    Default My cat's very sick, not eating, sleeping a lot...any suggestions?

    He is 17 years old and stopped eating on his own about 3 weeks ago, dropping a lot of weight. He was eating BARF patties when he lost his appetite. He was also very constipated until I changes his diet to fresh raw red meat and he'll eat this when I hand feed him. He is no longer constipated and is taking about 70 grams a day.

    The vet found he was anemic and had very low blood pressure. He doesn't have feline leukemia, feline AIDS or kidney problems.

    Thorough blood tests revealed he was bleeding internally. Full body X-rays did not show any obvious bleeds or tumors but did show a thickening of the small intestine.

    Fecal tests were normal.

    He is now on anabolic steroids to pep him up and give him an appetite. His appetite is stronger but he'll only eat when i hand feed him.

    We are treating his symptoms but I'm still wondering if there is anything else we can do.

    I'm no vet but that you have there is a very stubborn cat, unless................. Do you spend a lot of time with him, maybe he just wants to feel close to you or loved so that is why he ONLY eats out of your hand(s)? Do you or anyone else feed him human food? Do you let him out of the house, he might have eat or licked something(s) bad. I really know nothing these are just my guesses so yup. But really I don't think it is appropriate to say there is no hope, if more people had a cat they would know how much you love them and care for them. Oh and also has he had surgery?

    Has your pet visited the vet recently? Is he an outdoor cat? If he hasn't and isn't, he could have drunken anti freeze found in cars. It tastes sweet to them and so they like it and keep drinking more. It gives them kidney failure. Also, one of my cats died from drinking anti freeze and was not eating and sleeping alot, so just to give you a heads up, maybe its that, or he is near death, or just not feeling well. I hope he gets better!

    It's great that he doesn't have kidney problems. It sounds like you're doing everything you can for him under a vet's supervision. There's a drug for anemia called erythropoietin but I think it's used for cats that also have chronic renal failure. It may not interact well with steriods. Don't listen to the other posters that say your cat is just old. My cat died of kidney failure at almost 17 years and I mistakenly assumed that some of his symptoms were related to old age which was not true. By the time I took him to the vet he had so many complications that it was tough for the vet to treat all the issues at the same time. You're taking great care of your cat. I hope he lives a long life.
