my little darling was tested for pemphigus foliacerus

and we are waiting for the results.

we thought it was a flea allergy infection last summer, and after a few weeks of antibiotic baths, daily mousse, and antibiotics it seemed to clear.

came back about 2 weeks ago, the vet found not a flea on her. therefore the tests.

i really hate to pull the plug, as she is a sweet little cat who sleeps in my arms. does anyone have experience with this?

1. It is a manageable disease

Why are you talking euthanasia?

3. You may be over reacting

Wait for the results. The only real death sentences are some Cancers, Kidney, CHF or some viruses... even then you usually have time and can work out a managed program to maximize quality of life. And by time, you may even be talking years...

5. A friends cat was diagnosed with this about 6 yrs ago

He responded well to the treatments. Bud was a mellow cat, so pilling him was not awful. How is your baby about getting pills?

6. not very good. but if she needs it she'll take it.

her antibiotic is in a syringe and with a little bit of work i can get her to take most of it.

glad that friends cat responded well. that is what i'm worried about.
