My 15 year old male cat had a severe sinus infection for 2.5

Customer Question

My 15 year old male cat had a severe sinus infection for 2.5 years which was cured with Zeniquin. Immediately he developed muscle wasting which became severe over next 5 months. Vet insisted normal. My cat had no specific symptoms except muscle wasting of hind leg stiffness. Then severe downhill in 5 days. Lost control of spinchter muscle, lost ability to poo, lost fine motor control of paws, vocalized heartbreakingly for up to 6 hours per day to Euthansia. Blood work all normal according to vet, Extensive Sonogram all normal. My cat continued to eat, tried to maintain normal routine through these five days. Buphrinenorpine ineffective. Valium minimally helpful. Only real clue at very end was present of hard chalky white substance in poo -- either section of regular poo or spray of crystals in liquid poo. Need closure more than Medical mystery or Nothing wrong. Please suggest how hypothetical diagnosis options. My cat is at peace but I am not.
