Customer Question
My cat had a...

My cat had a colectimy on Wednesday or Thursday. He came home on Fruday around 1:30 p.m. He ate very little (very small amount of Fancy Feast wet food) on Fruday nightand maybe a quarter of a small tub of Wellness wet foid and some water mixed in it today. Do I need to be concerned?

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your cat will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your cat?

He is a cat.

I am scared about his not eating and drinking very much and don't know if I should get him to the vet this morning or if his appetite will gradually come back.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Also, they said he wasn't eating at the vet office but thought that might be because he was at the vet.

I'm so sorry your question wasn't responded to sooner, I just came online and hope I can help.

That is quite a big surgery, and it can definitely have them out of sorts for a bit. What is your cat's name?

How is he acting otherwise, does he seem to be showing any signs of distress?
