Customer Question
I think my cat...

I think my cat is dying. She is about 15, was urinating out of box, then diaherra this morning. Now is hardly moves and cries when she does.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your cat?

She could hardly walk and was stubbling. She is usually outside but since the cold weather she hasn't been out at all (so for a few months now). She got shots when she was little but none for several years now

What do you think is happening. Her breathing is labored, every once in awhile she lets out loud cries. I don't know what to do or how to help her. I don't want her to be in pain

Also, she now has water under her and it smells badly.
Cat Veterinarian: Dr B, Cat Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

ok, I agree with you that your kitty is probably dying based on your report....I suspect she may have metabolic and electrolyte problems and the water is likely urine.....

Can you take her to an ER so they can determine if she needs to be euthanized tonight? This way she will not have to suffer.....

Do you think she will keep on living much longer?
Cat Veterinarian: Dr B, Cat Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Cats can hang on and suffer alot before they actually die......I would take her to an ER....

Ok thank u
Cat Veterinarian: Dr B, Cat Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

She is probably in kidney failure and that is an awful way to die....
