I just joined so that I could ask advice about my two year old DSH Moon. I think I'm in a different time zone from most of you so in case my posts don't get approved for a while I'll just ask here and hope somebody can help!
I took Moon to the vet last Friday because he hadn't eaten anything in 24 hours and he'd vomited the day before for the first time ever. Long story short, the vet (very kind, compassionate, professional doctor!) discovered some ulcers at the back of his mouth and after giving him a 12-hour painkiller, he was able to eat wet food and then dry food. He was fine
HOWEVER, I noticed today that he's suddenly started sneezing violently! He has no eye/nose discharge, his nose is wet and the sneezes are wet also. He seems a bit more sleepy/lethargic than usual but that could just be my paranoia. His poop and appetite is fine.
I already have a vet appointment on Monday, but the reason I'm so worried is that he has never actually been given a full course of vaccinations. He has had his first vaccination but not the one that was supposed to come after 6 weeks. He's an indoor cat with no contact with other animals, but I do let him out on our first floor balcony.
I'm concerned that he could have caught something serious from the two times we were at the vet clinic?! The first time, there was one diabetic dog and the second time there were no other animals. Also, if it makes any difference I just had him tested for calcivirus and it came back clear.
Does this sound like a common cold type of virus that will be ok? I will take him to the emergency vet tomorrow if I have to, but I already racked up a bill of over $600 just to figure out why he wasn't eating so I would prefer to just keep the appointment on Monday if possible (the appointment was just to follow up and also to start his vaccination).
What do you think???
Thank you so much in advance for any input!
