Pearl. JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with
My male cat, approximately 12 years old, has feline HIV. I took him to the vet several weeks ago after noticing yet another weight loss. His thyroid count was low, so was put on a regimen of Felimazole. After the 2 weeks of half-dose, we started him on the whole dose of 5mg. He became lethargic, wouldn't eat, vomited when he would eat, and had diarrhea. Back to the vet, who told us that he probably ate a bad animal. I looked up the side effects of the thyroid med, and found that his symptoms are those that can occur with Felimazole. I took him off the med, and he began to perk up, but still throws up when he eats. Can I give him phenergan to stop his nausea? … read more
