They took a blood test and said that his kidneys may not be working right, and then charged me a weeks wages. My question is this, 'has anyone had a similar experience, not the large cost but the symptoms of my cat'? I did think that someone might have put down weed killer or snail pellets and my cat somehow ingested it. Maybe there might be another thought on the subject.
Thank you in advance for any info.
Hello Mr. Ed...
I see you just joined yesterday, so obviously you wanted help for your kitties. I read your profile and obviously you are an animal lover.
I am sorry about your visit to the vet and being told they have "no idea" what is wrong with him....except that his kidneys "might" not be working right.
Any chance of you getting a second opinion? That diagnois sounded very nebulous to me and I question it. But...don't get of going on bad vets.
I don't know how close you are to this kitty or whether the kitty is suffering. Is the kitty drinking water and still eating?
Yes, I agee...kitty sounds very sick. You will be getting many other people on this forum to try to get you through this.....people that have been on this forum for a very long time.
Good luck and please let us know how everything turns out....and...welcome to the Forum.
