Customer Question
My 14 year old...

My 14 year old cat, who had dental cleaning & extractions five days ago, seems to be breathing heavily; very lethargic & withdrawn, not eating much.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the cat. What is the cat's name?

Miso

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

He is on hyperthyroid medication & antibiotics post dental work.
