My 18 year old cat was given IV fluids yesterday to treat

Customer Question

My 18 year old cat was given IV fluids yesterday to treat her dehydration and she seems to be in some pain.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Problems with drinking can be serious. I'm glad you noticed it. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Chloe
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Chloe?
Customer: My vet had blood work done and she was borderline good on ceratine, potassium, ect.
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.
