I adopted m two weeks ago from the shelter, he is a 10 yearView more cat veterinary questions
I adopted him two weeks ago from the shelter, he is a 10 year old brown tabby. He has tested positive for felv/fiv, was tested again and was negative. Three days ago, he started limping on his front leg, then the next morning his back leg. He is usually very social and roams the house, he seems to be going downhill. He is limp when i pick him up and hides under the bed. When he does walk he is weak and is not eating or drinking. Very worried. Wondering what might possibly be causing this.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: No wound, i took him to my vet and she said it is most likely a strain in his hip or possibly arthritis. They gave him a shot of pain meds and told me to moniter him. Since then he is not eating or drinking, just wants to hide and is very lethargic and still limping and weak when he does walk.JA: The Veterinarian will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the tabby?Customer: That pretty much sums it up. Thank you.JA: OK. Got it.
