Customer Question
I have a foster...

I have a foster kitten.. when I got him last week they were giving him L lysine (to help strengthen his immune system). Two day later I took him to a vet bc he was very congested and the mucous was yellow that he was sneezing out. The vet gave him a long lasting antibiotic shot and told me to give him probiotics for his tummy as well as the L lysine still. She also diagnosed ring worm by eye so I have been using an anti fungal ointment. It had been 4 days, he is still sneezing a lot and his breathing seems gurgling sometimes. He feels very hot to me.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the kitten can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the kitten's name?

Sheldon

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

He was very thin when I got him last week, despite being sick he has been eating very well.

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
