She's gotten excited about mealies which is good; she's still a little too weak to catch them so i have to cut them up but she is worth it :o)

She was bouncing around this morning and completely gorging on food! She was making a horrible mess and has food from her mouth to her tummy but that was a sight for sore eyes!
She was diving in a pile of rope and popping up in different spots and diving back down in it like she was playing "peek-a-boo" and hopping all over the place!
I think I'll have to clean her up some tonight but to see her like that was amazing; even the vet was excited to hear about her progress! :o)

That's great news!! I'm so happy she's doing better. Just continue to moniter, and a vet check in a week or so might be a good idea, just to make sure she's alright. Great job by you for being so persistant at the vets and keeping up with her needs.

She's taken a horrible turn for the worst. I called the vet...
she ran into the wall yesterday; i thought it was just a fluke like she wasn't paying attenion.
Tonight her eyes are cloudy; I found her asleep on the floor; I thought she was already gone but she did pick her head up when I picked her up. I got her to eat but she was stumbling around like she couldn't see well and she smelled funny like.... i can't even describe it; I've never smelled it before; but it was a bad smell. The vet wants her ASAP in the morning.... if she is still with me. I have no idea what could be wrong; it's a complete 180 from where I had gotten her this past week. She doesn't even look the same... no crabbing, no noise what so ever. I have her sleeping right now. Her hair is all greasy... I don't understand.... all in 1 day???
Has anyone seen this???? Will she make it through the night? No emergency vets will take her (tried before) I have no choice but to wait until morning....
I called my dad since he knows lots about animals and he said it sounds like distemper but the only time she was around any animals was the 2 days she was at the vet before the 4th of July.... My dogs aren't allowed in her room.
I just don't understand; we made so much progress on her.

I'm so sorry to hear this! frown Keep your little one on you as much as possible until you get her in. It will help to comfort and support her. Offer her favorite drinks and treats to encourage her to eat. Fluids are the first in importance-keep her hydrated. If you can call and see if a vet will relent and see her-it's worth a try...they can't say worse than no, and one may say yes.

I'd also give Suz a call and see if there's anything she can help with where the eyes are concerned, her Pika was blind. Her number is 440-953-0904. I don't even know where to start on eyes.

Please keep us updated as you can. hug2 hug2

Whatever antibiotic she is on may not be the right one for whatever is going on. Or something else may be at work, either would indicate a medication change is needed.

I have no experience with eyes-but Suz went through health issues and blindness (cloudy eyes) with Pika, and may be able to help where many of us cannot. Have you tried calling? If you want to PM your number, I can have her call you, if that would be easier for you.

I wish I knew more to tell you. That she's willing to eat is a good sign. Keep her still and calm as possible. Love on her and baby her. And call Suz (or let me know)

I might call her but I'm afraid no answer will help tonight since no emergency vet will take her; I am going to be in and out with her all night and watch her.... I just hurt... did a lot of walking alone and thinking about what is best for her; Hope the vet has a good positive answer for me in the AM. Just keep us in your thoughts.

My Pika developed cataracts a couple of years ago. The changes were pretty quick and dramatic at that time. She had already been treated for HLP and then suddenly came down with an eye infection. Her eyes were suddenly cloudy and one was bulging from her head. Veterinary examination determined that she had a systemic infection with secondary glaucoma. Treatment included eye drops and oral antibiotics. Sadly, the cataract did develop and caused her to go completely blind, but it was gradual. Have your vet check for glaucoma and although she's already been on Baytril for a week, possibly change to a different type of antibiotic (such as Clavamox or Cephalexan)... I'll try to find my pictures of Pika's eyes when she was going through this... I'll post them if I can find them.

Okay, I found the file with her Eye Infection pictures... I'll post them here as attachments... (the infection first showed up on 10/30/05).

Attached Files
Pika's Eye Infection - Day 2.jpg (43 downloads)
Pika's left eye on Day 2 of the infection - notice the cloudiness and the excessive bulging of the eye within the socket.
Pika's Eye Infections 11'22'05 004 rdc.JPG (45 downloads)
This was taken almost a month later on 11/22/05 - the infections continued and the cataract was more obviously developing in the left eye at this point. Also, the right eye was now infected and mattering.
Pika's Eye Infections 11'27'05 001.jpg (45 downloads)
5 days later, the right eye was still mattering and partially closed, the left eye was extremely cloudy and the bulging due to the glaucoma was quite noticeable.
