Customer Question
I have a 7...

I have a 7 yr old manx, that is showing neuro and spinal problems. Lab work WNL. But stopped grooming, being social, and inability to comfortable. Radiography show significant LA DZ. Started Depomedrol with some improvement

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the cat's name?

Havik

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

She is a "rumpie" Manx, vs her sister litter mate that is a stumpie manx

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How long has she had these signs? Did her signs start after the medication started?

Any appetite loss, breathing changes, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain? Sore anywhere else?
