Well - finally got Toby meowing loudly for his breakfast this morning. And .... (rushes over to have a look at Tobys food bowl ...) he has eaten the lot! Very Happy
I've also noticed the rim of his eyes - which have been pink for a while (the old vet said it was nothing to worry about) don't look pink anymore. So, the antibiotics do seem to be doing something.
And he is much more his Toby self. Sometimes one doesn't realise how poorly a cat feels until they start to get better.
So - its excellent news so far. I wonder what the blood results will bring tomorrow. Last time there was a raised liver enzyme and an increase in some immune cell which indicated Toby was having to fight hard to keep the FIV at bay. I'm still expecting the increase in the liver enzyme (apparently linked to the enlarged thyroid) to be there but I'm hoping everything else is normal this time. I'd be surprised if he has hyperthyroidism. He (usually) eats a lot of food but he certainly hasn't lost an abnormal amount of weight.
