    Jaundice in cat!

    I completely forgot to reply! Unfortunately, William was put to sleep a few hours after my last update. His liver suddenly failed and he was in a comatose state, not even responding to the vets. I decided it was the best decision as I didn't want him in pain and suffering 🙁. I'm glad I made that...

    Jaundice in cat!

    It's technically still Sunday hours because it's Bank Holiday in the UK so he's still at the emergency vets. He needs to eat or show signs of any improvement before they even consider doing anything else ad the prognosis is so poor. I'm just hoping, but I want him to be okay more than anything.

    Jaundice in cat!

    Well they said they've been trying to feed him different foods and I even left some stuff there for him, but he isn't touching it. He had an appetite for his treats and that's it. No talk of feeding tube as the prognosis is so poor, they just don't think he has any chances. The liver enzymes are...

    Jaundice in cat!

    There's no chance at the moment, but they're keeping him in for another 12 hours so that we know if there's going to be any change. I guess they just want to give him a chance. He's still not eating. If he just ate some food we would know there's a chance, but I don't want to be selfish. Hoping...

    Jaundice in cat!

    Thank you for your kind words. I did ask the vet/nurses what the values were and they vaguely explained, but they are operating on emergency only so phone call was brief. They did tell me the enzyme was the worst one, but other values were low too (most of them I believe). At The moment, they're...

    Jaundice in cat!

    I did mention that to the vet and he told me that their goal is to flush it all out of his system with the IV and other fluids, but they can't tend to him as much as you did eith the kitty since emergency only. They're obviously concerned about his levels, but I'm hoping that everything will be...

    Jaundice in cat!

    I'm glad your kitty ended up okay! It definitely sounds like a complicated case, but that comes with the age I guess. Mine's quite young (he's 6 and a half ish) and apparently they considered things like poisoning or ingesting something harmful that caused this, but I don't know. I can't...

    Jaundice in cat!

    Thank you so much. I'm just staying positive for him so that I can help as much as I can, but I hope he's got it in him to fight this. Thank you for your kind words!

    Jaundice in cat!

    Hi! He's 6 going on 7 now. It's been confirmed now that he's anemic and it's his liver hence the jaundice. The liver levels are very poor since they're over 1000 and it should be 100 or under - about 10x the normal levels. I've been told to prepare and be realistic, but we've decided to keep him...

    Jaundice in cat!

    Wow, that's incredible. You're an absolute hero for saving that poor kitty when it had no one! It's been confirmed that my poor kitty has anemia and liver issues (that explains the jaundice. However, the results are very poor, but he's better than you'd imagine. His liver levels are over 1000...

    Jaundice in cat!

    I noticed today that my cats gums are yellow so I took him to the vets asap and they're currently doing blood tests. I'm very concerned about him because I know this is serious. Initially, I took him to the vets yesterday because he was throwing up his food that was mainly digested and wouldn't...

    Can't keep food down

    Gosh, tell me about it! It's always something with these furry monsters. The vet actually suggested doing that, just giving him boiled chicken and fish in case it's a stomach thing. He seems better after an anti-sickness injection, but still no clue. My bet is on the hairball! He had me worrying...

    Can't keep food down

    He's an indoor cat, but he relaxes in the garden sometimes. He recently ran through a gap into my neighbours yard so I thought he ate something toxic, but he's fine other than not keeping the food down. He has an appetite, just throws it up along with gagging.

    Can't keep food down

    Thank you. I'll be sure to mention that as I have an appointment later on. He's almost 2 years old. He has an appetite, but just can't keep the food down for some reason.

    Can't keep food down

    I do have to say I'm glad he's doing it in the litterbox! I haven't heard of giving kefir though, but that's sounds like a good idea. I didn't k is it was so beneficial! I gave him the yoghurt to sort of "wean him" to eventually eat more solid foods (which he did) but he just threw everything...

    Can't keep food down

    I noticed my cats was dry heaving and throwing up colourless liquid with a bit of foam (occasionally) and thought he had a hairball. However, I found some thrown up food in the litter box twice now (I don't know why there). He didn't want to eat as if he was scared to almost? I managed to get...

    Unexplained weight loss in cats

    I recently posted about my cat that has been losing weight, but is acting normal. He's eating, drinking and even meowing to go outside. He's been tested for FIV, FeIV and hypothyroidism and it's all clear. However, the vet said he had a high fever and gave him antibiotics and anti-inflammatory...

    Cat sides caved in - any help??

    Thank you everyone for your replies. I considered both worms and an over reactive thyroid as issues. I've changed vets today since the others were adamant there was absolutely nothing wrong. He has an appointment tomorrow so I'll mention my concerns.

    Cat sides caved in - any help??

    I noticed my 6 year old cat has been appearing slimmer than usual over the summer. He always loses quite a bit of his winter weight during the summer and quite a bit of his coat too, but it seems like it's more than he should have. His side's appear to be more caved in, but everything is...

    Cat looks very out of it

    It would definitely make sense! I've never seen any of my cats act this way and they've been given these medications in the past. They had wide eyes and such, but not this strange. He seemed almost like he was freaked out by certain things. He's calming down a little now as I've been keeping a...
