Alright, let's start with the positive news. Stella is yeast infection-free! They said she looks great in that department. As for the fluid in her ears, they said nothing has changed since the last visit. No inflammation, no redness, but the primary vet believes it's just some wax. He recommended that I use Mal-Acetic Otic. Does anyone have any experience with this cleaner? I was using Epi-Otic. Okay, now for the annoying news. I mentioned Stella has a small area on her stomach that looks irritated and bumpy (similar to the yeast infection). That was completely gone over a week ago with the steroids, but it started to come back. They believe (and I quote) "Stella still has a small area on her stomach that appears to have a contact dermatitis from the fold in the skin on her stomach created by her increased weight". REALLY? She gained a total of 1 1/2 pounds since a couple of months ago making her 9 pounds instead of 7 1/2 pounds. Is that bad? Anyway, they recommend that I decrease her food intake. . . I don't over-flow their dishes. I put in an amount that I think will get them through the day and if they happen to empty it out by the evening, I put a little more in. I tried explaining to this student/tech that I need to leave food out throughout the day because of her high metabolism. I tried explaining to her that Sphynx cats are known to have "Buddha Bellies". I said there are quite a few out there who weigh more than this little one. She responds "Yes, but that's not healthy. They may be known for these bellies only because you can see it". This girl was not very personable. It's unfortunate, because I've never had any problems with this place. It's at the University. They have the primary vets who ALWAYS get the final say and are ALWAYS there during the visits and along with them is their tech/student who have always been knowledgeable in previous visits. It's just too bad this lady pissed me off. Stella didn't even care for her. When we entered the room, Stella hissed and growled. Stella NEVER hisses except for the time she met Izzy. After the visit, Stella hissed a few more times out of the blue in an opposite direction of myself. I wish I could have translated what she was saying. Furthermore, they recommended I use a mild shampoo such as Allergroom or Hy-lyt weekly. They also recommended that I use an over the counter steroid cream (Cortaid) with aloe or Eucerin cream on the skin fold irritation areas. Should I be worried about what they had to tell me? It all sounded believable until this tech had to open her mouth (sorry, I'm being bitter). Stella can't be fat? lol She's bald and beautiful, just like all of the other Sphynx on this site.
