Thank you for using our service. If your cat is losing weight, not eating, and not drinking water, it is important to take him to the animal hospital as soon as possible. This could be a sign of a serious medical condition, such as kidney disease or pancreatitis, that requires immediate veterinary care.
In the meantime, you can try to encourage your cat to eat by offering him small amounts of a favorite food or a specially formulated veterinary diet. You can also try giving him water using a syringe or eyedropper to ensure that he is getting enough fluids. However, it is important to keep in mind that these measures are only temporary and that the best thing for your cat is to receive prompt veterinary care.
If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
