Customer Question

he's been gone for a few days ( he's a friend that I feed) hes come back looking sickly but not injured. he almost looks as though hes coming out of being tranquilized. he's been trying to eat but is now just trying to sleep in a heated shelter. I cannot get him to a vet because its late and i'm sick with flu
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: a big male short hair feline
JA: OK. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the feline. What is the feline's name and age?
Customer: charlie
JA: How old is charlie?
Customer: my guess is that he's about 7 yrs
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about charlie?
Customer: he isn't fixed...couldn't get hem into a carrier when hes healthy without hurting himself

1) Has Charlie had any vetting?
2) Any vomiting or diarrhea about which you're aware?
3) Is he eating normally now?
