Riley Not Eating Again

December 23rd, 2016 at 10:01 pm

Our cat Riley that we took to Urgent care last week is not improving. She ate for several days, but as of today she isn't eating again. We were at our vet today. They took an xray. There is something they can see (a mass) that they can't define, so that is going to radiology to read. It is unknown when that will get read, maybe by Monday. Riley did not like the vet palpitating her abdomen at all.

In the meantime, more fluids were given. And we were given high protein/high energy prescription food to try. And some oral vitamin gel.

Another $400+ spent and I'm not so sure what to think. If I can't get her to eat there is going to be a problem and we may end back up at Urgent care. And then how much care do we continue?

It's pretty stressful to say the least!

    Thank you! We heard from the vet. The radiologist could only confirm there are two masses in her abdominal cavity. Riley did eat her regular food this evening and has kept it down for a few hours. This allowed me to give her antibiotic. The vet thinks she will likely make it until Monday and we can get an ultrasound. Not sure how far we'll go after that. Quite a few tears here today, as we contemplate what her future holds. We are at least feeling better that she ate today.
