Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a couple of questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.
Has your vet prescribed any other medications besides the Convenia?
What was the Convenia injection given for?
Yes, but what did the vet diagnose her with when the Convenia was given? What were her initial symptoms? Is Convenia the only medication she has been given?
Well, it will be difficult to say without knowing what your vet's diagnosis was and why he gave the Convenia (I know it is an antibiotic, but I don't know why an antibiotic was given or what type of infection your vet may have diagnosed). It is possible that the Convenia can cause nausea. That is not as commonly seen with the injectible antibiotics as opposed to the oral antibiotics. It would probably be a good idea to run routine bloodwork if not already done to make sure nothing else is going on. At the very least, your vet can give her an injection for nausea (usually Cerenia) and give her an appetite stimulant (mirtazapine is a good choice) to see if that will pull her out of it. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
My goal is to make sure that you get all your question answered and all the information you need. If you are satisfied with my answer, please rate it. Rating it is the only way I get credit for helping you. If you feel like it is not helpful to you, or if there is more information you need, please respond back to me before rating. Realize that our conversation is not intended to diagnose or treat a condition. There has to be a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship established with an exam, according to law. You should always follow up with your vet.
I would say that the ciprofloxacin would more likely cause the nausea than the Convenia. I would even discuss with your vet about stopping that medication in addition to giving the anti-nausea injection and appetite stimulant. Let me know if you have further concerns.
