Wobbly journey to recovery – what happen to him?

Brought Wobbly to another vet to get second opinion, did a general health profile, complete blood count, FIV/FELV test and medicated clean up. He is a lucky boy, no FlV, no kidney issue and no liver issue. However, he has two high range:

PLT –  *1774 k/ul (normal range 175 – 600 k/ul)
EOS – 1.71 k/ul (normal range 0.10 – 0.79)

I am totally clueless what are these abbrievation and Dr. Vanessa (Wobbly’s vet) explained a little to me, I googled a little and find this amazing article from petplace.com,

PLT is an abbreviation for platelets. The platelets are responsible for sealing any leaks in the blood vessels. When platelet counts are low, spontaneous bleeding can occur. High platelet counts usually indicate a disorder of the bone marrow or an overwhelming response to an immune blood disease. Low platelet counts indicate bleeding or excessive destruction of platelets caused by parasites or immune diseases.

Eos is an abbreviation for eosinophil. This white blood cell is primarily involved in fighting allergies or parasites. High eosinophil counts indicate an allergy or parasite causing illness. Low levels are not possible since zero eosinophils are possible in normal blood samples.

In another word, he might have bone marrow issue or parasite/allergies attack that is causing him to walk wobbly, Dr Vanessa prescribed Amoxicillin Clavulanate 250mg (Antibiotics), Vigor paste (Multivitamins), Doxivet 100mg and Advocate to kill flea. He will be back to the vet for follow up in two weeks times.

Wish me luck to feed him with medication and I need to get the flea comb to ensure he gets his flea fixed.

Wasn’t quite sure why he walked wobbly so googled all the possibilities and I found this amazing website talking about cats with Cerebellar Hypoplasia, I did not know about this condition until wobbly show up in my life.
