Customer Question

My cat has become lethargic , he eats his food in slow stages, laying there between eating, same with drinking water, his hips and back bone are starting to become noticeable, his nose remains cold to the touch, but his energy is lacking, he's maybe 2 years old, the only thing different lately, is he's killed rats in our yard, 4 or 5 within the last month or 2, he eats his dinner completely, just slowly, not normal for him, nor is his lack of energy.

Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your cat. Is he having any vomiting? Are his bowel movements normal? Do you know what vaccines he has had and has he been tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV?
