Customer Question
My cat won't eat...

My cat won't eat or drink. I had him to a vet today. They ran tests and x-rays. Tests were negative and x-rays show foreign matter in his colon. There is also inflammation in his colon. He was able to pass a stool while at the vets. If he does not eat or drink, what will help him pass what's still inside?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the cat's name and age?

Tex 6 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name?

Tex

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Tex?

No he has been healthy until 3 days ago. He is now vomiting white and yellow bile.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

What were the other tests that were run? Bloods, ultrasound, etc?

What treatments has he been started on?

Is he passing urine normally?

Any straining to pass stool?
