Customer Question
Well, my cat won't...

Well, my cat won't eat, did not pee or poop since at least 10:00 this morning.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the cat's name and age?

Oscar and he's 14 months old.

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

Last Thursday i brought him to the vet cause he threw up 7 times. He has meds to take 1 hour before eating and has an IV twice a day.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did Oscar eat anything unusual?

Not that we know of.

Hello this is Dr. Sara. Can you tell me what was the diagnosis last week when you brought Oscar to the vet?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
There was not really a diagnosis. She did some x-ray's and Oscar had a lot of gas. There was a little part in his intestin that was white that could suggest that something might be blocking. Some blood test were performed but they came back normal. This morning and check if there was something in his mouth or throat but they found nothing.
Cat Veterinarian: Dr. Sara, Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

That sounds very suspicious for an intestinal blockage. If he is agreeable, your veterinarian could give some barium and see if there is a blockage. Maybe that is what you can suggest today. If he is a grumpy kitty or difficult to handle, barium is not a possibility and they may suggest an ultrasound or an exploratory. Let me know how things go.
