We've joined the Staph club :~(
I had Max in to the vet today to recheck some kidney values and have the vet look at his nose. It gets crusty and pitted, but more importantly, it looks very swollen when you look up it.
The vet wasn't sure it would work, but she did a swab up the nose a bit, but couldn't get in very far. I was expecting yeast. I was wrong -- tons of staph, along with white blood cells. The vet said that the nose typically has staph, but the amount, with the white blood cells, tells us long term aggressive antibiotics.
I expect to talk to the vet tomorrow (Wed) and develop a plan.
Sigh. Has anyone beat this thing?
