Has anyone ever had any experience of a kitten with Hepititis?
Unfortunately, our 6 month old kitten started being ill with sickness/diarrhea symptoms last night.
We contacted the emergency vet, and he asked what he was like, which at the time, he was his usual self apart from the sickness/diarrhea. He advised us to keep an eye on him and phone if he deteriated.
He was ok in himself, so we left it to get an appointment today.
We phoned this morning as he was still having problems and more lethargic (which is understandable after being sick etc) and got an appointment for this afternoon.
This afternoon he just deteriated pretty much instantly and flaked out in the litter tray, not responsive and limp (but still breathing etc).
I've sped him over to the vets and they are now stabalising him (his heart stopped and he stopped breathing, but they've got his heart going again and have said it is a stronger heart beat than before, but his breathing isn't so regular and he is on oxygen).
It's touch and go, but I have been looking over the web to see if any other stories similar have occurred. All I can find is that an issue with the liver doesn't cause illness until it is in very advanced stages of their being a problem.
Have any of you had any experience of liver problems on a cat?
