• In the past my cat had loss of appetite, was lethargic and could not keep any food down. We took him to the vet and they did serveral test and everything came out fine. He got better in a couple days. I just got back from vacation and my cat is having the same symptoms again. At what point should I go back to the vet?

    Hi Gabrielle,
    If these signs have lasted longer than 24 hours, I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian as soon as possible. While this may be related or the same thing that caused similar illness in the past, these symptoms are non-specific and can have many other causes as well. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the symptoms and the treatment he needs after they have examined him.
