I have 2 cats. Both 8 years old. Both stopped eating at the same time about 7 days ago. Have been to the vet, he can't tell anything from just the blood work. If they don't do well this weekend, they will have to go through some very expensive tests. Hoping to avoid that.
Their blood work is as follows:
#1
Cholestorol 237; Tryglycerides 3212
Magnesium 4.3; Platelet Ct. 32
# 2
Cholestorol 179; Tryglycerides 1011
Magnesium 2.6; ALT 133 and PK 1338
don't know what those last 2 stand for.
Trying to figure out if something caused this like the house being sprayed for termites 6 months ago. Fertilizer on outdoor plants, although they don't go outside it would have come in on shoes.
I'm just searching for some sort of help with this.
Has anyone had any similar experience?

i am sorry to hear your kitties are sick, and to have 2 with the same problem is something of a concern. I would certainly be asking for more tests and a definitive diagnosis, and help them on the road to recovery as soon as possible !
GOod Luck !

Hello. Welcome to the site. How are your kitties doing? Any improvements since your post? Are they eating at all? Drinking any water?

One of the problems with reading blood work is that the numbers are not universally the same. Not to mention that it also depends on the lab the vet is using (meaning different labs will have different numbers, but mean the same thing).

Here is a site about understanding your cats blood work. It's very simple to read and understand. If you decide to run some more tests on your kitties you could print the information below and bring it to your vets to help you understand their bloodwork.

Please keep us posted. I hope they will both be okay.

Did you change their food or anything else in the household recently? With both of them doing it I would tend to think it is a behavior issue.
