My 6 year old cat, Pia, is a alpha Maine Coon. He has never been ill before. Yesterday around 10:30, I noticed his tongue sticking out. At first, I didn't think anything of it. Then, I noticed he was drooling. He is not an affectionate cat and does not like to be held. I picked him up and he collapsed into my arms. So, I thought.. maybe I'm paranoid and went and got treats.. to which he was not responsive.
I took him to the vet. When we got there he peed in the cage which he NEVER does. He had a slight fever. They did not find anything wrong with his heart or lungs. His teeth were cleaned a few months ago and they said weren't in the best condition, but that his teeth are not the cause of the problem.
My other cat, Lady has IBD. So, we feed both of them Royal Canin Feline Intestinal. I just opened a new bag my mom had given me and noticed that it expired in August. They only could have had it once. Could this be the issue???? The bag was sealed.. Lady is not sick
Additionally, at the vet they gave Pia shots to help with his Nausea. These shots did not work. So, they gave me medicine to help at home which is not working. Upon arriving home, he peed in the cage again. The entire night he laid with me and didn't move all too much. When he tried moving, it was very evident that he was weak and struggling.
This morning he is still drooling with his tongue sticking out. He tried to make it to the bathroom to poop and couldn't get up into the box.
I am scared and do not know what to do. I razed him since I bottle fed him when I found him.
PLEASE HELP ME!!!
Also, I do not keep any plants in my home.
