cat with jaundice

dragonflycatDecember 15, 2009

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for some advice from anyone who has had a similar experience. My 9 year old cat has developed jaundice and is with the vet for 3 days now. He has redydrated him and is just nursing him back with different foods. Any idea how long his recovery will take? I'm afraid once he gets back home he might have another relapse. This has been ongoing for about a month.

I'm sorry to hear that your cat is ailing. Unfortunately, it's impossible to predict how your cat may respond to treatment or his long term prognosis without knowing what triggered the jaundice. Has your vet done any testing to determine the underlying cause of the jaundice? There are several different types of jaundice with a number of different possible causes. The following link will give you a brief overview.

Jaundice is a symptom, not a disease. Do you know what disease your cat has? Some are easier to cure than others- some are not curable at all. I hope your cat has an easily fixed problem.
