My cat is allowed outside during the day and I call him in…

Customer Question
My cat is allowed...

My cat is allowed outside during the day and I call him in around 9pm and most of the time I have to coax him in with food. He also always comes in to say hi when I get home. Tonight he came in and went straight to bed which is very unusual, he is growling when I pet him and his eyes look sad. His breathing is slightly elevated but his heart rate is normal and he ate dinner tonight. In March he had to have surgery after he ate a plastic lid but his symptoms were different.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if In will be able to digest that. How old is In?

6 months old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about In?

I dont think so
