We are waiting to do another CBC until Monday to give the cyclosporine a chance to work. However, if I feel that he isn't doing well, I will take him to the emergency vet again. They didn't charge me the normal emergency fee last weekend just to do a CBC, which I was very thankful for.
We are expecting the results of the tick panel today as well.

However, his PCV is still at 20% and he has quite a few neutrophils now, which hasn't happened before. We are going to continue to monitor him and do another CBC next Thursday.
Thank you to everyone for the positive vibes!

He has developed 2 recent behaviors though that were abnormal for him. I was hoping maybe someone had experience with these medications and these behaviors might be side effects.
1. Sneezing. He goes through these sneezing fits where he sneezes up to 8 times in a row somewhat violently. No dry nose or more than normal discharge though. Just a strange behavior that's occurred since we started all of this.
2. Shivering. This one concerns me more. It's not a constant shiver, but occurs probably 3-5 times per day. It's not violent by any means, but his entire body shivers as if he's cold.
Any ideas as to whether or not these could be medication side effects?
