|Hi. I want to apologize, as I've moved this post from the tail end of "Cats hissing at each other after going to vet" in behavior......Thanks for the great responses. While we are getting through the vet odor problem, we now have a new issue....
Pickles isn't eating. I've been through this before when she had 4 bladder stones removed. She tried and ate some Thursday (dental was Wed.) and some Friday, but Saturday no dice. I called the vet, because it had been about 12 hours with no food intake, and I know about Fatty Liver Disease.....Anyways, the vet gave me new pain meds because pain leads to a lot of irregular behavior in cats, so now we're doing Gaba for pain, a Fentanlyl (spelling?) patch and Batryl for antibiotic. Well still no eating. I've taken to spoon forcing wet food down her throat. Granted it's not her urinary kibble that she loves, but she has to get something....I can't believe she's letting me, as she's very temperamental. She's just not herself. Very jittery, not sleeping much, acting dazed, and not sleeping in her normal spots. But she IS out in the open with us, not hiding at least. She's acting very lovey, and pretends to want to eat, running to her dish, tries to chew, and spits them out. I'm just glad she's not like last time, when she was lethargic and vomiting foamy pink stuff. Tomorrow I call the vet first thing, and I'm hoping she'll let me try the leftover appetite stimulant I have from last time. It worked like a charm. 20 minutes after taking, down she ran looking for food. Wish my girl luck! Sorry about the rambling.... hug
