Thankfully, Layla the cat has fully recovered from her episode two weeks ago, when she suddenly began to fall and stumble.
She is currently taking Clindamycin, 1/2 tablet twice a day, to treat for a possible middle ear infection and her recurring urinary tract infection. To ensure she keeps the antibiotic down (she was starting to throw it up), she gets 1/4 tablet of Pepcid with each dose. She is also getting Mometomax liquid in her ears once a day.
Her blood test was repeated, and the ALT liver enzyme, which was high on the first test, did not change. So, my vet put her on a supplement called Denosyl (S-Adenosyl methionine, or S-AMe), which aids the liver as it repairs from any damage it might have incurred. It also has possible brain/mood properties, which makes it useful for neurological functioning issues. We will repeat the blood test sometime after Thanksgiving to see what the ALT number reads.
That's a lot of pills for such a little kitty, but she's managing very well. Her spirits are extremely high - she's active, running up and down the stairs, taunting Marge, etc. I think that her ears must feel a lot better, and she's not worried about falling down any more, so she can be herself. She even got pretty feisty the other night when I took out a toy for her to play with.
Here she is giving me one of her signature "hugs" - she can't resist but to climb on me and outstretch her arms when I'm laying flat on my back on the couch. It's one of my favorite things that she does.
Paws crossed that her health continues to improve.
