A 4 year-old female spayed Domestic Shorthair cat is presented as an emergency. The owner reports that about one week ago crusty, non pruritic lesions were noted around both eyes, on the pinnae on an on the bridge of the nose (picture 1 and 2). The veterinarian diagnosed a herpes virus infection together with a dermatophytosis (due to Mikrosporum canis) by looking at the cat without further diagnostics. She gave a paramunity inducer and two amoxicilline injections. Since the cat showed no improvement, she recommended euthanasia. The owner asks for a second opinion (yours). The cat has subfebrile temperature, her general health is markedly reduced and she is slightly exsiccotic. The owner tells you she had not eaten since the beginning of the disease and drunk nothing for 2 days now. The animal is an indoor cat (apartment in a flat), the second cat and the owners have no problems.
