    Hi,

    My cat Lily is a year and 3 months and she has been in the vets for the past 3 days. she had a fever and was very lethargic. The took some blood and came back normal and she still had a temperature. they have sent her home as she wasnt wasnt comfortable there. she wasnt eating properly there.

    So she has got home seems a bit better in her self and they have advised me to us I/D food. but she just wont eat it. I have 2 other cats and they were being fed in a different room. Lily escaped and started eating the dry food. not sure what to do? she hasnt eaten properly in a few days either.

    The vet beleive it poss is pancreatitus. but further tests are possibly needed. so shall i let her eat the dry food or continue to try and get her to eat to i/d food.

    Pancrititus can be caused through diet stress or infection. It may be different in cats but my dog has had 3 belts of it and have been on a drip at the vets for 3 days he was really bad with sickness runs and generally walking strangly due to sore tum . I would see if you can get it to eat the vets food as long as your cats drinking. I was told to withdraw food for 24 hours and mine had to have white fish or chicken/rice some thing bland. I have switched his food and so far we havent had it again. He also has no other human food other than fish or chicken. They did a blood test on our dog to confirm his pancrititus and he had antiflams and anti sickness jab. Hope your cats ok.

    My Miniature Dachshund Albert was diognosed with pancreaitis, I have been feeding him a low fat food , he is better but I worry what if even the low fat diet doesn't work. The vets give little advice , just don't feed him table scraps (which I have never done) Al is 2years old
