Hi, I have 3 indoor cats, all vaccinated. I also care for an outdoor cat that was abandoned a few years ago. I took her in for her vaccinations earlier this year, and give her Frontline monthly. Two days ago, I saw that her inner eyelids were half closed, and it scared me. Took her to the vet, and she had no temperature, and seemed fine otherwise. He ordered bloodwork, and I brought her home and kept her sequestered in the bathroom. He said he didn't think she had anything contagious.
The bloodwork came back fine, though she has a slightly elevated white blood cell count. He gave her a dewormer, and she's on a stomach medicine for 6 days, and Baytril for 14 days. She is eating normally and also using the litter box normally.
My vet said she should be kept sequestered for at least 3 days. She is not currently meowing, but I am concerned about keeping her shut in a bathroom for 2 weeks. If she were to have something contagious, would she no longer be contagious after 3 days on antibiotics (like humans)? Or should I do everything I can to keep her in that bathroom for a full 14 days? I'm just concerned about my indoor cats' well being. I would not let her out before her eyelids are back to normal.
Thanks SO much for any and all advice.
