She is 17, an indoor girl and obviously starting to age and have problems. She has always been a fussy eater but recently has become more so. She has always vomited if given dry food
. She has fresh fish, mince and generally Purina canned.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: Sorry, Gypsii is a Birman. I have never fed her milk until recently and now she has cat milk. She is losing weight and has become constipated. Could the cat milk be causing the constipation?
JA: Maybe I'm confused. I thought you had a problem with a pet. Is that correct?
Customer: Yes. a 17 year old Birman cat.
JA: This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the Birman?
Customer: She had a convulsion two months ago and our vet didn't expect her to survive. Blood tests showed a small amount of kidney
damage and slightly elevated potassium level
