    My boy 5e had a herpes flair-up but it got bad enough to take him to the vet.

    The bad:
    His sniffle turned into a bit of scabbing, and the eye goop got frequent enough that I couldn't keep it cleared off.

    Once at the vet, it turns out that the little bit of gunk in his ears was mites... the Herpes came with a secondary virus 'calicivirus' apparently if you cat has herpes, it probably has this one too...

    The Vet was also concerned with brown stains in 5e's teeth -- his best opinion is 5e's mom was treated for feline distemper either during pregnancy or just before. the antibiotic tetracycline causes brown stains if given during tooth formation -- go figure /shrug.

    The good:
    After everyone in the vet's office had a good look at my kitten (my little celeb!), three prescription medicines , a good job from the vet regarding Lysine (thank you, Sphynx Lair!) The Vet let me know that my guy is in good shape.

    Because I brought him in early, the vet says I should expect to see remarkable improvement early tomorrow, and no symptoms remaining by the week-end. (fingers crossed)

    The ugly:
    nothing ugly here -- just cute Sphynxes..Sphynsis...xs... Kitties!

      Sending get well wishes to 5e! Poor little guy.

      Sophie had about 10 vet visits in the first month I had her due to some unforeseeable issues too. She had a slight infection at her spay site, yeast in her ears and a slight URI. The lysine definitely helped her get over the cough and sniffles.

      Feel better 5e!

                          5e couldn't get just one thing at a time...an update

                          Just an update, 5e has been feeling awesome all weekend -- coughing a little Friday and Saturday, but so far nothing today.

                          Looks like the medicine and care was just what he needed.

                          My Kitten is back to acting typical -- running stupid around the house, attacking anything that moves, and jumping like he'd been goosed at un expected sounds!

                          He has been wonderful about the eyedrops even.
