Monday Mario


So a quick update on Mario's situation:  I've decided to definitely go the most conservative path first.  I've restarted the antibiotics.  D. Moll has suggested a few holistic ideas which I am giving a go while we play our litte waiting game.  As I told her, I am not normally big into non-Western medicine, but perhaps Mario is a Qi bunny at heart :)  And if it won't hurt him, I'm all for that versus knocking the little guy out.

Glenna, your friend was also very helpful. Thank you so much for the connection.  I am going to do a bit more sleuthing on my own as far as vet options and whether Mario seems to be favoring one side of his jaw to the other (in my light assessment, no, but I will do a more careful observation).  I'm also going to go the route of humans with this issue:  Warm compresses and artificial tears.  In fact, after the first day of ointment I felt things looked a little better and even remarked to Boyfriend that perhaps Mario just had nasty dry eye.  Glenna's friend suggested this is a possibility so I'm going to work up that avenue as well.

Both D. Moll and Glenna's friend gave me more vet insight into similar cases and I'm definitely considering how it all applies to Mario.

I'll keep everyone updated.

Still the weepy eye. It gives him such a sad look :(

My Pixel cat had a weepy eye for all of his 19 years, so sometimes it means nothing at all. Just nature being weird.

I'm glad you've got so many ideas to try, though.

Binkies, Mario!

I hope it's not creepy that in the shower this morning I though, "there was no Monday Mario" only to come in this morning and be pleasantly surprised.

Love that little guy!

Poor little guy! I hear ya on the non-traditional medicine stuff but might as well try it before you have to go to the last resort. Get better little guy!

So glad you've found so much information to help guide you in your decisions, but too many different sources can be a little bit overwhelming, can't it? Conservative plan sounds good. Try anything non-invasive first. Looking forward to next weeks"s update and keeping all fingers and paws crossed.
