Thread: Creamsicle is home from her biopsy *Update 8/7

  1. #1

    Creamsicle is home from her biopsy *Update 8/7

    She's got that *(&^&((%$^% hair follicle infection again! I'm kinda miffed at my vet because he was going to do a biopsy while she was under the anesthesia for spaying but he said that her skin looked so good that he didn't do it. Well, now the infection is back, so he's talking biopsy again. Sigh. Aside from the fact that I feel so bad for my little girl, that means she's going to have to be put under again. And my finances are killing me! Oh well, such is life, I guess. Her appt. is tomorrow morning and I'll update as soon as I know something.

    Oh my, poor you and poor Creamsicle. Maybe the vet won't charge for the anesthesia this time since he SHOULD have done it before and didn't. That could help. Many prayers for Creamsicle from me and the girls in Indiana that all goes well.

    Well, there won't be any anesthesia tomorrow, that's for sure. He has to give her a shot first to clear up the infection. I'm hoping that I misunderstood my vet as far as treatment goes. He's VERY aggressive w/his vet care and he told me that the day we met. And he's not one to pad the bill either. My last visit there he gave me quite a hefty discount saving me several hundred dollars. So I'm thinking maybe I'm just not "getting it" and I intend to ask him about it tomorrow. He doesn't pull any punches so I'm not going to either. He's a great vet, very intuitive, so he's got to have a good reason for not doing the biopsy while she was already under the anesthesia. I just had a "oh dammit" moment when I realized the infection was back. Thanx, though, for the prayers. Cgirl can definitely use 'em.

    What is a follicle infection, and how does this happen? I wondering since one of our ferals, Marshmellow, that resides in our backyard has a weird area on his neck. Fur missing and raw looking. He was recently at the vet and got an all clear on his health, so this is a new thing. It's not ringworm it's more like he's scratching it raw. I sure hope your little one gets well soon!
    Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a full management plan in which stray and feral cats already living outdoors in cities, towns, and rural areas are humanely trapped, then evaluated, vaccinated, and sterilized by veterinarians. Kittens and tame cats are adopted into good homes. Healthy adult cats too wild to be adopted are returned to their familiar habitat under the lifelong care of volunteers

    It starts out feeling like little pimples. If your feral allows you to pet him, when you remove your hand, chances are good that it'll be covered w/cat hair. And the pimples have heads on them and you can pick one off like you would pull sections out of a paint brush. They're very itchy and the cat is just miserable w/it. Dr. Lee said that it occurs mainly in horses from standing in dirty stalls. Cgirl probably gets it from the litterbox even though I clean them several times a day. But, as I mentioned, her immune system is compromised so she can get things that my other cats wouldn't. Left untreated they can lose all their fur and it's so itchy, it's like having poison ivy. As it is, Cgirl lost hair on the top of her head and her chest. I went on a cleaning binge but Dr. Lee assured me that it's nothing that I was or was not doing. Hope this helps.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    Poor girl! How do they treat this? I have never heard of it. It amazes me the things these kitties can get, so much like humans.. Hope he can get her fixed up asap and without a whole lot of problems for you or her.

    Poor girl! Too bad that your vet hasn't done the biopsy when she was already under anaesthesia!! How awful that she has to deal with that now! And I can totally relate to your worries about the financials!

    Nah, Dr. Lee is awesome. When I talk to him tomorrow, I'm sure he'll clear everything up for me. I'm just in a pissy faced mood. I made a special trip in to my other office for a client and she didn't show. I called her, no answer, left a voice mail and she didn't return my call. I'm just having one of those days and I've been letting it get the better of me. Oh well, my mantra is "Give me day and I'll be ok." As long as my Cgirl isn't itching too badly right now, I'll be fine after I talk to Dr. Lee. Sorry if I sounded whiney. I've just been going back and forth to the vet for months now w/one catastrophe after another while I'm slowly remodeling my house. Add running between two offices every day to the mix and you've got yourself a crazy blonde lady! Thanx for listening, friends, and I'll update as soon as I know more.
    Blessings,

    Poor Creamsicle. That infection sounds miserable! I'm so sorry it's back.

    I understand your mood. I was the same way Monday with Ripley. It's not that I'm upset with vet or feel like she isn't doing enough or the right thing it's just my frustration because I know Rip is miserable and I don't know what to do. He gets grumpy too which he usually takes out on me.

    Prayers and positive thoughts for Creamsicle.

    From Decker with Love
