Customer Question
Lethargy, not eating very...

Lethargy, not eating very much and she was a big eater, not drinking much, not playing at all and she has a rubber chicken she loves to play with and I just felt 2 hard masses, one directly above the other the size btwn small and large marbles on her left side of abdomen. Her stomach is making a lot of gurgling noises as well

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?

She's felv positive though has never had a single health issue in the 4 or 5 years I've had her
