I took Stella into the vet today concerning her raw bottom. All the while, she's having another herpes break out. Therefore, they went ahead and gave her another fluoroscein stain to check for ulcers, which she does not have! Yay! Anyway, a while back I asked about how to treat scratches on a sphynx cat here on Sphynxlair. The two primary areas where she was scratched while play fighting with Izzy were kind of lingering. That is, they looked like they were healing, but she continued to play fight with Izzy. Thus, causing those areas to get more scratches. They went ahead and took a look at those, too. Apparently they scraped some of her skin and looked at it under a microscope. Turns out she has a yeast and bacteria infection. They said it may be due (secondary) to inhalant or food allergies. Sigh. They believe the raw bottom is related to this issue. They recommended that I give her a bath once or twice a week with Ketochlor shampoo (in about 3 days). They also want me to give her Corticosteroids. During examination, they asked if I ever noticed Stella shaking her head or scratching the back of her ears. I have in fact, but it's not frequent and it hasn't occurred enough to raise a concern. Well, turns out they noticed a large amount of fluid at the base of both of her eardrums. They said her ears are very clean, but when they looked towards the bottom they noticed the fluid. They said it's nothing to be concerned about now, but I definitely need to keep it eye on it. They say it's similar to "Glue Ears" in children. Has anyone experienced anything that I have mentioned above? Should I be concerned with what they recommended for me to do? I'm so scared to try anything on her, afraid she's so fragile. They said overall she's a very healthy cat and they loved having her in their care! I question what has gone wrong to cause these sort of issues she's been having. I wish only the best for my baby.
