I have a 9 year old siameese cat named doodah. last week my family took her to the vet to have most of her teeth removed because of the bad condition they were in. the vet sent her home in hopes she would eat the next day. The next day she wasnt eating or drinking and we gave her one more day but still nothing. we took her back to the vet where he force fed her through a syringe and gave her an IV of water for 2 days. when she still wasnt eating he sent her home thinking mabey she needed to be somewhere comfortable to her so she would eat. again a 2 days later she wasnt eating or drinking so we took her back and the vet gave us a syringe and some wet food...we have been giving her the right amount of food but after feeding her she throws it all up a few hours later. I have noticed a lump on her shoulder, and she seems dehydrated because her skin doesnt settle quickly when i lift it. she also seems like she is loosing weight. She gives low pitched howls for a little when i walk away from her but when im there she purrs. Along with that she wont even clean herself. My mom says doodah will get some nutrients from the food force fed to her b4 she throws up and soon her liver will get back to normal. IS SHE RIGHT? I think my cat looks worse and IS SHE GETTING ENOUGH FLUIDS BY FORCE FEEDING HER WET FOOD? also WHAT MIGHT BE THE SUDDEN BUMP ON HER SHOULDER?
