Customer Question

He is having trouble walking, can't jump on couch and even fell 3 times on flat surface
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did the cat have a fall?
Customer: No, not that I know of. But he has been eating nothing but fish for the last couple months.
JA: The Veterinarian will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this. It might be a fracture. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Neo
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Neo?
Customer: He is 15 yrs old. Maybe 16 now.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello,

I am sorry Neo is not feeling well.

Please tell me more about him.

How long is he having difficulty walking and jumping?

Does he appear dizzy or unbalanced to you?

Does he have any pain or soreness in his back, neck or legs?

Does he have any muscle weakness?

After your reply please give me a few minutes to type detailed answer.

Thanks,

Terri
