One of my cats, Melinda, has been suffering for years from what I at first assumed were ear mites. My previous vet was useless. He would treat her at the clinic, give me drops to give and that was it. The problem would always come back. When I moved recently, I found a fabulous vet and told her I think Melinda has chronic ear infections. This vet helped as much as possible, and even got Melinda feeling a bit better with use of a variety of treatments including yeast medication, antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory. Of all these, I think the injections of Convenia helped her feel the best. But nothing helped completely. I asked about allergies and was referred to a really wonderful allergy specialist. We first treated all 3 of my cats with Revolution to be sure that wasn't the underlying problem. We got steroids again and another injection and I put all cats on a food allergy trial so there was no way she could get into another food. She was feeling pretty good until the injection wore off again. After almost 8 weeks we stopped the food trial since her symptoms were mostly back and we then did an allergy test. The results showed exactly which substances (mostly pollens and such) she is allergic to and I received an antigen set to begin the process of de-sensitizing her to these substances. Well, she never completely stopped scratching and, eventually, as always, her symptoms all came back. We are now near the end of the antigen treatment and I am at my wits end. She is obviously uncomfortable. I thought if I just spent the money we could finally resolve this. She SO DESERVES to feel better!! I have spent over $2000 over the last six months that I can't even afford and I don't know what else to do. I don't even want to go back to the vet and spend more money. Probably no one here has experienced this, but if you have any ideas I would appreciate hearing them. Thanks.
