Yesterday, I had another cat not eating. The first cat was the one-eyed cat that did not eat for 5 days and recovered after treatment for a kidney infection as shown by blood tests and palpation of swollen kidneys. The kidneys were 3x the normal ones.
Now this 2nd cat had poor appetite for the last 3 days after being boarded for 2 weeks with a friend as the owner was overseas. What's the problem? The rectal temperature was 36.6 C and the cat was dehydrated. Her right eye was tearing but the left was OK. So, what's the problem?
It is hard to say. I asked Dr Daniel to come in to take blood and gave the IV drip. The cat clawed anyone and so needed to be given anaesthesia gas. She recovered the next day. When the Caucasian couple who boarded this cat came to take her home today, the cat was eating the A/D canned food and this was the best evidence of recovery.
