• My cat has a immune disease and im trying to get him to eat...when will he eat after the meds...?

    Hi Nicole,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. When you should expect to see improvement will depend on the disease being treated as well as the medication and dosage being used. Your vet knows your cat’s medical history so they will be best able to answer your questions. It is important that you call because not eating in cats can potentially lead to a condition where the body starts to break down fat too quickly which can then overwhelm the liver. Your vet can also give you the best advice on if this is something to be concerned about in your cat.
