Common Problems

Thank you for using our service. Excessive drooling in pets is often caused by oral or dental diseases. Examine the condition of your pet’s teeth and the interior of your pet’s mouth to determine the cause of excessive drooling. Foreign substances may be irritating your pet oral mucosa or throat. Or, pets may feel bloated or nausea due to various causes (such as digestive problems or intoxication). Or pets salivate as part of a pain response. The exact cause can only be identified by a veterinarian who directly evaluated your pet through a thorough physical examination.

And 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 him 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 his appetite, but veterinarian treatment must be done for the two days of anorexia. As a result, please take him to the veterinarian as soon as possible. You should also think about going to an emergency room.
But if he’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 his normal favorite food or anything with a strong smell, and you may also try forced feeding by putting moist food on his palate. Of course, the need to schedule an appointment with an animal hospital as quickly as possible does not change.

If you have any further questions please ask us. Thank you.
