Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible...
how long has she been on the antibiotics?
HOw is she acting other than the discharge?
Is she spayed?
Has the discharge slowed down or changed at all since starting the medication?
Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
Since there hasn't been a change in discharge, and I absolutely would have expected there to be an improvement after 5 days, I would give your vet a call and ask if they feel there should be a change in medication.
Often, they'll start a pet one one kind of med, but it just isn't strong enough or the exact right medication to get the job done, so they have to switch to a different kind.
They may want to do something called a "culture and sensitivity" on the discharge. This is when they take a swab of the discharge and put it on little plates to cook in an incubator after dropping little antibiotic discs on it. The area around the disc with the least about of bacterial growth will indicate what kind of medication they should be using.
But I'd definitely give them a call, just to be on the safe side.
I hope this helps.
