Hi everyone, I’m pretty desperate so I hope posting it here will help. I have a 2 years old Siamese, she’s FIV+, her name is Pickle. Recently my other cat has tapeworm, so I suspect Pickle would have it too, because they both haven’t been dewormed yet. So I brought them both to the vet. Got them de-worm medicine, which the vet already gave to them at clinic, so I don’t have to give it to them at home. I thought everything would be ok after, but Pickle won’t eat her dinner that day. She sniffed the food and walked away. Sometimes she comes back because she’s definitely hungry, gave it a few licks but would not grab the food with her mouth. Only lick, so basically she didn’t eat anything. I always feed them both wet and dry mixed together. The other cat eats fine after the vet, so I don’t think it’s necessarily the medicine, but maybe stress. Within the next two days, I tried to feed her some food, she ate very little, but still a little bit, with great effort. She eats treats fine, so I’m not sure if her mouth even hurts. BUT I did notice, after the vet trip, the treat would fall out of her mouth, and there would be some crumbs, and same with her food as well. She doesn’t go to the water fountain to drink, so I have to pour some water into the bottle cap, and have her lick it. Very little water, but at least it’s something. We started freaking out and brought her to the vet 2 days after. They looked at her teeth (which they mentioned back then that she does have some gingivitis, but it’s very little and not serious yet). They said her teeth look normal, breathing is normal, she’s not greatly dehydrated. Oh and she licks her lips a LOT, meaning she has nausea, so they gave her a shot for antinausea. And some fluids for dehydration. Told us to monitor her for another day, and if it doesn’t improve then come back, because not eating can damage her liver. So that night, she wouldn’t eat still. I spoon fed her, and she ate almost everything, almost. Pickle had always been a fat ass, she eats her food AND her sister’s food. Never says no to food. But we were glad she at least ate the food last night, like actual chewing, and not just licking. Food still falls out of her mouth sometimes, but it’s a lot better. We thought she would be back to normal in the morning, but this morning she refuses to eat as well. So I’m frustrated. I’ve looked up this topic before and lots of people had their cats not eating, and they ended up having cancer or something real serious after spending thousands of dollars at the vet. I’m so worried, Pickle is my first ever cat, and not to mention FIV+. Both my cats are indoor. I just hope she’s only traumatized from the first vet visit (they gave her 1.5 pill for tapeworm, liquid med for general worm, and a dose of liquid med for diarrhea, AND ear flushing and ear medicine in that one vet visit). I hope she’s just being picky and psychological, and nothing real serious. If you read this far, thanks so much! If there’s anything please let me know. Any replies would be greatly appreciated. If by tomorrow Pickle doesn’t improve, I’ll take her to the vet again to do blood works. Hope everything will be okay. I can’t imagine life without Pickle, I’ve only had her for 6 months.
