Sick Cat. Won't eat after 1 week.
I took my healthy, never sick cat (age 3 yrs)to the emergency vet June 26th (Saturday night). He spent 5 days in the hospital, on iv fluid and iv antibiotics. He had a 107.4 temp, and his liver enzymes were over 8 thousand. Yes, you read that right. After an ultrasound they saw his small intestine was inflamed. They decided this is what caused his liver elevations. Ok, so after the HUUUGGEEE vet bill, I bring him home. I have been syringe feeding him his liver med, antibiotic, water, and the a/d food. He refuses to eat. The vet said that was normal. Um ok. He also will not use the bathroom. the vet "expressed" his bladder, and he went. They checked, nothing wrong. So any advice?? I feel helpless, and so tired from syringe feeding him every couple of hours! He's beginning to hate me! He's still quite lethargic. But he will move around, and change where he lays. Oh, and the vet said he might not want to eat and be puking because he has reflux. So we got pepcid. So far, hasn't worked.
