Customer Question
She is panting and...

She is panting and will not eat. She is just lying around and will not eat. She is an indoor cat.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. 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?

Callie. 6 years old,

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

She's always been healthy. I think she may have thrown up last night. She has long hair also.

Just today. She is an inside cat who only goes outside as far a my deck.
Cat Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Okay thanks

This could be a lot of things

I asked about going outside because fever would cause these signs

I am worried about gastritis, pancreatitis and kidney infection amongst other things

Do you want to try some home remedies first to see how she responds?

Paul
