Poor baby Charvel, about 3 weeks ago we got a call from the shelter we rescued her from telling us that one of her brothers recently died from FIP and so they offered to pay for us to get her tested. A week later we received the results that she was indeed, FIP positive.
2 days ago we went to the vet and luckily she does have the dry form of FIP. No fluid buildup or anything.. So it's the lesser of two evils. She also has an upper respiratory infection, (so does her adopted brother) and a pretty goopy case of herpes in her eye.
Obviously we were prescribed antibiotics for both of them and eyedrops for her. They both take 2 capsules a day, and two liquid antibiotics as well. Kramer, (brother) takes the syringes with no issues. However I cannot get charvel to take any of her medicine!! Every time I approach her with a syringe she goes into a full blown panic attack. I have tried mixing it in with her favorite foods but she will not touch it, she avoids it at all costs.
Also, I've noticed when I try to give her any of her medicine.. She starts to drool, like, excessively. Why is that? I mean she has drool running all down her chin and dripping on the floor and it does not stop for the next few hours. Is it a reaction to the medicine? Do I need to take her back to the vet for it?
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to give her the liquid medication? Anything would be a huge help. Sorry for the novel:)
