Customer Question
He has kidney failure...

He has kidney failure and has been given water by transfusion but has not peed yet and it has been 2 days. Sleeps all the time now. He is around 15 years. What can I do. He hasn’t eaten anything in those 2 days

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the cat will be able to digest that. What is the cat's name?

Bailey

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

He has tried several times to go outside (he is an indoor cat)

I'm sorry to hear about this situation with Bailey. How long has he been getting the SQ fluids under the skin? Has he been vomiting? Has he lost a lot of weight?
