My 11 year old siamese ( neutered male) woke up this morning

Customer Question

My 11 year old siamese ( neutered male) woke up this morning unable to stand. His movements are very jerky. He's going in for blood work tomorrow morning. He doesn't have a urinary blockage, no pain on palpation. He purrs and wants attention. Also, his pupils are huge. Totally inside cat
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the siamese's name?
Customer: Sophie
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sophie?
Customer: He isn't overweight, had a friend who is a vet tech check him out, to make sure he stable enough to wait until tomorrow

I am sorry your boy is not feeling well.

It is possible he has an ear infection that upset his equilibrium. It can make hi feel unbalanced, dizzy and disoriented.

The feeling is similar to our motion sickness.

Give him 13.5 mg of dramamine to relieve the symptoms.

Please let me know if that helps.
