Mass in abdomen?
One of our kitties (male, 11, neutered) has been losing weight and has had a ravenous appetite along with the weight loss. I took him to the vet today, fully expecting for him to be diagnosed with hyperthyroid or diabetes, but during the exam the vet felt a mass in his abdomen.
She had me feel it, it feels soft, sort of like a bunch of fat. She took an x-ray, it looks like a long, wide mass obscuring the bladder and the intestines. We have an appointment for an ultrasound next Wednesday.
I am totally shocked, we just lost our 12 year old Baby who was suffering from IBD, and now this. She said there was a small chance it could be a huge abscess, but considering his weight loss and the fact that his temperature was almost normal, and his blood work completely normal, she does not think so. Have any of you guys had a similar situation, and if so, how did it turn out?
