Try an experiment with your Jade....So, we have visited few other vets. He got pain medication and medication which helps with nausea. Neither of them had any effect. The vet said that there really doesn't seem to be anything wrong with him but next thing we should try is getting him to ultrasound. But all the vets in town are once again not available for at least for an week. But yeah so all I know for now is that:
It's not caused because he is nauseous.
It's not cause because he is in pain.
It's not caused because he has organ damage or an infection (no fever and all blood test results normal)
It's propably not caused because he has eaten something wrong (his stool is normal)
Symptoms he has at the moment.
Not eating almost at all, I have to feed him forcefully. Treats he eats by himself.
He is drinking bit more than usually.
He is bit more tired than usually, but he still has energy to play.
What I think may have caused it
He may have gotten something stuck in his nose, like cat litter or something so he can't smell. Or he may have some stomach bug that just takes some time to get better. That's all I can really think of. I don't know what to do. I may have to bring him to other town for other vet if this does not get any better. I just don't want to stress him out too much.
Thank you for your kind words. Jade appreciates them . Small update on how we are doing. Jade got the antibiotics and the medication for nausea. No effect. He is still acting like his own self but no appetite at all. He eats about 2 spoonfuls of tuna or a/d vet food in the morning. Nothing during the day and at evening 3-4 raw chicken pieces. Sometimes a chicken heart too. I' am so stressed. He now fears the food bowl because he knows that I will force him to eat and hides every time I lift the bowl to put food in it. I have 1 week holiday from work and I pretty much just sit home with him and try to get him to eat 24/7. All the vets say he is completely healthy, all the other kittens from his litter are healthy (I asked the breeder). One thing the vet did say is that perhaps it's the hormones that are starting to affect his body and just make him lose his appetite. I just, have no idea what to do anymore.
He is bit more restless than usually. He play fights with my other cat more than usually. He even growls to him for time to time which he hasn't done before. (Yes I am sure it is still play fighting, they are like each other). He barely eats anything. I called the vet who actually seemed annyoed that I called. Just told me that scince all the bloodwork and x-ray pictures are fine there is nothing wrong with him. He just isn't hungry and I should stop worrying. Now I know that sometimes I worry too much, but it isn't healthy for him to only eat about 3 spoonfuls a day. And he wouldn't eat even that amount if I wasn't putting it right in front of his nose.
I am so scared because I have lost cat before to FIP. The first symptoms were loss of appetite, nausea and tiredness. Though unlike Jade, his bloodwork were abnormal and he was very tired and lethargic, Jade still acts normally, drinks normally and goes to litter box normally. I'm kinda running out of ideas what to do with him.
I would think that Jade not being neutered, yet, would cause him to act a bit 'more wild'...and at times be a 'bit more aggressive'...but to actually 'not want to eat'...is still a bit strange,...even if his 'hormones are affecting his body'...according to that one Vet.Not neutered yet.
Thanks for the update and glad to hear Jade is eating better. You may want to look into purchasing a baby scale or a small animal digital pet scale to get a more accurate weight for him.But anycase, he is eating better now and I'm happy about that. I have to buy a scale to check his correct weight, but I was holding him while I was standing on a scale and if I counted the weight right, I don't think there was any changes.
