hi there,
my cat is 10 years old. the past few months he has lost alot of weight. he eats twice a day. we started noticing his hair on his tail is starting to fall out and he has a certain smell to him. he knows what's going on around him, very conscience. it sounds like a digestive problem or infection. is there something on the market I can give him or any home remedies? forget about taking him to the vet. he freaks out when you pick him or put him in a carrier. i appreciate any help anyone can give us. thank you!

It sounds as though he does need to go to a vet. No cat likes being in a carrier (at least mine don't) but if he is sick then it is his best option.

Definately take him to get a check up. Sounds to me like he may be just old and starting to have common problems. I would have him checked out anyhow.

some vets make house calls, ring around the clinics and see if one can visit your home so your cat need not travel.

Maybe you can just call a vet and explain the situation and see if they can offer you any advice over the phone...or as someone else stated, maybe one of them would be willing to do a house call. Keep us posted.

Also, maybe one of the vets can give you a sedative to give him prior so that he is calm enough for you to bring in?

Great idea Nern! I would never have thought of that.
