I'm Dr. Jo and I'm here to discuss your questions about Furby.
I'm so sorry she's having this problem, but glad you're looking for the information you need.
You may join the conversation at any time by typing in what you want to say, then clicking REPLY.
That way we can chat back and forth until you're satisfied with the information I've provided.
It looks as if you've been through quite the ordeal with Furby. I'm so sorry.
Because you're having complications with using the TrizAural, you really need to let the prescribing veterinarian know that you've stopped.
They will be able to come up with another option that might work better for her.
In the meantime, we know - of course - that her ear pain is not going to get any better without treatment. So she needs something.
As a 15-year-old, what seems like a simple and straightforward problem can quickly escalate into something serious.
I know you've already been dealing with this for four weeks, but the longer Furby goes without medication for her ear, the worse the problem will get.
If your vet is really struggling with coming up for options to treat her, I'd recommend getting a second opinion.
The second opinion could also be very important to make sure nothing else is being overlooked. Furby could have something like a nasopharyngeal polyp that is underlying all of this. Failing to identify that would mean that you could treat her with all the ear drops in the world and her ear still isn't going to get better.
I'm glad to hear that her eye is improving somewhat. The pupil constricts down as a result of inflammation and damage to the nerves on that side. As you're experiencing, that can take several weeks to resolve.
My main concern is that you've been unable to medicate her ear as directed.
I know situations like this are really frustrating, especially when it seems like the things you are trying make things worse or don't work, but please keep the lines of communication open with your veterinarian. They will assume you are medicating her as directed and that she's gotten better in the meantime if you don't.
I see you are still offline.
I'm sorry I missed my chance to have a live chat with you, and I'm sorry you've had to wait so long for a reply.
I also expect you were hoping for an answer that suggested different types of remedies you could try at home. Unfortunately, that would be really inappropriate for a cat with Furby's problem. She needs professional medical care.
