The Results are In
Well, it's a bacterial infection. Somehow some bacteria was introduced into the household and infected Devlin. It has taken over his body. The antibiotic he was taking didn't put a dent in it. The vet is starting him on a couple of other antibiotics (yes, two). He'll start those tomorrow. Why Devlin and not the other cats? Because I got him on the day he was born, he never received those precious antibodies that are present in mother's milk. His immune system is compromised. So we'll go with this new treatment and see how it goes. He'll continue with the phenobarbital as the seizures are still occuring. Yes, he still has them, mostly in the morning, a few at some other times, but the majority of them occur early in the day. Just continue to keep your fingers crossed that we can stop this infection from doing any permanent damage.
