Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Hi, my name is Dr Luke and I am here to help.
Did the blood tests show anything in particular?
They say there may be a pancreas problem - they may have seen this on the sonogram or possibly did they do a feline pancreatic lipase test?
I see you are offline so I will switch modes so you can reply when you return.
Sorry I am not sure which question you are answering.
Pancreatic lipase test?
Ultrasound show pancreatic problem?
Or blood tests showing something?
Yes the fever concerns me this is uncommon in pancreatic problems. Have they discussed feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) at all?
I believe they discussed it with my mother. they claimed to have ran all the blood tests, they ran all other rests, and did the sonogram/ultasound
when they give her the steroids her fever seems to drop a little. today she ate 6 pieces of her food on her own and when I visited her she walked around a bit but then went to lay down the rest of the time.
because the vet hospital cannot come up with a diagnosis, we are supposed to pick her up tomorrow and they are going to show us how to inject the steroids and all the above. We bought wet cat food and syringes so we can feed and give her water if she does not do it on her own. I am just concerned. Can it just be that she has a fever and it takes a few days to break? Do cats in this type of case usually not make it?
