My 6 year old female cat is not eating on her own or drinking. We noticed 1 week ago and took her to the vet on Sat AM, they didn't do much because they were closing. Took her a Vet ER later that night. They did an exam and at the end of the visit gave her Mirtazapine for an appetite stimulant and said every 48 to give it her and some prescription cat food
. They didn't notice anything else with blood work being done. Her energy level is "decent" walking, jumping, but if she can she hides most of the day. We have been feeding her and giving her water through a syringe since Sunday and she drinks and eats ( about 4 times a day of about 6 cc)and goes to the litter box, but to eat on her own she has not accomplished yet. She sits at the food and water and just stares at it. Her sister (fro the same litter) hisses at her quite often.
JA: Did the cat have a fall?
Customer: Not that we know of... she is still pretty strong when trying to feed her and get her from under the bed.
JA: Have there been any changes in the cat's appearance or diet?
Customer: she is a house cat, never set foot on grass ever and about 14 pounds.
JA: Is there anything else you think the vet should know?
Customer: Her demeanor is great, no signs of frustration, angry, etc. My assumption is my husband dropped his blood pressure meds on the floor and she might have gotten one. They "event" happened like overnight for her.
