Cleo's Progress

One Cat's Struggle with Feline Hepatic Lipidosis

A near-fatty liver experience

Cleo is eating better now, so I'm thinking we have averted a full-blown case of feline fatty liver disease.

This morning when I got up her bowl was licked clean, and she went immediately over to it to ask for more. She didn't eat very much when I gave it to her, but she still is showing that she has some appetite.

I'm still wondering what caused her to stop eating and lose weight like crazy. I've wondered if her teeth are bothering her, although that does seem unlikely at 6 years of age. She's still technically a young cat.

I've also wondered if her previous bout with feline fatty liver disease put stress on her other systems, and caused something else to fail.

I guess there's nothing for it — I'll have to spend the $100 or so for a vet check and blood panel.
