Disclaimer: We wanted to let you know that the information provided through this veterinary teleadvice or teletriage service is just a general guide and shouldn't take the place of a one-on-one visit with your vet. This service is simply here to offer some helpful insights, but it doesn't establish a veterinarian-patient relationship. If you have any concerns about your pet's health, always reach out to your trusted vet for the best advice. Thanks for choosing our service! Please allow me a couple minutes to type your answer.

I'm so sorry to hear about Jezzy's health issue. It sounds like she may be suffering from either age-related arthritis or an internal infection. Both of these conditions can cause a decrease in appetite, difficulty walking, nausea, and stiffness in the abdomen.At-home remedies can help with minor issues, such as providing comfortable bedding, avoiding hard surfaces and slippery floors, and providing warm compresses to help relieve stiffness. For more severe cases and emergencies, it is best to seek professional veterinary advice as soon as possible.I'm sorry that Jezzy is going through this difficult time. It's clear that you care deeply for your pet and want to do all you can to help. Please let me know if I can provide any additional information or answer any other questions you may have.
