Meet Senior Citizen Madeline

Madeline is such a pretty lady! She is a 13yr old DSH Buff colored cat. She is an older kitty has been experiencing some illness associated with older cats. Most recently her appetite has decreased which could be indicative of several things. First things first though the vets need to know what is going on with her organ function by way of lab work. She also needs an appetite stimulant to boost her appetite and get her eating as quickly as possible. Cats can easily and quickly go into liver failure if they are not eating or not eating normal amounts in as fast as 72hrs! This condition is called Hepadic Lipidosis (fatty liver disease). Force feeding will prevent this from happening but continued or long term force feeding is not well tolerated by most cats.

Can you help Madeline get the care she needs as soon as possible?
