Sick kitty with fluid on stomach, wont eat raw, any ideas??
My mothers cat has decreased in health the past couple of weeks. She is never off her food and usually eats 100 small meals a day and would constantly meow if she heard any package or tin being opened.. but suddenly hardly eating anything, she wont eat anything raw, she wont eat cooked meat, she wont eat dry food, she wont eat canned food. The only thing she seems to be eating little amounts of is pouched wet food, it is mainly jelly with only tiny amount of what resembles meat, she is eating the jelly but leaving the meat. So that tells me she is just going for the water content?
My mother took her to the vet and they said that there is nothing seriously wrong with her, that she seems to have eaten something that disagrees with her as she has abit of fluid on her stomach. They also said not to worry that she is hardly eating or drinking and that its more of a worry if she was overeating and drinking.
I can communicate with animals but as im close to her finding it hard to get anything other than her telling me her symptoms and her shoulders are highlighting but not her stomach. Im still waiting for feedback from others. She feels dizzy, weak, and like all her energy has been taken. She is shaking as she walks and like if you sat on a roundabout then somebody tried to make you walk. She feels nausea nearly all of the time and she is sleeping almost constantly. Then occassionally like today she will just wake up and go downstairs and act like she wants to go out but she is almost walking into wall etc so I wont let her even though she wants to do.
I had a google and it seems that cats get fluid on their stomachs when either it is a tumor or hypoglymia
Im unsure what I can do for her as I know that raw will cure her but its just trying to get her to eat it, its taken something like this to happen to get my mother to consider putting her on a raw diet and im just worried that it will be too late.
Do any of you know of anything else we could try to get her to eat. Probably the worst time to get her to try eating when she feels sick and then her body will be detoxing so will make her feel even worse. But maybe some type of herbal medicine?
I offered her wheatgrass and catnip, I would of thought if it was a 'stomach upset' that she would want to eat these things to feel better :/
She is going back to the vets on monday to have blood tests and im trying to encourage them to get her scanned if nothing shows.
