Hello and thank you for your question. It appears that the Expert you were hoping to speak with is not currently available. I have stepped in to assist you in their absence so that you have a prompt reply to your question. If you would rather wait for the Expert you had originally contacted, just let me know. Otherwise, I’ll be happy to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) Is her abdomen mildly swollen or very swollen? 2) Did your vet discuss any disorders that might be contributing to the abdominal swelling such as feline infectious peritonitis? 3) Has the NSAID and antibiotic helped at all?4) When was her last normal meal? 5) How long have you had her? 6) Did they check her abdomen to see if any fluid was present? This is would have been done with a needle or syringe.
