My cat won't eat or drink
My cat Shonen stopped eating and drinking 3 weeks ago and has lost 3 pounds. He is down to a scrawny 10 pounds and looks terrible. In the past week I've taken him to the vet 3 times. The vet took a blood sample because there were no obvious signs of illness except for slightly watery eyes and he shows signs of nausea. The vet also hydrated Shonen twice. Shonen's white count is high indicating a bacterial infection but all of the other blood panels are normal. I gave Shonen clavamox for a couple of days but it made no difference so the vet gave him a shot of pennicillian and I have a bottle of another antibiotic tablets to mix with his food. The only problem is that Shonen isn't eating or drinking and hides under my bed all day and night. I think that Shonen is totally traumatized by the whole event and is afraid to come out for fear that I'll take him to the vet again. He's also very weak and feels vulnerable. He's only 5 years old and now he doesn't have the strength to jump up on my bed. He's also an indoor cat and has never been outside the house. I have another cat who is completly normal and full of vigor.
I love this cat dearly and if anyone has any suggestions please respond.
