Customer Question

My 12 older cat is ill. Testing one year ago showed signs of early kidney failure and recent visit ruled out tumors through ultrasound but showed enlarged kidney. She would immediately throw up after eating. Used clavamax but vomiting is more violent now (convulsion). She has a wheezing breathing but Vet said her lungs are clear. Something with her throat? :( Can't afford too many more tests

Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years experience and would be happy work with you but need a bit more information in order to better assist you if you don't mind.

Was a urine sample taken and analysed? Was it cultured for bacterial growth?

Is she losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight?

Have any anti-vomiting medications been prescribed?

Why is she being treated with an antibiotic?

Thanks and I will respond further after you reply. There may be a slight delay while I formulate and type a thorough response or I may be offline, but if so, I will respond as soon as I am able.
