Customer Question
My cat just lays...

My cat just lays in one spot going on three days now after cherishtin flea treatment. She barley eats and the funny thing is she's laying in a bed we night for her months ago she never used before. It happens to be right by her food.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help your cat. What is the cat's name?

Her name is shadow

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

She's almost 16 years old and she didn't act like this before the flea treatment

If you have not responded back in 10 minutes, it may be a longer before I can get back to you. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.

Is she eating and drinking at all?

Any vomiting or diarrhea?

Does she seem to have a lack of coordination or tremors?
