Cookie has been ill just over a month now, at first she began to vomit frequently after eating (which at the time I put it down to her eating grass in the garden) which then led to weight loss and not going to the toilet, and generally acting under the weather, so she was taken to the vets for full blood tests, all of which were normal. The vet that took these tests was really unproffessional so we transferred to another, who took more bloods and X-rays - which revealed the problem.
Cookies left lung was almost entirely white, which explained her abdominal breathing. The new vet initially thought that her lung had burst and that euthanasia was the only fair option, however I opted for a chest tap instead which nothing came out of.
She stayed at the vets the weekend on fluids, diuretics and antibiotics and she reportedly had some improvement to her lung the following day, she came home 2 days later with these meds - this was over a week ago and there has been no improvement, she's wasting away.
She now weighs 2kg down from 3kg and has shown no interest in eating today. She vomitted large amounts of mucus on Monday, which the vet said could be for a simple or serious reason. I'm getting to the point where euthanasia may be the kindest option because a diagnosis STILL hasn't been reached; I've been told her lung had ruptured, that she has cancer, that it could be fluid or pus or a diaphragmatic hernia, I simply don't know what to do.
Has anyone had a cat with similar problems? I really don't want to let Cookie go :(
