Re: Big Foozy has Cat Flu


Big Foozy is eating normally today, hurrah! I think he will be in isolation for another 4/5 days. Inky is sneezing but I'm giving him Bisolvon. Will take him to the vets in case he need antibiotics. He's nowhere near as bad as BF but I don't want him to get any worse. Oddly both he and BF have been vaccinated albeit there are a couple of years without boosters. Barnaby and Huggins, who have never been vacced are OK. Swirl is a couple of years without boosters as well. Fecto is sneezing a little bit but he's always a bit sniffly.

Re: Big Foozy has Cat Flu


Does anyone know how long BF will be infectious for? He has been on his own for 12 days now. He's still s little bit sneezy but other than that he's OK. Inky is sneezing and snuffling but it's more like a cold than flu. The snotty bits are like water.

Re: Big Foozy has Cat Flu


Sorry I don't know FM - perhaps you could phone the vet and ask?

Re: Big Foozy has Cat Flu


It seems not to be straighforward FM - and would depend on what strain of virus BF had.

Re: Big Foozy has Cat Flu


Thanks Angie, that's very helpful. Inky doesn't seem anywhere near as bad as BF but he is a much healthier and robust cat. I will keep BF in isolation until the end of this week I think. Barnaby sneezed twice today, OH was horrified!!

Re: Big Foozy has Cat Flu


Barnaby was taken to the vet yesterday with a temperature of 104! He was given an anti inflammatory injection and Convenia. Today his temp is normal, he's eating, drinking and much more lively. Needs another check next week. He's still sneezing a bit, so is Inky but Inky is not sneezing as much as before. He's still getting Bisolvon on his food, so is Big Foozy. BF has to stay isolated for another week in case Barnaby reinfects him, I asked the vet today. Just found another good vet and she goes back to America next week! OH thinks Fecto could do with Convenia as well. Anyway, all is much better in this household. I hope Ben continues to improve and his leg mends quickly. If we are offered antibiotic tablets from the vet for anything, next time I will insist on Convenia. It is one jab, lasts 2 weeks, no messing giving tablets so less stress for the cat.
