Avatar f tn I am so sorry you are going through this with your kitty! Until you are able to get her to the vet, you are going to need to make sure she keeps eating, even if you have to force feed her. She needs to maintain her strength, but with cats, if they stop eating, they are prone to developing feline hepatic lipidosis or fatty liver disease. Some cats can go without eating for quite a long time without developing this, others develop it after not eating for as little as three days.

Avatar m tn It's summer and in Texas that means 90s and above. My three cats live on my back porch (screened in). I noticed my youngest cat was drooling and panting. Concerned, I let her into the house. After about an hour and some cold water, she was fine. Could it have been heat stroke? To prevent it I've been letting the cats stay inside during the day and making sure they have cold water to drink. Any other tips or advice?
Avatar n tn I do have ringing in the ears which I have been able to deal with...but this beating of my heart in my head/ears really does drive me nuts. I know it is a type of tinnitus, but haven't been able to find any info on it except that I read once that it can be produced by plaque build-up in the carotoid (spelling?) arteries. Can someone give me more information on this particular type of tinnitus or tell me what site to go to?
Avatar n tn hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), hypertension (high blood pressure), seizure activity, heart problems are all symptoms of stroke in cats.
Avatar n tn Her butt was up in the air and her tail is curled over at the base of her tail, almost like female cats stand when they are in heat. I pet her and she growled and hissed. Then she jump off the bed and I didn't see her for a couple of hours. Later when she did show up, her lower back is very low to the ground when she walks with her tail still curled and her gate is very slow and stiff especially on the right hind leg. She doesn't want me to touch her or pick her up.
Avatar f tn I'm up in MN visiting relatives this weekend. I went over to Heide's...the home of 3 cats. After being in her apartment and enjoying the company of Mitze for half an hour or so, I had to whip out the Benadryl because I was getting nasal congestion. After about an hour and a half my asthma started acting up so I had to use my rescue inhaler. Meds held me over until I left. My cat allergy isn't cured, but I'm much, much more tolerant of cats.
Avatar n tn Luv, can you tell me what specifically you're asking first? Are you asking for what the signs of birth are? How to deal with the births? What to do in case of a breach kitten? How to treat the mother cat/kittens after the birth? If it's all of the above, that's fine, but that's about two pages of information and I'd just like to be sure before we dump all that on you in a post.
Avatar n tn my husband was in hospital with a possible "mini stroke" He is scheduled to have a MRA in two days. He is still a little "off" in his balance. One dr. thought it was Vertigo.. But he didnt have all the signs. How can we tell if he might be having another stroke?
Avatar m tn If the person is still talking in a slurred manner, then that is one of the signs of stroke. Call for a doctor right away or send him to a hospital in a rush. One part of the face is drooping Another of the signs of stroke is that one part of your face will droop. If you have noticed that the cheek of the person in front of you is drooping, ask them if they feel numb on that part of their face. If so, then you better rush them for an emergency right away.
Avatar n tn Check to see if the pupil (the black part of the eye) constricts (gets smaller, and in cats, more slit-like) or remains the same. If it remains the same, this could signal a problem with the brain (such as stroke, intracranial pressure, etc) or the eye structure. Another question you might ask yourself is if kitty may have ingested something that she should not have.
Avatar m tn This all started when I took in 2 kittens from a lady who has passed them around to a few houses trying to get a cat to nurse them. My cats did so I kept them. There were no signs because their eyes were still shut. Now that they have opened the two I took in have it the worst and online it says its from being to a lot of different homes with different bacteria. I cant loose my two momma cats or have them wind up blind PLEASE HELP I CANT AFFORD A VET!!
484160 tn?1343397921 On Sunday hubby woke up with his left arm numb and tingling. It drove him crazy all day. We figured it was most likely a pinched nerve. Sunday evening, he was still complaining about his arm, and just before he went to bed he mentioned, almost as an afterthought, that he just didn't feel right. I told him to get some rest and that I hoped he'd feel better in the morning. He woke before me on Monday, and went to work.
Avatar f tn I had read yesterday a paper stating there is abundant experimental evidence that repetitive spreading depression contributed to the evolution of infarts in pre-infart tissue in rats and cats; and that BBB disruption may accompany stroke, trauma, and migraine. Also, there was a report which stated that repetitive migraines increases infarct/stroke risk. Yesterday on the news they discussed cortical spreading depression causing migraines with aura.
Avatar f tn Dear S-O, Pink in the urine may represent a little blood oozing from an inflamed bladder lining. Inflammation of the bladder is common in cats and has several causes. The signs of blood, straining and frequent urination together or alone are considered lower urinary tract (LUT) signs and in cats they are spoken of as "FLUTD", feline lower urinary tract disease. In a female urinary obstruction by debris or crystals is rare so the real issue is discomfort.
Avatar m tn My aunt aged 70 is hospitalised due to brain stem stroke and is in ICU. She is yet to regain the consciousness and is still on ventilator. Doctors have stated that there is very little improvement. As of now she lost her limb movements, swallowing capacity and eyelid movements. Though she is chronic diabetic and had bye pass surgery six years back her major organs are functioning normally. It is not clear how long she will be like this. At what point of time recovery process will set in?
Avatar f tn hi, your symptoms are like stroke but not completly, you should check it for other conditions such as bells pulsy or may be other things.

Blood pressure is also a helpful parameter to know in cats. All of these things can be done in a short office visit including a thorough exam, blood draw, and urine sample. No matter what, it will help your cat to get checked out to allow her to feel better with therapies on board.
