This question comes from one of our readers, Theresa, who is concerned about her 13 year old cat. She believes her kitty has lost muscle mass in her back.
She previously had a bad experience with a vet, who examined her 12 year old Maine Coon cat and told her nothing was wrong with him.
Sadly, five days later, he passed away. Understandably, she's very nervous about what the vet might say and what the outcome is going to be here.
My personal advice to her was that I
always try to trust my gut, balanced against what the experts say. If,
after hearing what the vet says, my gut still says there's an issue, I'd
see another vet.
As a cat parent, you know your cat best, and if something's wrong... something's wrong.
Theresa would like more input from other cat parents on what she should know or how to navigate this dilemma.
you have any words of wisdom, or have any advice or experience similar
to this, she'd like to hear what you have to say. Please help her out
and leave a supportive comment below. Thank you!
