Customer Question
We had our cat...

We had our cat at the vet to day because he was throwing up. They diagnosed him with ear infections but also said he may have a feline disorder from getting into a fight with a feral cat that we have been fostering. He just had diarrhea and his paw pads are cold. They gave him anti nauseous med

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the cat eat anything unusual?

We were not sure. He was trying to chew on some plastic bread bags but did not bite any part off

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name and age?

Frodo and he is four

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

He has a seresto collar on because he is allergic to fleas. He is being very secluded he usually sleeps with my son and follows him every where

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years.

Did the Vet feel it was FIV that your cat may have aquired from the other cat?

Can you explain what your concerns are?

I posted this earlier, but it seems it disappered when I went to post.

Joan

What Customers are Saying:

The response from the Expert literally saved my cat's life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart -- I will recommend all of my friends to you!!!

LuciaRincon, Georgia

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.
