6 year old cat. Not eating for past 2 days even after

Customer Question
6 year old cat...

6 year old cat. Not eating for past 2 days even after attempts of tuna and baby food. Ate only a few cat treats. Lethargic. Pain at base of tail. Urinating OK. Have seen limited if any BM. Have given sub Q fluids to him. Has not gone into hiding behavior. ??

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the cat will be able to digest that. What is the cat's name?

Pippin

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

Not that I can think of. List above covers pretty much all.

Hello this is Dr. Ward- I will see if I can help. So sorry to hear your kitty is not feeling well. Commonly kitties won't eat when they have a fever. Does your kitty go outside? Possible an abscess is forming around the tail? Or an injury where tail was trapped or pulled? Is there any hair missing, or is there any kind of scab you can feel? Dr. Ward
