We just got the swab test back. It says 'a significant amount of staph aureus b haemolytic'. None of the 27 antibiotics tested show a high sensitivity (some show medium).

I read up about staph a little and it sounded frightening.

Can enter the blood stream and cause toxic shock (amongst other horrible things)?

Is resistant to most antibiotics but vancomycin? Should we treat her with that? If not, then how to treat it???

Is usually controlled by 'good' bacteria in the body? Does Noodle not have enough of this 'good' bacteria? Is her immune system weak? Or does it have nothing to do with the immune system? How to get more 'good' bacteria into her?

The swab showed no fungus growth. We haven't gotten the urinalysis back yet.

At least now I know why I had diarrhea and nausea last week!

I'll call the vet tomorrow.
