rebel my cat
nailhead posted:
My cat is 8 years old. He already used his 9 lives up. He wont eat. He taste or looks at his food and makes a scarey cat growel noise. He is not himself. He has never done this before.This has started a week ago. What is wrong with my buddy
Sandy Willis, DVM, DACVIM responded:
Hi Nailhead,
There are so many causes for not eating, termed anorexia. The most common causes are something wrong with the gastrointestinal system, stomach or small bowel, but there are really so many causes. And the important thing to know about cats: they are susceptible to developing a fatty liver syndrome if they don't eat or don't eat enough. Your veterinarian would look for causes based on their exam, but sometimes we need blood work to look at the organs, sometimes xrays to look at the stomach and intestines, to find out what is wrong while we try to get them feeling better again with supportive care, like fluids, stomach protectants, appetite stimulants, etc. Dental disease is rarely a cause of not eating. So, it is hard to tell you what is wrong because it could be many things. You can try some warmed canned food, a little tuna juice on top might make it more tasty, but you will really have to see a veterinarian if that doesn't work. Let us know what you find out. Dr. Sandy
