My 16 y/o neutered male is refusing to eat and had lost

Customer Question

My 16 y/o neutered male is refusing to eat and had lost considerable weight. I purchased the protein paste and he was eating that. Now it is getting worse and and I know his time is getting short. What else can I do for him to keep him comfortable...I don't think I can go through having a cat put down again. HE has multiple tumors throughout his body.

Hello & welcome. I do apologize that my colleagues could not assist you while I was away. Still, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
Has he been showing any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?
Any pawing at his mouth or making grinding sounds with his teeth?
Is he drinking at all?
