Customer Question

He is fatigued, has a slight limp, has bad breath & has irregular breathing
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the cat. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Ralphie & age 1
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Raphide?
Customer: He is an indoor/outdoor cat. My parents took care of him for 2 weeks while I was an a business trip. Now he seems sick since I got him home.
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.

Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Any risk of toxin ingestion?
2) When you look at the inside of his ears and eyes, do they appear yellow?
3) How is he eating and drinking?
4) Is he neutered or intact?
5) What limb is he favoring?
6) Do you have a video to share of the breathing pattern and the limping you're seeing?
