It’s very possible Dottie’s had a lot of antibiotics, and is more vulnerable to infection.
She ought to:
Have a CBC to see about infection
Be examined with the suspicion of something in her sinuses if only infection
Possibly have her sinuses flushed out under sedation
That doc will be concerned to know that the mucus is thick
That speaks to a worsening situation
I feel sure more antibiotics are needed and no more Dex.
- Of the last 7 cases like that that I saw, one of them was unexplained
- One of them was a tooth root abscess
- One of them was nasal polyps
- Two of them a piece of grass that had been lodged in the sinus
- Two of them were cancer
Really none of them are very easy to diagnose because it’s hard to get a camera (endoscope
, mirror, anything) into the sinus. Both of the cases that had grass in the sinus eventually worked their way out to the point where the owner could see tiny tip of the grass, and pull the blade out. Every day before that, the cases were mysteries.
