Thanks so much for requesting me. I am sorry Baby is not feeling well.

Please give me more information so I can help.

What was she eating before she stopped?

Does she have any other health issues besides IBS?

Is she an indoor kitty?

After your reply please give me a few minutes to type detailed answer or if you prefer we can speak on the phone.

I was hoping to hear right back from you so we could talk about Baby. If her blood work was unremarkable she may be weak from dehydration and or hypoglycemia.She may have a urinary tract infection or interstitial cystitis causing her pain.The latter shows no bacteria in the urine upon exam.

If she is not diabetic rub a drop of pancake syrup or honey into her gums. That should perk her up.

Offer her smelly foods like tuna, salmon, sardines, canned cat food A/D from vet, and baby food chicken or turkey with no onion or garlic.

Try warming the food to bring out the aroma. The smell of cooking food awakens the appetite sensors in the brain.

Take her temperature. Normal is 100 - 102.5 for a cat.

If she is dehydrated she may need subQ fluids to get her started.

Please let me know if she eats and how she is doing.

Please be so kind as to rate my answer positively as that is the only way I receive credit for my assistance. Thank you very much!
