I mentioned earlier that it would take a week or so to get the results back from the the biopsy. Dr. Pedigo called today with good news: the biopsy results indicate that Pouncer does NOT have cancer or a tumor!
Instead, he has a bacterial infection, which can easily be treated with antibiotics.
Dr. Pedigo asked about Pouncer's activity level, eating, etc. and I told him that Pouncer has returned to move of his usual behaviors and has eagerly eaten the canned cat food I dilute with water. The doctor said that since Pouncer has responded so well to the 2-week antibiotic injection he received 2 weeks ago, he thinks Pouncer should have another one, which should get rid of the infection.
You can imagine how happy I was to hear this!
So we will need to take him to the vet on Thurs morning at 8:00 for his antibiotic injection and I expect that will be the end of it.
Thanks so much to all of you who've inquired about Pouncer and sent positive thoughts and healing energy into the Universe for him!
