It started just over a week ago with his nose starting to run again. I put him back on his nose drops and talked to my vet and he was put back on his antibiotics to prevent a sinus flare up. If he got too wheezy I was to give him his prednisone to help with inflamation. Well it didn't work. He is really wheezy this morning, in addition, his nose is slightly swollen and he's opened it up in the same spot he did last winter, he scratched himself next to his eye and had a bloody nose sometime last night. He has a Dr apt for this afternoon unless they can squeeze us in earlier.

On the plus side, he is well groomed with a very fluffy tail and alert ears and no eye boogers.

Poor baby...hopefully your vet will be able to find the root of the problem and help him effectively. I wish him a fast recovery.

Well, just got back from the vets office. Brodie goes in tomorrow morning for an x-ray. I'm also to make a few slight changes in his medication. We decided that it was in Brodie's best interest to give him his prednisone in 2 doses per day rather than one, so starting tomorrow he'll be getting 1/2 dose in the morning & the other 1/2 in the evening. Hopefully this will give him round the clock help on the inflamation and keep his breathing easier. He is also going to be getting his allergy drops more often through the day/night 3-4 times a day now rather than just twice.
I have to admit that Brodies breathing after getting his prednisone this morning really improved and by this afternoon he was hardly wheezing. Still some nasal discharge, but I haven't yet figured out a way to train him to blow his nose. He's like a little kid & just wipes the drips off on whatever or whoever is handy.

Well, it sounds like good news so far! Sorry he's still dealing with a runny nose and wiping it on you and everything (one) around him, but I am glad to hear he's already wheezing less than he was from the meds! Anxious to hear the update after xrays! Sending thoughts your way!

The prednisone, does an amazing job with helping him breath easier, but it is nasty to take him off of. You have to wean them off otherwise they have rather dramatic withdrawl symptoms.

Oh no, I had no idea! Yikes...I'm sorry to say I don't know Brodie's history but I can only assume this is something you've done over and over again?

Brodie first got a SEVERE sinus infection last Dec. We have been fighting it off and on ever since. You should have seen my poor baby then, his poor little face was so swollen it was pathetic. Compared to then this is relatively mild, but I'm just paranoid about it getting that bad again.

could it be that you have any plug in air freshners or cleaning agent causing these problems. could it be what u are cleaning the cage with. the cats maybe they are allergic to the cats

I clean the cage with either antibacterial soap (same kind as I've used for years) or with just hot water. No air fresheners, and if it was the kitties it would be constant rather than off & on. I have noticed that when the weather changes it flares up so I think it's more a reaction to that.

Me too, poor little guy had a nosebleed last night. It's so frustrating, all I could do was to keep cleaning him up and give him some torb so his head wouldn't hurt. You have to know Brodie to appreciate this, but he pretty much ignored the nose bleed and decided to run on his wheel and just snort every so often to clear his airway....go figure.

I just got back from the vets with Brodie. The X-Rays didn't have good news. There is some separation in the bones of his face and this generally means there is some kind of a mass growing in there. cry Per my vet, I am to keep him on antibiotics to prevent any secondary infections and to continue the prednisone indefinately. Our concern at this point is keeping my little guy comfortable.

Due to the area that it is in, he didn't seem confidant that there was anything we could do at this point other than make Brodie comfortable.

I took some pictures of Brodie last night that I thought I'd share. My little man had a good night. He was breathing well, he ate well and he played in his wheel and in his playhouse. If you look at the closeup, you can see the swelling on the right side of his face (the left side of the picture since he's looking at you) It also makes his nose look "off" like it is set at the wrong angle.

Well I got the x-rays from my vet and I have to admit that I can't see anything. Of course it could be that I have NO idea of what I should be looking for. Anyway, here they are.
