Ask a Vet:
Have a pet issue?
previous question: Have a rescue cat that is FIV positive when taken in 2 years ago. The cat is around 3 years old now and has lost appetite, energy, weight and developed jaundice. Have had bloodwork done and the cat was diagnosed with liver failure due to FIV. Vet said that she could try an appetite stimulant to generate appetite and if that did not work that we could bring her in for a vitamin B shot but did not recommend anything else. We are syringe feeding the cat right now several times daily and she is accepting the food but not eating on her own. Do you have any additional recommendations? Vet said a liver biopsy could be performed to make a further determination, however she is hesitant due to the initial diagnoses of liver failure and the cats weakened state.
