I’m the mom of Abby. She will be 13 in October. She was diagnosed with diabetes a year ago next month. Her first issue. Was a sinus one. So bad her nose would clog up, then peal and then be a bloody mess. You could hear her breathing from another room. She was sneezing. So now she also had herpes. Next, her knuckle bones on her front paws starting coming through the pads of her paws. Someone on another forum suggested I order zobaline. I did and with time the knuckles retracted and the paws healed.... for a while. Then they started to fill up with pus. They’d pop. I’d get it all out. The next day, right back filled up again. Take her to the vet. She now has E. Coli??? She’s almost 13. She was a stray when I got her 11 yrs ago but she’s not been out since then. So how did she get that? She doesn’t get raw meat. We’re still dealing with that and then about 3 weeks ago she had a small spot on her side with matted hair. I cut it off her. I didn’t go down to the skin but the next day, where I cut, you could see her skin. By later that day it was a bigger spot. Two days later she had 3 spots. Back to the vet we go. She’s now been diagnosed with Cushings disease (she’s lost about 35 to 40 percent of her hair and her skin is paper thin) as well as diabetes. While she still has E. Coli and herpes. The vet has mentioned surgery but we both don’t think she would make it through the surgery, she just has so much going on. Plus, I literally just spent a ton on my other cat to have half of her teeth removed. Has anyone else’s cat had this many infections/diseases at the same time? Any suggestions? My vet said to try cushx drops S. Like I said Abby was diagnosed with diabetes 1 yr ago and has been unstable that entire yr. I started giving her the drops twice a day, about 2 1/2 weeks ago and she has been under 200. Lots of times in the low 100’s. So now the diabetes is becoming livable but the Cushings is kicking her butt!! Lastly, Abby is a bit more aggressive if I take too long giving her, her meds, getting her blood to test etc. she bites sometimes. Yesterday, she got me really good on my thumb. I asked my vet any chance I could get any of this stuff from Abby and his response in quite the doctorly way was “I don’t think so”!! So my entire thump is swollen down to my palm. I can't bend it at the knuckle. Should I be concerned? I’m really at my wits end. I have 4 cats. 2 are mine and 2 are my Mom’s, who moved in with me last September. Then had a stroke in April. I’m pretty much her sole care giver. I really can’t take much more!!
