Customer Question

He is 13 years old and is very lethargic. He can't lift his head upright and he urinated while lying down like he didn't know. If he tries to move it is a jerking motion and falls over.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the cat. What is the cat's name?

Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. I’m happy to help with your concerns regarding Jasper. I am very concerned for him as is sounds like he is having neurologic signs?

Did these symptoms occur suddenly?

Do the symptoms come and go? or are they persistent?

Any prior medical conditions?

If she currently taking any medications?

Since I have not heard back from you, and I am logging off for the evening, I will Opt Out and allow another Expert to address your question. I will share that I am very concerned for Jasper, and I recommend that he be evaluated by a veterinarian ASAP for the lethargy and neurologic signs he is showing.
