1170. A British Shorthair vomits for the past 10 months and become thinner. Why?

Nov 15, 2013

British Shorthair, F,S, 5 years old. Spayed.
A gentle cat with bright yellow eyes.
Just get thinner and thinner. Vomits grey + brown stuff (would be grey hairballs and dry food) occasionally. The rectal temp dropped below 38C yesterday.

"It is not possible to come to a diagnosis without blood tests, urine tests and  X-rays," I said. Vomiting for many months can be weaken the cat and cause death. So, there is a need to do the lab tests. A lot of time spent talking to the young couple. The cat does lick toilet floor water over the years and this may harm her kidneys.

Blood test - urea below normal. Creatinine is normal though.




Advice:
Hygiene. Keep toilet floor dry. Quarantine cat to clean area
