Cat won't eat and is vomiting saliva
I live in a place where veterinarians aren't helpful at all. I have an 11 year old cat who's lost a lot of weight recently. Today she was meowing very oddly and was laying on her side, she's ver slow and before i took her to the vet her pupils were dilated. When i took her to the vet he looked at her mouth and ears and said there was something wrong with her liver, he gave her 2 shots (don't know what they were) and said to come back tomorrow if she still doesn't eat.
Every time i place food in front of her she starts salivating a lot and meows then turns away. Her chin is always dripping with saliva and meows every once in a while. I can tell she is starving but she just won't eat and its breaking my heart. please help
Unfortunately as you know the best way and often the only way to diagnose a illness is with tests. I don’t know what if any tests your vet has carried out and why he suspects a liver problem.
Weight loss can be a symptom of several illnesses from diabetes, heart failure or a thyroid issue. However blood tests would have to be carried out to determine if any of these are a possible cause. I suspect that there are other signs which the vet is taking into consideration.
I’m sorry to say that your bets option is still your vet. When you go ask lots of questions it is your right and a vet should answer all your questions. Don’t feel afraid to ask you need to understand what is going on with your cat and also how the vet is going to try and help your cat.
Also if you’re not happy with your vet, i always recommend going to a different one. It can be amazing sometimes just how different vets can be from each other and how they differ in how they treat animals.
I hope your cat is better soon
