• I was in the Tigard, OR office 4/21/19. My pet cat Tiger is not eating much of the prescription food (I/F ???) for gastritis. He is lethargic and not acting his usual active self. What should I do? What is the cost to leave him in the hospital to handle his condition of vomiting all food? I need the most effective and cost efficient way to handle this. Not a shotgun, ignore all cost approach. This is urgent. Thank you!

    Hi Jim,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian. It is concerning that Tiger is not eating and is lethargic. The best next steps needed for treatment will depend on what his diagnosis is as well as the treatment that has been done in the past. Your local vet knows Tiger and his medical history so they can give you the best advice on the next steps needed.
