Barbara Ellen’s beloved cat Checkers is not eating and vomiting up whatever is force fed. Appetite pills haven’t worked, nor anti-nausea ones. Taking him to the vet this morning for another consultation. Nothing tried in a month has worked for long. Poor Checkers is starving. At this rate he won’t live long.
UPDATE: Checkers has a broken tooth whose pain may be preventing eating. Opiod pain med prescribed will stimulate appetite (does for cats but not in humans) Blood work pretty normal. Anti-nausea injection may help for 36 hours. Tooth extraction be later in week after pain med had chance to take hold, otherwise general anesthesia be problematic.
