HCM. He went for over a week without eating and my vet would not listen! I
was so worried about him not eating, but the vet wasn't. I should have taken
him to another VET!!!!!!
By the time we got Quincy to the vet school, altho they said he was in pretty
good shape as far as his disease, he had not eaten or drank in so long, and
he was very weak, he could not pull himself out of it. We lost him last
June, and I still feel terribly guilty for not getting him to another vet
after a couple days of not eating!
