Ask the Veterinarian/my cats sick
Hi. I think my cat is sick but idk what's wrong with her. I have looked up everything Ican and have done all kinds of research but I still haven't gotten any answers. My cat is 13 years old and has been spayed Irescued her from apaw when Iwas 3 years old. About a onth or so ago I've noticed that something was wrong with her and have kept a close ey on her but the last few days she's only gotten worse and I'm extremely worried. She is only skin and bones and is sooo light. She won't drink and she was drinking A LOT before. She also won't eat. Before she would eat a little but it was hard on her teeth so Iadded water to her food to soften it but now she won't even eat that. I have warmed up milk and sugar and warmed up canned cat food as well and she won't eat or drink either one. I haven't really seen her use the bathroom either and she looks like it hurts her to walk. She is really tired and won't move much and has the worst time breathing. She wheezes and breathes really deep labored breaths. Her breath smells also. What Idont understand though is her eyes are nice and bright, her coat is smooth sshiny and healthy and her nose is cool and slightly wet she hadn't started getting runny eyes till today either. I don't know what to do to help her. Please help me Ireally need some advice and Iwant to know what's wrong with her and if Ican fix her.
You need to take your cat to a veterinary clinic on Monday or to an emergency clinic today. She is very ill, seriously ill, and there is little you can do by yourself that will help her.
Increased thirst indicates kidney disease, then when it is severe they may drink less.
It can also indicate diabetes, cushings and other serious illnesses.
I would strongly suggest you find an integrative veterinarian with whom to work to give her the very best chance. Also, you could get Reiki and Deena Spears started on her.
An integrative veterinarian is trained in many different approaches, including using conventional drugs only when absolutely needed. Working with one can increase the chance that your cherished companion can live a long and healthy life after recovering from this current problem. There are good ones and great ones, and a few homeopathic veterinarians will consult by phone or email. Read my comments at the end on working with and selecting a holistic veterinarian.
You can go to the web sites for each type of holistic practice and use their referral list to find one near to you:
1. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine: www.IVAS.org & www.TCVM.com
2. Homeopathic veterinarians (these can often help you by phone if no other holistic practitioners are nearby that you like): www.theAVH.org and www.DrPitcairn.com.
3. Chiropractor - www.animalchiropractic.org
4. Wide range of other treatments: www.AHVMA.org, American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association
If you wish to consult with me by telephone, go to my website and read about my practice.
From the book, Healthy Animal's Journal - "Reiki: Personally, I think every person who lives with or works with animals must know at least Level I Reiki. The practitioner places her hands upon the animal (or it can be done from a distance, even around the world) with the intent for healing to occur. The energy flows through the healer into the animal. This is based on directly applying Chi (energy) to rebalance the energy field so it no longer needs to produce the physical symptoms. It is a very good adjunct to any healing modality, especially to relieve pain and inflammation. I have seen cats who begin to eat again when their food has Reiki done on the food. It also "takes the bad out of" things. By doing Reiki on smelly water in restaurants I have been able to drink sweet tasting and smelling water. Use Reiki anytime that you must give injections, vaccines, drugs, flea or heartworm drugs, or other substances with potential toxicity. Do you work in a grooming salon, or kennel, or veterinary clinic, or barn or anywhere animals are being seen? Use your Reiki on any treatments to be given and to calm the animals. People have reported getting animals to eat by doing Reiki on their food. http://www.reiki.org
