Called doctor to see if they can start the pre-approval process to see if I can try Remicade. Although maybe that won't work either because i am a total loser who cannot quit smoking.
Also, my cat, who has never been sick in 7 years, got diarrhea 3 days ago and barely has any appetite (totally unlike her), and I am worried sick. And guess what the vet prescribed? FLAGYL. The most evil antibiotic in the world. I could not get her to take it the first 2 days. Finally got her to swallow one today. I put it in an empty Delzicol capsule (the tablets are inside the capsules and I always throw the capsules away because they are too big for me to swallow and completely pointless). Cut the capsule down so it would be smaller, then I had to put my cat between my legs, kneel over her to keep her in place and pry her mouth
open. Her stool samples all came back fine, so not exactly sure what the Flagyl is even supposed to do at this point. But another vet tech I talked to told me they don't test for bacterial infections in cats, only Giardia and parasites, which is totally stupid. I want to know what is causing this. So now I get to inspect both my cat's poop and my own poop every day and worry sick about
both of us. Good thing we have 3 bathrooms and 2 litterboxes between the two of us right now...
