Q. Cat found lying in his soaking wet bed, soaked with strong smelling , musky fluid. He has been using the litter box to pee/poo. obese 11yr old rescue
DR. JENNIFER LADD, DVM
A. I think it is best you take you cat into a veterinarian. I'm assuming the musty liquid is urine but your cat needs a thourough exam with some blood work and a urinalysis. I will be available online if you would like to consult prior to going in, but this sounds like a complex medical condition that needs some attention ASAP.
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. Definitely agree with Dr. Ladd, and I'll add that I'd be very suspicious of diabetes, based on all of the urine, the obtundid (non-responsive state), and the fact that he's obese. He needs treatment immediately.
