December 1 - took our cat to the vet as she was having diarrhea, but very small quantities - she was also vomitting and quickly becoming very dehydrated. We took her to the vet - she spent the night - was given an xray where they found fecal material built up in the colon cavity. She was given an enema and sent home the next day. Seemed fine the day we got her home. 36 hours later - same symptoms - trying to poop but very small quantities - no appetite. Took her back to the vet, he prescribed antibiotics - she helped her appetite and she began eating again, but still very little poop (sometimes none at all). She finished the antibiotics, stopped eating again - still same pooping thing. I took her back at which point she again is getting very dehydrated. She was given an anti-diarrhoetic - which did nothing at all for her. I brought her back the next day - the vet said without spending about $300 more on testing (we have already spent $400) there is not much that can be done and even after spending the additional for testing - doesn't mean we won't have to put her down anyway. She is 10 years old and it seems no matter which way we look at it, we will have to put her down. Anyone out there with a similar experience, who might be able to offer some advice (I so desperately want her to live). Thank you!!
