Customer Question
My nine year old...

My nine year old kitty was diagnosed with lung cancer. She saw the vet Nov 18 for malaise and loss of appetite, and after testing, has gone down hill very fast. they do not think she will last another two weeks. What hope can you offer.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the kitten's name?

Vespa

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

She was hydrated yesterday and given prednisone by injection. I have her now on daily dose plus appetite stimulant and special vet food
