Hi. My cat, Bella, a month shy of being 14 years old, has barely been eating or drinking. she's eatten dry food
all her life but hardly touches it these last two weeks. About all she'll eat right now, and very little at that, is canned tuna in water. She has stopped drinking water from the kitchen faucet. She's urinating about twice a day & pooping once every four days. Some days, her energy level seems normal & other days more lethargic. I took her to the Vet a week ago, but because she becomes very "feral" (hissing, bittin & scratching) when at the Vet office, the vet wouldn't exam her without sedating her first, which the vet said could kill Bella due to her age. The vet essentially said Bella will either get better, or, due to her age, and possible kidney
disease, she won't. I was sent home with various medications to force feed to Bella, which haven't seemed to make a difference. I'm wondering if Bella may be having intestinal problems & if so, can that be treated with medications? Any thoughts you may have would be helpful and very much appreciated. Thank you.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if Bella will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bella?
Customer: She exhibited the same symptoms about two years ago & after just a couple of rounds of meds, she bounced right back. Other than that, Bella has enjoyed very good health.
