Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

What signs did Hope have?

What medications is she on just now?

What tests has her vet done?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

Any pain?

We rushed Hope to vet

this morning. Vet gave her fluids and an injection of valium to stop her shaking however Hope passed away a few hours later.

I sent the question in the middle of the night because there werent vets open and I was upset, I thought I could get some guidence from you til I was able to get her to the vet.

Cat Veterinarian: Dr. B., Cat Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Oh dear, the poor love.

I am very sorry to hear that she passed. I will send your question back to customer service.

Please take care, my thoughts are with you,

Dr. B.
