Pancreatitis feline diagnosis

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis feline diagnosis


Avatar m tn This sounds like a case of feline pancreatitis; an inflammatory condition of the pancreas that results in anorexia, lethargy due to abdominal pain etc. It is harder to diagnose in cats then dogs. An anorexic cat is suceptible to develpoing a secondary case of fatty liver disease and when that happens a feeding tube needs to be placed.
Avatar f tn Vet doesn't think it's neurological, but metabolic. Repeated blood test with special feline pancreatic lipase test for pancreatitis. He ran up the stairs upon returning home. He's still not jumping onto his scratching post, but will onto my lap when I am on a chair or couch. He jumps down fine too. He was already evaluated by an internist 2 weeks ago. She is the one who ran the ultrasounds, and x-rays. There was a professional radiologist report from these images.
Avatar m tn Plus she is more likely to eat random strings, plants, etc, than he is. If he doesn't start eating we will be taking him to a feline internal specialist this week. In the meantime, does anybody have any ideas what this could be? We are doing everything we can to get our furry buddy back to good health.
1176103 tn?1332974613 She was neg for feline leukemia, etc, and we left her to be spayed. However, when her presurgical blood work came in, her bilirubin and another item were "off the charts", we were told she likely had pancreatic or liver cancer. (although skeletally thin, she had a hard distended abdomen so we thought she was preggers.) They observed her all day, and stated that with her lab results, they expected her to be vomiting and have diarrhea and be completely listless.
Avatar f tn I would suggest you ask the Vet to test her for one hard to diagnosis condition that comes to mind. I will send you a link with more info on that, also a link to more info on food allergies/intolerances. In the meanwhile I would try feeding her very small amounts spread out in 4-5 feedings per day of a good grain free wet food that has is a different protein than chicken...there are some suggestions on the site I am sending.
Avatar n tn So rather than going to a Dr I stopped leo from massaging, didn't think or should I say didn't want yet another diagnosis. That was 3 wks ago, and the same day I stopped him he got me good while I was asleep & woke up in agony and vomited. I went to the dr that day, I couldn't stand straight with my entire stomach and chest hurting. Getting to my point. I've been hospitalized twice in 3 wks, 5 days than 4 days now home dropping weight and in pain.

12679876 tn?1426981493 Hi Darth, I think he should have an ultra sound or x-ray of his stomach and bowels also, if possible. There may be an obstruction or it could be pancreatitis. Blood tests are only part of the info for diagnosis. Good that he is getting his teeth taken care of that can be very painful to eat. My cat was throwing up for 3 days , was not dehydrated either, but the ultra sound and x-ray was needed to complete the picture. Just sayin---that is what I would do.
Avatar f tn He was 14 1/2 years old, and had been blind with diabetes and feline aids for a few years. He was gradually losing weight and was down to 6 1/2 lbs. I'd been taking him to the vet for the past couple of weeks due to constant diarrhea, and this last week he was staying there every day to receive IV fluids. The xray didn't show anything, and the vet didn't feel any masses. He would urinate in the litter box if I put him in there, otherwise it was on the floor beside it.
Avatar n tn She doesn't have feline HIV or leukemia. He gave her broad spectrum antiobiotics and gave me some to give her now she's back home. But she still won't eat - she's lost loads of weight, and she's still vomiting - though it's only liquid now. The vet didn't tell me how to keep her energy up or feed her with a syringe or anything and I don't htink they supplemented her the whole week!
541150 tn?1306037443 I'm sorry to hear about this. luv. You're right, it's a sucky diagnosis; no mammal should ever get this illness. You may want to try (with your vet's approval) giving your cat the Yucca product I mentioned elsewhere. It does wonders for inflammation and is considered a natural antibiotic. The only drawback is it doesn't taste very good. Otherwise, you can try using one of the herbal calmers that has skullcap in it.
Avatar n tn Hello! I've an 11-year old long-haired feline who has megacolon. We move around quite a bit, and I have had to shuffle him between vets, and am about to shuffle him again. Four years ago, just a few months before we were about to move overseas, he developed a constipation problem. His American vet gave him an enema and put him on stool softeners to be used only occasionally. Once we moved overseas, he had several enemas before his vet put him on liquid paraffin every day.
Avatar f tn I had given her fluids at home and the next day when I brought her for an ultrasound of her abdomen, they thought from an xray that she had possible pancreatitis and had given her more meds for that, she had a large bruise at the site of the fluids. That day her dvm told me she was severely anemic and she thought Angie was dying... the dvm was very upset- she was crying. I took Angie to a speciality hospital where she was given iv fluids, pain killers and tested.
4520139 tn?1355852769 I tend to trust the #3 Vet the most(other than the convenia) b/c of the more indepth diagnosis he gave you and noticed more issues with your kitties teeth than did either of the other 2. but again if your just as comfortable with one where you live and thats your decision.... I assume you've made your mind up by now given you had to let the clinic know and of course had to take all food and water away from kitty....
