Dynah Update:

Good news: All of Dynah's bloodwork came back negative :) (i don't think I mentioned this yet) and that is a big relief!

I will submit another stool sample around the 4th of July to see if those nasty worms are dead. The tech told me that they could also just be in an inactive period. That is how the meds work. It can kill them all, or some worms go inactive only to rear their ugly selves again. I think we got them all but, better to test again.

Also, they reminded me that the vet seemed to think that the eye discharge from feline herpies, will have to be addressed. I got a close pic of her the other day. I do not think it is something that needs to be addressed at this point as I do not see any discharge. If anyone thinks I should do so now, please chime in.

Dynah is still sloooowly getting back a little trust in me again. That meaning she may not go hide in her cubby in the cat-tree when I peak in to say hello! I got too close again yesterday when I placed a couple of cat treats on the landing and, when I went back to see if she ate them, I got a soft hiss. BUT, last night, she did come into the hallway to the edge of the kitchen (she used to do this) as I was preparing some wet food! This is really something! She has not done that since the "carrier" incident 3 weeks ago or so!!!

She also got to see a Bear and a very mean Turkey up close from her Cat-Tree this week! That may be why she has seemed to turn her trust in me in her safe house, from a scale of 2 to a wopping big 4 out of 10 Hahahah.

So she is making progress again. BABY STEPS all the way with this one. Thanks folks! I will have that close up pic posted next time.

Great news Greg .... ask your Vet about adding L-lysine into Dinahs food,great supplement for viral support (both for eyes and upper respiratory)

My Max gets FHV flare ups with eye infection symptoms - the L-lysine has helped alot ..... so with flare ups ocular antibiotic drops only treat this symptomatic infection,the cause being viral they usually need anti viral meds as well so it can all be very difficult medicating a semi feral cat - you would do well to try to prevent any flare ups- stress is a big factor so Dinah has a pretty stress free life and hopefully she'll not have any re-occurrances

Thanks! I think that is the med they mentioned and we talked about it being put into food for Dynah. I will order some for sure.

Yes, she is pretty much back to her old self as far as roaming and lounging. Very stress free!
