MY DEAR SWEET BABY JANE, 8 YEAR OLD SIAMESE, HAS BEEN LOSING WEIGHT FOR ABOUT A MONTH. I TOOK HER TO THE DOCTOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO AS I HAD NOTICED SHE WAS THINNING OUT AND KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG. THEY RAN BLOOD WORK, URINE, ETC. X RAYS DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING . SAID CHANGER HER FOOD. (THIS JUST AS MY OTHER CAT HAS RECOVERED MUCH FROM KIDNEY PROBS. KD SPECIAL DIET FOOD, PREDNIZONE AND AMOXYCILINE)

THEY DID $223 WORTH OF TEST, XRAYS, SYPHONING OFF LIQUID THAT THEY FOUND AROUND THE LUNGS, NOT INSIDE BUT OUTSIDE OF THE LUNGS BETWEEN THE OUTER WALL OF THE LUNGS AND THE CHEST CAVITY. THIS IS CAUSING HER TO BREATH HEAVER AND HER HEART TO BEAT FASTER. THE ASPIRATION OF THE 180 ML OF LIQUID HAS BEEN SENT TO A LAB FOR ANALYSIS.

THEY HOPE TO LEARN FROM THIS WHETHER THERE IS A LEAKY VALVE, (CONGENITAL HEART DISEASE) OR A TUMOR, CANCER.

NEITHER ONE IS A BRIGHT PROGNOSIS.

ANYONE HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS SORT OF PROBLEM. i HAVE BEEN FEEDING THE CAT FOOD WITH A SYRINGE IN HOPES OF KEEPING HER FROM LOSING ANYMORE WEIGHT AND WORSENING. THE VET SAID EVEN WITH REPEATED ASPIRATIONS OF LIQUID THE PROBLEM WOULD NOT GET ANY BETTER.

THE VET SAID NEXT THING WOULD BE ULTRASOUND AND EVEN WITH FINDING THIS OUT , IF THERE IS A TUMOR OR IT IS HEART DISEASE, (SHE THINKS IT IS THE LATTER), THERE WOULD ONLY BE A COUPLE OF MONTHS OF LIFE AND NOT THE BEST QUALITY. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. I FEEL SO BAD

ANY ADVICE FROM ANYONE OUT THERE? YOU CAN EMAIL ME DIRECTLY IF YOU LIKE , BRYON@USEXPRESS.NET

THANKS AND BLESS ALL OUR BABIES,
