Q. My two cats, age 3, had vaccinations a month ago. Since then, they have been lethargic, do not eat and have been losing weight. Help.
A. Have them rechecked by your vet. Submit a stool sample to rule out intestinal parasites or bacterial overgrowth. Blood work (CBC, chemistry panel, urinalysis) can assess major organ function and may diagnose infection or metabolic disease. In the meantime, offer a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts., Serve warm or mix in a teaspoon of baby food to stimulate the appetite.
