length of feline coma
Our Maine Coon cat got ill last week, and on Fri. stopped eating. He would only drink the juice I drained off canned salmon. On Sat. I called several vets, which were all closed. One I did get in contact with told me to take him to the pound. We don't know what happened or how old Babe is, we took him in as a stray a few yrs. ago. Sat. he slowed down on his drinking, and Sun. he went into a coma. His heart is beating slowly, but there is no response at all. Hubby said we will take him to the vet tomorrow when they open. This has made me a basket case, blaming myself for not being more aware. He was an inside/outside kitty, and stayed in every night. Anyone know how long a coma usually lasts in a cat. Does anyone know why they charge so much for euthensia? Here it is $140, and you are not allowed to be with the kitty. Any help will be appreciated.
