Customer Question

Seems to be a loss in balance, stumbling and was hiding in a shed. Doesn't want water even though he was missing a few days.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did the cat have a fall?
Customer: Not that we saw.
JA: What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Darcy and he is 12 years old.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Darcy?
Customer: He just had a skin cancer removed from his head and it had grown into the underlying tissue but the vet thought she had it all.

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 12 months ago.

Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Can you share a video of the stumbling you're seeing?
2) When did this begin?
3) What is the ambient temperature outside at your home?
4) Is he coming home every day or has he been missing for a few days?
5) Any history of injury or illness?
