|Who doesn't know? The vet or your family? What did the vet say, was wrong with him?
Why is he on prednasone?
Why is he on Clavamox and Baytril? They are both antibiotics, it's usually one or the other, and Baytril is one of the stonger ones. I am not a vet or vet tech, but I never heard of being on 2 antibiotics at the same time.
Its possible, he is not feeling well and not wanting to eat, because of the meds. Who does the vet give the info to? You, your brother or your mom? If its your mom, is it possible she is not understanding, and/or not relaying the correct info to you or your brother?
I would call the vet, and get a clear understanding, of what is wrong with the kitty, and why, he is being given those meds.
Why did they do an echo? Did he have a heart murmer? An echo is not usually done, unless they detect a heart murmuer, then they would do an x-ray, to see if the heart is enlarged, if it is, then they do the echo.
Why did the vet go right to the echo first?
Has he had an x-ray or CBC and Wellness blood panel done?
Something does not tract here, either the vet does not seem to know what he/she is doing, or, someone is giving you the wrong info. Call the vet, and see what is going on.
You cannot wait, if the kitty is not eating, should not wait past not eating 2 meals. Kitty can get dehydrated very quickly. You might want to consider going to another vet. Best of luck. Please keep us updated.
