So I took her immediately to the vet's the moment the clinic opened.
Waiting for our turn.
Baggy has a fever of 40.2 degrees, which is quite high. She is also very pale and the other worrying symptom is her abnormal breathing pattern. There is a possibility it could be due to nervousness or stress, but she appeared quite calm at the clinic, yet, her breathing was very fast.
The possibilities are:
1. Blood parasite which causes anaemia (hence, she is pale).
3. FeLV or FIV
The vet suggests that we put her on Doxycycline and monitor her for 48 hours. If it is a blood parasite, there should be improvement within or after 48 hours. If there is no improvement, we will proceed with bloodwork and other diagnostics for further investigation.
Baggy has always had a rough hair coat and this has always worried me. It shows she isn't really in the pink of health. However, her appetite has always been very good - she eats as many times as Tabs, together with the boys.
Baggy's case is all the more worrying because of Baloo's mysterious death. We all know that FIP is terminal and there is no cure.
We came back home and I brought a can of AD for her. I was going to force-feed her small amounts, but she ate by herself.
Eating the AD.
Please do keep Baggy in your prayers. I hope it is only a blood parasite and I hope she will recover soon.
