Very sick cat

722 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Snowdancer
2 yr old and perfect health Friday. Sat. morning was droopy and barfing, plus diarrea. No blood in either. Took to vet and he gave some pills for stomach trouble. Today is much worse. Vet said no fever and nose still cool. Just sits almost lifeless. Drinks lots of water if offered but no food. Any ideas? FB

Poisoning?? Did she/he get into some rat poison or antifreeze?
Sorry I can't be of much help and I hope your cat is doing better by tomorrow.
I was thinking antifreeze, too, but the vet should know. The antidote for antifreeze poisoning is ethanol ( e.g. vodka) but it might be too late for that by now. I would call and talk to the vet. Hope kitty gets better.
I would call the vet back right away. Don't wait for it to get worse. Tell him she is worse instead of better and they you believe it is an emergency.
Is it possible that she could have eaten chocolate, onions, or gotten a hold of some type of Christmas decoration like tensil? That happens alot this time of year.

Has she had all of her shots, wormers, etc.?

I would call the vet as soon as possible.
Hope she gets well soon. :(
Thanks for the comments and ideas. Sorry to report the cat died at 2 am this morning of undetermined cause. FB
Sorry to hear that! I'd maybe look for another vet! :p
I'm sorry about your cat. :(

When you feel like it, I'd still check for a source of poison in case there's other pets in your household.
