Ask a Cat Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
When we are talking about such a young kitten, they need to be eaten 4-6 times a day.
So not eating is a real concern, even if for a short time.
While you saw the vet yesterday, if there has been a worsening, I would 100% advise another vet visit today.
We need to ensure the kitten is not dehydrated and does not have low blood sugar.
I would also be keen to worm them.
Not eating is a red flag and we need to determine why this is happening.
They may need some medicine such as antibiotics or an anti inflammatory.
While it is less likely these tablets are the culprit, the active ingredient Nitenpyram is more toxic to younger and smaller cats, so do bring the packaging with you to show the vet, in case they think it is playing a role.
Absolutely, a vet visit as soon as possible is sensible given how young the kitten is.
Not at all.
This window will stay open so you are very welcome to update me and ask any more questions you have.
Fingers crossed he is back to normal very soon.
The best advice I can give is that the little one needs to see a vet today. We need to determine what is going on and he may well need iv fluids and prescription medicine.
At home, offer warm chicken and rice little and often and plenty of fresh water. Let him rest and monitor closely for signs such as vomiting or diarrhoea.
