The topic: Rory


Back in May, I mentioned a problem with Rory’s breathing.  I took her in on May 30th and told the vet about what I’d seen and he checked her out.  He wanted to take X-rays.  I said okay.

When he came back in with her, he said how squirmy she’d been.  He hoped the film turned out readable.  It did.

Rory has asthma.  We don’t know at this time if it’s chronic or acute.  He put her on a course of prednisone to reduce the inflammation of her bronchii and Brethine, which is a broncodilator.  She was on both for two weeks.  She had her followup X-rays taken Wednesday and I’m happy to say, she’s much better.

Now, the thing is, we don’t know at this time if she’ll have another flare up.  He said some cats who have asthma have flare ups in the spring and in the fall, when the air gets so dry and we start having the Santa Ana winds.  If she does have problems, I’m to give her the Brethine and if that doesn’t help, do the prednisone again.  And if it worsens done the road, she’ll be on an inhaler, but I’m not thinking about that right now.

One day at a time.
