Customer Question
He is stumbling around...

He is stumbling around and seems unbalanced. He is about 6 months old. He has been eating ravenously and his water dish has been completely empty the past few days when I get home

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Did the cat have a fall?

Not that I am aware of

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name?

Loki

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

He was a rescue. He has always had a very healthy appetite but the past few days he is really eating very and can't seem to get enough. We also have an 18 month old male cat. They both recently had vet checks. Loki was declawed about 2 mos ago. They are indoor cars
