Q. My 4 year long haired cat has fluid in lungs has water tablets, refusing wet food sleeping most. Any further I can do?

Answered By

A. You need to take her back to the vet, the medications might not be enough. has she been diagnose with heart failure or heartworm or only water in the lungs? water in the lungs is cause by some other primary condition like cancer, heart failure or a severe infection - these needs to be treated as well together with the water in the lungs. treating the water in the lungs only is not going to solve the problem.
