Convenia is poison! Jville vet hospital (Jacksonville)

After 24 days the cat has lost weight even though he is eating (less), and I fear I may be losing him!!

This vet gave the cat that I am caring for the time released antibiotic Convenia.
I looked it up when I got home and was shocked to find several reports of severe adverse reactions, including death, exhibited by cats and dogs after the administration of Convenia.
Convenia (manufactured by Zoetis) is an injectable long-acting antibiotic that is labeled for the treatment of skin infections in cats and dogs. It exerts its antibacterial effects for approximately 1-2 weeks but stays in the body for over 2 months.

I went in for help with an injured sick cat and they charged me not only for a "medicine" that could potentially kill it but for an "exam" but failed to check ears, mouth, temperature and many of the routine basics. I wouldn't recommend them for your beloved animals.
