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 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? Are you noticing any hair loss with her? Any vomiting noted?
Okay thanks for the additional information. There are a couple of issues I worry about in cats that never seems to gain weight despite a normal appetite. One medical condition is an overactive thyroid. This condition can speed up the metabolism which explains the lack of weight gain. Another issue is diabetes which their is no weight gain because that food is not able to be metabolized normally for energy. These can be easily ruled out by having bloodwork performed on Gracie.
