT will continue to have a wonderful life,even if his dizzyness possibly will remain:cloud9:

My kitties hate taking meds!!! :D Meowzer is getting quite good at it though. He has been an angel with taking his pill every day. He only has another week and a half and his pills are done. :fingerscr Li'l Bit has until her eye gets better to put up with me putting my finger in her eye twice a day. Poor sweetie. But she is good about it too.
The worming is going fairly well. I usually do it in over the course of two days. That way only half the cats are ticked at me.
Guess who the fighter is? Yep, little TT! He fights like a cat three times his size against having those pills! I am sure he will get used to it. If he ate regularily it would not be a big deal to crush them and put them in his food. But he doesn't. I would be afraid of one of the other kitties getting his meds.
He has had a really good day. He spent most of the morning chasing his sister and flies or being chased by his auntie or cousin. Then he spent the afternoon napping on my bed. Actually, he is still there. I just gave him his evening meds and he's tuckered. :cloud9:

I asked about that. She said that his ears were spotless. There would be no point in cleaning them. She drew a picture of the ear and the very small section that she was not able to see. She said if there would have been something in that small section that would be bothering him to that extent it would be very strange.

The good news is that Timmy's head is straight! He just looked back at me when I came up behind him as he was walking to the kitchen. Last week when he tried doing that he was falling over every time. Now he did what most cats would. He looked back to see who was behind him and then kept on moving. I don't know if it is the meds helping so quickly. I am just very thankful that he seems to be on the mend. I guess now we have to wait to see what happens when the meds are done. :fingerscr Hopefully he is doing much better and the meds aren't masking anything.

The good news is that Timmy's head is straight! He just looked back at me when I came up behind him as he was walking to the kitchen. Last week when he tried doing that he was falling over every time. Now he did what most cats would. He looked back to see who was behind him and then kept on moving. I don't know if it is the meds helping so quickly.

Oh wouldn't THAT just be the best news!!! Here's hoping that it's the meds helping or that he just got his little brain knocked off-kilter and it's straightened back out! :fingerscr:thumbs up:fingerscr

I'm thinking if he is getting better, that maybe he just stoved his neck and head, which in turn would throw off his equal librium and give him a kinked neck. I hope that was it. :pray:

Thanks everyone for your continues good wishes for TT. His head was a little tilted tonight. Not as much as before but a little. So I am thinking it is probably the meds that are helping by taking the swelling down a little. It isn't slowing him down much.
edwina - unfortunately it isn't his neck that is affected. It is clear it is his head/ear area. After you rub his right ear he starts shaking his head. A few days ago it would knock him on his butt. Now he seems to be improving. That's all I can hope for.
I think it's a waiting game to find out after the meds are finished if he continues to be his regular self or slides back.

:goodvibes::goodvibes::goodvibes: for TT. Hopefully the meds and his little body are healing him together. He really will get used to being "tilted" and Ginger's head tilt goes from better some days and worse others. Either way, she still manages...and she is 15+.
:fingerscr that it is nothing serious.
