She is two yrs...

She is two yrs old and has suddenly developed swelling under her jaw on one side and now the other side. A few weeks agoninthinknone of the other cats bite or scratched her bcsude she had a scab and lost some hair.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the cat's name?

Charolle, white with blue eyes, semi- long jhair

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Charolle?

She has lost some weight, tries to eat and was very gentle till I started giving antibiotic . Not fights like a tiger.

Has she been seen by your vet?

This sounds like your cat may have contracted Bartonella possibly from your other cat....

She will see her vet on Friday. She has been on amoxicillin

You need to see your vet before then and I would get azithromycin immediately for her....

Ashe has been having trouble eating. I gave her chix broth she licks.

amoxicillin will not touch this if this is bartonella...also I would get mirtazapine from your vet to help her appetite.....your kitty needs to be seen tomorrow....

Nothing more to add. She did have a little scab on one side a few weeks ago and some hair pulled out
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I cannot afford a call.

no problem, we don't have to do a call.....I would recommend giving her a convenia injection and put her on azithromycin orally once daily.....it will have to be compounded....
