Lisa, I honestly don't know what to say but wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you and Jazzy and hoping for a positive turn-around. Continuously sending wishes for perfect health for Ms Jazzy.

How the heck can something be so wrong, yet not show up on the diagnostics????

I'm still hopeful for the neurologist. Someone HAS to be able to put the whole picture together and tell you what you're dealing with.

I think that we have the wrong antibiotic. Thinking about thi further, I think that we have the wrong abx, and our taper program isn't going to work if at full dose it can't keep the symptom from getting worse.

Something needs to be done asap, he is afraid to eat in the mornings and runs from food with her tail tucked. I will tinker some this weekend so I can report back to the IMS mext week.

There may be a neuro problem. But I think she is aalso having problems from either colititis or the C Perf or something in the gut. I thought it miught have been the tylan, but it' not getting better with the reduction to once a day.

Is Jazz getting enough to eat? I guess I'm seizing on a small point-but she's too tiny and insufficient food will screw up the dosages of everything.

My dear heaven this is a nightmare.

I truly hope Lisa and the vets can find the right treatment for Jazz.

take care,

MJ

I sure wish a magic pill could be found to help Miss Jazzy. hugging

This is all so far above my knowledge I can't even make an intelligent comment about her health. But I sure have you both on my mind and hope it gets better for you soon.

Thank you Elvi and Bonnie!

A magic pill would be nice!

There are 3 differnent antibiotics that helped her immensely, and on day 3 after finishing each, she starting getting worse again. I've read several C. Difficile patients with this experience. So maybe I haven't given up on the C Perf angle.

3 days after the clavamox, last march, she started getting worse, while on the tylan and continued to get worse. I thought it might be a reaction to the tylan, but now I think I was wrong.

Logic seems to dictate that we need to use what works to do the taper with.

Her inappropriate urinary issues seem to be mostly resolved, so I hope that means removing that strip of tissue along the vaginal wall worked and it has not grown back. She's got the funky urinalysis results, but that showed something different than before.

I am not sure we are ready to consult with the neuro, but she has weird enough other issues, aand I really do trust this IMS's instincts, so I'm inclined to keep the appointment. I have switched the abx this weekend away from tylan, and expect her to feel better soon, and then we start all over with the taper plans, barring anything else cropping up.
