Our six year old black cat has had a discharge in the eyes

Our six year old black cat has had a discharge in the eyes and a stuffy nose for more than two days. She is eating a little and is walking around but does not have the same high energy. Her Vet said on Wednesday that she was fine fundamentally but I am concerned that maybe this cold can become worse.

We have cat that just suffered an Aortic Thromboembelism.

We have cat that just suffered an Aortic Thromboembelism. Just brought her home after she was cared for over night by an emergency care facility. Hind leg mobility is there although blood flow restricted.I know the condition is pretty much un recoverable.I know of a case where a cat recovered with aspirin from one of these episodes.We are trying to find a path from here and do what we can with the understanding we may have to put her down.She seems comfortable at the moment and is drugged up from her hospitalization.Thank yo,Paul

After returning home after 8 hours of work and 4 of school I

after returning home after 8 hours of work and 4 of school I returned home to a listless nine year old kitty that felt warm to me and also has a dry nose since last night - he is an indoor cat but got out for a few hours sunday while I was studying - I found him coming out from under my house - he also looked puffy to me when I got home - there are several feral cats in the area - What should I do? I'm at work but getting out earlyJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the kitten. What is the kitten's name?Customer: His name is ***** ***** he is acutally a nine year old catJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Booger?Customer: Only that I moved to this rental house 2 months ago - there are several feral cats around which he hisses at when he gets outside - don't know if he had any contact with these cats while he was out Sunday

Fiona-I'm wondering if you might have any ideas about my

Hi Dr. Fiona-I'm wondering if you might have any ideas about my cats illness which my vet is still unable to diagnose. She's a little over a year old and has never had health issues aside from ringworm when I found her as a kitten. A few weeks ago she became very lethargic and started sneezing non stop. I took her in and she was running very high fever. They did blood work and gave her clavamox. A few days later she still wasn't well and her bloodwork came back showing low white blood cell count. They thought FIV or FELV although she tested negative as a baby. Thank god those results came back negative! They switched to a stronger antibiotic, zeniquin, and the sneezing stopped. The plan is to retest blood once antibiotic is done but she is still not herself, and she has lesions on her skin. I gave her flea medication before the sickness started so I thought the first lesion was a result of that but she now has one under her neck where she did not have flea medication. Could the lesions, lethargy and low white blood s be related? Thank you so much in advance if you have any ideas!!

Hi there. Last night my cat was getting ready to go to sleep but his purr was really high pitched. He is eating , doesn't feel hot but I can tell something is bothering him. His meow is very raspy. Could he have a sore throat? No drooling, no coughingJA: 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 the Veterinarian should be aware of about your cat?Customer: no he is very healthy otherwise
