Customer Question

Our cat, Smudge has been unwell for over two weeks now. He first began vomiting and then went off food and water. Took him to our Vet who admitted him. First suspected worms. De-wormed and put on antibiotics. Took him home after 2 days after they said he was eating a bit. Again did not touch food or water. Vomited green colour watery with algae like suspension. Also started coughing & sneezing.
Took him to another Vet for 2nd opinion. Admitted him. Did Pancreatic Lipase test, normal. Became very sick with cough, sneezing, congestion and severe mucous distress. Put on IV & Synulox 50mg/ Milbemax. Gentafar 100 / Catosa Inj. Flumax L-lysine.
Feline Panleukopenia Fecal antigen test. Cypro-Vita(Cyproheptidine) 4 mg tabs. Gentafar 100 inj. Ketamine, Domitor?Sedamed, Torbugesic.
X-ray, ACP, Propofol, Ketamine, Endoscope. After 12 days in hospital, cough & sneezing gone but still not eating or pooping. They found thread wrapped round back of tongue. Sedated & drawn as much as they could. Go

Hi I'm Rosie one of the vets and I'd like to try and help you and Smudge. I'm sorry that he has been through so much. I think the website has cut off your question - what was your question regarding this? Thank you, Rosie.

Thank you Rosie. Yes, the message is incomplete. Subsequently, his cold & cough eased and he nibbled at some food and had some water. I took him home after 12 days. He is happy to be back but still not eating or drinking. Having to feed him Royal Canin Recovery through a syringe. He's still on his course of Synolux. Not coughing or sneezing or congested. Can you figure out why he is not eating or drinking?
