It absolutely breaks my heart to hear that the little guy was just abandoned on the side of the road - thrown out like a piece of garbage. Everyday I expected to wake up to my boy gone. All 4 kittens pass gas - often, which smells horrible. Peanut, in the last month has started to make a loud noise when drinking water. He can get one bite in but then the gag and he gives up.
There are various causes for gagging and swallowing difficulties which may include infections, trauma, foreign objects usually seen on x-ray , chemical irritation, nerve damage among other causes; x-rays can be useful but an examination with a laryngoscope or even endoscopy would be more valuable if the symptoms continue as well as a swab for culture and sensitivity in case of infection. He is using the litter box quite regularly, and I see him at the water dish often. Oh he has some green in his eyes. And this unbelievable array of porno is updated hours. He now makes noise when he sleeps.
He stayed outside on a chair for 2 days during this I noticed that he would shake his head like something was caught in his teeth. But, the vet may still need to run a test, known as a fluoroscopic barium swallow, to see how your cat is swallowing. More recently it dawned on me to try a smaller kibble in case the other was just too big and hard on his aging teeth, but I find he still licks most of it and consumes very little but has a strong appetite. Just noticed some hard swallowing this past week that sometimes leads in to a wet cough.
We are trying to obtain a stool sample. Should we anticipate feeding him by hand at an elevated position for years to come? Said call again and again it took a Read more week The visit prior convenia,onsior, and subQ fluids. My boy kitty is 3 yrs old and is normally very energetic. I try to give him something different to eat every couple of hours to see if I can get him to eat. Both of these medications may need to be administered to the cat at home for up to ten days. Our vet is puzzled as he has not witnessed it himself.
If that behavior is a new one, there may be something going on with Louie's throat or mouth that needs attention. At one month, when I was starting the weaning, he was eating by himself and started coughing and making foam from nose and mouth and barely breath. Wait for the pathology report to come back and discuss the issues at night with your Veterinarian who will be able to give you more insight than myself. Could you please give us advice.
She's not eating or drinking and is gagging when tried to eat. He gets fed two whiskas pouches a day along with some biscuits when he feels like them. Very interesting to hear that you have the same combo. I dont know how concerned I should be since shes eating? He was feral until I tamed him and brought him inside a little over a year ago. She refuses dry kibble and will follow me around begging for food. Nothing stuck in throat that i can visibly see.
He is otherwise active and healthy. She has been sleeping in a cat bed next to me in my bed for 2 weeks. Eating in an upright position may help but cats are prone to aspirate their food so try more at a 45° angle. I've ordered some liquid cat food.
I trust our vet, but after hundreds of dollars worth of tests I guess I expected an actual answer as to what is wrong, as something clearly is, and hopefully a treatment. We really don't have money for a veterinarian. I hope that everything goes well for him. First off, I want to personally thank you for taking in the little kitten.
I took him to the Vet but he could find nothing wrong. He was fine until today where it seems like he is having trouble swallowing his milk and kind of spits it out. We've had him since January the 18th 2017, bred from a licensed breeder. At this point, 4 months later, they are all doing amazingly well. I have tried elevating his dish.
