My poor Brodie has developed a sinuse infection. Late Saturday night he started sneezing. By sunday, his face was starting to swell up. Not localized like an abscess, but a diffused swelling. He was taken into the vets office and is now on 2 different types of antibiotics, Clindamiacin (sp?) and Sulfatrim as well as taking torbuteral for pain management. We should hopefully see some improvement by Wednesday, if not, he will be going back in for x-rays of his little head. Keep my little guy in your prayers, I want him to have a happy and healthy Christmas this year and not feel yucky.

OH, I forgot to mention that he also has some drainage out of his nose, but his eyes do not seem to be involved (still bright eyed and alert) and he is eating well. The vet also checked his upper teeth and they do not appear to be involved in any way.

Aww poor little guy! hug2 I will be praying for a speedy recovery for little Brodie!

When one of mine had a cold the vet suggested taking him in the bathroom with a hot shower running for about 15 min a day, also getting a humidifier. You may want to ask your vet if that would help clear him out too. dunno I don't think I've ever heard of a glider getting a sinus infection before.

Thank you all for your good thoughts for Brodie. Erin, he is NOT the first glider to get a sinus infection tho. Xfilefan's Riker had a very severe one that went into his bones when she first had him. According to Jen, it took a combination of 3 medications given for 3 months straight to clear it up at that point. Hopefully Brodies infection will not get anywhere near that bad and will clear up much more quickly. I did speak with her on the phone after Brodies diagnosis and his swelling is very similar to what Riker had.

Actually, sinus infections in gliders are one of the main causes of facial abscesses. My Cricky had a chronic sinus infection that took several months to get rid of. The last abscess he had, the vet was finally able to get a fluid sample to send out for C&S which was the trick to finally get rid of it thumb Turned out he had a really bad staph sinus infection which was only responsive to a very specific, specially made antibiotic. Hopefully Brodie's will heal up without all the nonsense wink

I really hope so Suz. Right now the infection is diffused throughout the entire side of his face. it hasn't condensed into an abscess. I hope we caught it soon enough that it doesn't.....I truely loathe abscesses.

Well the vet had hoped for some indication that the meds were starting to work by today. But little Brodie is still very swollen and is still sneezing. So I took him back in to the vets for an x-ray. We could definately see that there was some kind of infection along the right hand side of his face, but at this time it is disorganized at this time and is diffused throughout his facial tissue so no chance right now of getting a culture. He is now on a 3rd antibiotic......baytril....in addition to the other 2. I am to check back with the vet on Monday to let them know if there is any change.
Brodie continues to be bright eyed & bushy tailed and is continuing to eat normally. Tho he is perhaps a bit sleepier.

This morning Brodies right eye was matted shut cry I washed his little face and contacted the vet. I was given permission to use opthamalic ointment that I have on hand to help keep his eye more comfortable. It was some better tonight and he was able to open it some. My poor little bear.

I have a feeling that as with the sinus infections I've gotten, sometimes things have to get worse before they get better. Hopefully with Brodie this is as "worse" as it is going to get and now he will start getting better. I just hate that my little Brodie Bear is sick over Christmas tho...... do you think that I can get an emergency message to have Santa bring him good health as his present this year?

The eye ointment seems to be working. Brodie's eye had eye boogers this morning, but wasn't matted shut and he was able to open it. He is still very swollen tho and is swatting at/scratching at his face so I know it is irritating him. He is still able to breathe fine and the sneezing is about the same as it was. He is also maintining his weight.

Brodie came up last night and helped me make dinner for everyone and while he was sneeking an advance nibble I was able to get a few pictures of his face.

Chris, like I told you on the phone, Riker's eyes gunked shut also-had to soak them open with a warm cloth a few times a day. Vaseline can make the fur around the eyes greasy and help keep them from being able to stick shut all the way until they can be cleaned off also. Riker's never condensed into an abscess-vet tried and failed to get a sample with a nasal flush (which Riker did NOT appreciate let me tell you!)--once it goes into bone long term meds are a must because of how hard it is to get the meds circulating into bony tissue-it takes time. Rikers ended up not only in his facial bones, but in his skull, which threatened his brain with infection-you've seen his x-rays from back then. Anyway-prayers for Brodie, and sending PM with the info you asked for. hug2

Also, if no improvement on meds in 3-4 days, change needs made.

K...going to have to find an old PM of ours to add on to-you're over your limit dear

I got the info.....Thanks Jen, I'll take it to my vet in the morning. As to my messages, I was close, but wasn't over my limit YET. Not sure why it wouldn't let you send a new one. Anyway, it's cleaned out now.

I took Brodie back into see the Dr this morning. He was looking a tad bit less swollen and his little eye was open 1/2 way this morning when I got him out. It's the first time since Thursday that it's been open this far. Even so after a week on meds you would have expected a little bit more improvement, and Dr Kaiser agreed. We switched his meds around and he is still taking the Clindamyacin, but is taking Clavamox and Flagyl in conjunction with it rather than the Baytril and Sulfatrim. Hopefully this combo will have more luck in erradicating the infection. I am also supposed to keep up with his eye ointment to keep his eye more comfortable. Keep your fingers crossed for my baby and pray that he is less swollen by the new year.

I took a picture of Brodie last night so you could see the difference in his face from before. His eye has started to open back up. It looks greasy because of the ointment I'm putting on it 2x a day to keep it from matting shut. I also think some of the swelling on the side of his nose has gone down. He still has a long ways to go tho & is still pretty congested.

clap That's great news Chris. Depending on the depth of the infection, would determine the time factor for the antibiotics to reach the core of the infection. It sounds like the combo change will definitely move things along faster.
Still keeping Brodie in my prayers.

The swelling in Brodies face has continued to go down. He actually has a face shaped face again on his right side. His eye has also been staying open for the most part. It did mat shut from some discharge today, but once it was washed, he was able to open it 2/3s of the way without any difficulty.
Brodie has however developed a very small abscess on his nose. It is very small.....pin head sized and kind of looked like a small pimple. He opened it up and we were able to get a little bit of discharge out of it. I believe this helped to reduce the swelling along the top of his nose. The abscess remained open all day and I was able to get more out of it when he got his meds this evening. Not lots, but every little bit helps.
He is still very stuffy tho, and is sneezing with more intensity. I believe he is in the stage of a sinuse infection where everything starts to congeal before going away. So I'm sure his little head feels like it is stuffed with glue. His nose however is staying a healthy color and is not turning significantly darker or bluish in color, so I know that even tho he sounds stuffy breathing, he is getting enough O2 for his system.

I took another photo of Brodie last night. The swelling is down dramatically and he has been keeping his eye open all the time now. His abscess filled again and when I washed his face it opened up and I was able to get some more "pus" out.....as a matter of fact, it kinda exploded. It's not a huge abscess so I wasn't able to get out lots, but every tiny little pinhead sized amount of pus is that much less that is in his head.
He was very stuffy yesterday morning/afternoon, but by the evening he was sounding much better (my steamer had stopped working during the morning and once I got it up and running again, it seemed to help). Today he sounded very good, and no pus came out when I washed his face this morning....not to say some won't come out later, but nothing for now. He continues to be in good spirits and was running on his wheel last night before I left for work.
You can see the little "pit" in his nose where the abscess is located. You will also notice that it looks greasy around the abscess....this is because I just finished putting antibiotic ointment on the affected area.
