Customer Question

We just had her to the vet last week and everything was pretty good. Today she isn't eating all her food and just skipped dinner. She is a heavy cat and is about 14 and slowing down. Do cats have strokes and what are the symptoms? Last night she was twitching all over suddenly.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Lucky
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lucky?
Customer: The vet said her teeth are good and that she lost 2 pounds. We thought that was good since she was 21 lbs last year.

Can you tell me if you had any blood work checked on Lucky to screen for kidney, liver or thyroid disease?

Yes cats can have "stroke" like episodes in relation to heart disease or a brain tumor. Has Lucky ever had that happen before?
