Customer Question
My cat, Chicken, will not...
My cat, Chicken, will not eat or drink. Have been giving baby food scooped into his mouth, and water by syringe orally. Vet visit showed clear x-rays, had high white count with blood test, just finished round of Clavamox. When I adopted him, they told me he was about five months old, but the vet is telling me he's much older because he has gingivitis. I've only had him three years!

My name is***** and I would like to assist with your question today. Can you tell me how long this has been going on? Since finishing the clavamox, was the white cell count rechecked?
