Customer Question
My cat drinks water...

My cat drinks water but hasn’t eaten for 3 days.

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

Opal

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

She’s having her first heat and is about 8 months old.
