Customer Question
Diagnosed with a tumor...

Diagnosed with a tumor behind his eye. It's been since march 6. He's been eating, and acting completely normal.. so pain killers seems to be the best route up till now. He's crying at night. It may just be because we were away on holidays for a week and just got back. But he's not really acting the same. The crying at night, the little fights with our other cat and him being overly effeftionate is not the norm. He's a super lovely cat to begin with but this is over the top, in your face kinda stuff

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the cat's name?

Hunter

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Hunter?

He was born sometime in 2003, so he's no spring chicken. But our vet says he's very healthy otherwise. I just want some advice as to when it's time to let him go, or signs.. so he doesn't suffer

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.
