Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet Stewie today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Is Stewie an indoor or outdoor cat? Have you noticed any fleas? How is his appetite?
Thanks for the additional information Donna. It sounds like based on the history you have provided, Stewie may be having a flare up of allergies. Cats can have seasonal allergies as well as food allergies. Any change in his food recently? What anti-histamine have you used in the past. If it worked previously I would put him back on the medication to see if it helps. As far as him sleeping more, with him being an older cat, I would recommend having blood work done just to make sure he doesn't have any medical issues going on. Older cats can be prone to kidney disease, and an overactive thyroid.
Chloropheniramine works well with most cats. So I would put him back on it to see if he changes his behavior. If it is simply allergies than he can just stay on the medication.
