My 16 year old cat who is normally very fit and agile still, has been off her food for a few days and has abdominal swelling but no other symptoms. So we took her to the vets and after examining her abdomen said she had dropsy, he checked her heart and said that was very good and strong and looked at her eyes and said they were good and not jaundice, so he said it isnt he heart but probably her liver. He didnt suggest any blood tests and just gave her a steroid injection and some tablets to take and see how she goes, but i am wanting to know if she should have tests to confirm the cause? and are there any other treatments we can try? If anyone has experience of a cat with this i would love to know more, as i am so worried about her.
