My cat has officially been diagnosed with a chronic sinus infection. The vet took some x-rays. It seems that he has pus and infection in his nasal sinuses and the upper ones as well (above the eyes). They flushed his nasal sinuses with a saline/antibiotic solution, but the only way to get to the other ones is by surgery which the vet won't do because to quote him "if I can't handle this cat, you won't be able to, especially with a new baby." So surgery is out. We're doing a month long course of antibiotics (which the cat is absolutely THRILLED about) and I bought an immune system booster.
I still haven't figured out how to get that booster into him. It's in powder for and ideally you put it in canned food. However, he won't eat canned food, I can't mix it up with water and dose him, and I can't figure out how to get him to take it. I've put some in with his dry and coated the dry food so hopefully he'll get something in him...but I know it's not enough. I don't know what to do about that.
I'm feeling guilty though. DH and I have decided that once this course of anitbiotics is over that we are done. We are not going to treat him any longer. We've been battling this problem for almost two years now with no success. We finally got a diagnosis and hopefully this will work, but he's been on antibiotics since the beginning of October and they haven't done a thing. Just keep your fingers crossed for my little boy and hope that this works out this time.
Oh, and here are some pics of my baby Ash
