Tuesday with Tylan

Tylan lounging on the couch.
Hi everyone, it's the Mom with an update on Tylan. 

On July 3, Tylan went to the vet for another stem cell therapy treatment. He is not progressing as we had hoped, so the vet called the CEO of the manufacturing company, and he said they had had some success giving another cat a double treatment of stem cells, so that is what we are going to do tomorrow. Tylan will get a double dose of his stem cells. 

Tylan was having a lot of asthma trouble at that point, so while we did not want to complicate things, we decided to give him a depo medrol injection because breathing is kind of vital to living...

I am waiting for a Flovent inhaler to come for Tylan. As soon as it does, he will start on Flovent for his asthma. I hope it is helpful for him. 

Tylan has good days and bad days. I'm trying not to take you all on the roller coaster ride I'm non with him, but if you want to see more updates about him, just let me know in the comments.

He has only needed pain medication a time or two in the past 3 weeks. Unfortunately, I think this has much more to do with the depo medrol than with the stem cell therapy. I guess we'll know more after this double treatment. 

The last time he was at the vet, his favorite vet tech gave him a little green catnip mouse. He didn't play with it at the vet's office, but he was going nuts with it the other day! He really likes it. :) 

How are you all doing? It's been tough for us to get around to visit much lately. We miss you all! 


  1. We always like to hear how dear Tylan is doing and we sure send tons of purrs and prayers to him and hugs to you.

  2. I'm so sorry. Sending purrs and prayers for the next treatment.

  3. Here's hoping that Tylan feels better very, very soon!

  4. I hope the double stem cells work for Tylan!

  5. I am sorry the treatment hasn't worked as well as hoped and hope the double treatment has more success.

  6. Good luck to Tylan! We hope the 3rd time works!
