Chico,

We're dwindling down the dosage of the steroids so I really don't think they have any effect. Dillon's rear paws are pink and warm so it doesn't seem as if it has anything to do with a clot. Since she can't lick herself I've started wiping her to stimulate a bowel movement. I also gave her some Petromalt to see if it may loosen things up a bit. Dillon hasn't been on thyroid meds in the past and her first dose was this morning. I don't know how long it will take for the medication to work but I don't want to put her to sleep if there's even the slightest possibility that she can be cured. Unfortunately we are going on vacation to the Virgin Islands this Saturday for nine days. If it hadn't been paid in full, I would have probably canceled. My vet did say they will board Dillon but I haven't gotten a cost on that yet. How long did it take your kitty to feel better on the meds?
