He has not eaten in 2-3 days.

My cat has slowly stopped eating. He has pooped but it has been hair in his poop. He is drinking and peeing but he has kidney issues. He will not eat wet or dry food that I have tried to give him.

Common Problems

Thank you for using our service.
Lack of appetite is a very non-specific symptom that can occur in wide range of diseases, so diagnostic tests chosen by a veterinarian who checked her directly are necessary to identify the cause.
And, even if cats do not eat for at least 48 hours, they will develop fatal liver damage (hepatic lipidosis). So, if your cat hasn’t eaten in two days, it’s important to re-establish her appetite, but veterinarian treatment must be done for the two days of anorexia. As a result, please take her to the veterinarian as soon as possible. You should also think about going to an emergency room.
But if she’s been eating little by little for last 2 days, you don’t need to rush to the emergency room; instead, please attempt to get him to eat her normal favorite food or anything with a strong smell, and you may also try forced feeding by putting moist food on her palate. Of course, the need to schedule an appointment with an animal hospital as quickly as possible does not change.
