Ask a Cat Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, I can help you with your question today.
How old is your kitty?
she is nearly two
OK, when you look at her gums and inside her ears, does she seem yellow or jaundiced at all?
just one moment please until I check
no her gums and ears look normal colour
Although it is unusual to see in a cat her age, I think it is a good idea to have some blood work checked for her.
I'm concerned about the possibility of an underlying illness.
she tries to play but doesn't seem to have any energie at all
I did have her to my vet but she did not do a blood test
Yes, I think it would be best to check major organ function including liver and kidneys, blood glucose level, and electrolytes.
ok I will get that checked out
what do you think it could be
Based on your description, I'm worried about pancreatitis, liver disease, or even early kidney disease.
Has she ever been tested for feline leukemia and FIV?
I believe she had all her injections for that when she was very small
We generally do not vaccinate for FIV, and not all cats are vaccinated for feline leukemia virus.
It's another thing to keep in the back of our minds. When her blood screening is done, I would also make sure your vet checks her for those two viruses.
ok I will check with my vet and thank you for the infomation
You're welcome! Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek.
that will be all thank you
