Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi, I can help you with your question today.
No, this doesn't sound like cancer.
This sounds consistent with two different conditions that are common in older cats: hyperthyroidism and diabetes mellitus.
If I had to guess, I think she has hyperthyroidism. This is actually quite treatable once we have a diagnosis.
Have you noticed any change in her about of thirst or urination? Does she have any issues with vomiting?
I think she does seem to drink a bit more she is sometimes sick but not every day
OK. This sounds very much like thyroid disease.
It can be very well managed with daily medication called methimazole.
I highly recommend having her evaluated by your local vet. I would start with a physical exam and senior screening bloodwork.
This may be enough to diagnose hyperthyroidism (occasionally we need additional thyroid testing).
Once we start medication at the appropriate dose, I expect to see dramatic improvement.
many thanks, ***** ***** a appointment tomorrow.
