I had my little tortie 4 years old to the vet 2 weeks ago…

Customer Question
Hello. I had my...

Hello. I had my little tortie 4 years old to the vet 2 weeks ago when she seemed to stop being active and did not eat that day. Blood work and many tests run...temp normal, bloodwork great no other obstructions...possible slight infection which antibiotics worked and she began being her active self and ravenous appetite. NOW 2 weeks later, she is not eating yesterday but is not sleeping either....she does not cry when touched or picked up but refuses to eat ....not even her treats. I will take her to my vet again tomorrow since they are closed today but I do not know what to do now.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?

My tortie cat...4 years old

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

Penny

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Penny?

No she has been regularly vaccinated and is a very active healthy little girl....again no prblems found in all of her blood tests, etc.
