Two days ago I got a male kitten(Bengal) that's 3 month old. Today particularly he started looking very tired and been sleeping the whole day. It doesn't seem fine and I will be taking him to the vet anyway in two days but was wondering if anyone could help on this since this is my first cat.
- He's been eating very little seen he got to his new home (am guessing he still needs to get used to it ?)
- He was pretty playful until today. Now he seems very tired and just wakes up to go and poop. Am not sure but he also looks sad a bit.
- He's not been drinking water...
- If I try to play with him he just walks away and turns his back.
On Sunday afternoon, after eating some cat wet food mixed with little cooked salmon, he started vomiting. He then had diarrhea (without blood in the stool). Until today he has received subcutaneous fluids because he keeps vomiting, no poo.
The vet thinks it can be an infection or intussusception of his bowels. They will try to take an xray tomorrow in a more specializes clinic to check for the latter.
I asked why not giving antibiotics as a preventive measure but the vet says that is the last resort.
He is now extremely weak and I wonder what can it be - and how long can he survive like this?
Answer The kitten was diagnosed with coccidia after performing a fecal analysis.
