Doctor! My cat just starting feeling bad. She stop eating

Customer Question

Hello, Doctor!
My cat just starting feeling bad. She stop eating and may sometimes drink water. It's as I'd she's had developed a sore or sore hips. She just laid Iay in I've side and then the other in distress. She'll move around a little but just laid there most of the time. She'll even try to walk a little. If there's noise, for instance, I may shut the refrigerator door or the dog may bark, she'll jump or shake while laying there. I don't know what to do. Help!

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How long has she been showing signs?

Any chance of an injury to trauma?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Any change to her breathing (faster then 30 breaths in a minute)?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything she should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Any diarrhea?
