hi i went to the vet today because my cat wasnt breathing well ,
he opens his mouth while breathing and all his body moves , he didnt pee for the last 5 days except small amounts ,
she made a sonar and said that his kidney and liver are enlarged-dont know any other word-
massively and maybe is kidney is approaching a failure , i hope not :(
she wrote a prescription and told us to add honey to water and give to him alot ,
i want to know if anyone faced such a situation , we are really afraid and i need hope

Did she give you a more precise diagnosis? The one you have is pretty wide and cover so many illnesses that I find it tough to actually reply well and adequately to your question. Is your kitty neutered? How old he is? What other symptoms does he have? Is this a holistic vet? I can't say I have ever heard of a vet suggesting honey for liver disease - that sounds well, unusual unless it is combined with some other prescriptions and special diets.( By a sonar, do you mean a scan?
The only advice I have is to watch him carefully - make sure he urinates often enough (You can monitor his litter boxes - does he have enough boxes? Make sure to keep them clean.) and make certain he eats and drinks enough water or fluids. Cats are not like us - they do not have the reserve to keep up their electrolytes when they have no incoming sources from food and fluids. So make sure he is eating!!
Why do you say kidney failure? Did the vet say that? If so, why did she treat him so conservatively?

thnx for that reply , i will answer one by one ,
*my kitty isnt neutered and he 1 yr old and 7 month
*other symptoms , he doesnt eat , he is tired and fatigue
*honey with water is instead of glucose and in the meanwhile he is taking
60 CM of glucose daily for 4 days , and honey with water aint for the liver , its for giving him power to survive .
*i dont know what is the difference between sonar and scan , but its the thing used to know the baby gender inside his mother ,
*he urinates sometimes better than before know maybe twice daily ,
*the vet said it might be a beginning of a kidney failure
i will type some of the drugs he take
DDB -tap , urinex cup , coliurinal eff , rowachoal
thnx too much i am waiting for ur reply

here he is

Oh, he's too cute!
My friend's cat had a similar experience but he was very old (18 years) so I don't think the cases are similar enough to draw any comparisons. I wish I had some hope to give out, but I wish you and your baby all the best.

seawind,I am so sorry you lost your kitty,sometimes they are just not strong enough to fight these problems,no matter how hard we try with meds etc..
He was an adorable little guy,if we love them for 1yr or 15yrs,the loss is equally heartbreaking.
You can take a little comfort in knowing,he is not suffering anymore and at peace.:rip:little kitty

Seawinde! I am so sorry for your loss! You can be sure he is waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge!
RIP little one!
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
