My 2year old tortoishell just will not eat the canned cat foods

Customer Question

My 2year old tortoishell just will not eat the canned cat foods I try, despite getting thinner and thinner. Her eyes and breath are fine, and she does not appear to have worms. I am concerned at her lack of weight. She is drinking okay in this hot weather.

Hello Anna, I'm Dr. Deb and I'll do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this worry about your girl.
I do have a few questions to ask aobut her first, if you don't mind:

1. Does she go outside?
2. What's her history in terms of where you got her and how long you've had her?
3. Does she vomit or have any diarrhea in addition to the weight loss?
4. Does she seem lethargic?
5. Have you had her seen for this problem? Any testing done?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
