Coco dosent want to Eat

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Coco is my old Cat with the Bladder Infection. She dosent want to eat but drinks water. What can I do about it?
post #2 of 25
Is she being treated right now for the infection with antibiotics? How long has it been since she's eaten? Has she had any senior bloodwork done?

She is on Clavamox but it makes her throw up sometimes. She is on her 4th box of it. Its a Bad infection.

It's probably making her nauseous, but she needs to eat something. You could try baby food (Gerber, #2, meat, pureed - no garlic or onion.)

poor thing, I know the clavamox can upset the kitty tummies.

When my baby wouldn't eat I gave her KLM, (kitten milk), and/or mixed it in with her wet food to make it soupy. I also got her Weruva, it's mostly soupy and she seemed to be able to keep it down pretty well.

but, when she wouldn't eat on her own I syringe fed her. you may want to consider this, ask your vet. They'll usually give you a syringe that's appropriate for the job for free.

Off topic, a bit...

Isn't Weruva great? I wish I could afford to feed it to my 5 cats... Right now it's for a treat...

Where do I get that at. We do not have that Store here. As soon as I gave her the Clavamox tonight she threw it up. I will talk to the Vet.

I forgot to tell you she is on CD.

I got her to eat the other food a little but it isnt good for her. She refuses teh Cd. She hs been on it over a year already. Does Clavamox make them lose their tatse?

It can make them nauseous.. It makes Chase really sick, he can't be given anything with amoxicillin in it anymore at all, including clavamox. Your best bet would be asking if the vet can give him something for the possible upset tummy/nausea or possibly think about changing the antibiotic altogether..

Our kitties are on CD diets, and when our one kitty was so sick he wouldn't eat, the vet told us to try the baby food. We bought Gerber's Chicken baby food - it has no additives, and chicken is pretty easy on a kitty's tummy.

If she won't eat this, try boiling plain chicken, nothing added. Since she's drinking water, she may drink the plain chicken stock. It's important that she eat - if it's been a couple of days, I'd get her to the vet ASAP.

Sending vibes that she feels better soon!

Thanks,
I got her to eat the other Cats food but she refuses the CD still. We are caling teh Vet tomorrow. I hope they are open.

my baby was very finicky while on the clavamox. I bought a variety of canned and let her eat pretty much whatever she would eat. Better than nothing. They carry a prescription canned Science Diet at the vet, and while I HATE the ingredients, it's stinky and cats love it. Even if their tummy is yucky they'll usually eat pretty well on it.
ask your vet

We called the Vet it is closed until Weds. I hate giving her the other Cats food because she has te Bladder Infection. Today she is Playing. I wonder if its the Clavamox.

clavamox will make your kitty nauseous.

have you tried putting kitty caviar on her food? I've never seen a cat deny it.

The Vet gave her cephalexin today. She has to take it for 2 weeks and then another test. She ate the CD today bus has not at the meds yet. I will give them tonight.
post #18 of 25
does kitty have to get meds twice a day? or just once?

maybe if she jut has to get them once you can give it after the evening meal? just a thought...

She has to have it twice a day and she barfed some tonight again. All tehat came up was some not the food she ate. She sure gets sick from alot of Meds.

Yeah, at this point while kitty is on an antibiotic that would fight off the bladder infection I wouldn't worry about what you feed her just as long as she eats! I also have one kitty that had bladder issues and was on the cd.
If you have a wal-mart, go to the pet section and pick up some NaturalLife canned food! Good ingredients, THEY LOVE IT! Even my picky eater LOVES it... It is a little bit more expensive at like $.80 a can! Not too bad though... Kitties eat it really well and look forward to it each day. Ive had some recent sick kitty issues too! I wish you luck! Please keep us posted!

I think we just miss each other. Coco first got sick when she was 9.5 with Fia 3 weeks after Lucy died. It was in 2001 right after the Wtc. We went to the Er Vet and they put a Flag Bandana on her. They had no idea what was wrong at first. They thought maybe Diebetis . She had fur missing and fell over and was only 4 Pounds then. I didnt have her with me then because I was in a place that said no Pets. She lived at my Dads. She was in the vet almost a week then. She stayed in Er until 8am then we took her to our Vet and they found what she had. I had to have them all checked for Fia but al were Neg. The Er had even said to maybe have her pts. She is almost 16 now and has not had Anemia since then. She has had 2 Terrible Colds and the Bladder Problems and bad Arthitis and Asthma. I think taht Cold might have went in her bladder because she had that bad Cold first and it got better fast. Then she got the infection. Could the Pred shot make her get a infection.

Hope your kitty starts to feel better! It's so hard to feel so helpless when your furbaby is sick and meds you have to give them only make them feel sicker.

It must be a Strong Med. I smell it when she pees.
