Customer Question
Very lethargic, third eye...

Very lethargic, third eye protruding, sounds very congested and discharge coming out of tear ducts and a small amount coming out of his nose

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 the cat. What is the cat's name and age?

Simba, 7 months

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

Had thrown up 3 days in a row, hasn't the last two days when we switched to giving him his food on a flat plate to see if he was just eating to fast
