Question from Diana Pacione

My cat has always been healthy, good looking fur and just healthy. We moved from NY to Florida Oct 2010 and she was doing fine, but I noticed this year she looks extremely thin. I watch her eat, and her urine and feces look normal. Her attitude and manors are still wonderful she seems to be happy. The last bit of information is FLEAS. I believe that both my cat and dog are infested. I have tried everything but frontline and will be ordering in the next couple of days. I dont have the money to bring them to the vet but could these nasty bugs effect my cats health in anyway?

Our Vet Says:

In the case of your cats I suspect a different condition might be responsible for the weight loss. In cats over 10 years of age hyperthyroidism is a frequent condition. The symptoms are: increased appetite and increased water intake associated with weight loss. Also poor coat condition can be noted. The condition can be diagnosed with a simple blood test and treatment is widely available. Please take your cat to a regular check up at your local veterinary clinic.

Ask a Vet winner

I bought advantage 2 for my dogs. I have 4 and three of them weigh about the same. The smaller one weighs about 25 lbs. I need to know why the advantage is not working on them and also if you could recommend a flea and tick medicine that will work. They stay inside more than out. My girls are itching up a storm and I feel bad for them. Please help us. BTW Sable was a few months younger in the picture. Thanks, D. Ford ...?
