Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
How can I best help you this evening?
Still here. How can I best help you this evening?
Did I understand correctly that you also took him to the vet, he was diagnosed with parasites and was given his vaccines, as well?What is his temperature?Can you share a video of him so that I may see what you're seeing? If not, can you describe the shocky symptoms?
Understood. It seemed by your presenting complaint that it had all happened together. It sounds like he has not been examined since coming back home.Can you share a video of him so that I may see what you're seeing? If not, can you describe the shocky symptoms?
I'll be standing by.
I'm afraid not. But I can receive youtube video links here if that helps.
There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. You can also use websites like tinypic.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then post the link back and I can access them.Unfortunately, I don't have an email set up through this website. Sorry.
That said, if you post it to Facebook and leave it public I believe I can still view it.
To me, he looks frightened and like he does not feel well. Without a current temp, it's hard to know if he has a fever. Cats have temps well above our own. We run a steady 98.6 degrees where they can run 102.5 normally, so they do naturally feel warm.It's possible being outside may simply have overwhelmed him. How long has he been home? Has he had anything to eat or drink?
From what I can tell, he looks stable. I would allow him the overnight in a dark room to calm down and offer him food and water again tomorrow morning and see if he is willing to take it then. Many cats, even those who are experienced outdoors, will come home appearing to be overwhelmed when they have lost their way and become scared. They usually just need time to relax in a dark area before they go back to their normal habits. Tomorrow you may wish to offer something more enticing like canned food or some tuna. If he declines, I'd have him checked by your vet. Another potential exists for injury or an abscess by fighting which would cause his temperature to go up and require a course of antibiotics.
