Okay friends, here is an update on my Sister Zoe. Tuesday night Sister Zoe had to fast. Now she is usually pretty darn fast, but I figured out that it meant that she couldn’t have any food after 10PM. So, she was sequestered in the big bedroom and up went the gates. That’s nearly as bad as closing a door! Sister Zoe wanted out of the bedroom and of course the rest of us wanted in the bedroom. I did really feel bad for her yesterday morning when we got to have breakfast in the kitchen and she was still behind bars in the big bedroom.
Mom packed Sister Zoe up in the PTU and off they went to see the Dermatologist at Southeast Veterinary Dermatology & Ear Clinic. They got to see a very nice Vet, Dr. Cynthia Bauer. Mom says she was a super nice one. Anyways, they conducted a serum allergy test on Sister Zoe to see if they could determine what is the exact issue. The test results will be back in about a week. They couldn’t do the typical skin allergy test unless Sister Zoe is off of all medications for one week, which at this point is not really a good idea. Based on her experience, Dr. Bauer seems to think that it is a bad case of seasonal allergies, so we will see what the tests have to say.
In the meantime, a change of meds is taking place. Dr. Bauer wants Sister Zoe completely off of the prednisone and the Prozac. We will start the process of reducing the prednisone until we get to the zero level. Zoe will be taking Atopica along with Comfortis as a flea treatment in case that was one of the underlying issues. Even though we don’t go outside, the peeps do and can easily carry the fleas indoors. Lucky us, there will be flea treatments all around.
That’s where we are, so keep those paws crossed while we try something new with Sister Zoe. Oh, she sure was hungry when she got home and got a private brunch served to her by the Mom. Sister Zoe was then plenty snoozy happy!
