Stevie was found with a group of feral cats at a local business and was diagnosed with ringworm. We began the painstaking process to eradicating it. One day, one of the volunteers noticed that Stevie was acting strange and went over to check on him. He was having a seizure and was rushed to the emergency room. The cause of the seizure was undetermined.
Once week later, Stevie exhibited seizures and was once again taken to the emergency room where he received another undetermined diagnosis. Upon returning home, he was taken out of the carrier and couldn’t walk!
We took him back to the vet and he had a MRI and a CAT scan. Everything came back on the tests inconclusive. His original doctor suggested to bring him back to her and she would treat him holistically–Cold Lazer, Acupuncture and Chiropractic Therapy. It was also discovered he had an urinary tract infection as was given antibiotics.
He was sent home and we had to express his bladder every 2 hours. The thing about Stevie through all of this was his loving personality. He never scratched, bit or demonstrated aggression through all his medical procedures. It was determined his paralysis was due to the incorrect insertion of his micro-chip. Stevie had several treatments a day to gain mobility, balance and strength in his back legs. His recovery was remarkable and he was ready for his new home.
Stevie has had one more minor surgery, which it turns out he had been miss-diagnosed with ringworm ,he and his sister had another form of fungus infection.They are both doing great with their forever home
