My cat is not eating or drinking!
(Isle of Wight)
Hi, I think I might have a serious problem on hands, my 6 year old cat (Hans) stopped eating 2 days ago after being sick all over the place.
He has been on the toilet a couple of times, very runny and it looks like there is a lot of blood in the stool. He doesn't drink any water either, not at all himself. Hope you can give me an idea?
Editor's note: Yes, Bjarne, you have a serious problem with your cat there. Your cat needs to see the veterinarian immediately.
Anytime your cat does not eat for more than a day, your veterinarian should be called. If your cat stops drinking, or has blood in the stool, you should take him to the vet right away.
If he's not drinking he's in danger. If he's bleeding on top of that, he's in big trouble and likely won't last long. With diarrhea, vomiting, and not drinking, he'll dehydrate quickly and need fluids.Please take him to the vet today. Do not wait!
As far as a diagnosis, only your vet can do that. He may have a tumor or any one of many other conditions.
I'm sorry to hear that Hans is sick, and I hope he gets better quickly. Please let us know how he makes out.
