Exclamation Beware of Convenia

My otherwise healthy 9 year old cat received an injection on Convenia last week for a UTI. He proceeded to go into shock requiring intubation and aggressive resuscitation. He lost his vision, was altered, and his hind legs were paralyzed. He regained his vision and use of his legs about 14 hours later. It broke my heart watching him struggle like that. He spent three days at the vet evaluating all his organ systems to determine what happened. The scant literature demonstrates no adverse reactions, BUT please beware that this may not be a benign medication. Thank god I had a great vet who acted to save his life. I'm sure any antibiotic would have cost less than the $2200 I spent for this reaction.
