Author Topic:   Cat with Facial Paralysis
posted 03-07-2003 03:49 AM           Edit/Delete Message
I have a 12 year old cat that has recently been losing weight. The left side of her mouth is sagging. She also can't seem to keep her tongue in her mouth like she used to. She is drooling and not caring for herself like she used to either. She has been throwing up more than normal (behavior problem with 2 cats in the house). We are at a loss for what to do. She is terrified of change and travel as she has aged. I am afraid that the trip to a vet would be devestating. She bit me and wet herself when I took her to the vet a year ago then hid inside the house for a month after we got back home. I can't find info about this on the web, please HELP!

i wish i had more info for you but i think that it may be best for you to ask your vet if they will do a home visit, tell them of the signs and symptoms your cat has presented with and when they began.. if they won't do a home visit they may be able to suggest a vet who will or you can search for one who will in your area..
just on a note: the symptoms you have listed sound similar to those a person with a brain tumor would present with.. classic signs and symptoms are nausea and vomiting and severe headache.. an early symptom may also be one sided paralysis of the face or body..
i don't wish you scare you but to let you know that they may be a possibility.. i can't diagnose and tell you what it is for sure
good luck to you and your cat
