Our cat has lost a lot of weight but wants to eat

Customer Question

Our cat has lost a lot of weight but wants to eat constantly. He has had several blood tests that show he does NOT have an over active thyroid. They also used blood samples to check kidney and liver problems but seem fin. The last few days he's had a dark substance coming from the inner corner of one eye and now today, both eyes. I have cleaned with warm water a few times a day and apart from trying to get away he doesn't seem to be in any pain and he is a very vocal cat by nature. He has a heart murmur which was detected at a young age, he is now 15years. Any idea what could be wrong, please? Thanks, April

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

How long has he had these signs?

Does he have loose stools? Any vomiting?

What do you feed him?

Any changes to the eyeballs (ie clouding, hazing, damage, swelling)?
