Oh my nose Part 1 ( Warning : A Very Long Story )

In early of February 2023,  Me got a cold. My nose was leaking. Mom didn't want to tell you guys because she thought it was nothing. Then Sh*t happens. Big little nasty !

The first animal hospital we went. They gave us medications without details. No name of drugs ( to prevent furry patients go somewhere else better ) they just said one is for kill a bug, and the other is for stop runny nose.

3 days later it got worse. Me had more coughing & runny nose. Mom stoped all drugs and seek for Herbal Remedies instead. She found ' Breath Easy ' ( Brand : Bestlife4pets : Holistic Medicine for Cat Cold ). 

This good stuff works so well for me. very tiny pills, non gmo, no taste... I didn't even knew I ate it. Four days later... all running nose & cough was gone. 


Then early of March ( Our Summer ), a quick drop to cold temperatures makes my precious nose leaking again. It's hard.. hard for me to believe it turns yellow.

Yeah right, ๐Ÿ˜ฟ  ..we knew it's a sign of infection. No way mom can use 'Breath Easy' to help me. I need something to kill a bug.

Mom got me into one of the best animal hospital in Thailand ( March 9, 2023)
( Not the one in early of February : Mom doesn't trust them anymore )

We did not come here in the first place because
The waiting time is very long ( 4 hours + )
Because they have over 60 furry patients + a day ( Booked & Walk-in )

The doctor sent me to a special room to kill a bug,
then X-Ray to see my Kitty Upper respiratory system.

As you can see I have something in my nasal.
( Actually, Mom can't see it even she has a glasses on )

The last photo : Left of you, Right of mine
Near my heart... my doctor said it is not normal, but it is not yet dangerous.
Have to watch out. It could turn to be serious issues like asthma.
It's mom's job to keep an eye on me.
( Click here to see : normal feline X-Rays )

A VET gave me 2 Medications ( Both liquids )
1) Amoxicillin ( Brand : Cuvamox ) - a penicillin antibiotic
2) Cetirizine ( Brand : Quitex ) - antihistamine

๐Ÿ˜ฟ ๐Ÿ˜ฟ ๐Ÿ˜ฟ

After took 2 Medications ( Both liquids ) for 3 days

Mom was shock ! Me was shock !!
My nose is bloody bleeding !!! ๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€ ( with mucus )

Back to my hospital again on March 14, 2023
( before my appointment )

Mom thinks nosebleed is a side effect from antihistamine.
Because this medication makes mucus super sticky ,
or my nasal very very dried till nosebleed.. ,
or my furry body is sensitive.

A doctor ( The 2nd doctor : It was not my 1st doctor's schedule on that day) does not think so
She said side effects only occur when a kitty first take a medicine,
my mom thinks side effects can happen at any time
so mom asked for change the medication for my runny nose (Cetirizine) to be something else.
Oh !!!, you are NOT a doctor, You are just a mom of Me !

The doctor gently, decline her request.
Obviously a doctor doesn't fall for mom lol 

A doctor sent me to a breathing box ( Antibiotics ), then took samples from my nose.
Make a new appointment to see her on Tuesday 21 March, 2023 for the results.
She did not recommend to stop medicines.

On the way home, I started to cough often....

At night time, I couldn't lying my head down to sleep. I could not breath.
Mom cried she got no ideas what to do. We both fall asleep next to each other.

Next morning,
I have a labour breathing. It looks like I couldn't breath. I tried my best to catch an air.
The thick mucus was blocked my nasal. I was struggling badly.
We were back to hospital instantly.


March 15, 2023
I met the 3rd doctor, She looked into me. Listen to mom...blar...Blar..Blarr.rr..
She sent me to a lab to unblocked my nose with saline solution.
I felt better. I am able to breath even I still have runny nose and no blood !

The 3rd doctor changed a medication for my runny nose to be
Siflex ( INN: Carcocysteine / Liquid 100mg )
She said the drug will diluted sticky stuff in my nasal but not effective to stop nose leaking.
It should help me breathe easy...

Mom gave me Siflex 1.5 CC after my meal.


March 16, 2023 At Home
I could not eat at all
.. Not even 1 kibble

'Puddy, are you seriously doing IF (Intermittent fasting) ? ' Mom asks

Me gave mom a look,
.. A look of sicky
Me know mom just doesn't want to give me negative vibes,
But it's not funny, I'm only 8.5 kg. ( 17.6 lb )

She have to give me mushy food by syringe so I can have my medication.
Sicky is tough ... Me feel so fatigue

2 days I could not eat. It's one of Sirex's side effect.
To make my nasal clear, I must take my medicine.
No eating by myself for 2 days
Pee tiny, No poop


Third days, Mom stops giving me Sirex.
Because I look like no soul, no energy, not eating, drink little, tiny pee, no poop for 2 days.

The end of a day,
I eat my dried food & do some works in my litter tray.
Tiny small things that make my mom happy.

๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ.      ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ

Since that day, mom give me natural stuffs to cure me instead
She is very careful with the amount / frequently

I feel better. Now I can eat, drink, and go to my litter tray.
my nose is leaking a bit, sneezing a bit
I have some energy to run away from mom when she wants to clean my nose.

๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ  ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ    ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ

Tomorrow I will go to hospital again to see my results
Pretty please keep claws crossed & purrs for me

Lots of love ๐Ÿ’•

Note : all my medications are human medication, Not kitty medicine.

Frankly, I think your mum is right to go with the herbal medicines, Puddy. Right now, you seem to be back to where you started, but eating, drinking and using the litter-box. I think all the inappropriate medicine the doctors gave you has been flushed out. Doctors know their stuff, but they don't know you. A combination of doctors' knowledge and your mum's will see you right. Good luck, Puddy.

Sending healing purrz to my good pal. I think you're mum was right that the antipistimine dried you out too much and gave you the nose bleeds.

Hey,Puddy, you are such a trooper and so is mom. All these docs and their individual meds, all with the hope that they will help you feel better. Sometimes it takes a few tries with humans, but it looks like your mom knows what she's doing. Keep her by your side, my furriend, and all will be well.
