Customer Question
He is limping on...

He is limping on his back legs.

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

No. Several months ago I thought he might have diabetes because he drinks a lot and urinates a lot. The vet said he didn't have diabetes but his kidneys are beginning to go.

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

Abundance. He is 18 years old. He is a tuxedo cat.

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

He has been throwing up.
