Customer: 22 week kitten. Had for roughly month with no health issues acting norm. Playing. Eating and drinking. Left for 2 days and came back to him walking and acting as if drunk. He couldnt even jump up to his norm ottoman. He simply plopped over and would stay on floor. It was very late so I put him on his kitty bed in laundry room and left door closed to keep kids away and deal with it further in am. Next day he seemed barely better but seemed less drunk and more lethargic. I called vet asked advice was sent to get a kitty milk bottle and high calorie gel meal paste to try for 2 days bc they said hypoglycemia if not better come in. 2 days pass we go to vet. He is now walking not falling over as much able to jump onto low furniture and off without eating sh $*. And he is following us but now is not eating anything but what we force feed.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Vet checked him for physical temperature ears
and gums and heart and lungs. All normal and healhty. Blood tests doje were leukemia diabetes
and fiv and cbc and something else. Cant recall. Palpated organs and nothing inflamed or bad. Labs came back healthy also. White blood only thing elevated and not by much. Was put on clind friday as long with a steriod shot and topical 3 way wormer starting with a P brand. She sent me home to get wet food
to see if he would eat that. We bought every kitten kind inevery brand. He did eat that friday night and has about 1/4 can each serving 2x daily so far I get him on his own. He isnt drinking anything on his own. He walks 2 it looks at it and walks away. He seems to be having issues with back legs. If I lay him upside down he will extend legs and they shake and twitch even the front one. He otherwise wants to be balled up and immobile. He sleeps alot. And doesnt do much. When he is up to find us he whines the whole time walking. And its a weird howly whine. I am forcing milk mixed with water to maintain hydration. I weighed him today he is 3.2 pounds. Friday was 3.3 pounds. He is a F5 savannah
male 22 week kitten.
