JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your cat will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your cat?

I​f you are really worried then I would take her to the ER and have them examine her. That way you will know she is alright for sure. Otherwise continue to monitor her for signs of a concussion. Vomiting, lack of appetite, you already know about the pupils, head tilting to one side, unable to walk a straight line, severe lethargy. If she is still fine 48 hour from now then I think she will be alright. Does that make sense to you? Do you have any other questions I may assist you with?

that makes sense.

S​o if you notice any of those concussion signs then take her into the vet. They can give medication to help reduce brain swelling. It sounds like she is stable right now. If she has a bump on her hear you can hold an ice pack on it for 20 minute intervals if she will cooperate. That should help with some of the pain and swelling if there is a bump.

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.
