Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi. My name is***** I'm sorry that no one has gotten to your question till I just came on. Has Cheese been drinking more and urinating more during all this? How much weight do you feel that he's lost?
I'm very sorry for my delay in getting back to you. Cases at work pulled me away till now. One of the very first things that I'd be concerned with in his situation is chronic renal disease or diabetes. Both of these can initially show as increased drinking, increased urinating and weight loss. Could his weight loss be due to the dental disease? Some can have such significant discomfort there that they will decrease / stop eating. Do you feel that you can get him to your vet for an evaluation? Unfortunately a lot is going to be learned about him through a physical exam and some blood work.
