On antiibiotics for abscess...

On antiibiotics for abscess, taking Clavaseptin 300mg q12h. Vomits approx 1-2 hours post dose, otherwise well. my Vet said I could give gravol, but forgot to give me the dose, the cat weighs 11.4 kg

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?

Nope like I said otherwise well and even the abc sorry had help there with the enter key. abscess is no longer not draining anymore, afebrile, eating, drinking and using catlitter appropriately.

Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I would stop the antibiotics.

Is the abscess still draining or almost healed?

Suggest you have veterinarian give a long term antibiotic injection instead of oral meds

Started out in Winterped Manisnowba and now in Minnesota. Blessings upon you and yours that’s way too much cold for me. I’m an hour or so north of Toronto on the shores of Lake Simcoe, but retiring in January and moving to the Phoenix Az metroplex...... my youngest lives there. And yes most certainly let you know how Kozy Bear makes out and yes will rate..... understand about the necessity of a regular pay check. Have a good weekend.

You too!
