Mrs. B is not feeling well

On Saturday morning Mrs. B threw up all her food and then would not eat the rest of the day. The same thing on Sunday morning, and yesterday she would not eat at all! Mrs. B always eats like a horse, so I became very worried and took her to the vet today. After a "comprehensive exam", bloodwork and $200+ I still don't know what is wrong with her. She is FIV+ but has never had any health problems and although some of her bloodwork is a bit lower than normal, the Vet said there as nothing that really worries him.

He gave me some "cat lax", because she had some hairball problems before. Otherwise we have no idea what is wrong. He also have her some fluids and and antibiotic shot. She seems OK, except for the not-eating. She walks around, sits at her usual places and acts "normal".

She is drinking water and urinating. I tried giving her some canned food, but she just licked a bit of the juice and did not eat anything.

If she doesn't start eating by Thursday, I have to take her back to the vet.

Of course I'm using a new vet now. I mainly chose them since they are conveniently on my way to work. I had Trouble neutered there last Monday and the doctor I dealt with seemed OK. I guess we will see. I just hope Mrs. B will feel better soon.

We're sending purrs to Mrs B, so that she feels like eating again soon. Maybe some slightly warmed up stinky goodness from the microwave could help her,

warmed stinky goodness may help her appetite. the vet could prescribe a pill to help her w/ her appetite. our vet has done that to get yuki to eat better when she wouldn't hardly eat. it makes a big difference.

I know it's frustrating when you can't figure out the source of the problem.
