Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Sorry to hear about your maine coon. Is she losing a lot of weight?
Okay thanks for the additional information. I definitiely understand how difficult it can be to see you beloved pet ill. Usually when my clients as me about when it is time for their pets I usually have them look at the quality of life. Quality of life can be measured by whether they have stopped doing their favorite things such as sleeping in a special place, greeting people or other animals, etc. If she has stopped doing things like that then that may be an indication that her quality of life is not well. If that is the case then it may be time to let her go especially if there is no cure for her illness.
I would keep the cerenia the same to see if it would help her get her appetite back or any other meds that she is on to see if she will respond at all. If she doesn't then that would be an indication the disease has progressed too much for any of the medications to help.
I definitely wouldn't recommend giving her anything to get her to go to sleep. There is too much risk that something could go wrong and she could end up suffering a difficult death. Different cats can act differently to certain drugs.
You are very welcome. I know it is very difficult when you have your pets who are going through this. Glad I can give you some claritly. Let me know if you have any further questions regarding your cat
