Customer Question
Hi Cher. I have a...
Hi Cher. I have a rescue cat that I had for over 5 years when first got her the vet estimated her age between 3 and 5. So I'm guessing almost 10. She just isn't herself. Not eating much or drinking much. And seems to have trouble walking at times.

Hi Cynthia,

Bless you for rescuing!

I am sorry, Cher does not usually sign on until about noon.

Would you like me to send her your question?

Thanks,

Terri

Hi Cynthia,

I promise you have not been charged anything yet. You have left a deposit BUT you are not charged anything until you actually rate an answer. So, you can either wait for her, I can help you or you can cancel this question.

Please let me know what you would like to do.

Love,

Terri

What Customers are Saying:

The response from the Expert literally saved my cat's life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart -- I will recommend all of my friends to you!!!

LuciaRincon, Georgia

I will use your service again. I was very pleased with the response and the fact that you have a low cost option so that those of us on fixed income can have questions answered. I will also recommend you to others.

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
