can I give her pedialyte?
Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

I generally do not recommend pedialyte unless there is significant vomiting or diarrhea. Pedialyte has electrolytes in it, and should not be used in a cat that is not in need of electrolyte replacement.

What is going on? I see the things that you have tried, has she stopped eating and drinking?
