Q. My cat was recently released from 24hr fluids and monitoring after poisoning. He is still having balance and neurological issues. Is this normal?
DESTINI R. HOLLOWAY, DVM
A. Residual neurological abnormalities can occur for several days and even weeks following toxicities and poisonings yes. As long as your cat's overall health status is stable I wouldn't worry too much. However if you feel the neurological problems are impeding on our pets quality of life and everyday activities, then ask you vet about possible medications to help support your pet better as they get over their illness.
