Customer Question

My cat has not eaten properly for the last few days and just sits hunched up looking rather uncomfortable. This morning, he jumped up to a kitchen counter and missed is footing. He fell back onto the floor with no apparent injury. He is aged 13.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Can you tell me if Stan has been passing urine normally? Any straining?

Any gagging, retching, lip licking, drooling or vomiting?

Any changes to his drinking?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?
