Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your kitty. Can you tell me if he has been urinating today? If you press on his belly is it tender at all?

Hello??? Are you still there?

Expert:  Jess K replied 1 year ago.

It appears you are not online anymore, so I will opt out of your question in case you are back online later, and someone else can answer your question when you are available to discuss your kitty.

Hi there, I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with cats and dogs. I'm sorry to hear that your boy hasn't been feeling well this evening. When I hear of kitties with faster than usual breathing or any sort of labored breathing, I do consider that an emergency. If he's truly breathing rapidly, then I'd suggest having him examined ASAP. Please let me know how he's doing and what other questions I can answer for you.
