I have a female cat of 14 years and in the last year she has started to lose weight.
I took her to the vet and they discovered that she had received Forl and then pulled two teeth, but otherwise she was completely healthy and alert.
I was asked to keep an eye on her teeth which I do regularly and everything looks good in my mouth.
She has a good appetite, but has become a little more picky than usual, and her coat is as nice as ever, but she has lost a lot of weight.
I have started giving her senior food (dry food) which is high in calories for cats getting thin so I hope this can give her a little more meat on her legs.
What I wonder is if she has simply started showing symptoms of aging or if I should see a veterinarian?
If she loses weight despite a good appetite, I think she has an illness.
It is uncommon for completely healthy cats to lose weight even when they are older.
See a veterinarian for examination and investigation.
You probably need to take a blood sample to check, among other things, thyroid value, kidney and liver value and blood sugar.
