JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the cat?
Customer: not that i can think of other than that i think he has been ok

Hello,

I am sorry your boy is having trouble.

How long has he had this leg issue? Do you have any idea what happened to his leg?

Was he outdoors prior to his breathing problem?

Expert:  Terri replied 1 month ago.

He may be nauseated leading to his breathing issues.

Give him one quarter of a ten mg pepcid a/c (famotidine). I usually add it to a tablespoon of baby food chicken with no onion or garlic Or canned cat food.Every 12 hours.

Remove all dry food and any wet with chunks, pieces or shreds.

Feed only smooth pate canned food or baby food.

If he gets dehydrated give him tuna water drained from the can.

Please let me know how he is doing .
