    VAIL IS VERY ILL AND LOST PAWS ANIMAL RESCUE NEEDS HELP PLEASE


    Shelter sent her out with Doxy but her uri was not responding. She has an extremely high WBC. We are waiting for results from a Toxo test. In the mean time she is getting IV and supportive care.
    She is not positive. She through a couple things out. Toxoplasmosis is one. We are waiting on test results. She also has started her on Clindamycin which is used to treat it if its positive. She also put out dry FIP as a possibility. Or an infection in the spinal cord or brain. CH has not been ruled out. Because the WBC count was so high she was not sure if the neuro symptoms could be related to the infection or not.

    THIS WAS VAIL'S SHELTER DESCRIPTION WHEN SHE WAS ON THE URGENT LIST AT BROOKLYN SHELTER:

    Vail was saved by Lost Paws Animal Rescue
    AC&C, NYC - Brooklyn Center

    Vail has nerve damage, or perhaps CH! Please consider pulling from BACC!

    Our vets believe this kitty has Cerebellar Hypoplasia, but her condition could potentially stem from nerve damage in her hind end. She's pretty ataxic, and she does not appear to be using her litter box. That said, she is extremely friendly and affectionate! She's always purring and makes "muffins" if you give her even the slightest attention!! Please consider this little lady!!!

    Latest update is that she is responding to antibiotics; her WBC is down a little and she has started eating on her own when they hold the bowl near her. Her chipin account is over half-way to $750 they need to raise. Positive things, but she still needs lots of help.

    I just couldn't ignore Vail's plight so gave a small donation. Every little bit helps toward the goal of getting Vail healthy. I hope she will be and purrs to all who are helping precious Vail.
